According to the calendar, Spring officially arrives on Wednesday and in keeping with that, I am having a special Giveaway to celebrate this favorite season!!  What do I think of when I think of Spring?  Bunnies and eggs of course!!!  So those will be what I am offering to you, and because I just reached 300 followers, I will have 3 different prizes!!  The first three names drawn will receive the prizes in this order:

Two sweet bunnies from a Pineberry Lane pattern, handmade by me, nestled in a prim twig basket filled with tan paper grass!!

Primitive twig half basket (flat on the back) filled with brown excelsior and 4 primitive eggs, with tiny patches on each, handmade by me!  One of a kind!

Sweet Baby Hare from a Pineberry Lane pattern, handmade by me, tucked in a fabric basket  from a pattern by Netty Lacroix, and a small prim egg, both handmade by me!  The basket has a wire handle, but will also stand and you can switch out the Hare and Egg as well!!

If you would like to participate, please make sure you are a follower and leave a comment about what you think of when you think of Spring!  Open to the USA and Canada only.  The Giveaway will close at 10 pm PST. on March 25th and I will draw
the winners on the 26th and post them by 8 am PST!  Good luck to all of you who enter!!

Thank you so very much for hanging in there with me!!  I can't believe I have only done ONE POST this year, but hope to change that!!  I have S L O W L Y been creating some things too and hope to show what I have been working on in the not too distant future!!  Stay tuned!!

Take care dear friends!!

Wishing you a Wonderful Spring~~

I would love to be entered in your wonderful giveaway! Such cute things that you have made. When I think of spring, I think of the trees and bushes budding and flowering. I used to love to see the forsythia, that sure says spring. Also as soon as you see the crocus' sprout, you know that spring is just around the corner.

Dearest Julie, It is a delight to see that you are back to blogging...and with such a lovely and generous Springtime Giveaway!
Springtime to me...warm sunbeams, birdsong, damp earth, and wee knobs of pale green sprouts...but alas, all hidden beneath a fresh coating of snowflakes this day.
Wishing you a splendid day my friend!
Sending hugs your way...

Hi Julie, I would love to be entered into your giveaway!
Spring reminds me of my grandmother, it was her favorite time of the year. I also think of Easter, crocus, new green grass, fresh air blowing through the house and colors coming alive:)

Oh, my! You are too sweet! I would love to be entered in your giveaway!

Hmmm, Spring. I think definitely the smell. That certain smell of greenness and warm earth. I feel like Mary does up above. She describes it wonderfully! Also, I love when it is warm enough, that I can open my sunroof and listen to birds and smell the air as I drive home WITHOUT the heater and 4-wheel drive on!

Happy Spring Julie! I am new to your site and enjoy checking out all of your goodies! Spring makes me think of bulbs starting to bloom and the Cherry Blossoms on the Potomac and of course Easter and all the chicks and bunnies. Marnie

Congratulations on 300+ and growing strong Julie!! And what a generous and wonderful way to celebrate. I would be honored to have my name entered for any one of these adorable creations!! As for what I think of when I think of Spring - hmmm...I'd have to say renewal and rebirth. My birthday is the first (full) day of spring (which is why my father insisted I be named Robin), so it always brings a sense of hope and new beginnings.... Thank you so much for this wonderful opportunity! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin
