New Treasures and Bible Study

After we left Cristy's tea last Saturday, we made a stop at World Market.  All their stores have closed in my area, and I always enjoy looking at their large selection of varied merchandise.   They had a Walker's Shortbread Commemorative tin of the Royal Family for $14.99, and one came home with me.

Coincidentally, on Sunday a couple at church gifted me with a commemorative teacup by Paragon that was made in 1953 for Queen Elizabeth II's coronation.

Today was ladies' Bible study at my house.   I really haven't decorated much for Easter, but I did put together a small vignette.

After working our way through Genesis 31-35 [studying Leah, Rachel, and Dinah], we had a simple lunch of Tomato Dill Bisque Soup, and Cheesy Herb and Artichoke Chicken Pull Apart Bread.  My girlfriend also brought a large bowl of fresh fruit for dessert.

The next time we meet will be after Easter, so I used my new bunny plates purchased at HomeGoods today.  This has been the year for bunny dishware.  I've seen them at several stores in various patterns.

I served the Lemon Meringue Green Tea that I recently reviewed on my blog from Adagio Teas.  The ladies loved it.  The Tomato Dill Bisque Soup was a recipe that I got from Magnolia and Ivy when I took their training in 2002.

The Cheesy Herb and Artichoke Chicken Pull Apart Bread is a recipe by Perdue Chicken that I found on the Internet.  It's wonderful.  The recipe and "how to" video can be seen here.  I forgot to take a picture of my loaf of bread, so I'm borrowing from Perdue Chicken.

Do let me know if you try it.  I'm certain you'll like it!


  1. I love World Market - don't get there often enough. And the teacup is a treasure! Those bunny plates are adorable. I DID get to Home Goods on Saturday but the one where I stopped was out of the plates. They only had a platter left. I'd have been sorely tempted to let some of those plates hop into my cart, had they been available! The bread sounds delicious and interesting, excuse me now while I go check out that link.

  2. Fun finds there (and what a great teacup gift!), and I'm happy to hear the ladies' Bible study is still going strong!

  3. Love the commemorative tea cup! What a treasure!
