Five on Friday, April 7th

5 on Friday best of the week

This past week flew by again! In case you missed it, I’ve started working on adding video to some of my tutorials. My first attempt at video was a huge learning process that took up a lot of my weekend and evenings. Which means I did not join nearly as many link parties this week. So this week’s 5 are from my Pinterest boards.

First up are these Easter Bunny eggs from Nifty Thrifty Things. With their crochet nests and wire ears, even a plain egg looks pretty darn cute.

Continuing with the bunny theme – I adore these Layered bunnies from Scrollsaw Woodworking & Crafts. I don’t have a scroll saw, but I do have a jigsaw and with the free pattern, I think I can make a few of these for my garden.

And one more bunny – an origami one! I can’t decide which one is cuter, the natural colored one or the one made from white paper.

If you have some orange and green paper in your scrap bag, these little drawstring carrot treat bags are pretty cute too! If you don’t have the right colors in you scrap bag, some fat-quarters would work too.

And last up – how about some washi tape Easter eggs? Drugstore Divas gave some of those plastic eggs a make-over that looks pretty fab.

I also have two projects of my own completed this week. The first one involved a quick fix for my Skechers. Anybody that has a pair of the Gosteps will tell you they are divinely comfortable, but they have one teeny little issue that I’ve fixed on my own pair. I also created another topiary for you. This one is a Toad, or possibly a frog prince. You decide!

Hi there! I'm Vanessa, the Shade Gardener. I live in a tiny little house in Ontario with my 2 grown boys, 2 dogs and a cat, where I do my best to grow plants in a heavily shaded yard and soil like cement. I am passionate about my family, my pets, MCM furniture and cheese. When I'm not in the garden I do a bit of crafting and sewing. Sometimes I build topiary animals from chicken wire for fun.
