Spring and some decorating

Yesterday was the first day of spring and usually in Minnesota we still have snow on the ground and the mighty Mississippi River is still frozen but not this year! This is a picture of a willow tree by the river that is budding, I just love how they look! Here is another spring picture of some willow trees by the park. It is just so pretty!
I absolutely have spring fever and can't wait to start seeing the flowers bloom.

I got a really nice surprise today. My mom went to visit my Godmother and father and she brought me home some Easter decorations that my Godmother had collected and didn't want anymore. They are so cute and of course I put them out right away. here are some pictures of them, they are Dept 56.
Here they are a little closer.

I love them! I need to go and get some grass to cover the top of my desk. That is on my "to do" list for tomorrow.
I also made an Easter tree so I thought I would share that too.
I have a few more decorations that I will share later but just wanted to share my new ones from Aunt Marge, love you and thank you!

Have a great rest of the week everyone! Until next time. Be blessed.

cute, cute, cute!!!

I used green fabric for my "grass" under my nativity (which stays up all year round) ... but you mean the grass that goes in the baskets, right?

what did you use inside the glass for the "tree"? it looks like candy :)
