I really do love seeing something,and,then, in a moment seeing that very same thing transformed into something else. I think it is the result of spending so many years with the " littlies." I still look at an empty loo roll as a funnel for a ship. Or, a Dairylea box as a wheel for a car!
I love the Greek yogurt from Lidl. It's creamy and soft. Perfect with fruit for breakfast. I washed the pots and put them in the cupboard. A bucket I thought. No further along the thought process than that.
I have blogged before about M.A.C.S here in Spain. It is a charitable organisation helping Cancer sufferers. It helps every nationality and denomination. Just about perfect. Obviously taking unwanted things is easy. Buying things even easier. But I got to thinking. The shops are a little bit utilitarian. A far cry from some of the ones I love in the U.K. Hannah's,near me at home in Devon is like an emporium of goodies and treats.
So, slowly over the last few weeks I have been thinking about Easter and M.A.C.S. Everyone loves the Spring and Easter celebrations. And they asked if I could help with the window display. Just up my crafty street.
Here we have it. First task was to enjoy the yogurt. And then as easy as 1,2,3 the container becomes a very good bucket for an Easter Egg Hunt or a home for a rabbit.
A spotty pillowcase from the very same shop.
Cut and stick.
There's always space for a little ribbon!
Pop in a rabbit and add a little Easter label tied with ribbon.
Not just one, but two little rabbits needing an Easter home.
And,add the other cute chicks and bunnies I have made, and there we have it. A little bit of Easter ready to be delivered tomorrow.
Have you spotted the prettiest Easter table cloth? I found it on the market here last week for 3 Euros.
It is simply beautiful and worth a blog post all of its own. I have come to wonder how many linens a girl needs. I have not come to a conclusion but know I have not reached my complete quota yet.
I think of many of my lovely blogger friends when I see pretty ones here on the markets. They would love them so much. A few with flowers, a few with leaves. I could go on.
The trouble is I would love to know the story behind each and every one.
These sweet little stitches and cut work. And there on the back I saw a clue when I was ironing it.
A name label. I am going to do some Googling!
