Fields of Joy

Let's wander slowly through the fields
Slowly, slowly through the fields....
I touch the leaves that touch the sky
Just you and I...
through fields of joy.




All trouble slowly fades away
Slowly, slowly fades away...
I hold your hand inside my hand...
Across the land...
through fields of joy
 
 
 
 
The sound of music that we hear
The blend of colors in the air
All cities, mountains disappear from view
All truth and beauty near to me and you...




With you through the fields...
With you through the fields...
With you through the fields...
The fields of joy.




Let's wander slowly through the fields
Slowly, slowly through the fields!!
I know our love will never die
Just you and I
Through fields of joy!
Through fields of joy!

I hope you are enjoying the beautiful springtime.  We have had a wonderful abundance of growth and a plethora of different species blooming.  The recent heavy rains combined with the cool (but not too cool) to warm (but not too hot) weather and a culmination of other factors have brought us the phenomena of what is called the SuperBloom in nearby Lake Elsinore, California.  It is truly a sight to see, and in the several years I have lived in this area, I have never seen such beauty. 


I hope you all are enjoying the beautiful bounty of Spring!!


Until next we meet,

-Y

Set Your Table With Flair--Just Add Green



Hello, all!  Hasn't the weather been curious?  We have had rain by the bucketful followed by very crisp winter-like days, and just this week, an abundance of sunshine.  Oh, California weather, you are stanchly unchanging in that you are always changing.  Constantly.  I am glad though, that the drought has finally gone! 




Saint Patrick's Day is this weekend, and it may be cliché, but the best way to decorate for this fun day is to just add green!  This setting is super simple, unfussy, and festive.  A charming celadon topper adorned with pretty china and uncomplicated flowers seemed like a great way to keep things low-key this year.









A recent find are these beautiful white and green antique dishes.  This gorgeous china is elegant, yet when paired with a fun cabbage saucer and a cupcake prepared in a silicone "terra cotta" pot, the setting becomes much less frou-frou, more lighthearted, and definitely indicative of the forthcoming springtime, which I await eagerly each year.







How easy is this!?  I used a heart-shaped mold to make candy melt shamrocks and adorned each little cupcake "pot" with a festive green ribbon.  A sprinkle of green and white sugar completed the potted cakes.







This cake, which is served on the matching platter, is delightfully chocolate decorated with white frosting, green and white sugar granules, and a hand-drawn candy melt shamrock.  Easy!







I added a few cute napkins for dainty dabs...aren't they fun!?






The completed tablescape:







I hope the weather is fair where you dwell...until next we meet, Happy Saint Patrick's Day!
