Sweet Spoolie

Do you want to see something really cute?
 
Sandy from "521 Lake Street" had an Easter Spoolie Swap.
 I was paired with Joyce from "Scrap For Joy".
She created this darling Spoolie.
It is perched high atop a vintage Jello mold.
I just love it, Joyce!
Joyce is an amazingly creative lady.
She made this adorable swag.
I love the tiny creatures she so artfully crafted.
Thank you, my sweet new friend!
 
Do you see what I see?
Polka dots a plenty...
Joyce gave me two of the cutest little egg cups.
I just love them!
 
Bunny Express with a truck load of fresh carrots...
Could they be from Mr. McGregor's Garden?
 
 
Tea Time at Chenille Cottage 



Bunny Hugs...

The Red Hutch all decked out for Spring.
My grandmother passed her Desert Rose dishes on to me.
I have many memories of Easter dinner at her house as a girl.
I miss her so much!






















Dearest Joyce,
Thank you for this darling keepsake.
It is so sweet and will grace my kitchen this Spring.
I love every thoughtful gesture and each lovely gift.
In the coming weeks I will be sharing all of your red pretties, too.
I am thankful to have gained a dear new friend.
I'm so happy you stopped, my dear blogging family and friends.

Blessings to each one of you
 and a Happy Spring!

Carolynn  xoxo


"For, lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone.
The flowers appear on the earth;
 the time of the singing of birds is come
 and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land.

The fig tree putteth forth her green figs,
 and the vines with the tender grapes give a good smell.
Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away."
Song of Solomon 2:11-13

Elaine @ Sunny Simple Life said...

I was wondering what a spoolie was. I see very pretty. Hope all is well. Been a busy running around spring break. Teens never seem to want to stay home do they? What is the matter with them?

Jann Olson said...

Oh Carolynn your spoolie gift is just the sweetest! What a creative gal she is. I love your Desert Rose collection. That is one thing I don't collect. Love it, but must resist! lol! It looks so lovely in your hutch Have a safe trip and God bless your sweet mother!

Scrap for Joy said...

You make me blush! I am so happy that the little spoolie has joined your other charming Spring decorations. Eeeeeek! I see that bunny on the bicycle with the carrots....you better hide him. The Desert Rose dishes look beautiful in your hutch. I'm sorry now that I passed on keeping my Mother's. every thing you do has such a loving touch....I love coming here to visit to see what you're "up to".
We are finally having Spring weather here today with more in the days coming....it makes me smile and feel light of heart when the sun is shining.
Take care and enjoy the weekend!
xoxo
Joyce

Oh Carolynn those are just wonderful gifts! I am so fascinated with the spoolies. Spring is such a wonderful time of year. I also love that you posted one of my life verses at the end, Song of Solomon 2:11 -13. It is always so fun visiting you dear friend. You always lift my spirits and make me think of things above!

Patti said...

Oh, I'm loving your spring dress up on the red hutch! I just want to come over and see your cute house in person! You sure had a nice spoolie swap!

Love your hutch, Carolynn. Since we brought Miss Maple home (our hutch), I have such a soft spot for them. Love Beatrix Potter, especially Peter. :)
I'm on a blogging leave, mostly hanging out at my new facebook page, Glitter and a Movie, but I'm still visiting with my favorite bloggy friends.
XOXO's
