R IS FOR RABBITS

I am joining Ms Jenny for Alphabe-Thursday and this week we are on the letter
R

R has many possibilities but I decide on Rabbits!
Shortly after Easter I kept finding these great Rabbits in the thrifts and I decided they would work for my letter R and for a tablescape!
I found this guy and his brother at a Thrift for 80 cents each
I thought they would be so cute for Easter but then they are also great for a Spring tablescape! 
Lots of little rabbits!
I started this tablescape with some new linens
Another present for my Birthday...April Cornell linens!
Yes I found these placemats and napkins at  TJ Maxx on clearance!
Hard to tell but they are a pale buttery yellow with dark green and beautiful blue design on them

I used a dark green plate I found for 99cents each but it was 1/2 price day so both for 99cents!  I then added a blue plate I found on clearance at Ross ($1 each) and the rabbit egg cups 79 cents each at a thrift
I used my cream handled silverware
Vintage green glass (you have seen these before)
I like how the rabbits add to the spring feel
Watching over you while you eat!
This cute little box has a rabbit among the pots
Tea is available if you wish
Flowered mismatched tea cups
I love these linens 
Don't forget to go here to enter my giveaway for a chance to 
win some of your own April Cornell linens
 Rabbits add a nice spring touch to a table
Have a seat breakfast is almost ready

I'm also joining in these fun parties
With the lovely Susan here at Between Naps on the Porch
Also Vintage Thingie Thursday with Suzanne at Colorado Lady

The drawing for the April Cornell linens is Saturday night so hurry and get your entries in.  We still have 3 more giveaways to go!

Always,
Linda

Hi Linda,
I am in love with your rabbit themed tablescape! Those little bunnies have a way of multiplying, so look out! They are so cute and the dinnerware you chose is so pretty. I would love to sit down to a table setting like yours.

Say hello to Charlie for me and the girls.

hugs
Sissie

Hi Linda!

Well, this is just one very sweet table! Oh those linens are so pretty! Great find on them! I really like the dark shade of green of the dinner plates and really love the shape of them. All the bunnies are just perfect. Great "garden-y" feel to them.

Very inviting! Now where are the boys going to eat? :)

Linda, I love your festive table with those most adorable bunnies!

I think this proves that bunnies can speak spring (or gardens) as much as the speak Easter. Love your color palette, too. A most attractive tablescape!

What cute bunnies...

I had rabbits as a kid, but they all ran away (well that's what my parents told me anyway). I have thousands of rabbits living on my land now and I love them, even when they get in the garage and make a mess!

Jenny said...

I am always excited to visit your link to see what fantastical table scape you are going to share with us!

This week is as fun and clever as always!

Your rabbits are charming...but somehow it is the way that you put this all together that makes the whole greater then the individual pieces!

I hope that made sense!

Thanks for participating in A-T and helping to make this such a fun and interesting meme!
