Welcome Spring!!!

Just letting Spring know that I am ready!!!


A little project: I got these letters super cheap at Walmart. But I needed them to be glittery pink. Not a problem that Martha Stewart and I can't fix!

When I bought these two chocolate-looking bunnies at JoAnn's last month, I knew immediately that I was going to string a banner between them. : )

AND THEN... I found this amazing architectural piece at our local antique store. The perfect setting for my bunnies! Not sure where it will end up one day.




I got this cute little Easter Cone at TJ Maxx.

Still having fun with my new Artist's Hand.These three little bunny fairies also came from TJM.






And lastly, I found this little apothecary jar at a local Thrift Store last night for only $4.99. I'd been wanting a tiny one for a while now. I LOVE the pastel eggs in it. But I need to go buy some more eggs to finish filling up the taller jar.


Oh Spring...how I adore thee! : )

I can't believe you found that cute stuff at TJMaxx! Ours never has that kind of cuteness!

I found an apothecary jar JUST like that a few weeks ago at a thrift store in Austin for 2.99. Score for us! LOL

I discovered your blog a month ago and I LOVE it. I get so many ideas from you. Can I ask what do you use to make the banner (string) is it some kind of garland? You have the best ideas for decorating so whimsical.Thanks for the inspiration.

The chocolate bunnies are perfect with the banner. All of your decorations and vignettes are inspiring....makes me forget all about winter. (It's 17-degrees here today)I can never resist T.J.'s or Marshall's. I wish we had HomeGoods-that's the best of all.

I love how your "spring" banner turned out! Especially when being held by two chocolatey bunnies. :)

And I am totally in love with apothecary glass - they are so great for displays!

Hi Mary Lou,
I just talked to my mom and she did not use a long arm machine to quilt my quilt. She has a machine called a Husquavana mega quilter which sits on a Handy Quilter Frame. I am not a quilter but she said to tell you this machine has a 10 inch throat. A regular machine has a 6 inch throat. I hope this helps a little. She also said this was a fun pattern to quilt :)

Jennifer said...

I totally Love the Chocolate Bunnies with the banner! I love the Bunny Faries those are way too cute!
