This week we've been spending as much time outside as possible. There's been a lot of trips to the garden store, our first picnic, and visits to the park. Carrots, lettuce, radishes, snow peas, onions, and spinach have been planted in our garden. Oh, and herbs. We're off to a pretty good start. Now we are working on our landscaping and lawn. So much to do, May is going to be a very busy month!

Last week was a tough week. Both with things at home and events happening in our country. A new week with a fresh start is what I need. We're finally going to have warmer weather later this week. A big hooray! There will be a lot of time spent at the park and in our garden. This year we are far behind in our planting. It will feel great to at last get it started.
I have finished two macrame plant hangers that I will be listing in my shop this week. I created a new design, a medium length hanger. I think it's just the right size. I hope to make several more in that size soon, and in some new colors.

We had perfect spring weather on Sunday, it was wonderful! I did some yard work and cleaned the garage. I put a large empty box in the yard for my little one and she had fun pretending it was her boat. Boxes can be so entertaining!
It's going to rain the entire week and I have a little one with spring fever who's stuck inside. I'm trying my best to find fun things for us to do.
I hope you are having a great day!

Even though there is still snow on the ground, it really feels like spring. We spent part of our morning in our backyard. Sara had a blast digging in the dirt in our garden. We all can't wait for it to get warm enough to plant our garden.
She's napping right now, thank goodness. There were three days this week she did not nap. Boy, I really rely on her nap time to get things done. Tomorrow we're dying eggs (using the Kool-Aid way again) and maybe going to an Easter egg hunt. Fun times!
I hope you have a nice Easter!

I added a new macrame plant hanger to my handmade shop. I love this pattern, it's a little more delicate than my other ones. I also have a turquoise one for sale as well.
I currently have a spring sale going on in my vintage shop. I hope to add some new items late this week. Happy Monday!

Yes, another doll for Thrift Thursday. Before we went into the thrift store, I told my daughter "no toys today." Then I end up finding one of the dolls on my vintage doll wishlist. Of course I had to buy it. This is Fisher Price's "My Friend Jenny", from the late 70's to early 80's. I still have my childhood "My Friend Mandy" doll, which I gave to my daughter. She loves having a friend for her. I'm still on the hunt for a "My Friend Becky" doll.

Top photo is from today, the first day of spring. The bottom is from March 21, of last year. Blah! The weather has been awful for both February and March. I'm SO ready for spring, but Mother Nature has other plans I guess. I think we may actually have to hunt for Easter eggs in the snow!
