I found this little banner at Cherry Hill Cottage. Mika, Tina's daughter makes them so I snagged one. I added little wooden bunnies at the corners. My little hutch is a wee bit over done...but hey...it EASTER! The more bunnies the better!
Easter decorations are now getting into full swing. I went off to Michaels and bought myself a sheet of ..some very smooth firm board. It isn't foam but something like it. I spray painted it brown and used craft glue to attach sheets of moss. Only and top and edges are painted. I love the way it looks.
I found these four little Lefton chickies on ebay. I won the auction and was so excited. I have always wanted a couple of these and I won four! Well, they arrived.. and were double boxed with peanuts between them and the outside larger box.
Each chick was wrapped in tissue and then in a couple of layers of bubble wrap. I was just starting to unwrap the second little chick and it was just about two inches above the counter. I was being very careful and was about to cut the tape when suddenly it smashed down on the counter and I heard a "CRUNCH!" Howard jumped and turned around and said "Wow..that sounded like something broke! What happened?!" I could not believe it! I had NOT dropped it. It just jerked and banged down on the counter suddenly and I also heard the sound of breakiing glass. I carefully opened it the rest of the way...undid the layers bubble and tissue and...yep. The entire toe was broken off! We just stood there shocked looking at one another.
I have no explanation..other than...LOL Poltergist? A ghostie with a an inclination to scare Mele and smash chickies. :) It mended beautifully and you can't even tell.
