A 25 cent box of happiness, a winner and a Easter Parade!

I spent twenty-five cents at a recent estate sale.  
Meant to be used as Christmas ornaments, I thought with a little makeover, I could turn one of them into a Easter rabbit...maybe something Magpie Ethel might even approve of!
Emma was busy celebrating her best friend's birthday and Josie was being camera shy after swim lessons this evening, so tonight's winner of my Kim K. Easter give-away is Donna from (Donna's Lavender Nest). Congratulations, Donna.
Send me your postal address and I'll get your goodies in the mail right away.  For everyone else, I love giving away my creations as much as I enjoy making, them so you can plan on additional Kim K. give-away opportunities in the future.  
I thought you'd like to see the Easter parade happening in certain parts of the house right now.
Vintage dessert picks all cozy together in a nutcup basket.
A few Gurley candles file into place for their spot in the parade.
Momma duck pulls along her baby chick to get a better view.
Pom pom and needled felted creations by Viv's Whimsy also line up.
The rabbit pin cushion is a favorite parade entry from Elizabeth's  Dime Store Chic.
The rabbit on a the tricycle is glad to be participating in this year's parade. He was an estate sale rescue last summer.
Aren't they a rather colorful bunch of entries in this year's parade? This isn't even everything. I told you that my holiday tubs have been multiplying like rabbits!
