B is for Bunny......

And E is for Easter! I spent a ridiculous amount of time decorating and crafting for Easter on Thursday, so I thought I'd share some of the results.
My favorite bunnies, which are on the bookcase, below.

I'm not done with it yet, and by the time I'm satisfied with it, most likely it will be time to pack it all away.

My favorite Easter decoration is this little picnic basket. It says on the bottom that it was Made In England in 1952. I bet there were some tasty cookies in there when it was new.

Two Made In Japan bunny girls.

The April angel on the left is mine from when I was a little girl.

The following things are on the green cabinet, like this Inarco bunny planter.

A spectacularly tacky combination of flocking and plastic on the bunny to the right.

A Relpo planter.

Doesn't the bunny pulling the cart look angry?

And here is the green cabinet all decked out. It probably looks silly to not pack away all of the red stuff, but that's just too much work to do for each holiday! I'm still fiddling with the birdcage, and if you enlarge, you should be able to see a bunch of chenille chicks perching inside, with the Mama observing them from above.
I think there's pink in every photo in this post, so I'm going to go ahead and link this to Pink Saturday over at How Sweet The Sound, where Beverly is the hostess!

"Spectacularly tacky" Hee-hee! Nothing describes a boomer's childhood better than that, eh?

Yes, your bunny does look angry... I think he wants to know who took the eggs out of his cart!

I love your little wreaths. Those are really cute- the basket,too.
Have a great day, Carol! ♥

Old Glory cottage is looking very festive for Easter. I think everything looks perfect just as it is. I love the runner on the bookshelf. I am on the hunt for one on my table. I enlarged the green cabinet and the red is fine. I love what you did. Good job.

Shirl said...

Hello Carol, Happy Pink Saturday! Love your pink post this week. How sweet all your vintage Easter Decorations are. Love your wreaths! Thank you so much for your sweet comment about my son. So glad you found that plate. I love your red post also. I read where you were trying to get stains out of a quilt. I have great luck with Dawn dish det. just put it right on the stain and let it set a day, then wash it. I use quilts for tablecovers and have gotten everything out from pasta sause to beef gravy.
Have a great week! Shirl
