♥ New Tea Infusers ♥

Yes, it's time to add more tea infusers to my Etsy shoppe! I have so many more to make, but wanted to share what I've done so far. I seem to not be the only one who loves owls. Everytime I add owls to my shoppe, they get snatched up quickly. It's a great problem to have. ;)
I have a terrible addiction to Farmville I must admit. And when I saw this adorable little black and white cow, I had to get him. I know plenty of Farmville addicts! ;)
Of course, you know I'm irish, so I have to always have a good supply of shamrocks on hand!
This is my favorite tea infuser of all times. It's just so dainty and elegant!
I'm not a frog lover, though I know people who do collect frog items. But I had to have this cute little guy! He reminds me of an amazon rainforest frog!
Hope you're having a wonderful TEA-rrific weekend!

♥ Happy Friday! ♥

I have been watching this tree all week and today when I was leaving for work, I noticed all the pink blossoms had exploded over night! I'm not sure what type of tree this is. It has these delicate little blossoms in the spring and then has red maple-tree-looking leaves the rest of the year. At any rate, our weather has been rather crazy this winter and we are experiencing an early spring. I hope the frost doesn't get this tree! It brightens up the whole front yard and makes me think of sunshine-y days ahead!

Hope you're having a wonderful Friday and best wishes for the weekned!

Keep on crafting,
Sheri :)
