Hoppy Easter ... Every Bunny

Easter is in the air at our house!

I thought I'd show you a few easter vignettes that are sprinkled around our home!!
This little setting is on a vintage sewing machine in the foyer.
On top an ornate tray, nestled in a bed of crinkled pink grass, scattered about are ceramic eggs that our children painted when they were lil!

I think this one is my favorite this year!
I love this vintage looking paper mache bunny holding a newly hatched chick while brother chick waits patiently to see the new arrival!

I found him at Michaels....{wish I would have gotten one of each}

Don't you love the foiled eggs in the wire chicken basket along with the jadite hen on her nest! Hmmm.. those chocolate eggs keep disappearing!

This lil guy hopped in a few days ago....
I think he has been nibbeling too many cherries at night...
look how plump he is!

It's time to kick him out of the kitchen!
Shooo rolly polly bunny!

This pretty shelf hangs in the living room!
I love the contrast of the rose plates and easter bunnys and hand painted eggs!

I did these eggs many many years ago, when I was into country decor!
I still put them out....
they are so intricate and I loved painting them!

I was excited when I unpacked these eggs,
I forgot I did these pretties!
I painted these eons ago!
Back in the pen and ink days!
Do you think they are considered shabby chic now! :-)

She is from my dear friend Miss Duffy.
Thank you sweet Kasse... I love her!
Take a look at her hat and pretty bow,
this girl is ready to party!

This is precious rabbit is nick named the velvettine rabbit
because he is torn and tattered....very much loved after all these years!
This precious lil guy is a family heirloom!
He belonged to hubbys' dad when he was a youngin!
Yep he is a "real" vintage treasure!

I snuggeled this wonderful foiled egg next to him under the glass cloche!
This lil goody came from Kasse too!

Here is a peek at my precious grandaughters' first easter basket!
It's not totally filled yet... I have more goodies to put inside,
But I wanted to give you a peek!

I thought the pretty suitcase would be perfect to hold all her baby treasures!
{hospital bracelet, cards, foot prints etc....}
And we all agree,
a girl must have a fluffy "pink" bunny to cuddle with....
this one is ohhh sooo soft!

That cute lil shoe is made of resin....
I thought it was too cute!
Momma will eat the chocolates,
and when Miss Emma grows some hair she can keep her lil barrettes and ribbons in the shoe!
Plus gramma got her her first china tea set!
Beatrix Potters Peter rabbit of course!
{I buy all of our grandchildren a tea set! Yep even the boys}
The pencil bunny is her first easter piece of many more to come!
I also have a sweet lil shirt that has pastel flowers on it
and a rubber ducky that blinks different colors!
All nesteled in that crinkled pink paper grass!
I love that stuff!

And lastly I leave you with this picture!
It makes me smile!
{loook closely}

I am off to help the easter bunny wrap the baskets
and fill the oh so many plastic eggs for the egg hunt!


Happy Easter

God Bless you,
Hugz, Dolly
