wanted to share this 'scape on my island

Hi y'all! Isn't this sweet bunny just adorable? I got him recently while thrifting. I often use bunnies all the way through the summer ...they're not just for Easter! ;o)

I put him on a cake plate w/ a small lamp & some dried mini-carnations. And isn't the lampshade pretty? It's just an el-cheapo shade gussied up w/ a scrap of lace, pinned on w/ a cameo pin. One day soon , I will do a post on my cameo pins...I scored a huge lot of them on eBay several years ago for $15!


Have a good weekend everybody....we are do for some much needed rain but I hope it holds off until after we get back from McKinney trade days .

And I love that cameo pin on the lace, too, Cami. Nice 'scoape! Got interrupted for a minute. The phone rang and distracted me! LOL!

What a great way to use a cameo. I have some that are just hidden away in a drawer. You've inspired me to get them out and use them in a new and different way!

Hey Cami!
Girl, the bunny is so cute, but I almost missed him... while drooling over that lamp that you dolled up with the Cameo pin! LOL! I love that idea....don't be surprised if you see that idea on one of my lamps. I just love it! I have a Cameo necklace that hangs from my bedroom lamp, but I would have never thought of pinning a brooch to a lamp shade...You are good girl. Everything looks so pretty! You are always an inspiration....
I Hope you have a great weekend and I can't wait to see your finds.
Big Hug,
Queenie~
