What about us in the upper half of the US??
Instead of lounging by the tropical ocean we are mired in fresh fallen snow!! It dumped 4-5" in our yard last night!!! Who cares if it is now melting? It is insulting to say the least.
I want to go out and rake pine needles and leaves off my rose bushes and clean out my flower beds!! I want to take a walk in the sunshine instead of huddling inside watching the wind carry debris down the street and swirling snow over the tulip leaves!! My sweet little crocuses are now buried under the snow. IT is actually supposed to snow the next three days and warm up to 50 plus by mid week.
poor tulip leaves and where did the crocus go??
I have done some swaps in the last few months so thought I had better acknowledge my partners and show what I have been making as well.
Vivian of vivoutonawhim held a "Beat the Winter Blues" Doll swap.
I sent this little garden angel to my partner Melissa. She knew I loved hearts so sent me this 'heartfelt' sweetie.! Thank you Melissa.
I also got some very pretty buttons from Melissa. I can't wait to use them.
I made this doll for Courtney.... SOL SALLY. I had fun making her and her little sun faces!!
She has a clay face and cloth body with different adornments.
Then there was the Sweet Little Nest Swap by Heather from the speckled egg.
I painted a candle stand and glued the feather boa all around the base of the candle and the base of the bird cage. Then I attached the fairy and leaves and berries as well.
The blue and black and white bird turns as it sings. The fairy is offering him an extended hand holding a berry.
I can't even begin to list all the stuff Kai sent me. She sent me baskets inside more baskets. Each and every one so sweet!!!!
She sent me a big bright pink basket that held all the goodies. I got lots and lots of pink ribbons!!
a sweet lamb bowl--it is just so cute .
a small bird nest with a heart!! oh shucks!!
another small basket of goodies and nesting things. She also made me a beautiful book for journaling with a clay face on the front. I think I opned packages for a good half hour. THank you Kai!!! Your gifts were perfect and so generous!!!!
