A touch of Spring.....

Happy Saturday fellow bloggers!!!  We had a bit of sunshine today so I was able to snap a few pics.........

Winter is far from over in our neck of the woods in the Northeast......and I do love it so!!!  However, I've found myself craving something soft, fresh and pretty to look at!!!  So........the buffet is always my starting point...........gone are the bright and dark of the holidays, all those pine cones, snowmen and greens...........some pastels have arrived!!!  This work is not done, just putting stuff down and thinking about it...........


and did you spot my new foil rabbit????  


 Isn't he majestic?????  The new shiny tinsel grass I ordered online---------so there goes my vow to NOT buy anything else EVER.............this gal cannot resist the sparkle and shine!!!!

Also bought a box of foil chicks...........love that TJMaxx!!!

Other end of the buffet......a work in progress, just putzing around!!!

Now, I had plans to sew this bunny, but for $9.99, why bother???  I hate buying things from China, but how can one compete with those prices..........I don't know..........


Have I shared with you the nests I have been felting???  They are so fun, as long as you don't poke your fingers!!!




I've also been making little Easter/Spring boxes......cute???

That's it for now, my friends, wishing you a lovely weekend!!!!

Ya know, I've been dying for the soft pastels too, but being in the dead of winter, taking out my Easter goodies didn't seem right - I still have my manger on the mantle! I might just give in. And of course, LOVE those foil bunnies and chick. Now I have to check out the TJ Maxx near us to see if I can get hold of a chickie or two.

All of your Spring/Easter things are so sweet. I saw some standing foil bunnies at Home Goods, and thought they were really fun. Looks like you're ready for Spring...if it ever gets here.

I've enjoyed the sunshine this weekend too. Even though it's only 17 degrees, it's a lot easier to tolerate if the sun is shining, right?

Your buffet is looking lovely as always! Love your foil bunny! The nests you are making are amazing...I'm impressed.
