I have wanted a pineapple just like this once since I first moved to Charleston. Of course I finally have one now that I have moved. Apparently pineapples are a sign of hospitality because when ship captains and crew came back from sailing the sea they would place fruit on their fence posts to signal their presence, inviting in visitors.

A couple weeks ago I participated in a Martha Stewart live chat on Twitter. It was about Easter and apparently participating entered me to win a prize from Martha Stewart's Craft collection. I asked two questions, first whether it is appropriate to request an Easter gift from my husband, and second, what I should cook on Easter because I am a vegetarian and it was my first vegetarian Easter (we had spaghetti). The Martha representatives only answered my first question, supporting my gift request. A few days later they told me I won! My prize was Martha Stewart glitter (which of course I already own - but the prize was different colors) and craft glue. Below is the first project made with my free loot.
