Play Time

I'm taking a break from my Easter decorating to visit with you for a few minutes.  First and foremost, I want to extend a big Thank You to all of you that stopped by to visit on Note Card Party day.  It was so much fun to meet so many new people and I'm slowly making my way to your blogs.  If you didn't get a chance to participate this time, there will be another one next month so you may want to check it out at Vee's blog.

If you've been around here for very long, you know that I have a love for vintage children's books.  Most of them are in that secret hiding place in the guest room.  However, when I was assembling a little Easter vignette today I decided to bring one of the books out of hiding.

It seemed to be the thing that was needed to pull the vignette together.  I remember having this book as a child.  It has the sweetest pictures. 

While out thrifting one day I found this cube shaped display case.  It was a natural wood color.  Hubby took it all apart and I spray painted the wood white.  Hubby put it all back together (I don't care for that part :) and voila another place to play. 

Speaking of playing, I hope you find some time for play this weekend.


  1. What delightful little Easter critters you have there. Is the rabbit handmade? He looks fabulous and the little duck is so perky and cute. I love it when you do these vignettes because it takes me back to childhood and my wonderful books and toys.

  2. Oh pretty! Such springtime charm! Spring Blessings ♥ Teri
