A Little Birdie Told Me...No. 64
Spotlight on Springtime Crafts & Treats

Welcome to 
"A Little Birdie Told Me..." Tuesday No. 64!
If you're here to share a craft, recipe or project post,
you'll find the linky and the specifics on how to 
join the party after the features below.


When I was a child, this was the time of year that I was positively consumed with anticipation for the day when the postman would arrive with a box from our grandmother; packed with vintage German Easter keepsakes from her childhood -- chenille chicks, papier-mâché egg boxes, pastel millinery flowers and cotton batting lambs. Springtime makes me sentimental for such nostalgic treasures.

In the spirit of all that is soft, sparkling and speckled in spring, I give you this week's features...


Wooden Country Bunny DIY
from The Cottage Market

from Homework

Peep House DIY & Printables
From Sweet Anne
