Vintage Marketplace, Hungry Caterpillar Birthday and Easter Freebies!!

Hello Friends!

Well here I am, trying to get in a blog post before the end of March.

And it has been a busy March!
My adorable little grandson turned one,
and I had lots of fun creating for his
Very Hungry Caterpillar birthday party!
I made this little accordian photo holder with a picture
for each of his first twelve months:

This is just the first six months showing.

 No, I didn't make the cake, but isn't it so cute?!

I did make this welcome wreath for the front door:
 My daughter and the birthday boy:

 Here he is vigorously removing the birthday crown that I had made him,
made of felt:
  I knew when I made it that it wouldn't last long, lol!

And a little banner I made,
using half of a honeycomb ball for the caterpillar head:

One year already, and you can see he is a little boy,
not a baby anymore...
But so so much fun!!

My friend Pam is expecting a new grandson this month,
so I made a scrappy little photo book for her,
all she need do is add pictures:

The cover:

And a few favorite layouts:

Made from those cute little We R Memories 4x4 books,
I just love those!!

This is a little bunny favor I made for our Paper Soiree gathering this month:

Made from a painted peat pot, he's designed for the rear view,
see his cute little bunny tail, made from fluffy felt?

Sigh...Vintage Marketplace was fantastic this spring:

Aren't these so funny?
Farm animals made from vegetables!! 

I was enchanted by these umbrellas, cups and coffeepots hanging in the trees:

It was a lovely morning,
we were glad we got there early
as it got much hotter later in the day.

Here are some freebies for you,
thanks for visiting and sticking with me through this looong post :)

How do I love this post? Let me count the ways! First, the adorable birthday boy -- cute as all get-out (and mom is pretty, too!). Then his wonderful decorations -- that caterpillar frame and his banner and wreath, the inventive and colorful cake. Of course, there is that bunny peat pot favor you did, and if you don't mind, I'm borrowing that design for Easter's table! The wonderful market and all those fabulous shopping possibilities -- how did you refrain? And then the terrific Easter shares. Thank you! I see cards in my immediate future!

I always miss it when you're not around -- so glad to have this post brighten my chilly March morning!

Hello Lorraine.
This is my first visit to your blog (via Dorthe, Denlillelade) and I have found so many wonderful things to see inc. your dear little grandson who has just turned one!!

I did enjoy your tour of the Vintage Marketplace and also visiting your Pinterest boards - some fantastic images to see there. I even saw a little of my own creativity posted there.

Have a wonderful Easter celebration!



What an adorable party for the sweet and cute grandboy! What fun it must've been?
Hope you had a lovely Easter.
