Sweet Spring.......

I love all the sweet things associated with spring....flowers, bunnies, chicks...pretty colors. I haven't shared any of my recent finds lately, these have been purchased over the last month or so and I love each and every one of them! Above is the carved bunny that still makes my heart flutter (TJ Maxx) a pretty little topiary and easter bottle (Micheal's) and some bowls big enough for cereal (my daughter's request) which I got yesterday (TJ Maxx again) and I love! Then there is the cute little pastel rooster I got at the flea this month. He was my only purchase!
Here is a close-up of the bunny, I added the ribbon and millinery flower:

Last month I got this Mary Engelbreit tea pot at the flea ($2) and this little birdie is also from Micheal's:

I am finally getting back to a little creating! I joined 3 swaps! The little folders below are for Melissa's ephemera swap....the last two on the right are for my etsy...they are filled with pretty ephemera and millinery and buttons.....

Now I have to get busy on Rhea''s Sweet and Shabby easter basket swap and Heather's Inspiration box swap....Whew!
I hope you are getting "springy" I know some of you are being buried in snow again, hopefully some pretty pictures will help inspire you! hugs! karen.....

I just love the combination of pink and that soft jade/mint green- and I agree with your daughter- a ceral bowl should be BIG.
