in the sweet Springtime
are old Rabbits and fresh Tulips...
the weather-people are predicting
a snow/ice storm for us tomorrow ~
(we've been extremely lucky this year
to NOT have what the rest of the country is experiencing)
I have started to bring out a few of my beloved Rabbits...
the larger one above, was a gift from my friend Donna
it was in bad shape when she handed it to me a couple of years ago,
and she asked me to fix it...
it is an early German Candy Container, made from paper mache
& I had no experience in reconstructing one before ~
but, I gathered some old quilt batting, white glue
and ashes from the woodstove and fixed his little neck
& half of his adorable head...
I can't remember where I got him, but he's been with me a long time...
he's also made from paper mache or some sort of composition~
what would a Farmhouse Kitchen be without Tulips?
ahhh....I can't wait til the fresh ones arrive at our local market...
the ones above are 'faux', purchased from Michaels about 5 years ago...
....speaking of Farmhouse Kitchens,
I wanted to thank you girls that left me comments yesterday
regarding my kitchen make-over
and how you like the kitchen just as it is now!
I tried hanging some of the tablecloths to replace the curtains,
and it just doesn't work...
& look for a pale-to-butter yellow cotton check
...I think that will give me the look I'm after...
THANK YOU !!
I will surprise you with the finish soon !!!
Blessings from the Farm...
