Beverly at How Sweet The Sound has asked us to share something today to celebrate the arrival of spring. Two weeks ago we woke to this in our yards! A sea of purple rippling through the whole neighborhood. It was so beautiful and I’m glad I took a picture then and there as it was not only beautiful but also fleeting. By afternoon when we returned home from our early morning baseball game it was gone.
This week I should be getting ready for Antique Week at Round Top but instead made prizes for my bunco group. These tussies are really large – about 14 inches with the handle. Making those little lollies was a lot easier with my new scoreboard.
Isn’t the little birdie on this one sooo cute!?
I used some vintage garland for trim along with some cotton crochet. This one has a bunny
and I used either buttons or little painted wooden eggs for centers of the lollies.
I think I’ll make some of these to sell at our booth at La Bahia during Antique Week.
I hope spring has arrived wherever you may be and that you’re having a springy Pink Saturday.
