Last summer just after Easter I purchased a dozen little straw hats just the size for dolls from a sale rack. They were just drab straw colored so I decided to paint them. Then to go a step further I hot glued them onto skewers and a few old pieces of throw away wood scraps I had around to make colorful plant stakes. I stuck them into the ground where my new rose bushes were just taking off. They added such pretty colors and lots of conversation interest for my friends and neighbors! Look everyone! Blooming Bonnets!
