It’s time to move on…

….to chocolate that is!  The afternoon at work is dragging and the coffee stopped working hours ago.

I know, just through the door and down the hall, awaits that wretched machine….the vending machine. It eagerly awaits my change or credit card (fancy, fancy now) to buy its over-priced goodies. Sadly, the machine has one of my favorite “go-to” candies of all time, encased behind its glass.  The one, the only, “nem-a-nemes” (as I used to call them).  The rest of the world just calls them M&Ms.

Those beautifully colored, bits of chocolate, adorned by the “m”.  Some colors have changed over the years, flavors have been added, some are even seasonal, but there will always be the one and only, original M&M.  It gets me through the day.  Brings chocolate cheer in a small brown bag with white lettering.

ALL HAIL THE M&M!!!

(Ok, that’s the chocolate talking.  lol)

A Cute Easter Centerpiece

Published April 4, 2015 by lynn k scott

This morning, while out grocery shopping, I picked up a few candy eggs.  I probably could have chosen a brighter color, but I was also being cheap.  The pink wrapped eggs were less than a $1.50, so I went with it.  I wanted to make an Easter centerpiece for the diningroom table.

You will need:  several wine glasses, tulle (or Easter grass), candy and a tealight (or votive) candles.

When I got home, instead of using Easter grass, which goes everywhere, I opted to utilize some leftover tulle.  Cut long strips of the tulle from the roll, and then bunched it up.  Having already added five candies to each wine glass, I pushed the tulle in and flipped the wine glass upside down.  I had to add a bit more tulle to each glass so the candy stayed at the top of the glass. When I was satisfied with how the glass looked, I added some white tealights to the top of each glass.

3 wine glasses - easter

Now, my table isn’t overly large, unless I add extra leaves to extend it.  I just made three of these and put them in a row on the table.  I used a pastel green tablecloth and it made a really cute, simple and elegant centerpiece.  Now to find some cute placemats for the table and I’ll be all set.
