Normally this would be the April 1 post, but tomorrow my mother is coming to visit, so the home is now festive for Easter.
I made this banner, but someone local handmade the letters. I could have done the calligraphy and hemmed them with my sewing machine, but purchasing several types of material would have been more. I attached two ribbons to a knitting needle and pushed it through, and then made decorative bows for the ends.
On the chalkboard, I sketched in a jackrabbit, and my daughter drew in some colorful Easter eggs for their hunt.
The little birds are new, and they were either 50 cents or one dollar a piece a couple of weeks ago at a Micheal's sale.
The button handmade garland now has Easter egg, colored ornaments from Urban Outfitter's Christmas clearance for just two dollars a package!
These sketches are mine. In the drawing a cactus is now blooming.
Here's a sketched baby cottontail; they out number the jackrabbits in the desert.
A sentinel quail and the cottontail... They often eat side by side.
I crafted all the garlands.
I made a nest for great grandmother's wooden Polish Easter egg.
To make the nest, I cut up jute, sisal, faux feathers, and raffia.
I enjoy symbols and literature allusions.
The rabbit that my mother made is holding a banner that says "bloom".
party , parties, a special dinner, we use this table as a desk. The pitcher is from Ikea.
Again it's a mix of collected, old, new, and crafted.
Thank you for visiting our little space.
