Sweet Sweet Spring

Sweet, Sweet Spring!  We are waiting for you!  This past weekend brought us a quick peek at what we have to look forward to.  I’m looking past the fact that it’s in the 30’s with snow flurries today.  I’m staying focused on the days when the weather will be warmer, and what better way than to fill your home with touches of the things to come.  After all, if mother nature’s not willing to send them to us yet, we will just have to create our own.

Here are a few things I’ve been working on this week.  The first is a burlap bunny silhouette.  Lately I’ve had the butter fingers, and have broke several pieces of glass.  I bought this frame, and before I even decided what to do with it, the glass broke.  I piled up the pieces and meant to take it downstairs to throw it away, but forgot.  Good thing!!  because it then occurred to me that I could still use the frame without the glass.  I glued a piece of burlap to the backing, printed out a bunny silhouette on some toile paper and then boarded it with some accent burlap ribbon with a cute green edge.

My next project was made from an empty salad dressing bottle.  I glued some moss to the front of the bottle, wrapped the neck in twine and added some accents.  I topped it off with a stamped tag.  I think it’s pretty cute.  My husband said it looks like something that went so bad the mold grew on the outside.  Ha ha!!  Sorry honey, but I’m right. Winking smile


My last project involved wrapping some ribbon around a glass vase, topping it with some faux lilacs and wrapped a bloom tag around it.  Quite simple, yet really perks up a plain glass vase.

So this is what’s perking up my kitchen counter right now!
