Spring has Sprung!

Ahhh, yes, that time of year that we have been waiting to see for months is finally here! Sunshine and color are returning to everyday life. Birds are chirping, life is sprouting from the ground and tips of trees limbs! Oh and more light, yes the sunlight for more hours of the day…ahhh it’s so good to have it back!

Spring has sprung in my shop also! I’ve been having so much fun playing with spring colors lately and all of a sudden there seem to be bunnies hopping about everywhere you look!

The bunnies are all around in every size and color! Yes, even a brand new feltidermy too!

In fact yesterday I had a little shop update and added three new feltidermy to the shop!

Lately when I am not stitching I’ve been cooking. Alright it’s not like that’s a new thing…but, I’ve been looking for new things to cook. I finally watched Julie & Julia the other day and Absolutely loved it! It was so sweet, fun and inspiring to watch! Well, it must have been inspiring because here I sit at my desk writing on my little blog to you…if your our there and actually reading this. I had made a resolution to get back to blogging this year, wrote a few posts and then nothing again. I kept trying to think of something to write about and then thinking “Gee, who wants to read that?” and “Is anyone out there really reading this?” and “Wow, why question? Just write!” So here I am writing whether someone is reading or not. So I’ll be back, with new creations to share with you from my studio and my kitchen!

It may seem strange that we have a dog named Julia Child and none of her cookbooks. When I thought this out loud the other night, my Mr reminded me “You don’t like French food.” Oh yeah! I did pull out my Emily Post cookbook from 1951! I think I’ll try to share some recipes from it with you from time to time. Some of recipes are quite good and basic things to cook. Just as enjoyable as the recipes are the tips for throwing  successful dinner parties and other such fun! I could do a whole post on just nuts and when to serve them!

Happy Spring and thanks for stopping by! Oh and if your looking for adorableness for an Easter basket, be sure to stop by my Etsy shop! Have a great day and I’ll see you soon!

    Those bunnies are sweet! I think that older cookbooks are so much better! For one thing they have about HALF as much sugar in the recipes than the new versions!! My, how our tastes have changed…

    I just saw your Alien Monster feltidermy and it rocks. I’m not usually a chick flick kinda girl, but I went to the movies one day by myself and saw Julie & Julia. It was such a sweet, inspiring movie and I left thinking about who’s my Julia. Have fun cooking!

    I would very much like to know if you could make me a squirrel if I tell you how I would like it. I have one in mind and it would be made with felt on the outside and stuffed with whatever firm stuffing you use for some of your other animals I saw. I’m trying to find someone who can make me this particular squirrel and he would be a Christmas squirrel tan or brown felt and he would be wearing a plaid vest with a Christmas hat and holding an acorn made from a brown felt and also stuffed. He would be about 12 inches high. A good size almost like a pillow and he would be in a sitting position like when they sit and eat. Just sitting up but not standing up. I don’t know if you would be willing to make it and then charge me what you want to but if you can do it we can go over the details and perhaps you can send me a sketch. I am on facebook and you can message me that way if you like.
    Thank you.
