THE GOODIES TABLE
(Probably mid90s)

I have always loved skirted tables, and almost every room I create winds up with at least one.

Among my early efforts was this little Easter setting which was in the kitchen of my McKinley wallhanger house. (The kitchen window had balloon shades made of the same yellow checked gingham.) Now during the Easter season it either occupies a small glass cheese dome in my kitchen or sits on the sofa table next to one of my display lamps.

In those pre-computer days one could buy packets from Lisa Van Scyoc (not sure of spelling) containing great little paper projects and directions for making all kinds of themed goodies to go along with the various fold-up items. Unfortunately, I cannot remember her trade name and I understand she no longer sells these, but they were a great resource before the internet and printers made such projects so easy to make oneself.

The little cartons and packages on the table I scored, cut, folded and filled with bits of cotton or Fimo eggs.

This package includes real Easter grass snipped finely.

There are malted milk and chocolate covered candy eggs,

and jelly bean eggs, all made from Fimo.

The Easter bunny is my creation. His body is made from different sizes of pompoms. His ears are little slivers of painted paper and his somewhat-misshapen fat cheeks are made of tiny white pompom halves.

The little Fimo pips were made from Lisa's directions.

Two items from Lisa's Easter packet were used in my Easter Egg Dyeing Dome: the chocolate egg carton (the chocolate marshmallow eggs in the carton were made from brown-covered white Fimo) and the box for the chocolate bunny. The chocolate bunny in the box (although hard to see here) is holding a carrot and is a repainted piece.
