Gosh Darn You, Martha Stewart!

I fell in LOVE with the cover of Martha’s Easter Issue. I was positively obsessed!!


I mean, what’s not to love, right??

So, with my characteristic over-enthusiasm, I decided to recreate Her basket for my daughter’s in-law’s Easter Table. That won’t be too hard, I told myself.

Around two hundred dollars’ worth of Martha Products later, I have a reasonable facsimile of Her Easter basket, if I do say so myself. Minus the adorable lop-eared bunny, of course!




Martha may not have a warm and fuzzy personality, but She’s still one of my Pantheon of Women Goddesses. Hey, Athena wasn’t Miss Congeniality either! And who else could have had a bunch of federal prison inmates crafting?? To gild the lily, She’s an avid beekeeper too!!

She’s the tops in my book.

Have a wonderful Easter, Martha.  I was just kidding You in the title of my post.  🙂

    That was playful! Did you get the “gosh darn” from watching the MONK TV show?

  2. Wow — you nailed it! I also really love Martha — I think she’s pretty awesome. =)

  3. Love this post, Yes, she is an avid beekeeper which is a huge asset. Also, I don’t ding her on the prison sentence, that could have happened to anyone. I really do think that she does things right!

  4. Wonderful basket – and post. Martha, and, of course, are always a source of sweet inspiration. Have a nice weekend, Deborah, and take pride in the basket around your dol’s Easter table.

  5. What a lucky daughter-in-law to rate such a grand basket. You did a wonderful job of duplicating Martha’s. That’s quite an expensive project though. I think a lot of Martha too. She’s an overcomer from way back. Why shouldn’t we give everything we do our best effort. Miss the bunny though.:)

    I like yours better. Sorry, Martha. 🙂
