A sure sign of spring....

Signs of spring are everywhere around my house:

The peach tree is blossoming.  

The air is warm.

And there's a silent auction basket sitting on my dining room table.  

I'm not exactly sure why spring and silent auctions go hand-in-hand, but they do!  

And much like last year, I am once again making a basket to be auctioned off (though for a different cause this time).  

For this one I picked up some plastic wine glasses, a wine opener, and some wine charms at Homegoods....

I put them all in this darling insulated picnic basket.  

(Can't you just see yourself using it at a Fourth of July picnic??)

Then I made a cute little tag with my Silhouette...

And finally, I added two bottles of wine.

Unfortunately I didn't get a picture of the wine (and no, I didn't drink it ;)  but I can assure you that the whole thing looks great all packaged together.

Now I just need to bid on it  ;)

Happy Spring everyone!!
