Yesterday I saw some narcissus blooms in a nearby yard. Finally! A touch of springtime! The sunshine has caused the last of the snow to melt and the grass has a tinge of green in in it today. Snow can be a very good fertilizer so my expectations is to see the most vibrant shades of green ever very soon.
Here's a little something spring-like I made for a swap. Because there was not a box to found here, I ended up making one out of chipboard. It is covered with paper and wallpaper samples. The little chick is a cut-out of one my illustrations. I really hated to part with it!
There are all sorts of things to be found in craft stores right now. The fairy garden fad has increased the types of dried materials that can be used for scenes like this. I made the pussy-willow with sticks and cotton I took off a cotton swab. The tiny daffodil was found about 15 years ago. There was only one when I bought it hoping to find others. Now it has a home!
There is a chance of more winter weather for tomorrow but maybe it will not happen...finger crossed! How is the weather where you are? Flowers blooming? Leaves on trees yet? Is the Easter Bunny hiding in your garden?
Still wearing my safety pin. My guess is that everyone has forgotten that symbolism by now. Every new day brings more surprises... and sorrows, too. Until next time,
wherever you are,
enjoy the day!
