Feeling Crafty

Last night I was inspired!  I had a great idea and had to get started right away.  I remembered that I had some really nice shiny votives that would make great spring/Easter baskets.  Last year I made something similar with terra cotta pots.  This year I wanted more bling.

I attached vintage pins/earrings and used wood letter pieces from the game Boggle.  A few of the rabbits were vintage but a few were just cute.  I collect these fillers all year long waiting for when that inspiration hits.

In my space at the Carriage House, I have a yellow end table for sale.  (Yellow seems to be the "in"color right now as it was shown in Country Living magazine.)  The votives look so cute on top of the yellow table.  Three of them are sitting on top of a small vintage glass tray.  They really are cute!

Happy treasure hunting!
