Happy Earth Day!

The earth has provided us with beautiful plants that keep growing throughout the years. My jasmine bush cutting is thriving in this little bottle and the roots are taking over. I have enjoyed watching it grow for the past six months and may have to break the bottle to rescue and plant it in the ground. Well, at least I have more bottles to start a new one. (And maybe I can take the broken glass and put it into a rock tumbler to recycle for a future craft project.)

Happy Earth Day!

Inspiration From A Fellow Blogger!

My in-laws had an antique collectables business that was sold last year.  It accumulated mostly from garage sales and estate sales. Going through everything was a big task (either toss, sell or KEEP.) I caught myself grabbing items that were just about to be tossed. I stuck this wire basket away thinking that one day I will create something new.

Mary Alice from one of my favorite vintage blogs, chateau chic, displayed "an inspiration piece" on her post HERE (scroll down post until you see her beautiful wire basket.) Thank you Mary Alice for always inspiring me!

What The Easter Bunny Left Behind!

Hope everyone had a Happy Easter! Just a little late posting my Easter decorating. By taking a few little items aside, we are springing forward to Spring!

The moss or fungus in the bunny's basket I found on the trunk of my cypress tree. It is unusual, but loved the look.

These eggs I like to bring out every year that I made by using tissue paper and "Mod Podge". I also glued the tissue paper around the candle. (Don't throw out your tired old candles. I had some that were given to me that had faded so always store your candles separated from one another...I use tissue paper.)

I discovered these ceramic eggs at Hobby Lobby a while ago and was surprised at how real they look. (They are located on the jar/bottle aisle.)

And of course, I had to get in on the "Peeps" explosion and buy me a package. I gave him a little sour gummy worm and stuck him in a "seed starter pot",
(set of 12 at The Dollar Tree.)

Happy Easter!
