I tend to get a lot of inspiration from the internet and of course Pinterest but then I like to put my own spin on things. One such item was this adorable bunny silhouette sign, just in time for Spring and Easter.
It would make a wonderful gift and a great display and addition to your spring and Easter decor. This sign is made from pine board that measures 9 x 12 x .75 , painted white then painted purple after the bunny silhouette stencil was applied.
A burlap bow and pom-pom complete the look. This bunny silhouette wall art is now ready to display – to hang on the wall I added a sawtooth picture hanger to the back.
You can buy a kit to make your own for $10.00 plus shipping. Contact me @ firstname.lastname@example.org to place your order.
Included in kit:
1 – 9x 12x .75 pine blank board

For the most part I’ve been trying to stay out of the thrift stores because I am busy purging and donating stuff to make way for auction and yard sale season AND I find the prices this time of the year a bit too steep.
It is also hit and miss at both thrift stores and auctions as everyone is on their own schedule when it comes time to purge. However, over the last few days the temperature has been steadily climbing and I feel that I am starting to feel that Spring Fever in my thrift hunting/auction going bones.
It is also very hard to resist doing a once around the thrift store when you are there anyway dropping off donations – so I admit I give in and take a look to see if there’s anything that catches my eye.
I did manage to find a few thrifty items, some are for me and some I will sell. I didn’t find all of this on the same day…ahem, I made a few trips to the donation centre.
I simply couldn’t resist this little pair of S&P shakers (marked 2112 Japan). I can’t narrow down what I love about them more, the vibrant colors or the kilts, I just know they made me smile so, of course, they came home with me.

I recently posted a challenge to do some Easter Decorating for under $8.00 CDN- I referred to the Youtube challenge I followed that was started by Hillary from My So Called Home.
You can see that post here.
My vignette coast me $1.50 as I only purchased the three Vintage bunny banks at $0.50 a piece. I scoured the house for items that I already had and came up with a few varieties but this first one is my favorite.Here is proof on my price … I remember these fuzzy bunny banks from when I was young.
AND a closer look at what is in the picture.
Here are the other vignette’s I tried that weren’t quite right…lol Continue reading Result from the Eight Dollar Easter Decorating Challenge
I’ve recently enjoyed viewing the $5.00 Goodwill Challenge Spring Decorating 2017 that was started by Hillary from My So Called Home. Here is the playlist to all the YouTubers that took her challenge- check them out, you might get inspired. The playlist from Hillary – My so called home http://bit.ly/2miYBsi
Well that $5.00 US is equal to about $6.69 CDN dollars 😦 and lets face it thrift finds are more plentiful and cheaper in the USA. However, having said that – I am definitely up for the challenge and I’ll be keeping my budget under $10.00 – let’s say at a healthy $8.00
I am putting out the challenge on this blog, my Facebook page and my instagram page hashtag #EasterDecoratingChallenge.
Here is a cute idea from bellalimento

Welcome to Vintage and Thrift Hunting – this is Post #2
Quick recap :Since one of my favorite pastimes is vintage and thrift hunting, I’ve decided to start a regular feature here on the blog about the fun and interesting things I find whether I am scouring thrift stores, garage or tag sales, antique markets or estate auctions.
I do sell some of the items I buy, sometimes I repurpose them, mostly I don’t because I like them just the way they are. If the item is for sale, I will mark it available and if it’s not for sale you will see these initials NFS. I will put a link below to my selling site if you are interested.
The weather was so nice on the weekend a road trip was in order. These cheese crocks were sold as a set in a very unorganized thrift store (I never judge a book by its cover, the best deals are the ones you dig for). I decided to sell the two smaller ones and keep the larger one for my collection. They were in excellent condition.
My next find were these nine puzzle blocks that turned into four different puzzles. Very economical as well at just $1.00. I’m displaying the bunny side for Easter. (NFS)
When I saw these arch shaped frames (there are two), there was just something about them and when I flipped them over there was a write up about the artist, Michael Kulicke. Turns out these frames are collectible. I haven’t decided whether or not to sell them. If I find the perfect spot for them, I will keep them but I guess I can’t keep everything…lol
