Don't forget that the giveaway for the April Cornell linens ends today May 22nd so be sure to enter giveaway #3 here 

Here are a couple of my favorite things

Longaberger Baskets and Rabbits
I think this little guy is pretty elegant

Covered in pretty flowers he looks very Springy!
I like how he is sitting on the little pedistal
 So Cute!

 This is a small chive basket and was a Hostess Gift for having a Longerberger Home Party
It is stamped and signed by the maker in 1989
It has a leather loop and a hanger on the back
Here they are, two of my favorite things and they can be yours!
So here is the deal.  If you are a follower of my blog then you know I am having 6 giveaways counting down to my 60th Birthday on June 9th.  The last giveaway will be 'A Few Of My Favorite Things' and these are the first two going into the box!

Mimi said...

You are such a generous lady, Linda!

I think your bunny would just love to hop on over to my house -- I'm sure my bunnies would welcome him quite nicely.

Linda, those baskets are expensive! I know I had a lay-a-way with a friend who use to sell them and it took a long time to pay it off! But you have the loveliest of giveaways to count down to your birthday! Thanks for sharing with us!

What a lovely give-a-way. The bunny looks so sweet and Longaberger baskets are always so nice. But I thought you got presents on your birthday not gave them.
