Peter Cotton Came to Our House: Easter Decorations

One of my most favorite hobbies is decorating for the different holidays. As a kid I always wanted to be a teacher. One of the main reasons I wanted to be a teacher was to change bulletin boards. Isn't that funny! I thought that would have been awesome to decorate the classroom for different holidays. I guess it is fitting because I love pulling out my decorations from the last year and putting them up around the house. For some reason when I pull out my Easter/Spring Bin I am extra happy. I know that when I pull that bin out it is going to get warmer, brighter, and that it is going to be spring. YIPPEE!!

My newest additions: Boy & Girl Bunnies! I think I have mentioned before that last spring I went to a clearance sale at local store that has adorable decorations. Well at that sale I found these two paper mache (not sure if that is spelled right) bunnies. When I first saw them at 85% off I wondered why they were at this sale. Most of the sale items needed a little touch up (chipped paint, bent wires, missing pieces). I posted about some Christmas decorations from this sale HERE. Anyways I could not figure out why these bunnies were in the sale...until I picked them up. Both of their legs fell out of their bodies. I was a little embarrassed at the sale because the legs fell on the floor. Of course my mind started churning and I thought all they needed was a little super glue. Thank God for my glue gun. Long story short...I bought the bunnies that were once $85 each for $7.50 each with an additional 50% off so I got them both for $7.50! Not too bad! Their legs are completely fixed and no one would ever know they were discarded for being damaged. Aren't they adorable!

Happy Easter and Happy Spring!
