Spring Box...

On Tuesday a few friends and I made this fun spring box . We used wool for the rabbit patch on the top of the box. Then covered the box with two different cotton print fabrics. I like to line my boxes with pages from old books . But this time we painted the inside then antiqued it inside and out with brown shoe polish.The rabbit pattern is a freebie from Primitive Betty she is very generous to share her talents with all of us out in blog land. I'm waiting for the rain to stop so I can work in my yard, but I don't think that is going to happen today. I guess I'll spend the afternoon playing with Mckenna and Jaxon ( the cutest grandkids in the whole world) inside instead of outside. Hoping you day is free of rain. Nancy
