Bunnies & Bluebonnets

Our son and his family live in San Antonio,  Texas & my favorite time to visit them is in the spring when the fields of Bluebonnets are in full bloom.     We are planning a visit in a few weeks & I am so excited....I can't wait to see them and the Bluebonnets too! 

Our upcoming visit gave me the inspiration for a spring vignette I created for the entry.......

My sweet ceramic bunnies have not made an appearance in several years....somehow they got packed away in the wrong tote and have been lost for a long time.    I was thrilled when I came across them the other day in a Christmas did they get in there????    Yep,   I am just now finishing up packing away all of the Christmas! 

I used used plenty of faux Bluebonnets in the floral design I created to go with my newly found bunnies

Along with other spring flowers,   I filled my pink chicken wire basket with Easter eggs....

I have about every color of fabric carrots known to man,   but I didn't have any blue and white ones.    Just before I gave up and was making plans to make some,    I found these at Home Goods the other day.   They were $6 for a bunch of 3 carrots.....I'm not sure I could make them for that and my time is worth something!  

Here's some of the fabric carrots I made a few years ago when all I could find in the stores were orange carrots

I am pleased with the way my picture and floral design kind of go together.....

H recently put new doors on the storage cabinet under this big mirror.    If you missed that post with all the details,   here's a link to it......


The skies are blue....the sun is shining.....the wind is calm.....and we're expecting a high of 70 degrees here in Eastern New Mexico today!    It's going to be a great day!


  1. Beautiful vignette! You are so crafty and creative and have an eye for style!

  2. Beautiful vignette, Penny. Spring has arrived at your home.

  3. I love the bunnies and bluebonnets arrangement. I have some faux bluebonnets so I’ll have to borrow your idea. Thanks so much.

  4. Oh my gosh Penny! This is gorgeous! My bestie is from Texas and the bluebonnets are just so beautiful. I spend way more time at Home Goods then I should but I haven't seen the blue carrots. I'm going to a different one tomorrow now since you've inspired me to try something similar for her birthday this month. Thanks so much for the inspiration!

  5. I just love your bunny and bluebonnet decor penny - these colors are among my fave!
    CONGRATS for being one of our Featured Friends at Friendship Friday at Create With Joy this week.
    I always look forward to seeing what you are up to! :-)

  6. It's all so perfectly gorgeous Penny.
    Thank you for sharing your bunnies and bluebonnets entry at Create, Bake, Grow & Gather this week. I'm delighted to be featuring your spring decor at tonight's party and pinning too.
    Hope you have a great time visiting your son and family.

  7. Penny,
    I wish we had a Home Goods by us...we are going to be getting a Hobby Lobby just 5 minutes down the road!!That could be quite dangerous though!! LOL!! I love those fabric carrots...I may have to make some!!


It makes my day to hear from my friends!
