Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #425

Messy Messy Fail - So far only one of my winter-sowing jugs has propagated - and that's one out of 9!  Hoping they are just taking their sweet time, but it's been almost a couple of months now.  

Tidy Victory - All the beautiful tulips and daffodils are nearly in full swing!  I had done some digging and replanting to coordinate colors, although it turns out I still mixed them up.  However I did pick up some garden markers from the Dollar Tree and I plan on labeling and digging up again as soon as the flowers are spent.  They will then go in labeled paper bags until the fall to be replanted.  Again.  But in the meantime, they do look darn beautiful!

Welcome to Happiness is Homemade! Our newest co-host is Allyson from Southern Sunflowers and she will be choosing the features for the month of May. Everyone shared wonderful home decor, crafts and recipes last week, but only 5 are featured each week. Let's end the suspense and get to the features and party!


various handmade crafts

Jenna, from The Painted Apron, upcycled a plastic canister by crafting it in the most amazing way just by using paper and paint. What a gorgeous color combination! She changed her canister from, as she says, "blah to awe!"

Debbie, from Debbees Buzz, hand painted champagne flutes with tropical birds for a wedding gift. I'm sure her gift recipient was thrilled with her artistic talent. Follow her tutorial to see how easily you can hand paint your own glasses!

Last week, Haekelfieber-Austria shared her crocheted chili peppers with us from her "Big Food Series." These colorful crocheted veggies are absolutely adorable! Follow her series posts as she shares the patterns to make these cuties.

Marsha, from The Little Yellow Corner Store, showed us her collection of seasonal porch decor. Her "bees and sunflowers" themed decor she uses for spring really caught my eye. I'm in love with her handmade sunflower pillow!

Ann, from The Apple Street Cottage, has the perfect craft for us to make for the special women in our lives for Mother's Day ~ Homemade Lavender Soap. I can smell the lavender by just looking at her photo, and check out that beautiful gift presentation!
