Saturday Sparks Link Party 58

Welcome to Saturday Sparks 58!
A place to share your creativity and be inspired by the talents of others.
Out and about yesterday, we heard the peepers for the first time this year. This is a sure sign that Spring has officially arrived here in New Hampshire. Last weeks party had many of us rejoicing in this fresh new season.
Now, onto the Fabulous Features from Saturday Sparks 57.

Gardening Easter Basket at Elizabeth Joan Designs. Erin shares a glammed up Easter Basket idea using simple gardening items that her kids are sure to love.
