Springy Centerpiece

Hello, Dear Ones! If you visit me often, you may remember my painted wire cloche and new table runner that I made! But I've had to make a change here on the dining room table.

You see, the Bunny knocked over the cloche, ran away and messed up the top of the table so I had no choice but to change it! I sprung to action. I'm like that, ya know! :)


What do you think? Will this work? Nothing says Springness like flowers and Bunny Foo Foos, does it?


This is what I've done to my table top. Everything is sitting on my newly made runner too. I'm milking telling you about my newly made runner! :)


First of all, I'd like to show you this little piece by Fitz and Floyd. Is this not the cutest little thing ever? Bunny Foo Foo keeping watch, little hoot owl looking wise and one little Bunny Foo Foo trying to eat those Easter eggs without me seeing him. Little stinker! :)

Then I poked down this cute little couple - a suger Bunny Foo Foo and a creamer Bunny Foo Foo. I do believe they are twins, don't you?

Now to the centerpiece! More Foo Foos and flowers...

What's that I see hiding on the second tier?

Let's get a little closer...

Aha! There's that little cutie hiding in the flowers. Thank you Reba for your magnificent snaps! :) I'm loving my new camera, Reba. I guess I'm gonna milk her too for all she's worth!

Okay, I took three pink cake stands - one large, one medium and one tiny and stacked them up. I went to my plastic bin of faux flowers and started poking some in between the tiers. I poked in a bunch of faux grapes too. Love the soft colors of the grapes ~ green with a little touch of pink. I know, I get carried away sometimes. I just couldn't stop and kept poking in the flowers!

I'm proud of myself...I didn't buy anything new this spring and just used what I had to decorate. I do believe my little Bunny Foo Foos are so proud to be used over and over again.
I think I like this centerpiece and believe I have some Springness on my tabletop ~ for the next week anyway! :) If I can just get my hands on the escaped Bunny Foo Foo, I'm going to ring his little neck! :)



Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

You Raise Me Up
When I am down and, oh my soul, so weary;
When troubles come and my heart burdened be;
Then, I am still and wait here in the silence,
Until you come and sit awhile with me.
You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up? To more than I can be.
You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up? To more than I can be.
There is no life ? no life without its hunger;
Each restless heart beats so imperfectly;
But when you come and I am filled with wonder,
Sometimes, I think I glimpse eternity.
You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up? To more than I can be.
You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up? To more than I can be.

  49. Hi Shelia
    Thanks for coming by.:-)
    The higher the F-stop number the clearer/deeper the depth of field.
    F-36 the background will be clearer, F-4 the background will be softer.
    Hope this helps.

  55. Hello sweet Shelia,
    So what happened to the cloche? Have you put it in another room, perhaps? I love what you have done with the three cake plates and explosion of flowers, it is very pretty.
    I know you love music, I hope you took a little listen to my music video, it is so beautiful!
    I had forgotten about your lovely piano in a photo you showed earlier this year, if I had remembered I might have asked to borrow it. The photo, that is, not the piano!
    Have a beautiful day, my friend,
    Love and hugs, Cindy
