I can't believe it's Easter already! Rewind please... I haven't done nearly as much around the house as I was hoping by this stage. Easter this year for us is also my Son Flynn's birthday (on Easter Saturday) so it will be toys and chocolate this weekend all round except for the girls' they want skateboards for Easter instead of chocolate (go figure)! I have succumbed to the idea but am now regretting it, what is Flynn going to think when the Easter bunny doesn't come to them?? I am going to have to come up with a story! I'm sure they won't miss out from grandparents though! What are your thoughts on presents instead of chocolate?
I haven't really done any Easter decorating around the house this year. Usually I have an Easter tree and eggs on sticks in pots plus more. I have been working a lot and haven't found time, also because we are going away for the long weekend so usually when we go away for the holidays I don't put as much effort in being it Christmas or Easter ... All poor excuses!
Anyway... When I was a little girl I used to collect rabbits (not real ones but I wish), I had quite a collection of the ceramic and stuffed variety. I have only kept a few favourites. I will still buy the odd rabbit when I see one I absolutely love and my Mum does for me too. When my twin daughters were born they got beautiful stuffed rabbits for their snuggle instead of a typical teddy bear and I have bought some very beautiful antique type ones over the years as well. Here a few 'new' bunnies I have had put away that my Mum bought for me last year. These are all that got put out this year as they were handy nearby, the rest is all still packed away in the garage.
I have added little eggs on pegs to my wreaths in the front entry, these wreaths are so versatile and I use them all year round, stay tuned for a little project I have in the future for these wreaths.
The bunny beside my bed, this is a special one and she has been living here for a quite a while already!

Sitting on my bedside is one of my favourite rabbits I have.
Also my 'new' lamp I bought not long ago.

This cute little ceramic guy is sweet and simple!
