Hippity Hoppity….

Sometimes a little whim has me chasing rabbits…

…or bunny ears…specifically felted bunny ears….

…with wires in them so they can bend!

…and might as well make a hat to stick them in….

…and don't forget to hand sew some vintage bias tape around the edges so you can tie it on to someone's head…and add some vintage pom pom balls too!

Easter's on its way you know….

…and he could sit on a glass jar filled with chocolate eggs covered in pretty pastel foiled wrappers! {or jelly beans!}

But don't buy them just yet because you know you'll eat too many of them…

Those little pom poms made from tulle would sure make a sweet bunny tail…

Another one of the dollies thought she should have a chance to have her picture taken in the new hat as well. Have you ever noticed the tendency in curly-haired folks to stir the pot of life just a tad more than straight-hair folks do? That's why I religiously take a flat iron to my curly hair…it improves your personality. Seriously.

Since this little hat I made reminded me of this Ralphie scene from A Christmas Story…

I'll leave you with one last picture of a "Ralphie" version of my new hat!

Just being silly today.

But also wanted to share the scrumptious ground cover phlox that is showing off in my flower beds right now. Wish it would bloom all summer, but it doesn't….such a hardy perennial to plant that will naturally spread over the years.  

Hope you're finding some time for silly too. It's important too you know!

Xo, Sue

p.s. AND speaking of time, And of PS {PINK SATURDAY} I'm linking to my fellow Duke Blue Devil's fan, Miss Beverly at How Sweet the Sound to play in her weekly Saturday event! Saturday's are typically not a good day for me to play on the computer so it's fun to HIPPITY HOP back aboard for today!

    Sue, Sue, Sue — you tickled me pink. Your Ralphie has me laughing out loud lol — Silliness is next to Godliness if the meaning is joyful! So stay silly sue. Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a comment. Like the way your mind works. I can just imagine this is not what you set out to do or was it? did you find Chrismas Story and wanted the picture of Ralphie and it reminded you of the glasses, so you put some on or did you remember the glasses and knew the outcome; either way brilliant my dear. Kudos PS Terri http://www.morningdewdrops.typepad.com

    Happy Pink Saturday, my dear friend. I am extra extra happy to have you with us today. I know you are a girl with a pink heart. And, a Duke Blue heart, too. Now, if only that wrong shade of blue team would loose. Oops! I guess that makes me a terrible person.
    Sue, no one but you would come up with such a fun idea. And, then to create a Ralphie! I love it.
    And, I love the phlox. My husband and I were just discussing that we should plant some because we always enjoy seeing it in Spring.

    You WERE getting silly!! Good thing, once again, your kids are older, not only would your boots embarrass them, the doll heads rolling around the garden would have terrified them!!! LOL!! Fun post!

  9. You are a hoot, Sue! Those dear little doll heads looked quite spiffy in their Easter finery : ). Yes, yes, loving the phlox right now. It’s coating yards all over town here too. Mmmm, love the colors. Thanks for the little Easter preview : )!

    Words have a magical power. They can bring either the greatest happiness or deepest despair; can transfer knowledge from teacher to students words enable the orator to sway his audience and dictate its decisions .Words are capable of arousing the strongest emotions and prompting all man’s actions , Do not ridicule the use of words in psychotherapy.
