I got my boxes labelled "SPRING" down from the attic and begin reacquainting myself with some old "friends". I hung this cute "Hop On In" sign on my backdoor for all my Backdoor Friends to see (and you know what they say about Backdoor Friends...they are the BEST!) Sitting beside the sign is my stuffed bunny from, I dare say, from my Easter Basket at least 45 years ago. Does anyone have any good ideas on how to clean this sweet little rabbit safely?
I'm really not so sure this mantle will stay the same. The bunnies just don't look right with the dark paint and Venice artwork. MAYBE I'll find something to put in place of this picture and I will like the look more.
The crystal deviled-egg server was in my cabinet and thought it made a good center piece for the kitchen table.
I have a thing for EXTRA tall bunnies and ones with very long legs...hehe! Since my home has a lot of red, gold, olive green....I'm just not satisfied with the look of the pastel bunnies. This is the OTHER mantle I have (it's a two sided fireplace). Any tips on how to incorporate Spring into a house with these colors? Are there too many bunnies up there....should I take one of the group of bunnies down?
Here's a simple little raffia bunny and the metal lamp beside her is filled with yellow eggs to match the gold wall.
The fun thing about not decorating for a while, is that when I opened the boxes it was like Christmas. I'd forgotten some of the cute things I had. This little bunny is iron and very heavy. I like the way he's stretched out and relaxed.
I got this cute patriotic bunny at a craft show during Desert Storm. I think his red pants make him fit right in on my kitchen window sill.
This metal bunny opens up to accomodate a candle so that the light shines through all the holes. The other bunny is ceramic and has such a great look on his little face. There are a couple of eggs peaking through the greenery but it looks like I need to "tweak" the arrangement a bit so you can see them. Thanks goodness for photographs...they help us to see our "mistakes" so we can correct them, right?
