Springtime Show & Tell


I am joining Kelli today for Show and Tell. Head on over there to see what others have to show!

~

Here is a little 'springtime' decorating I have done. Nothing fancy, just things I have.

Daffy-Down-Dillies from the nearby woods.

~

Sweet little chicks...

~


~

greet you in the entryway.

A little metal Bunny egg holder on Grandma's embroidered tablecloth.

(Oh! I see another bunny in the background sneaking into the picture!)

~



~

A handmade basket ( my first and last attempt!), a Pysanky egg, Avon Bunny, and a couple of Beatrix Potter books.

~

~

Here is a close up of the goose eggs I did a couple of years ago.

(Dremel Drill!)

~


~

More Pasanky eggs.

~

~

Bunnies having carrots.

(Sweet Paula gives directions how to make the carrots.)

Bunnies say "Thank you!"

~

~

And as you leave, outside the door is a little vignette inspired by this

part of Beatrix Potter's Peter Rabbit.

~




~

Goodbye! Thanks for looking at my Show & Tell!

Wow! Incredible. Dick really puts me to shame. I can't believe he has time to decorate the house for spring and still get his hunting gear in order.

Everything is beautiful! I especially love the goose eggs. I know you used a Dremel drill, care to share any more about the process?

Lauren said...

I'm so impressed by those goose eggs! And I love that tablecloth. I'm wondering if I could be patient enough to finish one.

Susie Homemaker said...

A Dremel? Really? I would have crushed egg shells!!!!
Your things are so lovely!
