Bunny Accents

As my husband walked through the house today he commented on how he liked all the bunnies I had placed around. I hadn't planned on decorating for Spring or Easter, I just love having my bunny collection out this time of year. His comment made me realize that a few little bunnies as accents here and there can create a Spring-y, Easter feeling.

As you'll see, my decorating style reflects country/primitive, to industrial, to Victorian, to vintage and Traditional.

I have a bunny for that.

In the center of the kitchen island I put a ceramic lettuce bowl with bunnies popping out the top onto my quilted placemat. Just enough cuteness.

I let my Peter Rabbit trinket jar hang out with the vintage scale on the top of the fridge.


 A smaller Peter Rabbit salt shaker keeps the vintage green bottle and toy iron company.

In the dining room on my pie safe cupboard hangs a pipe cleaner bunny. He's holding a pink egg.

Ten bunnies are hanging on my favorite corner cupboard, made from die cut wooden bunnies I found on Etsy.

On the top of my large mustard cupboard is a handmade chalkware bunny and another Peter Rabbit!
In the parlor on one end of the window seat I changed out the glass jar from winter décor to a ceramic bunny from the '80's with some glass and handpainted eggs on a bed of pink grass. The large pink bunny was a find last year from a local thrift store. She looks like mercury glass. I decided to hold on to her awhile before selling her!
My newest bunny is from the 1950's. A stuffed, pink plush music box baby bunny with a plastic painted face. So reminiscent of my childhood, I had to have her.

On the parlor mantel I added a glass brown bunny to my vintage vanity mirror and glass bottle stoppers. He feels right at home.

On the parlor table between the wing chairs are the two little bunnies that I talked myself into keeping because I don't think they are old enough to be called vintage ;-) Actually I just can't part with them!

This bunny IS old enough to be called vintage since I have had her for as long as I can remember and she comes out every year to her place by the side table and pocket door. She loves it there in the late afternoon sun.

As you enter the living room my wooden bunny pull toy found a spot to rest in front of my large glass bottle with my cotton stems from Décor Steals and my chippy painted child's chair.

This is a unique bunny in that it is made to look like carved wood on a wooden base but the bunny is actually made of something breakable.....I found that out the hard way! She has recovered nicely.
No dismantling one or more areas to decorate.
Just tucking a bunny in here and there.
My kind of decorating!

  1. Love all your bunnies! I haven't been able to do any decorating with the house being turned upside down from the kitchen remodel. I'm hoping to drag out a few things before the weekend since my daughter will be home. Ha e a wonderful week!

  2. Hi AnnMarie,
    Your bunnies about the house are wonderful, you do have quite a collection.
    Have a blessed week and a Happy Easter!

  3. Dear AnnMarie, Your bunnies are so nice and they do bring spring to life.
    I love little bunnies. I remember seeing so many growing up in the yard. I never see any anymore.
    You always decorate so pretty and warming to the heart.
    I wish you and your family the Happiest and most Blessed Easter Holiday.
