Spring {Ahead} Thrifting (and CSN Stores Giveaway!!)

I hit up one of my favorite thrifting jaunts last week and I was walking around with only these in my hands.
They are tiny speckled eggs. It took me awhile to really see what else I wanted.
I did come home with a nice little stash (and only spent $8.75!!)

I loved this tiny rustic house. It looks like a bunny cottage (and I also found this bunny figurine for my Easter village)

I liked the quote on this Irish mug.

and the painted shamrocks..
It was actually made in Ireland!!

I also picked up this mossy basket and some more blocks.

and these Easter eggs that look hand painted.

More blocks! Look at the knife on one of them! ?
They were giving out free shamrocks at the garden center yesterday. I popped one into the mossy basket and it looks all fresh and springy!

I also picked up some wheat grass for this basket and added another shamrock plant for a sweet springy look. So even though it's not quite Spring yet, I'm getting a head start on it. 
(Hence the title Spring Ahead).

It's still Blogiversary week so please enter my csnstores gift card giveaway!!
This giveaway is now closed.
