Spring Fluffing Party

Today I am joining in on the Spring Fluffing Party and showing off a few of my spring favorites. This kids and I got out the Easter decorations and set to work.

I thought this little guy was so cute, he looks just like real chocolate. It is fun to tuck unusual little things in flowers. It is like a little bonus.

These three little gals, with their their leg warmers, keep my front door cheery through Easter. I found them at JoAnn's when all the Easter decorations were on clearance. I love getting great deal. The wreath behind is one that the birds love to come and peck at. They think they look like a yummy little snack. I hear birds in the spring scratching around on my door trying to get a yummy berry.

I love these crochet eggs. I have a set of three of them and they are fun to do many things with. This one is filled with pink Easter grass, but I have also filled them with candy too, the kiddo's love that.

This is my sofa table with my Easter Blocks that I made at my Mom's earlier this week. They were so much fun to make. They are sitting on a table runner that my Mom helped me make. It was fun project.
This is a bench in my entry way that I used to display some of my favorite things. The pillow was a gift from my husbands aunt for our wedding 15 years ago, and the lamb is one that my mother-in-law gave to me many years ago. I love this little "Honey Lamb" (name that movie?) because she has so many cute details, like the cow bell around her neck.

This is my favorite Easter decoration of all. It is a little purse that I made for my daughter when she was two. It is from a Martha Stewart pattern. I was so proud of my self for making this because I am so not a sewer, and it actually turned out and Addison loved it. Yes, the chick only has one eye, because the other one fell off and I have never replaced it. One of these days I need to get to that.

Hope you enjoyed some of my favorite things. I love spring, with its warm breezes and new birth. I love to hear the return of all the birds chattering away going about their business, and the fresh clean feeling the earth seems to have this time of year. Happy Spring to you!
