Spring has sprung

Three days of sunshine has obviously had an effect on me, lol, it seems that I have surrounded myself with Spring colours, tender greens and sweet pinks. Of course today we are back to grey skies again, but Spring is still firmly on my mind. I love this silly little Spring poem -

Spring has sprung, the grass has riz
I wonder where them birdies is.
The little bird is on the wing.
But that's absurd!
Because the wing
is on the bird!

I had already sprung into Spring action with the pink little bonbon box, which I showed you here and yesterday I fancied altering a little bottle. I had this little thing on my shelf for quite a while now, and yesterday it finally got a long overdue makeover -

I had some of the sweet little pink French trim left over, so I wound it onto an old wooden cotton reel. Looks so cute!

And while I was still in pink mode, I made a Spring tag as well -

I love sprinkling German glass glitter, especially the PINK one!

And because there is such an abundance of pink in this post, I am linking, for the very first time, to PINK SATURDAY over at How Sweet the Sound. Hundreds of beautiful pink posts to look at, you can't help but drool, lol.

Now I am wondering what else I can Springify.......

Yes'm, the dreaded "S" word is upon us once again! Definitely staying tucked up inside! It is "wine o' clock" here in the States at the moment! lol...keeping warm!

Always love to see you visiting, Liz!

Hi Liz,
No, I actually wasn't quick about the tag...I had made it this weekend and went "yay!" I can use it for Tag Tuesday! lol

stampdiva said...

Liz I love each and every little creation here. What a beautiful vignette they make.
Spring - tell me, what is that? We had snow falling during the night and some more as I type, although lucky for us, it is not lying on the ground for very long.

Ach da sind die schönen Sachen ja :)
Ich liebe sie alle. Die Flasche, die Schachtel, das Tag ....... So wunderschön meine Liebe!
