The simple pleasures of home shine brighter
when the spirit of God intertwines our hearts
with His gentle Joy.

Bunnies Abound!

Whew! Seems I just completed my Spring cleaning. . .and while I rid our home of dust bunnies~ these Bunnies Abound On Crooked Creek!!!

I adore bunnies!

Dear Ones,
Bunnies multiply continually On Crooked Creek.

This attached pair of bunnies (Goebel, W. Germany) was my first set from our travels in Europe. The white bunnies set the theme for the others that seem to arrive with each new season of Spring!

These little cream bunnies were a bargain find at Memories of Home Spring Open House a few years ago. Our Maurice, being born under the rabbit hutch, has many rabbit antics. Often she poses similar to that of the reclining rabbit.

Made of cast iron and purchased in Lebanon, Missouri @ Heartland Antique Mall during our Annual Trout Fishing Trip to Bennett Spring, these bunnies are my heaviest set. I chose to leave the jute bows tied around their necks adding to their charm and quaintness!

A Flea Market find,this darling stopped me fast in my tracks with his life~life eyes and his little pink nose. His pose capitivated my heart.

Stacked atop my favorite home decor resource books NELL HILL'S Decorating Secrets and NELL HILL'S Feather Your Nest by Mary Carol Garrity. . . and On Crooked Creek by yours truly, adds visual interest to this grouping. The addition of the green leaf plate holds the entertainment remotes for quick accessibility.

A concrete urn holds faux boxwood greenery and replaces the dark hued florals of the past season.

Lighter, brighter and set for Spring . . .
Bunnies Abound On Crooked Creek!

IF, Pat, I could only find these little cuties under my sofa & furniture, I'd sure be a happier housekeeper than having the fluffy little dust fellas ...

Love your share ...

Happy pink April ~

GIVEAWAY ends 4/5

Pat -- you have some adorable bunnies!!!!

Alas, because we'll be gone, most of my bunnies are either down in the basement (the decorating kind) or under the bed (not the decorating kind!)

Pat, Your bunnies are such a cute reminder of Spring. We saw a baby bunny in our yard yesterday. Love your urn with the boxwood and green dish. Thanks for sharing your bunnies and Spring vignette.


How cute all those little bunnies gathered together in such a pretty vignette! They're all so adorable!

Hey Pat,
OMGosh I love your little rabbits...How sweet they are and just perfect for spring...We have a couple of real ones that will appear at the top of the driveway of an evening...but alas a certain noisy short person will send them scurrying for cover very quickly lol.

I am so glad you came by to visit us in the front garden and again on the back steps as we left our wet foot prints.

Hope you and Mr Ed are doing well and enjoying the season change as much as we are.

Blessings Kelsie

I love love love our bunny's. I used to have a bunch of them myself. Over the years they seem to have kinda run away I guess. I adore them. Sweet touch the little pair under the table.

Hoppy Spring

You have to have faux bunnies with your faux greenery or the real bunnies would eat them all.
