Easter With Friends

We spent Easter with our good friends Diane and Danny starting out with brunch. Before having dessert, we all decided to take a walk. Diane and I veered off course for a bit to do some Easter sea glass hunting.

The tide was coming in fast, so we had to abandon walking on the shore and finish our walk on the road.

It seems like just overnight the blooms have now popped out everywhere!

After our walk, it was time for dessert of my white bunnies and pecan linzer cookies (recipe found here).

Here's my Easter bonnet cake I tried to make. I used a shell shaped cake pan and a small mixing bowl to bake it in. I really didn't have a plan to decorate it, so I just stuck some of the white chocolate candy shells and little blue pearls on the top. Oh well, it kind of looks like an Easter bonnet, sort of. But at least it tasted good.

It was such a beautiful day, so after dessert we decided to go outside and fire up the raku kiln to further enjoy this warm spring weather.

Here's the first pot fresh from the fire.

And Diane with a couple of her masterpieces.

As I type this, Henri is firing up the last pot and our friends have left for home. It was such a wonderful Easter and I just noticed I even feel the sensation of a faint sunburn on my face. I hope your Easter was wonderful too!

What a wonderful Easter day you had. So special that you could share it with friends. Your desert goodies looked wonderful - you can tell that you spent some time making them - they were all beautiful.

Love the pottery also - what a fun thing to do with friends.
