Hoppy Spring!!


Yep - had to say it - HOPPY SPRING!!!  A couple days late, but SO glad it's finally here!!

This little cutie pie is my fav - don't ya just love those big chocolate brown eyes??

And, with spring comes a change in decor here and there - and especially in my "trusty" conservatory!  It's the place where the seasons change, holidays are celebrated, and collections are displayed...of which there are many! :)

I located my box of "Easter" in my basement - hidden behind "Christmas" - but thank goodness I had marked the box last year! ;)  Just thought I'd share a few views of Peter Cottontail and friends - rescued from various fleamarkets, garage sales, and thrift stores - they seem to get along quite well considering the differences in their backgrounds!


This little guy is an old rubber squeeze toy.

 A little "chalk" bunny under glass...and friend.

This little chickie is so very chic in her Easter bonnet!

A little garden fun from my friend Carol! 
("Hoppy Birthday Crossing")

A cute little group!

A sweet brother and sister team with their little woodland friends.

 A side view... 

Angelic little lambs...frolicking amongst the bunnies.

A vintage postcard - I love the artwork on this one!

The gang's all here!

I'd say it looks like a bad hair day, but I don't want to hurt her feelings... 
But isn't her raggedy friend on the right too sweet (well loved I'm sure!)?

A happy couple...they're enjoying the sunshine just like me!

Another pair of cute chocolate brown eyes!

 One big happy family!

Here's a complete view - my conservatory sitting atop my $10.00 garage sale find sideboard - I know cheap, right??   (and all it needed was a quick coat of white paint)

One last peek...

And, last but not least, here's a little "faux" bunny alongside a cloche I made from a couple orphaned pieces of junk...see my post on JUNKMARKET Style for all the pics! 

Hop you enjoyed a peek into my conservatory - my next change in decor will be a vintage beach for the summer...that's my favorite time of year!

P.S.  Another great thing about spring ----garage sales and fleamarkets!  Woo hoo!  Happy hunting!

  2. Well I'd have to say I'm "hoppy" that spring is on the way. I love your conservatory and how you change it out with the seasons. Your little friends are just too cute.
