A Little Bird told me that it's almost spring. There are, of course, a number of signs. Snow that doesn't stick for long, brighter and longer days, displays of Easter candy and decorations in every store.
Time to get busy!
I brought up the first batch of Easter from the basement. As I go along, I'm trying to cull through what I'll never use again to donate or share. These have all made the "keeper" pile!
The smiling bunny is one of my favorites. My mom bought him long ago and he's always the first thing I bring out each year! He just makes me smile!
I'm fond of my girlie bunny and bird in its nest, too. The bird often finds its way into a centerpiece -- it's low and we can see each other over it!
This bunny and birdhouse are also favorites. The bunny -- I don't remember where he came from; he's been around a long while. The birdhouse was from my birdhouse-building spree a few years ago. Maybe it's time to do some more!
Not much is in place but here are a few sneak peeks. This is the top of the china cabinet...

My favorite spring swag is on top of a different cabinet.
And last year's forsythia wreath from Southern Exposure is back! My next workshop there is at the end of the month and I can't wait!
Oh, I'm not done yet!
Come back later for more!
