Bunnies On Parade

I usually pull out my bunnies at the beginning of Lent, and don't put them away until it feels like summer. Last year, I 'thinned out' the collection, and hauled quite a few to the white elephant sale at our church fair. This year, when I started to unpack them, it seemed like their numbers had grown again, and I swear I have kept my promise not to buy any more! I'm starting to wonder what goes on in those sealed cartons. It must be true that rabbits do multiply quickly.

I probably still have too many, but there will be no more downsizing. Only my favorites are left, and I'll always find a spot for all of them.
Perhaps the one I favor the most, is this little guy riding a rooster. I have to smile every time I walk by him...
but I also like the other rabbits in my new smaller stash. I like the rabbits who are good friends...

and the bunnies who pretend to be chocolate.
These sophisticates are here to stay.
The small, cuter than a button youngsters will always have a home...

This classic bunny is a keeper,
as is the lop eared.
The rabbits that work, have earned their keep. Some push wheelbarrows...

some haul carts...
some carry flowers...

while others hold eggs...

or candles.
Some just stand around looking pretty while they wait for the Easter Parade.
This fella is handsome, but way to large for most shelves.

There are rabbits over the mantle and on the mantle.

The potholders...

and dishtowls have rabbits on them too!

Oh, and can't forget the bunnies that serve at table...

or the mamas with their young 'uns.

I still love my rabbits, although the live outdoor rabbits have destroyed large chunks of my gardens over the winter. If I could, I'd like to do this with all of them...
Come to think of it, that may solve the rabbit population explosion too! Anyone know how to tell a boy ceramic bunny from a girl ceramic bunny, and where can I buy a bunch of glass domes, cheap???
