Bonnets and Bunnies...

The B's of Easter....

Bonnets and Bunnies...


as a diversion from the rain...

I popped into a little antique mall
for a some retail therapy...


and popped out with a sweet vintage bonnet...


a floppy velvet bow...


and
forget-me-nots
wrapped in a soft tattered net...

the Sweetness of Easter...


and of course you can't forget the Easter Bunny!

He is in charge of the sweets:-)

and since I am on a diet...
(forgive me that foul word!)

I am hoping somebunny
fills my basket
with some of that new Rachael Ashwell
bedding at Target...

Have you seen the lavender set?
dreamy...


Tonight I am joining,
and

 
Thanks for stopping by today...

Somebunny would be a fool to not fill your basket with the new Rachel Ashwell sheets!! <3

Bella this is so springy and fabulous. I am drooling over your bird cage. Those are my weakness...simply gorgeous. Thank you for this wonderful post! I would love it if you would share this at our WIW blog party. Hope to see you there.

Heavens! I need to run to Target and see the lavender line!!! Love the bonnet and I admire your discipline to diet. I have been eating chocolate eggs. Shhh...it is a secret, they are for the grandchildren!

I love the idea of an Easter bonnet for Easter decor! Your photos are so beautiful! I hope you get that bedding! I have a Rachel Ashwell set in lavender, but it was purchased over a year ago...at Target. Now I am curious about this new line. Maybe it will coordinate with what I have!
Best Wishes and Blessings,
Amanda

Hey this reminds me of the old days when we used to post within an hour of each other! You always have some darling whimsey going on. That looks like the ACTUAL Easter bunny! Love the cage of course. I have a vision of a black and white photo of someone wearing that hat! Those were the days, my friend! xx (Right this minute I'm on an Oreo cookie diet... It's really workin'!)

Hello Bella, I am one of your newest followers. I came in to the antique arcade in Lechlade last week and asked them ( as I haven't been able to contact you for some reason) to pass on a message...please..please carry on your blog. You haven't done anything on it since last August!
I do so love it.

Hi Bella
Sweet hat that you picked up, shopping is good therapy.
Target is not here yet so I'll have to hope you buy the lavender set and share a photo.
Happy Easter.

What a pretty bonnet, Bella! I remember being able to buy those sweet paper flowers in the store, with their bendy stems that were such a beautiful pale green. (And I see that's just not any bunny, but a princess bunny...) I hope you had a beautiful Easter. Happy Spring!
