I'm Back!

I have an excuse for not keeping up with the blog thing....been busy with Easter Swaps, Easter crafts and it is also that time of the year that the school board gets project crazy. I had a Black History project, Science Fair project and Famous Woman project. 2 of the 3 are done, and I might add that "I" won 2nd place in the science fair. And I do mean "I" since my sons only input into the project was running around the room telling me what to type, then I had to print it all out and arrange it all according to the County Code on the tri-fold backboard. I always save the previous years so I have a sample to work from, so as soon as I finished this years, we went outside and had a bonfire with it, how fun to watch it burn!! I dont know if I will be able to burn this years since it has a pretty red ribbon on it. Anyway, now for the give-away...a little basket purse filled with goodies, a bunny balloon ornament that I made, and a few other surprises not shown. Just leave a comment. I will pick the winner on Monday.


Sorry, but this little duck is MINE!! I have been trying to find the bunny like this for years, except it is made out of a clorox bottle. Last year I bid on a bunny one, but I would only go up to $30 and it went beyond that. Well this year I won the little duck off ebay and a few days ago I won the kits to make a bunny and a duck with the clorox bottles. It looks kinda complicated, but I remember making them as a kid, so hopefully it will come back to me. I just dont like reading instructions!!!!

I remember those clorox bottle bunny baskets, my mom bought them at Hughes back in the 70's they were made of a clorox bottle and the candy and fake green grass was placed in what would be the bunny rabbits belly, the bunny was basically in a sitting up position right. Made with thin colored plastic that was poked into the clorox bottle and cut short. Do you happen to have a picture of any you have seen on ebay or from your childhood? I havent seen one of those for over 39 years. Thanks Mike
