EASTER EGG HOLDER

Here is a fun Easter project that cost me a whole 50 cents.
 I was at a tea room that also had some antique booths in it and you could kind of browse around while you were waiting for your lunch.  They had a table in the very back that was just piled with stuff that had no price tags on it and mostly looked like trash.  The owner said one of her booth owners had a relative who had moved into a nursing home and this was all just some leftover stuff that she brought in.  It was all going away in a couple of days and I could just make an offer on anything I wanted.  I found a few items, including this little brass rabbit egg holder and paid her a quarter for it.
I cleaned it up and gave it a shot of silver spray paint.  Then I spray painted the top of an outdoor porchlight that I picked up at our Habitat for Humanity, last year also for a quarter.  I love those old porch lights, they have a million parts and pieces and if you look at them long enough, you can see a lot of projects in one little light.
 Then I just put them both together, stuck some faux flowers in that cute rabbits paws, put a beautiful beaded egg on top and snapped a few pictures for you.
 He's kind of shiny, and hard to get a good picture of, but then so are 2 quarters.
 Enjoy your day and keep your eye out for some of those old porch lights!

  5. It's not free, but it is close. The cuteness factor is beyond a ten and the egg is perfect for it. Will you show all the Easter things in a vignette?

  10. Love that bunny gig. And he was just holding out his hands waiting for someone to give him a bouquet. I am wondering why we are assuming that rabbit is a 'he'....
