Happy Easter!

Eggs in Nest
Eggs in Bowl
Eggs in Carton
Our move to the new place got pushed over a week so I thought I'd squeeze in a post for Easter :) I love making these marbleized eggs from Martha Stewart Living each year. This time I went with all blue. You can find the instructions on how to make them right here.
Hope you all have a peaceful Easter.

Happy Spring!

To celebrate the arrival of Spring I made these tiny watercolor paintings on beautiful egg shaped washi paper cards I brought back from Canada last year.
They're 3.5" x 2.5" (not for sale)
I'm signing off from my blog for a few weeks while I get ready for our impending move.
I will continue to post photos at Instagram, you are welcome to follow me there. 
***I'm programming an automatic post with April's desktop calendar,

Little Birdy in da House!

Bird House
Cardboard Bird House
Home Sweet Home
On my bedroom wall
My sweet friend Diana recently sent me a lovely parcel filled with goodies. 
This cardboard bird house was included with all the birdie related treasures. 
It came flat in the mail, all I had to do was fold to assemble it. One of my watercolor birdies asked me if he could make it his home, of course I had to say yes & even decorated it with a Sharpie :-)
Dear Diana, thank you so much for all the wonderful, thoughtful gifts!
