Five Senses Weekend

Hello everyone! It's time for another Five Senses Weekend!

Hear: We went grocery shopping last night and picked up this spill proof bubble container. The girls and Benjamin love to blow bubbles but usually end up spilling most of the liquid.

They were up early this morning and I am hearing the sound of laugher.



Touch: I will be touching dirt later today. I'm going to fill this strawberry planter with various annuals.


Taste: Spring M&M's are out now and some of them have little bunny ears on them!


These chocolate lambs are almost too cute to eat. Almost!


Smell: The girls and I cleaned up our writing desk yesterday and freshened up our rose potpourii.


We also started a scented card project that I'm sure I heard about from one of my blogging friends. I can't seem to remember who though so if it was you, be sure to let me know!

Put a few drops of essential oil on some cotton balls. Put them inside of a ziplock, along with some cards and leave for a few days. The cards will be slightly scented.


See: Grace took this picture of our blossoming tree. Doesn't it look like it's covered with snow?!


Clear blue skies ahead...


Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!

Kelli, looks like a lovely, yummy, sweet smelling weekend! I have been surprised at how much earlier spring comes to Texas! Of course, I guess our really northern friends say that about the entire south in general - lol! Have a great weekend! :o)

I just picked up some of those bubbles for my girls too. I did like the spill proof container. We are planting things these weekend too. It is so nice to get out and enjoy the fresh air!!

What a delightful idea to scent cards that way!! I can't even think of working on my flowers yet...way too much snow on the ground yet and too cold. Sigh. I so enjoyed your 5 senses weekend post once again!!! xox

What a neat post--very creative. Your desk is so nice (and neat)

What a great idea about the cotton balls and cards.

I bought Bubbles too, Kelli, today--(LOL) They had those huge Jugs for 2.50 at Walmart. Alexis is now in bubble heaven.

I hope the rest of your weekend is wonderful---and I can't wait until your next post--they are always so fun to read:)

Kelli,

I am going to 'scent' some cards as quickly as I can get cards, a zip lock bag, and some scent together. Great idea!

I enjoy your blog and always glean good ideas.

Thanks for dropping by to visit me. I love company. Please come again soon.

Hi Kelli,
I always enjoy this post each week!
Your cute decorations make me realize I need to get busy thinking about all that Easter and spring decor I have to dig out of the shed.
Thanks for your prayers for Grandpa; I could feel your ((hugs))
