Despite the erratic weather (the sunny days seem like such a gift and Easter rocked them all!), we are technically into spring. It's time to spring up the house! Some of these critters are Easter-related, of course, but I suspect most will stay in place a bit!
My spring thing tends to go in a couple of directions.
There are the birdhouses, birds and nests and bunnies.
Most of the birdhouses I've made. Most of the nests here I've picked up along the way --
although I do love making these sweet little things, too.
Bunnies are mandatory guests. The one above I've had since I was a kid.
It was my mom's favorite, and mine, too, with its sunny yellow color and plump cheeks!
I found these two bunnies a few years ago. They look so nice with silvery things.
Silver seems to be my Easter tone this year.
Bunny Tutu was a gift from a good friend a few years ago when I had my shoulder surgery.
The nest she sits in is a gift from another friend and one of my favorite baskets
(because, really, it's more of a basket than a nest!)
The few pieces of chintzware my mom had fit the season!
I like it so much, I'm pondering starting another collection.
(I can just hear the panic in Rick's voice now!)
The nest here in the center is one I did from a Claudine Hellmuth tutorial, which I posted about earlier here.
For whatever reason, I seem to be caging things lately, like this bunny.
...and my Hummel madonna. Seems a little odd to put her in a cage, but she fits perfectly!
This is the little Easter Egg tree...
...along with another birdhouse and sweet ladybug figure that was a gift.
The bathroom tree is back -- this time with eggs!
Along with the eggs, there are my favorite butterflies and the obligatory bunny.
And this is my newest and favorite spring thing -- bird in a basket! What a prolific layer she is!
So don't be too shocked!
It's time for a little spring -- at long last! Bring out your happy!
