Here Comes Peter Cottontail a Little Early! :)

Hello, Dear Ones! Don't think I'm crazy, but I was dreaming of springtime and Easter and all the little sweetnesses that go along with the season.

So I thought I would share with you a few little Easterscapes I had around the house last year.

This little precious bunny was given to me many many years ago by my Dear Daughter. Isn't she just the cutest little thing? She very girly and has on her Easter bonnet and her own little Easter snow globe with a tiny little rabbit in there.
Now where could our little baby be? Baby! Baby! hee hee :)
Olden looking sweeties!
Oh look! It's Peter Cottontail!!
Peter says, "Can you help me? I can't breath! Get me outta here!" Settle down honey!
Thanks for letting me just play today! Spring is just around the corner you know and I just couldn't help myself. Now you know you're gonna see these little sweetnesses again, don't you?

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

Here Comes Peter Cottontail
(you knew I was going to sing this, didn't you?)

PETER COTTONTAIL
Here comes Peter Cottontail
Hoppin' down the bunny trail,
Hippity hoppity,
Easter's on its way
Bringin' ev'ry girl and boy
A basketful of Easter joy
Things to make your Easter
Bright and gay
He's got jelly beans for Tommy
Colored eggs for sister Sue
There's an orchid for your mommy
And an Easter bonnet too. Oh!
Here comes Peter Cottontail
Hoppin' down the bunny trail
Hippity hoppity
Happy Easter Day
Here comes Peter Cottontail
Hoppin' down the bunny trail
Look at him hop and listen to him say,
"Try to do the things you should"
Maybe if you're extra good
He'll roll lots of Easter eggs your way
You'll wake up on Easter morning
And you'll know that he was there
When you find those choc'late bunnies
That he's hiding ev'rywhere,
Oh!
Here' comes Peter Cottontail
Hoppin' down the bunny trail
Hippity hoppity
Happy Easter Day.

  2. Good morning Sheila! I'm so ready for spring...we had our first snow over the weekend. I was driving to work yesterday and there was still snow on the ground on March 2nd! I love Easter decorations...my colors and bunnies!! Your tablescapes are precious! I'm like Mildred but I'm yearning for those precious Easter M&M's! God bless you today! Lauralu :)

  3. That bunny with a bonnet is a lamb! However, all your pictures show a lady who knows how to decorate.

  6. How sweet these are, dear one.
    Oh, I am so afraid that I don't have a single easter decoration in my cottage. OK, that means I HAVE to order one of those precious EASTER banners from CHERRY HILL COTTAGE'S daughter....right ??
    YOUR bunnies are so sweet...and I hope we DO get to see them again...
