This, my friends, is how a girl gets putzy looking for an Easter gift for Mom & Dad. I started out at Michaels the other day with a 50 percent off coupon, which I intended to use on adhesive. But I walked past these UNBELIEVABLY CUTE buckets at Michaels, and my eyes bugged out. What a perfect thing to store cards in! Or a perfect bucket for a plant to go in! So I decided I'd give the bucket to Mom & Dad for Easter with a plant in it. Fast forward, I ran to 4 places looking for a plant, to no avail. Even BACHMANS had nothing great. So for a last ditch effort, I ran to CUB FOODS, yes you heard me, the GROCERY store. They had these gorgeous Azalea trees there, freshly arrived and buds barely opened! SCORE! So I bring it home, and well, you know the vintage kick I've been on, right? Well I found this gorgeous paper out of the Crafty Secrets "Earthy" pack, and this great bird image in the wacky and wonderful booklet. And the rest is history.
