Part of the fun of scouring flea markets and antique shops is finding, by happenstance, those treasures that you've started collecting... you know, the ones that make your heart sing when you spy it. For me, it's those precious, vintage spun cotton wool ornaments. They're like finding a needle in a haystack as these are tiny treasures that have, over the years, taken a toll. I adore their creamy color... their soft texture and, often times, misshapen forms. Just yummy! My newest acquisition?? Two adorable little bunnies.... just in time for Easter!
They're each missing one eye. One is missing his carrot. Silly bunny must have gotten very hungry over the years! Each stands on its hind haunches. Each has sweet little arms (ok..literally, there are front legs but I much prefer to give them human characteristics!). And each have such full little tummies!
Because this little one showed the most restraint with his carrot, he was selected to nest in the little basket I made for him. Proudly, but with a humble heart, he sits next to a vintage honeycomb egg.
Oh, oh! Someone doesn't seem very happy about that decision!
(Due to their delicate structure, this one has had his nose turned upside down and it makes him look a little forlorn!)
Don't worry, little one!
You will still shine in your official bunny portrait!!
And where did these sweet little bunnies end up? Perched on one of my cake stands... protected under a cloche! I wouldn't have it any other way! I'm so proud to be their new owner... they will be treasured forever and ever!!
Happy Easter, everyone!
May you have a very blessed day!
