Birds of a feather

I received the tags I ordered from Dawn at ~The Feathered Nest~ yesterday. I was anxious to receive them, because I have a perfect blank wall to put them on. Unfortunately, it's kind of gloomy in the living room today, and even though I took lots of pictures of the group of four, hung 2 x 2, they were either really crooked, too dark, too reflective, or just didn't turn out right.
The frames are identical, purchased at Target just after Christmas for $1.25 each. I bought a dozen frames, all that they had in stock.
They've been empty, propped up against the wall just waiting for somebody to fill them.
A friend is coming over for dinner this evening, so I'm in "fluff & clean" mode. On the menu--Chicken Oscar, one of my favorite chicken recipes. It looks so spring-like, topped with asparagus, crab, and hollandaise. Dessert is still up in the air, but I did bring home The Cake Book from the library yesterday. I'll have to flip through that later this morning to see if anything inspires me.

"Fluff and Clean" mode...I hear ya!

The tags are really nice. I know what you're talking about with the reflections, though...it's such a challenge, but you did great and I bet that they look marvelous.

Hope your supper was a lot of fun and that you're still enjoying your company even now.

Have a wonderful Easter!

I fluffed and cleaned for Easter, but now that it's over it doesn't even look like I did anything LOL

These looks beautiful!
