Toadstool Redo

I've still got toad stools on my mind. I picked up a little wooden mushroom at the thrift store last week.I thought it would be cute painted. And then of course, I got obsessed and had to make a little twig pergola.
And a little bottle cap table and umbrella. I used acorns for little seats and the light over the front door.
I had the 2 little bunnies already, but I had to change their little clothes.
I had more fun taking photos of this little scene outside. It was definitely something I didn't need to do. But it sure was fun! Here's the before(I think it was an incense burner)
Here's the after. I wish my real house was that easy to redo!
We got to see a private collection of antique cars over the weekend. There were over 100 restored cars in this collection. Pretty nice-especially that woody!
I'm joining Sue for Rednesday. Check out lots of other fun reds. It has rained and cooled down here. I'm feeling like fall is in the air. I hope you all are feeling it too!

  14. Oh, how cute, Leslie! You spied the perfect red and white redo with that darling little mushroom! You are so clever, so creative! I remember when mushrooms were popular in the 70s and they are happily back in the parade again.
    I hope you have a great day, my sweet friend!
