A giveaway

Lovely Gina is having a giveaway on her blog.....go take a peek.....on second thought, stay away!!!  I want to win!!!

Another little stand up thingy I made from a vintage Victorian graphic.....with German glass glitter.....

These eggs are paper mache that I covered with strips of paper from an old dictionery, mod podge, etc., then made cut outs of bunny and lamb images and made them dimensional by putting a pad between two images, also used German glass glitter.....the little lamb is from the Graphics Fairy!!!

Bits and Pieces

I've had such a good time this week visiting all the wonderful Spring parties!!! Such inspiration and wonder at all the talent out there!!!  Bloggers rule!!!

However, I just couldn't get my act together to join in.....I need some kinda Spring tonic or something, today I managed to take a few pics of just bits and pieces all over the house, not with any plan in mind,  because I want to say Happy Spring/Easter to all my bloggy buddies......

This of course, is my kitchen window ledge that I change with the those chicks!!!

The marble and onyx eggs I have collected for more than 40 years and come from all the places I've visited and some were gifts from friends and my daughter.

This is my little egg tree I just discovered in the basement...don't know where its been all this time....have to shop down there more often!!

And some sparkley carrots for you know who......

Reverse Copy Cat

Country Living magazine arrived yesterday.....and look....on the cover is the PB cubby shelf unit I just love and purchased 2 years ago!!!  They have theirs all decorated for gardening, while mine holds tons of little things and hangs in my back hallway.  I always wanted to join in on the Copy Cat challanges but never did....this one is in reverse I think.....anywho....take a peek!!!

How sweet is that????

My unit is quite a bit darker than theirs...

It was hard to take pics because of the darkness, had to do some adjusting....but I love this unit, it weighs a ton and I had to hire a handyman to hang it up for me, but it was worth it for sure......he drilled right through the back of it and anchored it to the wall, he said its there forever!!!

Spring is dancing through my front door!!!!

We had two days of amazing snow while the sun was shining, and very cold.......but tomorrow will be in the 60's....very softly Spring is dancing through my front door into the foyer.....take a peek....

I shopped my basement to find these wonderful red tulips and bunny on a stick from Pier basement aka, The Abyss, is my botanical garden filled with the remains of my floral design days!!!  Oops, you can see part of gray haired me in the little mirror with my trusty camera!!!  The quote on the mirror is from Ecc."to everything there is a season....."

I love this sweet book by ME, her art work is so fresh and innocent......

I made these little eggs by mod podgeing strips of paper from an old dictionary to plastic eggs and making cutouts from clipart from the Graphics Fairy....some glitter and florals, and "poof"..... an Easter basket appeared.....
