Our Welcoming Home!
by Jolene Hanig-Jones
It’s time for the bunny hop, or at least it is time to display your bunnies. I have collected my spring bunnies over several years. Like real bunnies, they are often featured in different areas of our home each year. Take a look at how I placed some of the bunnies around our home for Spring 2019!
It is finally spring! At least, it is if you look at the calendar. Outside on any given day, this March has looked more like winter. I can't wait to begin planting pansies, but that will have to wait until Mother Nature gives me the OK. Until then, I have been decorating indoors and have loved adding spring, whimsical pieces to our decor. Take a look.

Title: Violas and Azalea Blossoms, by Mother Nature. This lovely creation is brought to you by Mother Nature. I plant violas every spring, but the birds carry the seeds and plant them in various places around our home. These beautiful violas took root beneath the azalea plants and looked lovely among the fallen azalea blossoms. I love this display!
I think Mother Earth should be respected and celebrated every day. My mom has always been a recycler and master re-user. Glass, plastics, pop cans, newspapers are all returned or recycled, unless you can reuse them. She volunteers to help with church funeral dinners. Chinese take-out containers are perfect for packaging left-overs for families. Plastic bags are saved and given to the Farmers Market vendors. Wicker baskets have been given to me to up cycle as gift baskets and crafts. Thus, Mom has inspired me to use what I have when I am creating and recycle all things that are possible.
I had lots of fun this Earth Day planting this basket and chair that I up cycled. I was thrilled to find this chair at our local Goodwill Store for the "special price" of $3.49. I'm not sure why it was reduced. It has all four legs intact and didn't even wobble when I wiggled it. Granted the black was a little harsh, but that was an easy fix with a can of spray paint.
