What a joy it was to take a walk with my two youngest granddaughters in the little wooded area near our home and find flowering quince in the midst of the underbrush and brambles.
I've been enjoying a few branches of it in my home.
My oldest granddaughter and I each bought a little cloth bunny at JoAnn's fabric store for under $1.50 apiece.
They are made from white cloth and come unclothed.
I tea stained my bunny to soften the stark white a bit, while my granddaughter chose to keep hers as is.
Then we both dressed our bunnies in some scraps of fabric, lace and ribbon from my sewing box.
What a simple, fun and inexpensive spring craft!
I find the color of the flowering quince to be delightfully difficult to describe.
It's not a true pink or red but more of a coral or salmon color,
yet even those words don't quite capture it.
These flowering branches and this cute little bunny have brought a touch of spring cheer into my home on the gray, rainy days we've had this past week.
I hope my photos have brought you a little spring cheer as well!
