Thinking about Spring

Thank you for the lovely comments about my long eared bunnies in my last post, I'm glad the inside out tutorial was useful.

It's wet and windy here today, so after catching up with the house jobs, I think it'll be time to settle down with my book. Imogen isn't due home until 7.30 this evening as she's gone on a school trip to see Blood Brothers in Sheffield. Just a couple of baked potatoes for me and Andy tonight, Imogen has a pack up with her, though I'm sure she'll fancy a nice hot chocolate with marshmallows and cream when she gets in and tells us all about her trip.

I missed a parcel delivery yesterday so Andy went to pick it up for me this afternoon.

As you can see, I opened it straight away! I'd ordered a few little bits and bobs from Hobbycraft, a bit early for Easter, but I'm so looking forward to Spring. I've already seen so many little green shoots from bulbs poking through and it almost feels as though the anticipation for Spring is in the air. It's been a very mild winter really, so I feel I shouldn't complain, but it will be nice to say goodbye to the grey days and welcome the sunshine back.

It's always exciting to open a parcel, even if you know what's going to be inside it already. Some little eggs, I really like the speckled ones.

I'm very excited about these paper mache eggs. I have a couple of different things I'm planning to use them for

So I thought it best to get 5...

Pretty little daisies, white ones and coloured ones.

I felt a bit naughty buying the grassy bunny, I thought I should just decoupage my own, but it's just so cute I couldn't resist it and I think it'll be a lovely addition to my Spring and Easter decorations.

Can you see why I couldn't resist him, so sweet!

Take care


  1. Oh you are so crafty! Have a good week!

  2. such lovely choices, the speckled eggs are my favourite, can wait to see what you do with them all

  3. Amazing what you buy! Guess you'll be doing some amazing crafting

  4. Crafty parcels are so exciting.
    Can't wait to see what you do with the mache eggs-x-

  5. What wonderful goodies, so nice to think ahead and have projects ready.

  6. You have got some lovely crafty bits. Can't wait to see what you do with tgem!

  7. What a cute little bunny. Look forward to seeing what you do with the eggs.
    As much as I like winter and the snow, I am ready for some warm pretty days that I can walk in regular walking shoes. : )

  8. I am catching up on your posts Cheryl - I adore the bunnies you made in your last post. Some lovely goodies arrived in your package - love that green bunny - I would've had to purchase him too I think :-)

  9. That bunny is definitely irresistible a good buy, as are your other items.

    Not good weather in my part of the UK, I think Storm Doris is on the way ...

    Have a lovely Friday and a good weekend

    All the best Jan

  10. Crafty parcels are the most exciting to me! You have chosen some lovely things...and how nice to be planning spring and Easter decorating!
    Happy weekend.

  11. Parcels of crafty stuff are the best and always exciting. I'm looking forward to seeing what you planned for the goodies.
    Best wishes

  12. I wouldn't have been able to resist him either, he's so cute. Spring can't come fast enough for me, I've so had enough of winter already, I'm ready for the sunshine. Hope Imogen enjoyed her trip, I've seen Blood Brothers a few times, a wonderful musical.

  13. I love receiving parcels too. I try to avoid Hobbycraft because it's far too tempting. I bought a twig wreath and some flowers like yours to make a spring wreath last year and still haven't done anything with them! I seem to do that a lot....x

  14. We have a Hobby Lobby store in our town. It's huge and has every craft item you can imagine! I try to stay out of it as I also have every craft item I need in my basement! Bunnies are adorable and I'm ready for spring too. I have never seen that simple way to turn small arms and legs and such inside out! I wish I knew it about 30 years ago. I had a little craft business called Bunny & Co. (with a friend) and we probably made and sold 1000 bunnies a summer doing craft shows! Oh my goodness. So simple. Thank you. I plan on making some bunnies this year out of that same old pattern!


  15. I have some of those things too! They are cute aren't they, missed the bunny though, might have to go and get one of those....

  16. It's always fun to receive packages in the mail! I'm curious to see what you'll do with the paper mache eggs. I'm also looking forward to the arrival of spring.

  17. What a fun box to open up when it's still wintry outside. Oh, that grassy green bunny is adorable! I'll have to keep an eye out for one here ;)

  18. That was a fun parcel to open. I think many of us are dreaming about spring. I certainly am even as I scoop the driveway yet again.

  19. Cute little bunny, such a box of delights to keep you busy.

  20. I think the bunny is very cute.
    Are those eggs going to contain a little felted scene inside them?
    Looking forward to seeing what you create.
