Peeps update! 🙂

Oh my goodness! I forgot to report on how things went with the peeps. (original post here) My daughter said that everything arrived in fine shape. She said the candy peeps were in perfect condition, even though the little cellophane package they come in had a slight bend in it. And the plush “toy” peep only needed a few pats to make his “fur” look good as new. 🙂 Yay!!!


We were so relieved to hear it. In the future though, we’ll probably make sure we have the right shipping box at home – ahead of time! No more assuming we can find an appropriate size, last minute, at the post office.

Spring girlsTo those who celebrate Easter, I wish you a very lovely day!

And may every one of us have a relaxing and refreshing Spring weekend!

Thanks a million for your sweet and thoughtful comments! Meet ya back here on Monday for another fun week! 😀



Giveaway- Signs of Spring Earrings

snowflakeperiwinkleOh, hi there. 🙂

Welcome to my weekly giveaway!

You know, winter can be so beautiful when everything is covered in a fresh blanket of snow . . . but once that snow melts – the bare brown landscape looks awfully bleak. It’s then that I begin to look for signs of Spring.

Now, when I think “Spring”, the color green, um, “springs” to mind. (Sorry for the pun; I couldn’t resist.) 😉

I designed these earrings as a reminder that the trees will soon be in bud again!

“Signs of Spring”

I chose shades of peridot and olivine green. You’ll notice both artisan-crafted lampwork glass beads and Swarovski crystals, which are embellished with lacey bead caps. All of the metal components are sterling silver – including the artisan-crafted sterling silver earwires. Total length: 1-5/8” inches.
