Thinking of Spring - Beaded Flowers

I am stuck on --- When will winter go away and spring come???? Please bear with me.

These tiny beaded flower I found this weekend while digging in my attic. I guess I should dig around my attic everyday. wink** Who knows what I could find .

I have been thinking about how to use these pretty little things . I am going to use them to decorate the Easter gifts I give to the ones I love . I like the outward appearance of each gift I give to reflect some aspect of the taste of the person to whom I am giving it to and possibly have a reference of the gift itself. These will work perfectly.

If I do not post for a couple days you will know where I am--IN THE ATTIC !

Oh the treasures one can find in an attic! I remember ours from my youth. How I wish I could go back and search there now!!! Have fun!

Those are beautiful...I am with Stone Gatherer..."Oh the treasures one can find in the attic". Too bad we really don't have big attics here in Ft. Lauderdale, no attics AND no ever do we survive?

See, you are finding things to do even though you can't garden like me. It is still to early here to do much- if that makes you feel any better. You might not have the time to make your lovely Easter gifts if you spent too much time outdoors! Hope spring comes your way soon!

Very pretty! Years ago amanda made some like that for her friends. She had beads everywhere! I am a little scared to go in the attic, but I usually find something interesting up there too. I could not find my Easter tub of decorations. I looked everywhere. Very frustrating. I keep all the holiday tubs labeled and in one spot in the attic and somehow the Easter one was missing. So... I HAD to go to Hobby Lobby and buy all the cute bunnies and then to Kohls and Marshalls and get new linens. I'll probably see the old ones now that they have been replaced.

Hey Mel, How do you do it???? NO attic or basement. I would need to have two house.

stone gatherer, if you want to come on over I'm sure I could put you to work.

Annie, That is so funny. I lost a hug box of plastic Easter eggs for TWO years. I was so frustrated. The funny thing was. They were right were I PUT them -- Attic. oops.

I'm counting the days until spring too! I can't wait to get out there and get my hands in the dirt! Oh the things that will grow :)In the meantime, enjoy all the spring things that you are finding and the time for crafts that is left until you are busy outdoors again!

Easter is coming sooo quickly this year!! We have March break starting this weekend and then as soon as it ends, Easter is the following week.

I don't know what I'd do without a basement either.
