The Spring is here! Is it? Is it?!

Just take a look what I saw this morning after yesterdays blizzard! Well, the snow have been here for days, but today there's even more snow and the trees are sparkling covered with frost.
Could not come out and take a closer look, because I have much to do today. It's 14 °F (-10 °C). Doesn't seem very Spring like to me! It's always like that in Lithuania. We enjoy the REAL Spring (no snow, warm weather) only at the end of April. I'll have to wait for it to come...

HUNGRY? Craft for food!

I'm a proud member of Etsy Street Team with funny name Will Craft For Food (WCFF). The team has it's own blog which is curated by Moody Girl.
Probably as all (almost all lol) team members I'm unemployed and every time I hear strange noises in my stomach I know I have to craft... for food. Here's what WCFF blogs curator seas about the idea of the team:

The Spring Fair in Vilnius

I love fairs! The one I especially like is Kaziukas fair. These are the fresh pics made this weekend.
Kaziukas fair is annual event in Lithuania. It brings a lot of joy for citizens and tourists every spring. The fair has been running for more than 400 years!
It's a great opportunity for local artist to come out and show what they have created during long winter season. You can find here: clay pots, sculptures, wicker baskets, blacksmith creations, handmade clothes, natural beer, food etc. etc.
I could not take pictures of all the great stuff because the fair was huge and it was so cold that day, my hands and camera were freezing. I was also carrying my baby girl all the time so there's no way I could walk all through it. I hope you enjoy the pics! Click the pictures to enlarge.
