I have a love/hate relationship with Spring; I find it the hardest season to get through due to the fickleness of the weather. Sure I LOVE the beautiful days and inhale the warm rays of the sun; but when the next day is grey and cold, I’m left feeling the same way. The weather was so wonderful and perfect last week, we just wanted to be outside with friends (and chatting in the kitchen over coffee and homemade goodies). Here’s a peek of what we have been up to-
We did some paper dyeing on Friday using coffee and tea. I love to dye paper. I’m planning to try with many different plants this Spring to acheive many different colors of paper- berries, dandelions, and cabbage are next on the list to try.
Araina brought me the first bouquet of the year.
Outdoor tea parties were a big thing over the weekend!
We’ve been trying to ID this black chrysalis Fauna found while climbing our Scarlet Maple. We think it’s some sort of moth pupa.
I finally got a little creative on Sunday after a week of not sewing. See the little tree house in the pic below? I’m going to make bigger ones using sweaters and felt for the Hootenannies to live in.
Here’s a winky-eyed bunny I’ve been working on for the past couple of days, she must have a little something in her eye! I still need to add her arms and a tail.
On a side note, with all the bickering and politics going on right now I have to leave with this message from Araina-
If only it were that simple!
