bunny on a stick

There's a bunny on a stick party going on!
Check out Barb's blog for more bunny on a stick decor.

Here are my bunnies. I wanted to soften the bright green, so I wrapped them in strips of burlap.
I haven't decided if it's cute or if it looks like the bunnies just got home from the hospital!

This bunny is ready for his close up.

Below is a close up of the toile bunny fabric I used for the background of these photos.

sharp dressed man

Grant has picture day at school today.
I thought he looked so handsome this morning.

wine rack towel rack

I'm linked up to Transformation Thursday!

I had to show you this clever idea. My friend Babette has this pretty metal wine rack in her bathroom, but she uses it for her towels. I think it is just the cutest thing. Very elegant.

Here's the beautiful little vignette on the side of her bathtub.

Her bathroom is magnificent!
Thanks for sharing Babette!!

outdoor wednesday

Sweet Susan hosts Outdoor Wednesday.
To see other photos of the great outdoors go to:

This sweet bunny is wishing you an early Happy Easter.
He sits next to our rosemary plant.

Berries on our umbrella tree.

My husband took these pictures of what
I think is a hummingbird moth.
He liked our lantana.

When my husband showed me the photos
he said "maybe it will make the blog"
Yes honey, they made it on the blog. Great job!

A pot of succulents that sits on our patio.

Our flowering plum tree.

These flowers are growing in the Home Depot parking lot.
They are so pretty I just had to show you.

yellow trains & things

Southern Nevada Railroad Museum

train ride

Grant and I went on a train ride at the Southern Nevada Railroad Museum. Come along for the ride. All Aboard....

Isn't she a beauty!

It's a 45 minutes train ride. You have the choice of riding in an enclosed car or an open air car.

We chose open air. You end up with crazy wind swept hair afterwards, but it's totally worth it.
It was a lovely sunny day and we wanted to experience it.
There were wildflowers everywhere. Lots and lots of yellow ones as you can see in this picture, but also some purple, white and orange. I wish I could have taken some close up pictures, but it's difficult to do on a moving train.

Grant took this photo of a golf course that we passed.
That white line on the mountain is a huge man made waterfall.

The wheels are almost as tall as Grant!

A breezy day, but a really fun day.

Grant, next to an old, wooden, red caboose.
I thought the caboose would be an appropriate end to the post.
Tomorrow, I'll show a few more trains.

thrifty thursday

Last weekend I went to one of my favorite
antique malls and I spied this cute chair.
It definitely needs a make-over......

.....but I think she has pretty legs.

....... and it was only $5.00!!!!
I couldn't believe it.
I thought the chair must be falling apart, but it's very sturdy.
I must of checked the tag ten times before taking it up to the register.

These napkin rings are at Walgreen's, 2/$1.

They match my chargers perfectly.

Thanks to Leigh for hosting Thrifty Thursday.

outdoor wednesday

I want to thank the lovely Susan for hosting Outdoor Wednesday.
It's so fun!
I took these pictures in Boulder City on Saturday.
Boulder city is a charming little town outside of Las Vegas.

There were these huge bushes of rosemary in bloom.
They were gorgeous.
