My "Pretty Little Things" box arrived today!

The first thing I noticed when I walked into our kitchen after work today was a priority mail box.  I knew right away what it was.  I was quick to open it and looked at every little thing inside.  Thank you again to Rebecca Ersfeld for Vintage Living and her 300 followers giveaway. I will just look at the box of treasures for a while but I know that I'll have a great time using the things inside.  I tried to take a few pictures to show you some of the things inside.

This the box before I opened it

This shows some of the treasures inside the box

After I finished looking through the pretty things in the box and we had some dinner I started working on a project for a fun spring decoration for our kitchen. We have tub after tub of Christmas decorations but when it come to Spring decorating we don't have much.  I had seen the idea while looking around at blogs and clicking from one to another looking for ideas for spring.  I found this on a great blog called Lipstick and Laundry .  She had a link to the tutorial for this project and here they are my PEEPSWhen I saw these it took me back to Easter time when I was young.  We usually had the little yellow chicks.

I hung them first across the china cabinet

I think they will stay above the window
I had to add a blue one to match my blue and yellow kitchen

Happy Spring!
