A Little Bit of Spring Inspirations

I thought that a couple of cute spring ideas might be perfect right now. 
This cute birds nest idea comes from a blog by Sarah Ortega.  
I imagine that the eggs could be made with beads or polymer clay.  
What a cute spring idea!  

 
 And Bonnie McLain published this adorable spring tag.  Such creativity!  
This would make a fabulous gift tag for a planted spring flower.  Very creative!

HAPPY SPRING!

Shabby Chic Style Greeting Card

This was a fun Shabby Chic style card to make.  I just started grabbing a bunch of odd left overs that I had laying around and started layering.  If you like the look of something, it's probably your "style".  If you keep saving your leftovers, they probably "go together" well!  I love the look of lots of layers too!  Enjoy yourself and happy scrappin'!

Unique Colorful Dip - Cowboy Caviar

Are you tired of the traditional dips?  Don't get me wrong, I love salsa, ranch, and other traditional dips!  But, when you try something truly unique, it can become quite addictive.  This dip is just that, ADDICTIVE!  It's a good thing that this recipe makes a big huge bowl full!  I adapted the Cowboy Caviar recipe that I found on Recipelion to get to this version.

Combine all of the following ingredients, chill and serve with chips.

1 can whole sweet corn, drained
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
4 roma tomatoes, diced
1 bunch green onions, chopped including greens
1 bunch cilantro, chopped or 1/3 tube cilantro herb blend
3/4 bottle of zesty italian salad dressing
2-3 Tbls. lime juice
1 avocado, chopped
1 can black olives (optional)

I would think that this would be a hit at any potluck or party.  It's just so unique and not something that most people have tried. I also would think that it should be fairly diet friendly since there is nothing too awful bad in it.  Use low calorie dressing and baked chips to make it extra healthy.  Enjoy!

Troublesome Squirrel

Can you believe this guy?
 My bird feeder really is intended for the birds.  Like this beautiful little guy!

But, this innocent looking squirrel decided that he really needed that bird food!

Notice the thin iron bird feeder holder on the right of this photo; he actually climbed it!
Then he hung by his toes!
I suppose hanging by his toes gave him the best vantage point for eating the bird seeds!
