Just YESTERDAY, I picked up two scrapbook pages at Ben Franklin in pastel plaids, and decided to frame them.
I had one clearance wood, green painted frame from Ben Franklin in a drawer and two gold Dollar Store frames that I spray painted heirloom white this morning.
I used the oval, tray basket I had purchased last weekend in the Twin Cities at Target.
I added my grassy candle wreath in the center, a ceramic bunny purchased locally at a consignment shop, a jar of malted Dollar Store Eggs, a glass vase with shredded brown paper grass and two chick, ceramic figurines and a "Happy Easter" sign from the Tattered Angel (also YESTERDAY), a potted grass, a plaid ribbon, and plastic pastel eggs from Kmart.
Does this qualify as a tartan parade entry?

What is really a coincidence is that my blog mentor (and first follower), Babs, (Upstairs, Downstairs blog) also had an Easter plaid post theme for the Tartan Parade. I didn't know about her post, and she didn't know about this one!
I hope you like it, Babs!
