Sugar High

I have fond memories of making special treats for our neighbors when I was growing up.
We did May baskets, bread at Christmas, and eggs at Easter. 
 With the help of our grandmother, my sister and I packaged dyed eggs and candies in little grass-filled boxes.
We loaded up our red wagon and delivered them to the neighbors.

I love those holiday traditions, and try to continue them with my own girls.
So, we whipped up a few fun and easy-peasy goodies for some friends and neighbors.

We made Jelly Bean Bark by melting white chocolate and spreading it on waxed paper.  Then we simply dropped jelly beans onto it.  We let it set and broke it into chunks.  (Next time we'll use more jelly beans!)

Some mints...

And of course, the traditional bunny cake!

I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday weekend!

Spring Crafting

Some little baskets that I recently made for a few friends...
I love how they turned out.
So sweet.
So simple.
So Spring-y.

Vintage Easter Flea Market

Last week I found an entire box of vintage Easter and Spring goodies that I completely forgot about!
I've just added them to the website, in the Flea Market Finds section.
They are available in larger lots, so you can scoop up some real cuties at great prices.
 I've been thinking about doing more of these types of sales.
More kits and one-of-a-kind vintage finds.

Maybe a monthly "virtual flea market" on my website?
Think that would be fun?
