No fabric today...it's all about SPRING in my garden.  
 For those of you who like to play and create outside 
come on . . . let's get dirty!

My BFF's hubby made me this birdhouse with materials 
from an old Nun's house that was torn down.   
An early birthday gift!
 I found the perfect spot for it...
Flowers will fill in later and color will pop!

I've been collecting kitchen items to use for Faerie Gardens.  
Hens and chicks work so well in these small gardens. 

A faerie whispered to me as I was drinking
Elderberry wine that she wants to live in this flour sifter.
 I gotta keep it...or she'll play tricks on me!
Flour sifter

Gifts for friends and garden tour hostesses!
Loaf pan



Black and white tin pan

 Just added these blue glass insulators to the birdbath
Mr. Robin isn't sure WHY they are in his bathtub!

 The deer think I'm running a salad bar 
so I dug up their lunch (hosta and day lilies) and re-potted
for an upcoming plant swap.  
Hope to swap them for less appetizing plants!

I hope your day is filled with sunshine and good dirt 
and have enjoyed a little bit of my "Eden".

As for me...
my rib hurts and I have an urge to find an apple!

The winner of my 200th post giveaway 

by random generator
is #2

 Sheri Payne -Twiggs and said


Sheri is a no-reply blogger 
BUT because we became FaceBook friends 
through a swap some time ago...
I was able to reach her via FB.

I had almost 20 no-reply blogger comments
and that makes me sad because 
if you are leaving comments
 ...we who love to respond to you 
cannot reach you and worse than that...you cannot
win prizes, unless you leave us an email in your comment

Head over here to Sew At Home Mummy blog
and see Erin's great tutorial on how to fix the
no-reply blogger issue.

And if you have a blog you might want to follow Erin's
current series going on now to Beautifying your Blog

Thanks to all who left a comment.
Keep leaving them because
I get a gift each time I read one!
