Happy Easter ....

Mother Nature has been cleaning house lately .... sending in high winds to clear debris and shut down power ... and it has been wonderful ... a little scary watching the trees that are so close to us, swaying and some snapping, sailing branches through the parking lot and the street ... pelting my patio with debris ... shedding herself of weak branches ... Nothing like a windstorm in the forest ... and then Easter Sunday ... all is calm, and beautiful and in great need of sweeping!

A little white & pink basket for my mom!

I hope you all had a chance to celebrate Easter in your own way ... this was the first year that Hayley and I didn't dye eggs ... kind of depressing not to do it and I think we will pick it up again next year, we both love fun and dyeing Easter eggs is total fun! You are never to old to stop dyeing eggs.

A little blue basket for my Dad!

I did manage to get two more little vintage inspired baskets made ... these are tiny, the crepe paper covers an aluminum foil tart cup ... the handle is a pipe cleaner covered with ribbon and bakers twine ... I loved making the rolled roses out of felt ... tres easy and totally inexpensive ... i had so much fun making them that i might just make everyone a basket next year ... or make them for Halloween or Christmas or ...

All three of the little baskets, waiting to be given out!

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and thanks for stopping by!

As always, Honey is trying to get in the shot ... with those giant ears she could almost pass for the Easter Bunny!
