Ready for Spring {Friday Favorites} The Creativity Exchange

 

Happy Friday friends and welcome to another Friday Favorites!

I have spring on my mind this week.  How about you? About this time every year, I start getting antsy to see something pretty bloom, see more of the sun and spend more time outside.  I know many of you are getting hammered right now with ice and snow today (ugh!!) and I’m sure you guys are more than ready for the long winter to end! I think we could all use some spring inspiration today to get us thinking about what we are looking forward to the most when spring finally arrives.

Really more than anything, I look forward to the first blooms of the spring and they can’t get here fast enough for me.

One of my favorite flowers/trees are the cherry blossoms and if i can get my hands on a few branches this spring, I would love to create a pretty centerpiece like these:

When I think about spring, I think about lemons for some reason.  Isn’t it funny how certain foods remind us of a season?  I’m sure it’s something from my childhood that makes me crave lemons and I can’t wait to make my Lemonade Cake:

I’m also looking forward to trying some new recipes for other lemony cakes, cookies and cupcakes:

I’m really looking forward to making plans for our Easter and I love to come up with fun Easter projects that I can do with my daughter.  I ran across this adorable free printable template from EAB Designs for making this elegant stuffed bunny that I think would be so fun for us to make:

By the way, EAB Designs blog is one of my favorite blogs out there and Julie is so talented and every blog post is so amazing and beautiful.  Two years ago, I used Julie’s free printable template to make my daughter’s class these gorgeous little Easter paper favor cones that I filled with goodies.  They are so easy to make and they were a big hit:

Of course, a girl needs one or two spring accessories just to lighten up the wardrobe for the season and bring us a little smile.  I came across a fabulous Etsy store this week called Tangerine Jewelry Shop with tons of potential baubles to make us smile. Here are two of my favorites;

I love this brushed gold faceted square aqua chalcedony ring for $69.00:

also these brushed gold faceted earrings for only $35.00 are so beautiful and are perfect for spring:

Finally and one of the things I’m looking forward to most as spring arrives is spending time outdoors entertaining with friends and family, once the weather gets prettier.  I love this idea that I have been seeing all over Pinterest for freezing fruit and making skewers to keep cocktails chilled.   I can’t wait to try it and it’s perfect for nights on the patio or mixed in with champagne on Easter:
