Blue Bunny Monday








For this week's Blue Monday post, I thought I would feature some of my Easter decor that feature blue. For more information on Blue Monday, including how to join in or to find other Blue Monday posts, please click on the blue jay. It will take you to our host's blog, Smiling Sally.


Peter Rabbit is a ceramic music box that plays It's a Small World. Peter sat in the nursery for my sons as babies, then later moved to a living room shelf, and now spends a good part of the year in his retirement home, a.k.a. a storage cabinet.

This is my smallest rabbit. It used to reside in a wall hung curio cabinet for miniatures. Now she moves from niche to niche, probably chasing dust bunnies for sport!

These two have lived here for a long time, purchased at a gift shop no longer in business. They look ceramic because of their shiny appearance, but they are very lightweight.

One of the vendors at a craft mall does an amazing job painting wooden holiday pieces. Subtle additions like shading or the sparkle in the eyes of her critters make her work very popular.

This is a chipboard basket that I painted, papered and embellished in a class a few years ago. This is the small basket, there are two slightly larger basket behind it on this shelf in peach and purple.

There was another gift shop that I loved, especially for post-season clearance sales. This plate was reduced by 75% when I bought it years ago.

This "chocolate" bunny is on the inside of my front door. He is relatively cute as is, but it is the wording beneath him that clenched the sale at a craft show: Chocolate Bunny Escaping Easter. He always goes on the door so that he can make a quick get-away.

Your bunnies are all so cute! I love the one hanging on the door. That is a hoot. Thanks for your suggestion about the Christmas Store. I will have to search and see if there is one around here somewhere. Happy Blue Monday!

Knit, I feel so depressed because I didn't pull out any of my Easter stuff. I have moved back to my parents for a while, so won't get to visit much. I love all your bunny things and the painted one is something like we used to do, but has died here. thanks for always sharing your wonderful treasures. Love and Hugs, Pat
