Multiplying Like Bunnies

Lynette over at Lynette’s L.A.M. blog is hosting an Easter Decor party. Lingering cool temperatures and nonstop work on a silent auction have almost let Easter slip up on me…but come on in….the bunnies are multiplying like…..well, like bunnies :)

Remember last year’s Pier One moss “bunny on a stick”? He’s hopped onto my spring wreath. He’s a versatile and compliant little bunny and sometimes hops from place to place as I need him :) .

The chest in the foyer, for me, is the essence of Easter. The Bradford pear trees are in full bloom here and the ground is covered in white again---this time in petals. The sage looking bunny with the big feet provides a bit of whimsy. The egg, a symbol of renewal, on the Arthur Court pedestal was a gift to me several years ago. I have since looked for more, but have never found one. The cross, which stays here year round, is at Easter a reminder of the Resurrection. Let’s go into the den. Caution: rabbits at play here :)

I am cursed with mantel issues—I have never (really, never) been pleased with the way it looks. Changing things around with a few of my favorite bunnies and some “faux” forysythia helps temporarily.

This is the hearth bunny. He likes this spot (luckily, because he weighs a ton :) and is not particular about his diet. He eats poinsettias at Christmas, ferns in the spring, and mums in the fall.

This little bunny, a Christmas gift, is making his debut this Easter. He is a McCarty bunny made by potters in Merigold MS. He still looks a little timid, but I’m sure he’ll be welcomed into the fold!

One more bunny to keep watch over the stargazer lilies---is there anything that smells better? For me, it’s a close call between these and gardenias.

Bunnies are running rampant in the kitchen too---one to watch over my morning tea kettle….

Smiling ones ones on the oven doors…

Crouching on the sideboard…..

Even a cute little girl bunny in her Easter frock to hand you some tulip soap in the powder room!

Thanks Lynette! I am joining Marty at A Stroll Thru Life for Tabletop Tuesday as well. If I don’t see you again…Have a happy and blessed Easter! Thanks for stopping by :)

  5. Love your bunnies and pretty vignettes. Great job on your wreath. I never did get mine made - maybe this week. I love the smell of stargazer lilies. Right now I am smelling the petunias I brought in for the night - time to put them back out in the sunshine.

  13. Wonderful Easter decor! You have some fabulous bunnies! My fav is the one in the kitchen watching over your teapot but love the way you described the one by your hearth and his diet! LOL! I enjoyed your vignette with the cross - always nice to have a reminder of the true reason for the season.

  16. I love all your bunnies - but I think if I were forced to pick an all time fave - I'd have to go with your foyer! That whole vignette was simply gorgeous!
    Your mantel is stunning - love the rich colored tone of the wood!

    Thanks for joining me in my Easter Decor Day and Happy Easter to you and yours!

  19. Und heute findet man verschiedene Schnitte wie thomas sabo onlineshop runde, Prinzessin, strahlend, Herz, Quadrat, Birne, Asscher und Smaragd. Es gibt viele weitere Kürzungen auf dem Markt angebote thomas sabo armketten verfügbar, aber Sie müssen bedenken, dass die Auswahl der Schnitt auf Ihre persönlichen Vorlieben und Geldbeutel abhängt. Aber einer der stetigen Verlobungsring Armband mit Anhänger Trends des Jahres 2010 ist die Asscher Diamanten geschnitten Verlobungsring. Und der Grund seiner Popularität ist, dass es eine thomas sabo armkette zeitlose nostalgischen Atmosphäre bietet, ohne sich altmodisch.
