Double Cherry Blossoms


   I've been working on these double cherry blossoms for the past couple of weeks, and I think that finally, I have them right.  I'm not a great photographer, but I couldn't resist putting my bunch of hand-made cherry blossoms in the budding tree in my backyard and snapping a pic.  This small bouquet is light as air, and can be saved forever.  I think that they turned out nicely, and would be gorgeous on the top or side of a simple wedding cake.  It's Spring, time of new beginnings!

               ......And lest you think that my blossoms aren't hand-made:  Here is the same bunch of flowers in a teacup on my kitchen table.  Happy Spring!

Baby Blue Chicks and Duckies

      It's Spring!
Quite a while ago I pinned the ideas
for both of these projects.....well, I finally got around to trying them out...and, they turned out cute!  Just right to put on top of cupcakes or cookies.  The chicks are jordan almonds and the duckies are gumballs.  (The violets are real-happily growing in my backyard.)  Happy Spring!
