Easter Fairy Garden

You have seen my concrete bunny before....but, she was filled with live plants out in the back yard.  
 Since it's a little early to plant any flowers outside,   I thought I would bring her in and make her a part of the Easter decor.    By the way,  she is pretty heavy...thank you H for bringing her in for me!

I wanted to do something other than just stick a plant in her basket.......and I love making fairy, the choice was pretty easy!

I filled the concrete basket with styrofoam,  topped  that with some grass,  stuck in a few carrots,  a rake,  a hoe,  a pink chick,  scattered some tiny Easter eggs,  put a fence around it and gently placed my fairy in the basket.   It took longer to gather up the supplies than it did to create my Easter fairy garden.

I found some more ribbon pillows at Stein  Mart over the week end.....only these were Easter pillows.

There is quite a bit of ribbon work on the pillows,  so I think the $17 price tag is a pretty good deal.

I hung an Easter wreath over the sofa.  
 This is one that you may remember seeing on the front door last had some succulents in it then.   This year,  I took out the succulents  and added some blue and white daisies in their place.  Since I left all the other flowers in place when I took out the succulents,  it was a quick refresh for my last years wreath.     I will use the succulents in another project that I have planned.

Did I mention that I bought two ribbon work pillows?

This little bunny looks very determined to get her flowers watered!

The fairy that sits on the box has a very important job......

She guards.......

the remote and switches that turn on the lights in the family room!     As you can see,  the box is not just another pretty decoration,  it has a very important use!

Think I'll get out the remote,  lay back in my recliner and watch the Food maybe  take a little nap!
