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!

Spring is Coming!

I know this because our ducks are back. We have three mallard ducks that live in a pond behind our place from early spring until fall. They came back, quacking loudly to announce their homecoming, this past weekend.

We made Roasted Vegetable Stacks for Sunday dinner.

They were delicious!

I’m still working on many custom orders for the shop. This is one of the latest… Etsy Labs Blind Mice!

Yes, those are the Blind Mice Likenesses of the girls of Etsy Labs : Danielle, Julie, Christine, and Mary. I wasn’t sure at first how it was going to work to take photos of humans and make mouse feltidermy versions of them. I ended up being white happy with the results.

Oh, don’t forget to tune in today to see Emily Martin of The Black Apple on the Martha Stewart Show today!

Have a great day!
