~Did Someone Say Spring??~

With the weather starting to turn warm and all the beautiful pictures that I have seen lately of homeowner's spring decor, I decided to make a seasonal display of my own.

I decided that the best place for my spring display would be the dining room table.  I always have a long rectangular wooden box on the table.  It seemed so empty and sad.  Not any more...


I had purchased the two rabbits made from old quilts a couple of years ago, but never really found a place to use them.  After a quick trip to Hobby Lobby and to a local primitive store, I knew exactly what to do with my lonely rabbits.
 
I started by filling the box with springtime greenery.  I chose this particular greening because it reminded me of clovers and it had little purple buds on it.
 
I then placed five fabric carrots and the two rabbits in the greenery.  I wanted to the rabbits to look as if they were hiding from that pesky farmer.


I then placed the "Carrots 4 Sale" sign in front of the box.
 



I am really happy with the way it turned out!  We would love to hear about and see some of your springtime displays.  Visit A Primitive Place on Facebook and share them with us.


Thank you for visiting A Primitive Place.  We appreciate you stopping by and hope that you will continue to come back as often as you can.  Always remember, "Springtime is the land awakening.  The March winds are the morning yawn."

All My Best, 
~Dan~
