THE BLUEBIRD OF HAPPINESS.....

What a beautiful today it was today.....SPRING at it's best....and they (meaning the weathermen) promise 2 more days that are even better !
Lots of birdies "flew the coop" today and I am happy they found good homes.
The Bird Soup seems to be a hit....the picture is how we are serving it ....along with "sweet croutons"...(toasted pound cake)! We are also having Blueberry Tea.....ahhhh the Bluebird of Happiness is at THE CINNAMON STICK !!
The soup has a teaspoon of lavender in it and I am getting some "culinary lavender" from Henny Penny's Country Store....everyone who has tried the soup loves it and is happy to get the recipe, but it is hard to find the lavender - woohoo...now we will have some to sell in individual 1 oz. and 2 oz. packages. An ounce of lavender is quite a bit.....!!!The store still looks a bit "spacey" with Easter goodies all away - but soon the garden goods will start appearing and we will be back to normal....

The above pics are of the tiny cloches that we sell.....just perfect for a bouquet in an antique creamer ! We also have cloches in 4 other sizes.
AND, here's an olde crow that nested in a vintage ice cream holder from the soda fountain days!

The price tags I made for all the "birdy" items are from a "FREE" graphic from Dame Penniwig's Blog... http://penniwigs.blogspot.com - I printed them on aged card stock and they look really neat on everything!

Well I'm just fascinated with that bird soup and the idea of the sweet croutons floating in it has me wishing for a cup of it BAD!!! What a unique idea you came up with!!!

Those tiny cloches are adorable, bet they will get snapped up fast.
