I am artist of texture and color. I enjoy working with textiles, mixed media and the graphic arts. I am an avid cottage gardener with a love for pass along plants and big fluffy pink peonies and pink roses. Many of my tangible creations reflect my love of the garden and all its wonderful colors. I am not one who will settle for neutral colors as they bore me. I have been selling my creations online since 2002 beginning as a hobby and 10 years later my art is my full time passion.

Bunny inspiration

 Interesting how finding an inspiration piece can be the start of something creative.

I never have been particularly a person who does an Easter display. If we were hosting a dinner or festivities on this holiday, I would put together a spring centerpiece and that was about it.
I saw this bunny at a garage sale last summer. I just thought he was so cute and at 50 cents, he was going to go home with me. Maybe next Easter I would actually do a display with this lone bunny. In my travels the last few months I did find 3 more cuties, thinking at least I would have some bunnies and eggs to set out for my granddaughters to enjoy.
Then came a wonderful gift from an Easter swap I was part of this spring. Shelly sent me the most precious handmade house and a basket full of goodies. With much excitement, I created this beautiful corner vignette.

And my granddaughters could not keep their hands off the house, especially with the little surprise inside, it was so fun to peek thru the windows! And each egg has a little surprise inside. (not all candy!)

as you can see, Shelly sent me a lot more treasures in the box!
An English tea cup and tea, roses hand lotion, sweet pea seeds and chocolates....

Happy Easter to all my blogger land friends. 
Let us not forget the true meaning of Easter. Christ died on the cross for us that we may be saved from our sins. We are truly saved by his grace

What a lovely display! And all from one little bunny. I, like you, have not done an Easter display but you have inspired me! Happy Easter!
