28 Things

1.  Still cleaning here. The fun of it comes and goes. Mostly goes.

2.  We're having some occasional pretty days which feel a little bit like heaven.

3.  Saturday was one of those days and I took some time to do some dethatching in the yard.

A Bunny Bunting

Hello! Happy weekend!

This is bunting/banner/garland number two.

Aren't these fun burlap colors?

I ordered a lot of spring colors from Online Fabric Store when they had their burlap sale.

I kind of went burlap crazy.

And I'm not even a burlap chick.

This was going to be easy.

Just trace the bunny, cut it out, glue on a button for the eye, cut a fleece poof for the tail, glue it on, and string them together with twine.

But this burlap is very loosely woven and was really floppy.

I should have put some ModPodge on it before I cut it out. 

That would have helped it hold its shape.

But I did not.

When I realized that I had floppy (gasp) bunnies I decided to cut out felt to sew on to the back of the burlap.

Fortunately I had all the right colors from the Easter Egg Banner I made previously.

I just stitched it on with a running stitch.

This is a running stitch:

These bunnies are way more fun than the ones that eat up your garden in the spring.

And they don't poop.

Spring Cleaning

I'm a  little MIA these days.

My failure to do my spring cleaning in January has created a need to spring clean in -

Styling Shelves With Your Stuff

For some reason I hesitate to write posts like this.

Posts where I tell people what to do.

But I have these pictures.

And I need a post.

And if there is anything that I'm good at, it is putting stuff places.

A Beautiful Buffet Makeover

While I was searching out pictures for my Quickfire Hydrangeas posts, I came across this post for a buffet I made over last summer. The pictures were taken on my back porch.

That reminded me that, indeed, there was a time here that the sun did shine and my back porch was not covered in snow.
