It's beginning to look a lot like Easter!

Well, even with the heavy snow that got dumped on us yesterday, I'm trying to think SPRING around here.  I used to decorate like crazy for Easter, but now I've edited my collection down & I'm selling the rest over in my Etsy Shop.  I've listed just a few things to get started.

This adorable little musical bunny is one I made back in 1983...when I did a lot of sewing of pretty little things.  My creative style has changed, but I have to admit, this bunny is still terribly cute.  She's all handcrafted & has a wind-up music box that plays a bit of "Easter Parade".  She's wearing her Easter bonnet in the spirit of the music & of her favorite springtime holiday.
Her little friend is in need of a new home, too.  Created around the same time in the early 1980s, he's good & plump & just too cute. 

Then over in my jewelry category, I recently created this bracelet full of hand painted floral eggs.  The eggs are wooden & make a delightful soft noise as you move your wrist. 

Then because it's just too early to start dyeing eggs, I've been busy dyeing ribbons.  And tags.  Oh my!  This is just one of a collection that's also available in my Etsy Shop, KittenCreates.  They're the same ribbons that I love to use to add a special touch to gifts, and people who have received some tell me it's great stuff.  I know I love the colors & crinkled texture of these ribbons & I hope you will, too.

Now all I have to do is wait for Spring to really arrive here in NE Ohio...this snow is starting to melt, but that doesn't mean it will be our last...after all, Clevetown is where your baseball home opener can be called on account of SNOW...in APRIL! 

I'm hoping for the snow to be over once this stuff melts...when it melted recently, I could see the crocus & narcissus starting to poke their little green shoots out of the ground.  Spring...I can't wait!

  3. Muchas gracias, Gabriela. And yeah...English is such a confusing language, with 2 or more spellings for the same word...and they mean 2 different things, too. OY VEY!
    I'm thrilled you like my stuff...I posted the first 4 ribbon sets the other night & by the next morning, all 4 had sold!!! I've now posted all I can until I order more of the white ribbon to dye.
