Look What I got?

Well...the sweetest thing happened just the other day...Amy of BunnyRoseCottage sent me this sweet little sparkly ferry, isn't she just the cutest EVER!!!!! Be sure to check out Amys new line of boxes, are they ever adorable! It just made my day! THANK YOU AMY!
I now want to pass this on to Sharon of Sweet*Victorian*Rose!

My ETSY store..Come and take a peek!

Here's a peak at what is being offering in my ETSY store. I invite you to stop in and see what's new this year. Right now I have not added anything new since Valentines...but I can be assured of that. Don't forget to look at my earrings too. Many of these are swarovski crystals with silver plated hooks and wires. I have enjoyed making these and hope to add more plus some bracelets keep on checking back!

SPRING?...Come Inside and See bunnies are having a TEA Party...even if its snowy outside, its spring on the inside!

Alas...more snow this morning when I awoke....but there is a bit of spring in my home!

I am the type that when I clean, I rearrange and put out my seasonal decor. I just finished up my cleaning and putting Christmas stuff in my basement (but please don't go down there, it's a dissaster!) And...out came my spring I usually do snowmen after the Holidays, but this year...I needed my Springy goodies, due to the coldest winter ever..or so it seems to me!

So...grab your tea or coffee and just browse thru my lil vinettes of spring that I have put throughout my home. Enjoy and dream of spring...bunnies, easter egg hunts, green grass, tea parties and so much more!

Oh...I just love these sweety let me get some before Christmas and I used them with lovely vintage balls. Now I am decorating them for spring. I have put some wonderful birdnests in one of them...which they are actually from my Christmas see you can think OUTSIDE the BOX...

This is my dining room table. I usually do a large display of my collectible Easter/bunnies on it. Don't they just look sweet?

A view of my mantle...see my sweet collection of bunny tea pots and springy floral ones too....there's even a sweet bunny tucked in there...can you see it?

This little area is a pass thru or butlers pantry..and I always try and do something with my season here as well...

Last but not least...a simple display in my living room...just touches of soft springy colors and a precious pink lamb...that will apease me for now!

And here is my lastest SPRING painting...a sweet lil' bunny and his chickadee friend...along with my victorian roses!

I sure hope you enjoyed your Spring tour...come visit me again...and don't forget to leave me a message....I'd love to hear from you!
