Easter Bunny Roundup: Gifts and Purchases, Old and New

I especially like the bunny who is rolling on the grass laughing!

These are from Valerie Parr Hill on QVC

I found these at the Dollar Store -- $7.00 total.

These were gifts from my sweet daughters, when they were very young.

My daughter gave me this rabbit.  A cupcake holder just fits for him to be filled with jellybeans. My husband keeps eating them as fast as I fill the rabbit, as you can see.

 
I bought this milk glass rabbit and the little tray for my mother when I was about eleven years old.  That would have been about 1957.  Mother died in 1981, so this is precious to me.

I saw this rabbit in a jewelry store window about 15 years ago and went in and asked if I could buy it. Of course, they said yes!

That little laughing bunny in the first photo is so cute. One can't help but smile upon seeing that.

Hello: I'm exploring the world of blogging and found you from another blog. Thank you for sharing the delightful bunnies!

I notice that you are a librarian. I'm an avid library user and serve our local libraries as a trustee.

I'll be back to spend more time with you.

Best,
Bonnie
