Aaaaahhhhhhh.... spring...
Awake, thou wintry earth -
Fling off thy sadness!
Fair vernal flowers, laugh forth
Your ancient gladness!
~Thomas Blackburn, "An Easter Hymn"

Learn how to make lollies here.
I placed them into different sized pots mod podged with the dictonary paper.
So now the lollies look like funky flowers.
My old door looked sad without the L*O*V*E letters hung onto it.
So I stapled strips of scrap fabric behind the window. Added a paper wreath.  Glued triangles cut out of the two dollar dictionary onto ribbon. And my door is happy again!
