Treasures From Horton's.....

 This is the little basket of pansies that I could not resist on Saturday. I have it in the house for now.
 Here's a wee bluebird and some bias tape ribbons. Plus they bag it in nice brown brown bag that can be stamped for a later gift giving :):)
 I had to have this fake sprig of tulips also. I have them in a vase on the mantle...I am thinking Spring.
 This was the whole row of pansies in the green house section of Hortons. Soon they will have veggies and flowers and statuary in here. They also sell used windows and some very nice birdbaths.
This is the craft we made at the store to bring home, for free I might add. It is a peat pot , slap on some white paint, stamp a tissue paper with sayings , such as, bliss, bloom,spring, or happy Easter. Decoupage that on the pot, fill pot with grass, add an egg full of jelly beans. then make a banner stick to insert in the grass. My stick has a banner saying happy spring....I just didn't get it in the shot. These little peat pots are adorable. I am thinking of getting some to use as place makers for my next sister lunch. xoxo


  1. The sun was out for a short time on Sat and I wanted to run and find some, so pretty!

  2. Cute finds. Spring is coming susie!

  5. Awwwwww, look at those Pansies!!!!

    And your first pic, without size context, made me *see* Violets, at first. And I lovvvvvvve Violets. :-)

  6. The little peat pot/basket turned out darling...a group of them would be so sweet! It sounds like such a fun project. And the I love them, a sure sign spring is on the way! Lots of rain and gloom here!

  8. You sure had fun at Hortons. You are lucky to have that place there. I love the little make and take craft, too. It is starting to look like Spring there- xo Diana

  9. Looks like you had a fun trip. Those little pots will be perfect for your luncheon. Don't you just love the colorful pansies?

  10. You got there earlier than I did. I had a lot less tulips to choose from! I made one of those peat pots too. I was thinking about making more for easter. I thought it would be cute to put their name on the little banner. Maybe plant some grass in the pots.
