Bunny Pillow, Cross Stitch and Pistachio Layered Dessert
For today's Spring tea, I have some things I'd like to share with you. Let's
sit and have a slice of Pistachio Layered Dessert and a cup of tea. The gorgeous pink roses were found at a local grocery store, as a rainy day special, for $2.00!!! Isn't my cabbage teapot with the bunny peeking out the top, so cute?
This Spring Cross Stitch is a Lizzie Kate design that I finished last Spring. I did it on linen and changed some of the colors up a bit to
suit my tastes. I've done all four seasons and use the same frame for all of them.
My Petit Point teacup is by Royal Albert, and found on Ebay. When I
opened up the box, one of my granddaughters was here and she said, "Oh
Nana. it looks like cross stitch!"
I turned over my sweater pillow that I had made for Valentine's Day, and
used buttons to make a bunny. My inspiration was from a catalog from
Pier 1, which I've shown below. I just laid my buttons around until I
liked the shape and then I hot glued them on. You can see my heart
button pillow here.
Here's my inspiration for my bunny pillow.
For the Pistachio Layered Dessert, you can find my recipe that I shared, which
can be found here.
This time, instead of using Oreos in the crust, I used a sleeve of
Lorna Doone cookies, along with the melted butter. They're both good!
