easter pooches & polka dot nails.

easter has become one of my favourite holidays, mainly for everything that makes it such a pretty celebration; pastels, spring flowers, sunshine and all the bunnies & chicks-it's almost too much for me to handle. of course time with family and friends to stuff our faces is always the best part of any holiday-- including all of our pooches. usually when my family gets together, there are at least 4 dogs, sometimes 5. and to make sure they feel like they are a part of the action, i try to bring a few props along.

this time, i wanted to make something myself, and when i saw these bunny ears on the martha stewart website, i knew they were going to be perfect. they were super easy to make, and cost about $3 a pair. i attempted a pair for both the cat and dog, but lennon went ape shit when i put them on him, so that ended right quick. i will probably bring the spare pair to paul's cousin's first birthday party this afternoon. 
maybe they will end up on the baby, maybe i will get them on paul's uncle jim when he is taking his nap. 
either way, it should be interesting.

if you want to whip up a pair yourself (i know it's kind of late, but they are honestly so easy, you could make them in 15 minutes), follow the instructions in the link above, and you'll be good to go. martha complicated the project a wee bit by adding a step where you apply fabric stiffner to regular felt, and allow it to dry for several hours. for an extra .50 cents, i purchased "stiffened" felt, and it worked like a charm. sorry martha, i'm your 'quick & easy' pretend apprentice. not all of us have countless hours and assistants to do our shit for us.
because the bunny ears took two shakes of a lamb's tail to make, i whipped up an easter mani that is simple and sweet. 
pastels + polka dots + matte coat = perfect easter nails. switch it up with stripes, a scalloped edge or glitter. 
 i hope you and your family have a beautiful holiday!
