Spring Rabbits...Easter is Coming!

Hey Guys! I hope you are having a great start to your week! Looks like spring is on the way! The weather is getting so much warmer here in Arkansas. Tomorrow it's supposed to be in the 70s! YAY! I'm sooooo ready for warm temps. I can't wait to get flowers planted on the patio we built last year...and our new trees will start blooming soon too. We bought them last year after the season, so I am anxious to see what they look like in bloom!
I wanted to show you some of my rabbits. Now you have all seen this arrangement a million times, but every time I post it it's always just a little bit different...lol. I found this cute rabbit at Market in January and ordered some smaller ones to sell in my Etsy store. Isn't he cute? I ended up adding the green cabbage roses and little white daisies to springorize it just a bit more.


I also ordered this cute bunny at Market, he watches me wash dishes...lol. I found the "Spring" sign at Hobby Lobby last year.

I have had this little guy forever! He's been knocked over a few times, but he glues back well.


The rest of my rabbits stay out all year. This little rabbit oil painting sits behind the love seat. It's one of my favorite accessories and has been here since we moved in.

I bought these little guys at Kirkland's several years ago, they sit in my bookcase.

My favorite clock!
This was a box, but I broke the lid and it became a container. See the little rabbits on the bottom?
I am planning on participating in Table scape Thursday so I will show you my springy table then. I will also be showing my spring terrarium...hint: birds and butterflies.
Over the past few days I made a few more items for my Etsy store.


These little rabbits are just adorable!


See how cute they all look together?? ;)
I am really enjoying my new job! I worked today doing some custom designs and more arrangements for the store. I will take more pictures...this store is just beautiful! They have so many great items. It's still funny how things work out! Now I have extra money! Hubby is afraid I will be bringing new things home...we'll see. ;) I took this picture as I was running out the door today.
Please check back on Thursday for my little spring tablescape and terrarium!! Have a great week!

Kristen, your bunny decor is just precious. I love that arrangement that you change every so often...it always looks gorgeous no matter what you do to it. Your decor looks like something you would find in a high dollar boutique. You are so talented. Glad to hear that you love your new job. Well, enjoy the warm weather and I look forward to your next post. ~Liz

Kimberly said...

Your blog is probably one of my favorites! I love the bunny that watches you wash your dishes!! You have beautiful accessories!

Unknown said...

Kristen~ I have said it before... you have talent. I love the arrangement the best! I am also glad to learn that those roses that I love~ are called cabbage roses. It makes sense. All your bunnies are just so charming and sweet. Love how they are everywhere in your home hiding out. P.S. I just posted my easter entry table on my blog... come see... larsenloves.blogspot.com Have a fab. day in warm weather. JGG

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Just beautiful, Kristen! I love the arrangements with the bunnies and how they "spray" out. I keep my bunnies out all year, too! Can I ask where you got that lounging bunny by your sink? He is just wonderful!

Denise said...

oooh I love all your bunnies Kristen, they are gorgeous. I wish I knew where you got your lovely headers for your tassels, I need to go check out Hobby Lobby again, I want to try and make another one :)

Kim said...

I'm tellin ya, you should be selling those floral arrangements on Etsy! Can you tell who would be the first to buy one? You just can find original arrangements like that around here Kristen. You are immensely talented. But I've told you that about a million times haven't I? Ha!
xoxo,
Kim

Unknown said...

Melissa Miller said...

Kristen your bunny decor is precious! You really found some adorable new ones to display throughout your home. The kitchen counter vignette really makes me smile. Your flower arrangements are beautiful! I don't have any bunnies. I need to work on that.

I'm ready to see your pretty table too! Spring is on the way. It is warmer here today as well.

Have a good day. ~Melissa :)

Mom said...

Those bunnies are so cute and whimsical. It's not surprising that both of your arrangements already sold! I saw them last night, checked your store again this morning and they were both gone! I'll be checking back. =)

Blessings~

Lori @ Dining Delight said...

Always look forward to a new post from you, Kristen...so much eye candy! I love your new bunny in the floral arrangement (also love how you said "springorize" ..great word!)
The bunnies around your home are wonderful too. The new items you made for your Etsy store are fabulous! It looks like you have found the perfect place to work and will have lots of fun using your talents there.

Angie said...

I love all your cute bunny stuff! I have been wanting one of those paintings like you have in the gold frame, but they are always so expensive. May try to see how one printed out looks and frame it.

3LittleByrds said...

Ldy ~~ Dy said...

Hi Kristen...so nice of you to stop on by! I just love your bunnies all over your home. The one in the dining area that sits on your floor...he looks like he is peaking out from behind that tree. I love the whimsical style of these little guys! So cute!! Oh... and love your new Etsy creations. How fun to have a job doing what comes natural to you! What a blessing! Have a great day! Hugs!

Sharon said...
