I may have mixed feelings about Easter (and Christianity in general), but I sure do enjoy all the spring-themed merchandise that is proliferating in the stores these days. They're bright and colorful, and full of cute animals, even bugs.
These items were stealthily photographed* at Cost Plus World Market yesterday. They are made from thick, brightly colored felt.
flowers and butterflies. See how thick the felt is?
And look...they have some of those little bug-shaped wood pieces on them. Cue the It's a Small World music.
*Cost Plus doesn't like people to take pictures of stuff inside their stores. I asked them permission once, and they said no. This was before I got my current camera, which is very small and can be used very discretely, and also before everybody and their brother had a cellphone with a camera in it. So as far as I know, all sorts of people are taking pictures of all the cool stuff they have there. But I still feel like I've "gotten away with something" when I do it.
