Seems as if I have been neglecting my blog lately, but I have been busy crafting and cooking, and cleaning out flower beds, getting ready for SPRING!
The ladies in my family are big coffee drinkers. The minute one us walk into each others house, we will put the coffee pot on. So, this year I made cup and saucer Easter "baskets"
I found the cups and saucers at the thrift store for 50 cent. I filled them with Easter grass, then added some silk flowers, and egg pick, and a votive candle. Then I filled the saucer with jelly beans and wrapped them up! They look so cheery sitting in ymy craft room. I will get to enjoy them until Easter day.Then I got busy on the "baskets" for the girls at work. Again, the thrift store had just what I wanted. I bought the stuffed bunnies for .50 each. The I found the flower pots at the dollar store. Walmart already has tons of Easter candy out and I found these Russell Stover Chocolate bunnies in beautiful pastel colors. I added some pencils, some bunny purse size tissues, and an Easter egg with some jelly jeans in them. I haven't wrapped them yet because I want to get a little more candy to fill in the empty spaces.
The front flower beds and the flower beds around the pond are now leaf free and are ready to greet the warmer days of Spring. I cleaned a little around the pool garden, but there is so much left to do. I haven't even begun to clean out the vegetable garden. They are the main order of business this week if the weather cooperates. I am also going to turn my herb garden into a Peter Rabbit garden this year. Be on the look-out for further posts about that garden. My head is spinning with all the ideas I have for this garden. Hurry Spring!
