Spring time! Next week is my birthday! I thought about sharing some birthday DIYs but I only have a couple saved so I decided to just keep up with the fun Spring finds.

Weekly Dose On Rockwood Lane #7:
Banana Nutella Snack Cake from Inside BruCrew Life:
I LOVE banana recipes! I don’t have any on hand, but an easy thing to pick up. And combining it with the delicious hazelnut flavor of Nutella?! Yes, please! Want to try something different? Last time I was in the Nutella aisle, I saw a cookies and cream version. Mmm!
Four Ways to Wear a Yellow Skirt for Spring from Putting Me Together:
One of my friends is head over heels in love with this yellow color, and she has lots of shirts, pants and dresses of it. Now every time I see something yellow, I think of her, and really, the color is quite pretty. Not sure if I could pull off the yellow skirt, but I really like this outfit, especially with the print top. Might need to get one to see 😉
Turn Grapevine Wreaths into a Whimsical Cup & Saucer Planter (Photo Tutorial) from Purple Hues and Me:
This cup and saucer planter is too cute! The purple flowers really pop in it too! I don’t think I have the patience to build the cup and saucer, but I am feeling inspired… Maybe I can crochet something like this with flowers I can’t kill, hehe – I don’t have much of a green thumb.
Cactus Scrubby (Free Crochet Pattern) from Whistle & Ivy:
THIS.IS.AWESOME! And it’s functional. I think this is so perfect with the texture of the scrubbie yarn, but I think I would make them just to decorate with – too pretty to use, hehe. Would make an excellent gift!
Girls Bohemian Maxi Skirt (Photo Tutorial & Free Sewing Pattern) from Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Mom:
THAT FABRIC! I am in love! It definitely screams Spring to me, but this would be perfect any time of the year for a little girl. The fabric itself is a cotton blend, which really is perfect anytime (especially here in Florida). Make this skirt in any print, or change the length by simply cutting the pattern shorter.
