Dough Riser and Bunny Image

Good Sunday morning! It's pouring down rain here.Hubby is making breakfast.I'm trying to decide if I want to go to grandmas this afternoon or have a lazy day around the house...Perfect day to light some candles,put soft pj's on,make some hot tea and get lost reading..but I enjoy sundays with my family too...Above is a old bunny image you can copy and use for your projects.I'm gonna try Lorna's transfer method and use him on some ditty bags hope they turn ou because I really like him...Wanted to share some pictures of the antique dough riser I bought last week at auction.It was painted badly a ugly color so had hubby refinish it for me back to original wood surface with light patina.We left the inside alone as it was original...

The stand is separate and can be left off depending on were I decide it's going...

I love how it turned out.It's pretty big and I have to rearrange to try to find a spot for it.I've been looking for one for awhile.I always get these ideas that I want things and then realize I have no room.I need a huge house for all my ideas but alas I'm stuck with the quaint but small cape cod cottage.I'm blessed with large open rooms just not enough of them to cram my junk umm I mean treasures in and have it look nice.So it's endless redocorating for me...There's a few days left to enter my spring giveaway just click on the pic at the top of the sidebar to go there.Hope you all have a wonderful relaxing sunday.Warm Blessings!~Amy

That's a great dough riser . . . definitely worth moving some things around for! Hubby did a great job refinishing it. Love the bunny graphic.

Hi Amy, love the dough riser!! I suffer from the same thing, buy something and then have to rearrange the entire house to find a spot for it. I need one of those English castles to fill up.8-)
Thanks for the bunny pic. I am going to try it on a pillow I think.
I wish we were getting rain, it is so dry here. Hope you are having a good day!!

I sure had a relaxing Sunday with family. I need a bigger house too to hold all my "treasures", but am thankful for my little home. I do like you and rearrange accordingly.
Oh and you must find a spot for the dough box:)
