  1. DAMSON VODKA AND EASTER BUNS?! Right, I'm on my way down!

  2. I like your plates and the cakes look yummy. Have a good weekend.

  3. Oh cool. Think I like the shot glasses best! I like this blog more and more!

  4. no way I'd show the condition of my kitchen table right now.......

  5. Those are the biggest shot glasses I have ever seen! Cheers!

  6. I'm with dottycookie. Is this an invite?

    I am very impressed that you can get through a whole day with the same tablecloth. Your family are clearly a lot more focused with the jam.

  7. oooh, smarties and damson vodka, what a combo! You guys are in for a great weekend!
    Those aren't shot glasses, they're tumblers!!
