This little "Picket Fence" garden box was perched on top of the mountain, and shamed me each time I looked in it's direction. I've had it for years, and used it out on the sun porch for seasonal fun; Spring and Christmas were my favorites.
I was tired of it taunting me, so I thought I'd give it a chance as a smallish Easter Centerpiece. There are so many cute and fun interpretations with a window box or industrial box out there, surely I could come up with something for the kitchen table.
I lined it with cardboard to keep the shredded Easter Grass inside. I finally made it to HL, and they had most of the Easter goodies at 40% off.
I found these colorful Easter Egg picks a few weeks ago. They were part of my retail therapy, only problem was I didn't know what in the world I'd do with them.
Here are a few pics as I sat down prepared for some much needed inspiration. I have so much stuff, I was determined I wasn't going to go out and spend more money. My old stand-by paper mache Easter Bunny that I've had for at least 30 years, was waiting for a tryout. Only problem was that her Bunny Butt was a little too big, so I had to think of something else. (anyone else have a problem with a Bunny Butt that's a little big?) I had to opt for a different paper mache bunny who wasn't quite so wide.
While I was setting here taking a few pics, my little buddy came up to check out Bunns.
Well, Hello there. Ooooh, just the right size to get a good scratch going. feels great...
whoops, sorry mom, I don't think I did that...
I was just a little to enthusiastic with the scratching.
I'm just glad she feels like getting into mischief again. We've doubled her insulin, but she still has higher than wanted glucose numbers, but she's doing so much better.
Back to the little fence box... I used some vintage painted clay flower pots with votive candles inside, and added a few vintage Easter Postcards for some color and fun.
You can see that I changed up the quilt and pillows on the wicker settee. It was time to put away the brown and bring out the pastel vintage Tumbling Blocks quilt. I really enjoy using it for Spring, it's so bright and sunny with pinks, blues, and yellows. I'll share that next week.
I searched the linen closet for a lighter, fresher "tablerunner" and found this little antique linen piece that has an added crocheted fringe.
This little centerpiece was so easy to put together, I just needed to have a few seasonal elements, with a few staples. It could work for any season with pumpkins for Fall or little evergreen trees for Christmas. Now that this little piece is out of the "sell pile", I'm going to try to use it more often.
Have a great weekend,
we'll be in the 70's.
