March !

February is going but it's going with a shower. At least it's leaving clean. Let's hope March is warmer and a little less wet.
Received from my swap partner Joyce, this absolutely delightful packet of happiness!

Look at all the sweet goodies she sent ... a precious little chick, cute little chick cut outs with bunny ears to attach !  and along with a spring card a fabulous St. Paddy's day tag.
Love the yellow paper roses, the buttons, the stickers ... Joyce you made my week !

This is my March swap card, tag and de-stash for Linda's A Swap for all Seasons. Beeing the color yellow  it was perfect for a bee theme.   My swapee Pam,  is a sewer, quilter, crafter so I sent vintage zippers, thread and trim.  Some vintage glass buttons and a pin...always have to have a little bling !

 ...Adding a photo of my favorite honey pot and vintage honey jars.
The honey pot was hand thrown by Giana Eden a potter who lives not too far from here ... I have a couple of her pieces.
Love to buy local when possible.
  Connecting with Beverly's Pink Saturday.  Did you spot my spot of pink?   
   Am off and running today, heading out to the big city ... will try and catch up with you when I get back.   Until then, thank you for your sweet comments and ya'll beee sweet.

I have noticed so many bloggers are involved in tags or card swaps. I would not want to use them as they lovely.


Very sweet card and tag for the swap! Love the new color on the back of your bookcases at your booth. Makes a huge difference.
Happy weekend.

I am sooooo behind in Blogland! Do you know that I never even thought of the bunny ears for the chicks, that's so funny! I'm so glad that you liked everything. Your bee hive card is very clever and your tag is springy! I just love this swap group!
