The first tulips of spring

I got tired of waiting for them to pop up out of the ground so I made my own.

These are made using a pattern from the March/April issue of Create & Decorate magazine. Don't you love my fancy vase? Old jelly jar with some pink tissue paper stuffed inside.

  11. They are cute and springy! I'm sure the real ones will be coming up soon. We had such a brutal winter, I'm worried that we may never see them!

  14. Those are cute! Maybe it's because of my proximity to a certain university but the yellow one looks like duck feet to me. :)
