The Dancing Ballerina of Depression Glass

Depression Glass makes me happy! 

No, not depressed as one would think from the title, but wildly happy!

Well, wildly may not be the term I am looking for. But I do love it.

Currently, I am working on a tablescape for Easter and using my green Depression glass which brings me to an explanation of these dishes.

Perhaps you have not heard of Depression Glass?

You may not know the term, but you most certainly have seen various pieces over the years. 

Let me enlighten you…you know how I like to enlighten people….just ask the Captain! 🙂

Under The Weather, But I’m Back!

Under The Weather, But I’m Back!

Wow! I came down with a bug of some kind that layed me out flat on my back for a while.

It didn’t last long but I was miserable, so I did what I like to do when I am miserable….I stayed in bed.

And drank plenty of liquids.

And watched a lot of TV.

Mainly I watched a lot of the basketball games in the NCAA tournament, called March Madness!

Coastal Florida Seafood Boil And Tablescape!

Coastal Florida Seafood Boil And Tablescape!

Whoopee!!!

Today is the first day of Spring and a time of the year full of rebirth and new growth. I have always loved Spring and living in SW Florida our coastal climate for me is like a delicious frosting on a perfectly made cake. 

Living on the coast also means lots of fresh seafood, which has always been a favorite of mine….and it is the season of the stone crab which means fishermen are checking traps and bringing in all kinds of fresh seafood to our markets and restaurants.

Shamrocks, St. Patrick’s Day & A Pot O’ Gold

Shamrocks, St. Patrick’s Day & A Pot O’ Gold!

Shamrocks! Four Leaf Clovers! Leprechauns! …. and a pot of Gold!

Sometimes, we get a bit confused regarding shamrocks and four leaf clovers!

I believe it has to do with thinking of luck and the four leaf clover, which are synonymous.
