Easter Swap Goodies From Robin

Yes this looks like a darling Easter decoration,  but.... that's just the wrapping.  So adorable.  An envelope made out of a road map. 

 Here's what was in the envelope, a pretty posy wall hanging with a vintage Easter image.
 This next ornament shows a sweet nest basket.  Inside is a bird made from calico fabric.  Such a good idea, and so different.
 And here we have a cute as can be bunny sitting on nest adhered to a pepper shaker full of grass and eggs.
Once again I will have the cutest tree on the block.  Thank you Robin, I love everything!

Chocolate Bird Nests On Spoons

I came across this cute treat on Pinterest.  I knew we had to try it, all that chocolate plus mini eggs.  PLUS MINI EGGS!  You need just a few items and MINI EGGS.  We followed the recipe but I wanted a fuller nest.  I decided to use vanilla wafers to fill the nest out.  I just put a dab of melted chocolate on the spoon, added the vanilla wafer and followed the directions.  They turned out great and pretty tasty too.  I think the vanilla wafer added a certain little oomph.  Beware, the brown sprinkles end up everywhere.

Below is a  shot of ours nests packaged and ready for giving..  be sure to check out the original post

Something Special For a Swap

City Wide Garage Sale

This weekend we went to a city wide garage sale.  We have absolutely nothing vintage in my town so we went to a town an hour away.  It was a fun way to spend a Saturday and it ended up costing around the same as seeing a movie.
 These are all vintage jewelry I picked up.  None of them were a real bargain but none were a rip off either.  So it's all good.
 The next group consists of little doodads,  And the last photo shows a pretty vintage Bride doll- it was a good price.

Spring Tinsel the Cheap Way

I picked up some decorations at the dollar store the other day.  Even though they are kind of cute, I wanted them for their tinsel.  I just unwrapped the tinsel from the plastic frame and then rolled it into a ball.  It yielded about three yards.  Can be used on banners, trim for Easter projects or to tie Easter treat bags closed.  You get a lot for just a buck.  Did you just call me cheap? ;)
