Easter Cloches

Okay, so I'm trying to decorate for Spring and Easter.  I'm on Elements Interiors blog and see a project Kara is doing and I wanted to do it too.  So I got ready and headed to town.  I saw GW and decided to stop (for some reason my car will just not go past it) to see what was there.  BIG MISTAKE!!!  They were just starting to put stuff out and there wasn't a heard of people surrounding the baskets.  I was there for hours (REALLY) but, I got lots of GOOD stuff.  And I don't guess I'll be making the long project with Kara.  While I was there, my little girl  ...cough, cough... who will be 21 on April 2nd called and is coming home for her birthday.  So now I have a long project of getting things ready for her party. She sent me a picture of the cake she wanted and it was going to cost $300.00 (I almost fell over when I read that).  Well, needless to say, I'll be trying my hand at Fondant.  WoW, if it turns out looking anything like the picture, I'll be a happy girl.  And, no matter how it turns out I'll show you guys.

A .99 cloche with a dead butterfly (yuck) that I had gotten on a previous trip.

I took the glass thing-a-ma-jig off the base and hot glued it to the top.

I got the cabbage salt & pepper shakers .99 cents,
the little bunnies .99 cents
the Sister plate .49 cents
And some other good things too.  I'll have to show those to you later.

I had every intention on setting this up on my red table on the porch but the wind is blowing so hard that it broke one of my pole planters

So, I decided to put it in the kitchen.  I think I like it better in there anyway.

In a earlier post I wrote about going to Canton for First Monday Trade Days.  That's where I got the two little lambs and the grass/moss.

The cloche I got at Hobby Lobby (1/2 price sale) and the cross came from a trip to Belize.  This to me, is a perfect picture of Easter.  The lambs (Jeasus is the Lamb of God) and the cross (he bore the cross for our sins).  Just look at their little faces, innocent just like Jesus.

Thanks so much for stopping by :)

Peace, Love & Decorate
