P is for Pea Green

I'm more than halfway done in my quest to organize my decorating and my blog.
It's "P" week!! Whoo Hoo!!

You saw my bird mantle last week. This week in honor of "P" week, I am going to show you my "Pea Green-Peter Cottontail" mantle.

This mantle is downstairs in the den/laundry area/craft area/junk pile.

This is the same concrete bunny you saw here. I moved the square wreath down and added the green tree/plant. I LOVE the pot that it is in.

More greenery in another one of those pots.

The top of the mantle has two empty frames with a metal flower inside, along with a green mirror I found at Fred's.

For Valentine's Day these rabbits sported red toile neckties. I changed them out to green to match the rest of the "Pea Green" mantle.
I had to tie the ribbon on because I removed some twisty raffia-daisy looking thing that was GLUED around their necks.
When I took it off it ripped some of the paper mache stuff off the rabbits.
Kind of like the woman with the velvet ribbon...anyone know that story?

"I to-o-o-o-o-ld you you'd be sor-r-r-r-r-r-r-y!"

(go read the story if that makes no sense to you!)
