Martha's Vineyard Inn: "Nantucket Pie." I am currently on a Susan Branch Blog "fling," so anything Martha's Vineyard is high on my priorities. This Inn happens to be in Michigan, but the name caught my eye... How beautiful! This recipe is perfect for three actually with some fruit and a bit of raisin toast... If you haven't visited Susan's blog, check it out on my sidebar or with the above link. I am having so much fun "meeting" with her and watching her little kitties at play... Life seems beautiful on the island...
and right here in Mom's warm, toasty kitchen... Come over for a cup of tea! As you can see, I have a golden tin of Harney and Son's Royal Tea tucked in behind the nest... It's a fairy-tale treat created for William and Kate's wedding... Ah.... another post!

Mr. Bunny, a gift to Mom from a dear friend, presides over the mantel festivities... The little bottle brush tree sparkles on the end by a Snow Bunny.... from another friend to me! and a cute Marie Osmand Easter doll sits on Mom's side of the mantel...

It's here in the air... I feel it even in the midst of a cold misty morning... I suppose since we have been blessed with the mildest winter (so far) of my memory, we must be pushing the envelope. I know I am, and that's unusual for me, the inveterate winter-lovin' woman that I am.
HERE. This is her picture, but mine looked just the same... even to the little freckles of pepper!!!
Tonight my friend is coming for a pizza and Survivor Season ? on television... Your tribe has spoken! I have a killer "Survivor" Unit for World Literature... I used it a few years back, and it was fun except it made my kids mad at each other... We are truly only a few inches past all that barbaric-ness anyway... I fear.
Have a great weekend. Start it early with a great drink or special coffee in the morning... I plan to!
