To Mope Or Not To Mope

Trying to brighten up my day (and keep from doing the things I should be doing).  This white bisque rabbit came from Anthropologie.  I guess it is glazed inside to keep water from leaking out.  I also got a goose head.  Just loved these and the gerbera daisies. But, take a look at the paper basket.

I went to Hobby Lobby last week.  I  usually just go there to buy art supplies.  All the rest I consider stuff. I have more stuff than one should have, and am trying to give it away.  Nevertheless, I was amazed at all the cute things they have. They had these paper baskets in different shapes and sizes, and made in China of course.  They were so cute.  Grandma Great used to make paper bead necklaces with a string chain to entertain all the grandchildren. Guess that is what hooked me.  They looked like her necklaces. If you haven't been recently, I suggest you go.  I can't tell you how many things I wanted to buy. 


  1. Wow! That sure beats moping! I'm trying to get ride of stuff, too.

  2. I have not been there in a very long time. So tomorrow I will find my way there .

  3. Hobby Lobby is sensory overload for me. These baskets are so cute though - may have to dash in for a few. They would make very cute Easter Baskets. Thanks for sharing!

  4. Have never seen a Hobby Lobby...is it like Michael's?
    Cute things Donna:-)

    1. Kind of like Michael's Monique. It has the crafts, but much more decorative items too. Reproductions and furniture too. It is huge. The Michael's I have been to are kind of messy. Hobby Lobby is not. Take heed Michael's.

  5. Your basket reminds me of the braid rugs my grandmother used to make for us out of old clothes we grew out of. We each had one by our beds, made from our old cast offs.... I've never even heard of Hobby Lobby but it sounds like the kind of place I should definitely stay away from. LOL! We could certainly use one here in Monaco.

  6. I love the colorful basket....and the rabbit. I collect rabbits and like what I collect to be useful.
