Are these not the cutest Bread Rolls you have ever seen?   I found them on  Life As a Schoolhouse.  A home schooling blog.   Cute rolls. On my list of To Bakes!  We had a hedgehog in our garden once.  Do you remember?

I don't know who was more afraid . . .  Mitzie or the hedgehog!!   That is the closest she got to it and she kept jumping back.   She came and got us to tell us it was there and then Todd took the wee creature and put it into a safe place.

A Portable Craft Station in a suitcase.  The Source for this great idea is here.   This one is obviously set up for quilting, but you could set up any kind you wanted.   A stamping one.   Card making one.   Scrap Booking one.  This would be perfect to take along on Cropping Sessions!  Just pick up and go!

A Paper Doily wreath complete with fairy lights from Martha Stewart.   I just adore this. It's so pretty!   This would be great for anyone who is doing a wedding or shower.  Or just in a frilly bedroom.   I love it!

A Pom Pom Apple.  This would be a great gift for a teacher for the end of the year.  I think it's just brilliant.  It comes from a book, which you can find here.   It's in a foreign language, (I think its Danish) but I am sure it wouldn't be too difficult to figure it out, even without the book.

Fabric Boxes from Seaside Stitches.   These are fabulous!  I can see lots of uses for them!   She has a complete tutorial.  These would make great Easter Baskets for the kiddos I am thinking!

Egg Carton Roses!  Aren't they wonderful!  You could paint them whatever colour you wanted to.  They would make great table decorations for tea parties, showers, etc.    From Bliss Bloom Blog.
People are just so crazy inventive, don't you think?

I know it's more paper flowers, but it was just so dang pretty I just had to share.  From Pretty DIY, a breathtakingly beautiful Paper Rose Garland.    I thought you might like this!

Well, this was a really "Spring-like" post today with some fresh crafts to breathe some fresh Spring air into your creative lives!   The sun is shining here today to beat the band!  It's just gorgeous out, a bit chilly, but then it is still March!

A thought to carry with you through today . . .

"Buttercups and daisies,
Oh, the pretty flowers;
Coming ere the spring time,
To tell of sunny hours.
When the trees are leafless;
When the fields are bare;
Buttercups and daisies
Spring up here and there."
- Mary Howitt

  1. You too Suzan. Has it started to cool off there yet? I think you must be in your Autumn now!

  2. LOVE the hedgehog bread rolls! Ooo... me LOVES the doily wreath with lights...*BIG SWOON*...LOL! Cute egg carton flowers. I have a pink egg carton in the fridge now--keeping that one! ;o) So many great finds again this week, Marie... I don't know how you do it all! Happy Weekend to all of you there ((LOVE & BIG HUGS))

  3. I really like doing these Friday posts Tracy! It's fun looking for interesting things to share! I hope you have a lovely weekend too!

  4. You are a true finder of cute things!!

  5. Those pom-pom bunnies are just SO cute! My heart melted when I saw them.

    I laughed at Mitzie and the hedgehog. Miss Sophie is also a little wary of hedgehogs, not quite knowing what she should do because they don't run away from her like the squirrels and wild hares do. We get them in the garden in the summer as well and I love to see them.

  6. Thanks Monique!

    Marie, Mitzie didn't quite know what to do either. In all truth she was afraid of it!


Your comments mean the world to me, and while I may not be able to address each one individually, each one is important to me and each one counts. Thanks so much!
