Getting ready for Easter

Our plans for Easter ~ is going to my cousins house,
along with about 50+ of my closest relatives.

We all bring a dish to pass,
(I always forget to bring my dish home)

so I went to Dollar Tree and picked up this
cute Easter egg platter...with no intentions of
bringing it home with me after...

 Browsing through Pinterest lately, I've seen
egg shaped plaque's painted and the family name added...

and this platter called for some personalizing!

I used my Cricut Expression and cut
out the letters on vinyl
~ personalizing it for
my cousin who's hosting Easter!

Here's what's going on top of this platter!

I haven't done much Easter decorating
I made this adorable wreath
when I saw this tutorial

I loved the cute bunnies Kristen used ~
I had to copy and use the same!

All supplies are from Hobby Lobby!

It's been very easy getting ready
for Easter!

Thanks for stopping by!

Spring Fever

I'm joining in on DebbieDoos Copycat Challenge party today!

I've had this magazine since April 2001...

I don't normally keep magazines this long
but I...L.O.V.E.D. this cover from
Victoria Magazine - Spring Fever!

Here's my version of this beautiful cover~

I used a cupcake holder from Home Goods and
filled the holders with reindeer moss, chocolate eggs,
some faux eggs and the ones holding the flowers ~
are white egg shells.

The bunny...I made!
I searched everywhere
for a white chocolate bunny...with no luck.


I have this old bunny mold that I
got at the flea market about 15 years ago,

I bought it to use as an Easter decoration
and never made chocolate bunnies...
until now!

Now, if I can only
keep it looking like this till Easter...

there are family members here
who want to bite the bunny's ears off!

Thanks for stopping by!

Memory bank

Seems like i have a reoccurring project theme
going on here...yes, it's another thrift store chair...

 here's the ~after~

 I passed by this chair, all alone in the thrift store

I realized why -

 it had the dreaded gash in the cane
I've overlooked many of these orphans in the thrift stores

however, I remembered reading a post from
Miss Mustard Seed on what to do with a cane issue like this,

 so I backed up and purchased this lonely chair for...$4.00!

 the gash is hard to see in the picture but it's there...

Painted Pure White ASCP on the chair and
used my left over drop cloth fabric for the seat, front and back
{trim is from Hancock Fabric}
I followed MMS's tutorial

I did a minimal amount of sanding and then wax (clear)

This is now in the guest bedroom, where my favorite guest sleeps,
my granddaughter!
Where we have some Goodnight Moon reading time together!

Thanks for stopping by!
