Mr. Rabbit...

Remember how I told you that I couldn't find my Easter decorations in the basement? Well, I still haven't found them :) But as I was browsing blogs, I kept noticing quite a few had a standing bunny that was part of their Spring decor. Then it hit, DUH!, I have my own standing bunny that I leave out all year long, Mr. Rabbit. So today I grabbed him from the corner and put him right back on the kitchen island and gave him his own little Easter basket.
I love cake stands, and these are just a few of my collection. Someday I want an open shelf all the way around my kitchen to display them all.
See his little sweater? I found it at Goodwill the other day for $1.99. I bought it because it caught my eye as a vintage handmade baby sweater. It was already a little felted when I bought it, but I washed it again and then I realized that it would look sweet on Mr. Rabbit. And it does! I just love it on him, it was the finishing touch that his outfit needed.
We often have homemade treats under these glass covers, but for now a nest with eggs will do, and it is way less fattening!
And the Easter basket he is holding...also from Goodwill, for $.99. It was that ugly rattan wicker color, but I loved the classic Easter basket shape of it and a coat of brown paint changed it. Again, I had no idea what I was going to do with it, until the whole Mr. Rabbit display came to mind :) Right now it just has some faux flowers in it, but maybe I will get around to making him some fabric carrots.
Mr. Rabbit from the back. Isn't he sweet? I bought him back in 2003 from Carol Walker, I'm not sure if she is still creating or not, but she did wonderful animal characters.

Have a wonderful Wednesday,
