Busting Out In Spring

Somewhere about the middle of February, I get the itch for the bright greens of Spring along with all of the other colors. I'm usually tired of white all over...this year it was brown. Maybe that explains the colors in the dresses of the wee Mousels.  Our week of amazing temperatures brought on the buds of green and the burst of yellow Forsythia. It's beautiful out, even though we are back into our normal range of temperatures. The early April chill has slowed some of the blossoming, but we are still ahead of usual. The lawn needs mowing and this country girl just got excited to see a dandelion ready to burst forth in yellow. I do miss the first fields of spring, covered in them.


My little friend above is Rosebud. She is my first rat and she's just loves color.




This weekend, we ventured down the road for what was the first show of the season. I'm new to this area, so I will have to try a bunch of them, until I land where my work fits best. It is a process of meet and greet and love connections made. As much as I loved the area and how we were spoiled by the Rexford Volunteers....I'm afraid I didn't fit too well. Generally we scout shows out, but I saw this one on a drive and thought ...why not? I'm a little wiser now to ask, what is your Crafter/Vendor ratio. This one has become about 80% vendors.....so not so good for me. Luckily, I did a big push in making Mousers as I knew I would have uploads the evening of the show. All of the Mousels were happy to do a photo shoot and before I was all uploaded, they were being adopted.
It doesn't get much better than that! They will be leaving in the next few days...and the Wee Doll House will be a bit quiet...



The Quiet will be welcome, at least for a day or so as I complete the next rite of Spring....TAXES!
