Spring

While Bruce and I were walking yesterday, we were barely able to make out these ducks. It took some looking to find his "wife". I was very pleased with how this came out despite the distance and my not so fancy camera. We can finally say the snow has melted everywhere but the ski hill. Spring is also about Spring Cleaning....As a child we moved alot. My mom didn't save many of our things because it was expensive to move it all. As a result, I've saved almost every toy my three children own!!!!!! The attic had become a place to open the door and throw things in...literally! Now that the kids are almost grown, I'm trying to get it organized in the next two weeks (so I can tackle the rest of the house). We've lived in this home for 19 years...that's alot of accumulating. I'm ashamed to post a before pic, but will tomorrow so I can show my after pic.
While up in the attic I rediscovered these two treasures. I used to crochet little outfits for the girls dolls, obviously even their trolls. The red outfit was made specifically to show off the Treasure Troll's gem on her belly! Too much!

The Troll Clothes are so funny! The red one that shows off the belly take the cake! I wonder if I will be making clothes for my daughter's dolls when she gets older.

I love the trolls. You won the fabric squares from my giveaway. If you don't mind I'll just send them with your swap package.

Aloha! Thank you for visiting me! I love your picture of the duckies. Nature is something to be admired, isn't it?

Your trolls are adorable, too. Their clothes are so sweet!

I had to smile at the trolls. I had a few on my desk when I was in college. I loved those little things. I found one of them in our attic and gave it to my 4 year old daughter. She isn't as taken with it as I was. I still think they're cute.
Thanks for popping by my blog and commenting on my sling bag. I just finished an owl sling bag for my daughter.
