Ok, ok...yes, I know these cute bunnies on a stick are so yesterday's news. I have seen them on everyone's blogs and LOVE them, but never got around to getting some of my own. My sister, Jen, just happened to be at Pier One today when I called. I told her about the flying bunnies and that she just HAD to get one. Not only did she get one, but she also got a couple for me. Too sweet. Have I told ya'll how much I LOVE my 3 sisters? No...well, let me tell you again. They are my best friends and I would be lost without them! Anyhoo, as I was pondering what exactly to do with these little cuties, I had an idea. See all those supplies in the picture above? That's what I started with. I already had everything sitting around waiting to be fabulatized. (yes, I just made a new word...deal) So, I started by stuffing crumpled up magazine pages into the bottom of these yard sale urn thingies. Then I popped in some floral foam, wedged it in real tight with more crumpled pages, stuck the bunnies in, covered the top with moss and...VOILA!
Yes...this is sooooo much better.
Bunnies, and toile, and moss...oH mY!
Remember this bowl I got for 50 cents at a yard sale? It is perfect for holding my fuzzy green pine cones that I paid WAY too much for, but had to have them, and now almost regret buying them, but not really. The dirt cheap bowl and the pricey pine cones just balance each other out, right? I think this might be my favorite spring decoration yet. So simple.
