Sunflowers and Bunnies

Who doesn't love sunflowers and bunnies.  I for one love both.  So I combined them together on my ledge by the front door.  I love this ledge in my entry way.  It is the perfect spot to add seasonal decor.  Please ignore the furniture in the background.  This is the formal living room and I haven't gotten it organized yet.  Right now it holds left over furniture that I haven't decided if they will stay.



Here are some close ups.  I had to block the sun that is coming in from the side panel by the door as there was too much of a glare.



I love my big lantern.  It was pure white when I bought it.  I antiqued it and painted the top with metallic bronze paint. Here is the before picture.




I don't know if I will wait until next month or the end of this month to decorate this area for fall.  I am so ready to start decorating.   I have a cute wheel barrow that I think will fit in this space nicely.
