Happy Easter Lamb!
Sweet Little Lamb...
Most of us remember the decals of sweet lambs and bunnies that decorated our cribs and highchairs. Every time I see them it brings back such lovely memories. New mothers in the hospital received gifts of flowers in cute containers shaped like lambs, storks, bassinettes or baby shoes. Whatever happened to the sweet nursery items we remember? When my daughter Missy was expecting our first granddaughter I decided to do a vintage nursery theme for her baby shower. I went to every thrift store and purchased vintage nursery planters to use as decorations and make fun arrangements for door prizes.
Like the hoarder I am...the little nursery containers have been sitting in a box for 15 years...Madi is 15 in June...waiting for something Pinteresting to come along. Last week I saw something so cute I just had to find a way to make it...a cute lamb planter turned Easter Parade Float.
This is the Pin...so cute I could hardly stand it!
It's the creation of Sandy of Sandy's Show and Tell
I was so happy to find this lamb in the box.
I made a pincushion-like filling with pink/white stripe fabric.
It makes room for a sweet bunny to ride amid thrift store Easter ornaments.

I think I may have another lamb upstairs in the Grandkids room...
the Easter Parade needs more than one float.
Happy Easter Crafting!
