I've had some time to play in the cottage and around the yard. Let's take a few peeks at my yard and entry.
I used a bunch of Windex to be able to take this photo. A dozen kids ring my doorbell every week so lots of fingerprints and faces against the glass. lol
I was trying to look serious when I was spring cleaning at my front door but I kept my tongue in my cheek while I was hanging...yet another bunny on my property and labeling our home...
Beagle Run Cottage (beagles hunt bunnies).
If I were to freshen the name of my blog it would be to this or
The West Nest.
Jack Beagle has the run of the place and the kids on my street find him out front (naughty boy) even more in Spring than we hear him barking in the back yard. I may have hubby help me put the name on wooden plaques for the front door and the back gate. This is just cardstock and scissors and the computer. I need to learn how to arch the lettering?? I am between this and putting my house numbers right there like so many are doing lately.
This is his Milkbone doggie toy from Big Lots. He loves getting new "babies" for Holidays. If you step out back and he's sunning himself he's gonna run over to ya with a lovey for you to throw and run around the yard with him for a few minutes. (If you give a beagle a lovey...that could be the next book in the give a mouse a cookie series.)
Back inside, I got this newest bunny for $3.99 at Ross and was gonna hang it on my mailbox but decided to hang it on my front door. I got out my green gingham wire edged ribbon (Ballard's clearance) and used it for the rigging. I love ribbon...what girl doesn't?? I could bathe in it!
Coming up the front walk..
Left at the front door. A hodge podge of blooms and a vintage Easter image.
Left inside the door. My newest bird house and a sweet birdie looking for seeds. I had to have this fabric remnant at Hancock fabric last month...Love at first sighting. I had no idea it would be perfect for this console top.
I would sooner live in a cottage and wonder at everything than live in a castle and wonder at nothing.

Here's my garden metal bucket that is probably an ash bucket (Vintage Thingy). I stuck the yellow stems and some hydrengea stems from Dollar Tree together. I lost a lot of tropical climate plants in the garden so I am fauxing it up until I can get it stocked back. $$$
Look what came in the mail ...
Speaking of Bunnies and my cottage, Carey from Chicory Nits sent me a gift!!
Carey, you delighted my heart!! Nate saw it all set up and loves them. The sweetest little taper candles and bunny holders ever.
Let's head out to some other places:
