Just for us Girls

It's always fun to prepare a little lite lunch
for just the girls. My husband doesn't care for
scones and they are one of my favorite things.

Love serving a salad in a large seashell.
Fresh spinach with strawberries and avacado
plus candied nuts. Yummmy

I made chocolate chip and apricot scones and served them
with lemon curd

I found these blue goblets in New Jersey
at a garage sale 40 years ago and I still love them.
I think I paid about $3 for each one. I do love a bargain.

I wish the weather would clear up and give us a little sunshine
I think my pictures would be a bit brighter if I had the right light.

These are some of our seashells that we sell at
Continental Chocolatier. You can check out
our web site at:
It is still under construction but you can still view it.

I am a nut for yellow and blue. Love French Country stuff.
I added a bit of color with some of the material I had left
over from the table cloth so I just cut a short piece and
tied it around the napkin. Added a little ranuculus and there ya go

If you are interested in any of the seashell candies we
can offer you the wholesale prices if you can order
in the quantities listed on our website at -
