What is Wrong with this Picture?

Do you remember playing the game,

‘What doesn’t belong?’

You look at all of the objects and pick out what doesn’t fit with the rest.

Well, if I promise to decorate this shelf later, can I show the ‘before’ pic today? (and you can pick out what doesn’t belong…even though I did just buy them and only pay 75 cents for BOTH! heehee)

I’ve been finding cute little baskets at the thrift store for a dime. (my fav is the green one, it still had it’s price tag on it….from long long ago)

The little owls tucks are from the Etsy store, Nina’s Attic.

And I ordered this cute little bunny from the Etsy store, Barn Hollow but didn’t get any ‘grass’ for the basket. Isn’t he CUTE!!!

I actually made ONE thing this Spring. I cut out a pocket from a pair of jeans I got at the thrift store (and washed first) and made 2 little bunnies to go inside.

And of course you can’t go wrong with any holiday decorating when you start with these sweet dollies that Pat makes at the Etsy store All is Bright. They are holding little eggs made by Nina’s Attic.

I’m joining Coastal Charm for Nifty Thrifty Tuesday and Brenda at the Cozy Little House for Tweak it Tuesday. (I promise to keep tweaking)

Also linking with A Sheltering Tree!

I can see lots of room for improvement and I have lots of ideas. But for some reason I have been stuck this Spring. Has that ever happened to you?

Well the elves are cute but slipped into the wrong time of year :) I've bought so many of the little basket fillers from Nina's Attic! I bought the owls for my girls for their Christmas tree :)

My eye went to those darling little bunnies in the jean pocket. So cute, Diane. I can't imagine what you'll do to improve your vignettes, but whatever it might be, don't forget to play. ;D

DearHelenHartman said...

So much cuteness. You should leave the elves up all year round - to remind you that Santa is always watching and Christmas is just around the corner.

craftyles said...

Diane, those little elves are adorable, whether they belong or not. What a deal! Your bunnies are all so cute, and the dolls are just precious. The bunnies in the jean pocket are adorable, you clever lady! laurie

sandy said...

OK I'm guessing the little elves don't belong! I'm kind of addicted to baskets myself but right now I'm picking up wire baskets! I love your little brown bunny! Have a great week!

Hi Diane!
Hmmmm....Could it be your Pixie's are the answer to your question??
I remember my sons watching Sesame Street and the song "One of these things is not like the other...".
They're cute as can be!
I love your pocket full of bunnies. They're just plain cute!

Thank you for your sweet comments on my blog. I always love it when you stop by.

Have a wonderful and Happy Easter, my sweet friend.
Blessings,
Carolynn xo

The French Hutch said...

I think the bunnies are adorable in the pocket. Maybe the little elves are lost and in the wrong place, or is it the three little owls. Oh who cares, I love them all.
Great vignettes. Oh sure I get stuck all the time.
Happy Spring and have a beautiful Easter.
