     "When Good Friday was near we had great preparations, for often visitors, relations and friends came to see us to tell us the news and enjoy the food. My mother baked hot cross buns for they were not sold in the village. Also she made Easter cakes, similar to those that were sold in the shops and made at the little market towns in the hills. We made our own Easter cakes as follows, but we often bought a few delicate thin trifles which were more professional than our own."

A lovely comment --- and a sweet picture. Happy Easter to you and yours, Clarice. Thank you for always inspiring me!


Ahhh, it sounds like the perfect, peaceful, old-fashioned Easter. I hope the Storybook Woods family had that kind of Easter too!

Have a wonderful Passover / Easter, Clarice! I thought of your family while visiting the Holacaust Museum last week. Have you been? Moving, yet a beautiful memorial...


Clarice and family...
Enjoy a loving peaceful Easter.
