Spring is HERE!!!

Last week was GORGEOUS... it was 60's and sunny almost all week. Which in WI where I live is very rare. So I was feeling a smidge spoiled... until Mother Nature sent us a wake up call!

Ring, Ring... "Hello Dawn, put away the flip flops... it's still March!"

Yes, Saturday morning I woke up to 1" of snow on the ground. Yes, Friday was 59 and beautiful, Saturday was freezing! Crazy, I know! I felt really bad for the two robins I saw hopping around the yard looking for worms. I almost wish I had little birdy booties to keep their feet warm. They're not used to that cold, white, fluffy stuff!

So in honor of spring officially being here on the calendar (and it is supposed to return in weather this week), I've designed these robins nest earrings. They turned out quite cute. Hope your week is loaded with sunshine, happiness and all sorts of wonderful new beginnings (like flowers & baby birds!) :)

Hi Dawn
Your new earrings are the perfect way to welcome Spring! It was beautiful here in VA..right around 70 degrees. :-)

Love the earrings Dawn...perfect for spring!!!
I really like copper, I tried to introduce it in my work almost three years ago and my customers weren't interested...I'm thinking of giving it a try again & see what happens.

I know, the weather is crazy here as well...very warm and sunny for over two weeks...Saturday, Sunday & today...still sunny but cold...thank goodness we didn't get the snow the forecast was calling for though!!!

Gotta go, I'm off to the dentist...
Have a great day Dawn!
Cheers
