{nifty thrifty sunday #103}

Welcome to this week's {nifty thrifty sunday}!

The weather is starting to get more spring-like and the temperature is finally above freezing. Yay!
We went for a walk to a nearby ice cream parlor today & had our first ice cream for the season today and I swear I could smell summer coming. ;)

What's the weather like in your part of the world? Has spring arrived yet?

Here are some of my favorites from last week's {nifty thrifty sunday}:

{1} A Tossed Salad Life: Felt Arrow Bookmark

{2} Twigg Studios: Spring Lemon Tart with Shortbread Crust

feature2

{4} Spool & Spoon: Paper Bow Template & Tutorial

feature3
{5} Sew Paint It: Pincushion Swap

{6} A Pinch of Joy: Strawberry Pina Colada Dessert

    Here in North Carolina, Spring keeps teasing us … here for a couple of days, and then gone again. I’m ready for her to make her appearance permanent! Glad you enjoyed your ice cream. :-) Have a fabulous week, Vanessa!
