Invasion of bunnies

Invasion of Bunnies?  Well, kind of.  I decided that I am going to start my Easter decorating early and I thought that the chippy white mantel would be a great place to start.

I just love the pretty pastel colors that Spring and Easter bring (not to mention warmer weather).  I love to collect smaller size  bunnies in all shapes and sizes.  The smaller sizes work well to set in any space such as shelves, on dishes, table settings, baskets and well just about anywhere you want a touch of bunnies!

I would like to also thank everyone for your wonderful comments that I have been recieving.
It really means alot to me.  I am hoping to figure out how to add a reply button.  I am always fearful of tinkering around and then loose my blog or worse... you as a friend!  So if you have any questions, I will reply in another comment.

I HOPE YOU ENJOY MY LITTLE TOUCH OF EASTER BUNNIES!

I love this Easter banner that I had purchased last year from the Pottery Barn on clearance!   Score!!!!  For $12.00  











I had some dried branches that I added to a large ironstone pitcher and then added my mercury colored eggs that I had purchased on clearance sale last year at Pottery Barn.  Love a great bargain!










Here is a better picture of my favorite old quilt.  It has beautiful colors and quilting.  I had purchased it a few years ago at an antique show in Illinois while in Bishop Hill.  Please disregard that   black cord.  It has been so cold here in Wisconsin that we have used space heaters to help with sky rocketing costs of fuel.  So I see now that It should of been cropped out of picture.








See the lettering on this banner?  I think you could easily make one like this.  Burlap material and white material,  thick twine, paint and stencils and hot glue should be all you need to do this project.
