Spring Has Sprung

At the request of my dear friend Becky, I bring you Spring...
This seems like a quote I would be famous for saying, too bad E.B. White thought of it first. I am always waiting for something to happen.

Grandma made these blown-out real eggs and sprinkled clear glitter all over them. She cut out little windows and filled them with Spring scenes of miniature chicks and bunnies. I still remember her panoramic sugar eggs too. Green colored coconut as the grass with plastic figurines inside. She made me one with a green lattice frosting design on top.

The jars in all their spring glory. The nests were left in my Spring cones on the front door a couple years ago. Another not-so-good-ending in the circle of life storybook. But I have these bird gathered nests now.

Remember the toys you never knew what to do with after Easter had come and gone?


  1. Aimee - I love your blog. Anytime I need a pick me up or inspiration I just glance through your photos and notes. You haven't posted for a while and I hope it is because you are working on items for the Art Market??!!! I am your biggest fan and that is the main reason I drive clear from Ogden.

    I am curious about your dinner group . . . Do you all get together often and have these kind of events (Lantern Festival) or was this a single inspired event? You make everythings so complete and fun and fabulous.

    I hope to see you at the Art Market.

  2. Where did you get those cute apocathary jars? They are fantastic!
