Easter Brunch

I hope you are having a happy Easter.

Our son, daughter-in-law and grandkids came over for Easter brunch.  I made these
cute bird nest I found over at Our Adventures In Home Improvement.

We also had crescent roll "carrots" filled with homemade chicken salad and fresh fruit.  Thanks to Living My life On Purpose for sharing how to make the "carrots".

The banana bread was delicious!  The secret to making it moist is substituting applesauce for the eggs and oil.  The ham and cheese quiche was the last thing to make it to the table and I completely to take a picture.

We all enjoyed a casual brunch and spending time together as a family.

I hope your day was special!

Farragoz Giveaway

Hi everyone.

I have a fabulous giveaway for you! 

Farragoz  has generously offered one of my readers a 12 month online furniture painting course where you will learn the art of patina.  The course runs over a period of 12 months and consists of 5 modules with easy step-by-step instructions.  No artistic ability required!

(I was given the course to review but all comments are my own)

Here are just a few things you will make during this course...

I am in the process of taking the course and it has been fun learning to make my own gesso, paints and stains.  It is amazing how simple and inexpensive they are.  The course also teaches you how to layer paints to get the patina of antique pieces. 

You can see my completed pieces HERE and HERE.

Check out the Farragoz website to see all the projects you will work on and to learn more about the course.

The Giveaway will run through April 28th.

 Best of luck!

On to the Giveaway....
