The Easter Bunny is Coming and Other Musings

Easter has arrived in my kitchen.   

Unfortunately my camera didn't.  This is via cell phone.

These cute little German wood rabbit  figures are called Erzgebirge.  Yes, you can find Easter antiques....

Even my mom loves a chocolate bunny at 81!  Share one with a friend.  One of the highlights of my childhood was an easter basket that my Aunt put on our beds Easter Eve.  She told us she saw the easter bunny put it there, and if we went outside, we might see him running from house to house.  We were so excited, we all went outside to scout for the easter bunny.  A silly story, but it gave me a big thrill, I must have been 5 or 6.  The next day we had an easter egg hunt for his remaining "tricks".  One of 7 kids, that extra attention was so exciting.

Do something nice for someone this weekend! However, resist the urge to give a child a live rabbit.

They are so cute!
They grow up

Don't let one go in the wild once you've gotten one.  They won't survive.

Give the chocolate variety instead!

Run over to Williams Sonoma for this basket!
While you're there, maybe you'll be lucky enough to find this French Wire Egg Stand.  I got the last one in my store!

We have the jackrabbit variety visiting us daily.  There's at least a dozen on the property at any time.
Lettuce doesn't stand a chance!
Happy Easter, may it be a sunny day, somewhere.  (Rain forecasted for Portland, Oregon. Oh really, what a shock)
