Today, it is all about lemons! Lemon recipes and a Spring Table with a lemon centerpiece. Also, the casual chinos and a no-iron linen top that I’m loving. It’s time for my five faves with Cindy and Annie.
Greetings from my sister, Teresa’s highrise apartment in San Diego. It’s great to be together, go out for Mexican food, cook, walk the dogs and just be together. It’s been colder than normal but look at the view from her balcony.
1. Soft Chinos And Linen Top for Spring and Summer
This is in the communal top living room in Teresa’s building. Great views. I mentioned that I had purchased these casual slim chinos from Ann Taylor Loft (they were in this fashion collage). The pants are 30% off and now with an extra 20% off. Lots of colors.
Teresa tried mine on and ordered a pair, too.
I rolled the hem here, but you don’t have to. I’m wearing a Petite 6 (normally I have to size up to a Petite 8 or a 6 regular). The denim jacket is from our recent Denim Jacket post.
I ordered the chinos in white as an alternative to white jeans…and to take advantage of the sale.
Also, I walked around Teresa’s nearby shopping center in those platform espadrille sandals and my feet were fine. 🙂
This is also in Teresa’s building…the library.

2. Easter Spring Table With Bunnies and Lemons
I set the table for Spring when my mother-in-law and sister-in-law were visiting us in Jacksonville. The moss-covered bunnies were in the discount section at the front of our Target.
I added ribbons around their necks and Lindt Carrot Shaped Milk Chocolates. We used lemons as an easy centerpiece.
3. Lemons Recipes
While at my sister’s apartment, Howard made Annie’s Smashed Potatoes with Green Goddess Dressing (there is some lemon juice in it) and it was delicious! We had it with filet mignon and salad.
For the Spring dinner (with the lemon centerpiece), I made this winner of a lemony blueberry tart again. This time I scattered fresh blueberries on top in addition to the ones baked in the tart. We served it with fresh whipped cream.
If you have any left, you can freeze it for a week or so.
4. The Painting My 93-Year-Old Mother-In-Law Made For Us
Recently, my mother-in-law took up a paintbrush again and it has given her great creative motivation. She’s been making art for everyone in the family and for her friends. Mostly of flowers…we both share a love of those. This is one of the paintings that she gave us.
5. Comfortable Transitional Modern Counter Stools
Everyone gravitates to sit in these low back counter stools from Crate and Barrel. The low back gives you a little support but remains unobtrusive.
