Flickr Favorites - Monday Edition


Did you ever make on of these? I love these colors.

Illustrated cans by Jackie Is A Peppermint.

I'm enjoying the style of this feather necklace.

I covet this needlework pillow!

This piece by Tielsk is beautiful!

I'm currently drawing a blank on Easter craft projects or decoration! HELP! Does anyone have any fun projects that they're doing?

xoxo,
Rachel

p.s. I keep forgetting to announce that we've got some spots left for April ads if you're interested in sponsoring Smile And Wave. Just check this page for details and then send your information to Leigh-Ann at Frecklednest (at) gmail (dot) com. Thanks for stopping by!

I've blogged about a couple of fun Easter projects. Both involve food but they can be used for cute centerpieces or as gifts for Easter guests.
Easter cookie baskets located here:

I love Easter and am so excited it's nearly here!

Those potholders are adorable!!! I made so many of those when I was younger :-)

Pearl of 'Pearl's potholders' are my neighbors. They have a whole family of art geniuses and an urban farm in their back yard. Amazing!

Those cans are BEAUTIFUL! You amaze me how you have been able to keep it going with the new babe. My new little was born in Sept and is the worst napper ever and I get nothing done all day!
Oh and P.S. Your blog design is SO freaking cute! Do you mind sharing how you got the patterned background on there as well as the trim at the top? I'm back to blogging after a long hiatus and I so not computer savy. I really want my blog to look as cute as yours!

i did a diy feature a few weeks ago on my blog on how to make a spring baby grass wreath. i used daisies as accents but i've had some crafty ladies email me with easter eggs on their wreaths.
check it out if you'd like! xo, patty :-)

Casey said...

I remember making those potholders all the time when I was a kid! So fun to do :)

These peeps over a Made are super cute, I'm hoping to at least get some door hangers made of them in time for Easter, http://www.dana-made-it.com/2010/03/peeps-winners-and-bunny-door-hangers.html
