BUNNIES, BUNNIES EVERYWHERE

I don't collect Rabbits, Bunnies or long eared anything....really I don't!
But when I went to decorate my cubbies for Easter I did find a few!

 
I don't collect Rabbits, but Sara did when she was a girl.
I found a storage tub full of them and unpacked some to use this Easter.  Some of these cuties are mine I must admit.  I have picked up a 'few' here and there for Easter!
Sara had lots of very tiny bunnies in her collection!
These shelves are some of mine and some of hers!
Who knew there were so many bunnies to collect! 
Really???


The top shelf holds some rabbits a basket and some Tales of Peter Rabbit books
The 'Pierre Lapin' book was mine from High School when I took French
This Vintage Rabbit was a Birthday gift to Sara from her Gymnastics Coach.  It is one of my favorites!
I bought these two 'chocolate' bunnies last year at an after Easter sale
I love the little bunny on the toadstool
it was a thrift shop find 
The lop eared bunny was one of Sara's
so life like and a favorite!
I love egg cups
These two with bunny slippers make me smile! 
So many bunnies and I love them all!
I found this framed cross stitch rabbit picture at the thrift for .35 can you believe someone gave this away!
I found these two large rabbits at a thrift for .80 each.  I combined them with a little chest I found for $1


This little vignette is on top of my desk and has rabbits of course
I found this plate at a yard sale
This was one of Sara's rabbits


I'm wishing you all a very Happy Easter and some sweet rabbits to add to your collection.


I'm going to link this post with two fun parties
A Few of My Favorite Things

Seasonal Sundays


Oh and Sara told me I could have all her Rabbits...so yes, now I do have a collection~




Hugs,
Linda

My favorite is the toad-stool bunnies' friend.

Ames said...

Well ya know...more than two is a collection. Hers, yours, you both have a collection of bunnies even if you are in denila! :)

I am not a bunny collector either but I am still on the look out for just the right bunny rabbit. We had dinner with friends night before last and she had the cutest salt-n-pepper egg and bunny shakers. She said she bought them from the dollar store a couple of years ago for $1.00. Now why don't I find these cuties?

I really love that little green bunny plate!Happy Easter Linda!~Ames

Enjoyed seeing your "collection" of bunnies. :D If I had to pick a favorite, it would the long eared one next to the one on the toadstool.
Hope you are enjoying your weekend.

Linda, cute bunnies here. I've a few hopping about at my place too. Funny how they just multiply.
Hoppy Easter! ~ Sarah

Ann in the UP said...

What an awesome collection for a person who doesn't collect bunnies! My favorite is the realistic looking lop-eared one, but there are a great many I'd love to have. I don't collect them either....

A Few Pennies said...

Well I had fun picking out which bunnies were my favorite--I truly love them all. That plate is adorable and looks like a Sadek plate! Have a wonderful Easter, Linda. Hugs, Patty

Lots of cuteness! The egg cups with the slippers are just too cute! I hope you are having a wonderful Easter!
Hugs,Diann :)

Shellbelle said...

That's quite a "non-collection" my dear! I see at the end of this post you finally fessed up to the truth! lol

I had to laugh when I saw the lop-earred bunny. When my daughter was in kindergarten we went to buy a bunny and when I chose the lop-earred on she exclaimed, "No mommy, not that one, his ears are broken!"

Happy Easter to you and yours!

C'est moi Claudette said...

Happy Easter Sunday to you too my friend.
Did you say "a few"? I think you have a sweet little collection Linda.
My fav is the little feet ones. Never seen those before, but then you American gals have so much more than us Canadian girls, lol.
Happy first Easter to little Tiger too.
Love me
xoxoxoxoxo

Sherry@Back2Vintage said...

I'll say you have a collection! WOW!!! I'm loving that plate with the bunny, but those egg cups with the bunny slippers are just adorable!!! Enjoy your first Easter with Tiger!!!

Susan said...

LOL... No, you don't collect rabbits at all. ;-) Okay, so maybe a lot of them did come from Sarah, but I think you may have a little bit of a collection going of your own, too, Linda. :-)
I hope you and your family are all having a wonderful Easter and enjoying the newest addition to your lovely family.

Hugs and Blessings,
Susan

dogsmom said...

Happy Easter! I love that they are small and all "play together" so nicely.
Maybe you did not have this many when you packed them away. Rabbits have a way of multiplying.
The egg cups make me smile too.
Cute little drawers and bunnies overflowing them!

FABBY'S LIVING said...

laurie @ bargain hunting said...

Oh Linda, you and your great bargains! I just bought those bunny plates in brown last year ~ full price!! I can't believe someone was selling one at a yard sale already. You (and Sara) have a great assortment of bunnies. I love the egg cups with the bunny slippers, and the one with the bunny looking over the edge. Your cubbies just make such a great display spot for every holiday. thank you for linking up. laurie

How fun that you have all of these!

I especially love the cute egg cups with the shoes, they are just adorable. There are so many bunnies out there that are just fun.

SavannahGranny said...

Girl! You lie or else there is an awful lot of bunny multiplying going on. Someone has been busy. They are all so cute. I love the Herend bunny. Thanks for visiting my garden.
Give that little a boy a hug for me. Like I had to ask. LOL Hugs, Ginger

Jenny said...

I think maybe the bunnies multiplied when you weren't looking because it looks like a splendid collection to me.

There were so many adorable ones...I think I might like the toadstool bunny the best!

Thanks for the smile!

Betsy said...
