Morning Stretch!

Good Morning Everyone!!
Wow! We've been gone a bit...we've been busy at the Store
and at our booth at The Maumee Antique Mall...

Life
 just seems to be flying by...
so when we were doing a little yard clean up
and walked along side of the house this weekend

we stopped
dead in our tracks...



Isn't this lovely....
Life speeds up for us...
while nature just does what it does
every season
every year


Sometimes we just need to slow down...


and enjoy the simple joy of seeing
ferns coming up out of the ground....


It reminded us to enjoy the sunshine
and to stretch up....


and enjoy the small things in life
that might have never been seen
if we didn't just take the time!

Reminding you to take it easy today and 
to open your eyes to the things we don't see when we are 
rushing around ;)


Enjoy your Tuesday everyone!!

A Tisket A Tasket....

A Blue & Yellow 
Basket??

Soooo......we had some garden tools...
and we painted them...
then
MAGIC
started to happen!


We were trying to figure out just what to do with these 
to show everyone 
WHY
they needed them!


First we put a votive cup in them...
and of course a candle ~ how cute would that be sitting on your table...
a bunch of painted bulb planters
lighting up the dinner conversation!


THEN....we took one of our pretty floral pics 
and sat it in the bulb planter
SUPER CUTE vase ~ truly loved this idea!


But the idea that won out for our display
was sticking some moss inside the cup 
and putting some sweet eggs inside!


Both of of our bulb planter sold during Open House this weekend...
I think we'll be on the look out for more...
how about you?

Keep Creating!!

Hippity Hoppity On Over Here!

Because this is just the cutest idea...
and it was soooo
EASY!



1. Find a pretty Vintage plate



These will do!

2. Print out some bunny silhouettes 
and cut them out 
with a handy dandy exact-o knife!




3. Plop that adorable bunny on your plate 
and position it where you need it



4. Trace that beautiful bunny 
on your plate with a pencil....



Ta da!!!

5. Fill that bunny in with either
some black ceramic paint
(or another color!)


or use a Sharpie Oil marker
(we used gloss in both...the sharpie was definitely easier to apply...
but the marker won't go as far as the paint....just saying!)


6. Let it dry....and put that 
seriously cute bunny plate in a special spot
 that you'll see every day

(it will make you extremely happy...we promise!)


WARNING!!!
These are 
so darn cute
and will
MULTIPLY quickly.....


You just won't be able to stop making them ~ lol!!!


Join us today as we try a new blog party today...




Then let's Hop on over to Elephants & Ivy for
 and let's see what blooming about for SPRING why don't we?!!



Have a Happy Day Everyone!

Ring Around The Silver

Something unexpected in your wreath...

Makes you go mmmmmm...
{or whatever initial you'd use lol!}


Karrie stenciled this silver platter last fall
 and put it in her Christmas wreath...
it was only right that she put it in her spring wreath
for a lovely game...of
  ring around the silver ;)

Something simple...
but oh so fun!!


Hope you're finding Spring 
wherever you are today!

Face Transplant


Have you ever had one of 
those days....

where you are putting something away and you 
know
that if you don't move that little treasure
it will most likely fall and shatter into a few zillion pieces?

do you listen?


listen
 to the 
sweet little Copley bird planter 
that your sister got you
fall

fall

fall
onto the floor 
and it's beak flying and hitting the wall

yep...
should have listened....


But 
it was a minor repair
{don't think that I wasn't going to go hop on eBay to find another to replace it lol!}

all is well...
at least for the moment!

Hope you're having a great day
 that requires no glue :)
