Get out!

I got rid of the last of my snowmen that were still in my entry and brought in a little spring. I decided to use my pomanders since I found the bird shaped one. They are all flowers and butterflies and very springy. A vase of pussy willows and forsythia (my spring standby) and some cute birdies.
Jerzie and I made this tree with some things Aunt Laurie gave us for crafts. I had the small pail so just added some weight in the bottom and some floral foam. I spray painted the branches.
We actually hung these cuties with some earring wires I had in my stash. Don't you love the kitty hanging on the branch?
Except for my yard still being about 2/3rds covered with snow, I made winter get out!

The tree turned out really cute. I knew you would find something to do with all of those Easter items.

Adorable, Jean. I bet those girls love coming to your house--you always have something fun planned for them to do!

Love your new background, too.

Hi Jean, I think when you put out spring decorations, it helps you not think there is still so much snow on your grass! We don't get snow here, but I could just image! It is suppose to get in the 80s this coming week here. Hurry up with your Bloomin' Tuesday girl! Let me know when you start again.
Hugs, Ann
