I've got Spring Fever!

Hi Blogerettes!  Have you got it too??  Spring Fever that is.
I want everything in my house to look all light, flowee (is this a word?) and fresh.  That's why I created another burlap runner in this creamy vanilla and added the softest voile ruffles on each end.

This is a really long one.  It measures over two yards long. Whew, that's a lot of fabric to wrestle with!  It's also burlap on both sides, so it's nice and weighted.

Along with Spring Fever comes bird's nests and thanks to Karen at Graphic Fairy I used this sweet bird nest image for this
burlap pillows.

I hope to list these two pieces in my etsy shop within the next day or so!

Now, it's time for me to go blog hopping and see what all of you have created with Spring Fever in mind.  I know you have, so I better get started.  You talented bloggerettes are the best ever and thanks to you I am inspired everyday!!

I love when you share your new items, Sissie! They are always so pretty and make me smile. Love that runner! I have linen drapes for my dining room that I'll be putting up to lighten things up a bit. They are the color of your runner. Just need to get drapery rings and I'll be ready to go {hopefully this weekend}!
