You'll find them in the garden . . .
Where flowers are beginning
to show their pretty faces.
Ahh . . . Springtime in Texas!

Herend bunnies gather on the shelves
in the living room.
These cuties too!
I seem to be attracted to the charm of
these little cast iron rabbits who have followed
me home through the years.
The standing bunny top right is the most recent.
The dealer said when she found him he was attached to an inkwell.
Evidently the ink well was in sad condition, but she
knew someone like me would give this little fellow a home.
This group fits right in among some of the leafy
pieces of my vintage majolica on the living room bookshelves.
This big guy with his load of baskets sits on the shelf above.
He is very special because he once belonged to a
good friend who is no longer with us.
The petite lapin with a basket of flowers on his back

He is part of a vignette on the table in the kitchen sitting room.
and the jaunty rabbit on the stand was painted by a local artist.
Vignettes within the Irish pine cupboard in the
kitchen sitting room include some French faience bunnies.
The wool needle punch bag that hangs
on the door was an Etsy find.
Fresh cut flowers are a treat

A single vase of flowers is all that is on the table for now.
Over on the sideboard is a Courtly Check vignette
that hints of what's to come in April.
When I spotted this darling little chick in the
MacKenzie-Childs spring catalog, it was love at first sight.

my "personal shoppers" found for me at the
MacKenzie-Childs' Barn Sale last summer.
Thank you, Debbie and Patti!
See these adorable little chicks?
They are one of a kind, painted for me by the talented
Patti @ Pandora's Box.
