My baby sister came to visit for the first time
since we moved into our new home!
She loves yellow roses, so I had this bouquet waiting
for her in the guest room,
along with some chocolate candy on each bed.
She & her husband live in Gilbert, AZ
so we mostly go to see THEM.
They're not big on Ohio weather! LOL
It was chilly & rained just about the entire time they were here.
We had my two other sisters & my brother, along with his wife
join us for a big family dinner.
One vegan, three diabetics & one gluten-intolerant person
made menu planning VERY challenging!
I served beef tenderloin, baked potatoes
coated with kosher salt & olive oil...
not butter (animal product)
Marinated green beans, Cowboy Caviar
(both Vegan recipes later this week)
My sister & I shopped a few rainy days & found this beehive dispenser at
Tuesday Morning for only $20!
That's my contribution to "Nifty Thrifty Tuesday".
You will be seeing it used in many more tablescapes,
especially out in the Gazebo!
Since our Spring flowers are just beginning to open,
I had a few indoors for splashes of color.
Can't forget to show you one of the desserts!
Whats left of them, anyway.
I'm SO bad about taking photos once everyone arrives.
These "clothespin cookies" didn't fit anyone's diet...
they're full of butter & fat & sugar
but they were soooo good & a family tradition from long ago.
I'll share that recipe later too but I'm warning you...
it is very labor intensive!
I'm joining The Tablescaper for her

Please stop by their beautiful blog to see all the pretty participants?
Thanks, too, for visiting The Gazebo House.
I wish all of you could have come to dinner with us.
We had a blast!
