April around the corner! Spring is on its way!

Finally, March is heading out the door, fingers cross it goes out like a lamb! The snow is almost all melted here on the East Coast.

To bring a little spring into my home, even though it is cold outside, I have tried an experiment that many elementary schools perform each March\April....forcing branches to bud and bloom early.

I have in my kitchen window, a large vase of water with cut branches of wild cherry, apple, plum, honeysuckle. After 7 days, they are now budding out and a few leaves have gently opened... Hoping to have some blooming in another week or so!  The smell should be divine!

Here are the bead sets posted on Ebay this week, head over and place your bids!
