A Pretty Little Christmas Party


Oh how fun is this! Heather over at Pretty Petals is hosting a Christmas Party! A Pretty Little Christmas Party that is! I just couldn't resist the urge to participate. So here is my take on a pretty little Christmas. Of course there are bunnies involved!!
I found this bunny in Williamsburg, VA at an antique market. I snatched it up in a big hurry. I just love it and actually keep it out all the time. Keep Christmas in your heart all year long.
I bought this snow bunny about 10 years ago. I just love the feather boa.
Isn't this "bunny" globe magnificent??? I just love it when the candle is lit and there is a soft, sweet, innocent glow around the bunnies.
David and I have been together since 1989. At that time we started collecting "fun/goofy" ornaments. Our anniversary is in September. Every year we go purchase our new ornament. This tree is in our bedroom and contains all the ornaments we have collected. This bunny sits on top of our "fun" tree. I bought it about 11 years ago at an art show in Virginia Beach. It is handmade and I just treasure it.
Usually I decorate 4 trees and this tree goes on our bedroom. However, this year I'm just so darn tired and I didn't feel like moving all the furniture and other stuff, so I decided to use this tree in the living room. Then I decided to change my theme of this tree from "victorian" to "bunny." I'm so excited. I really, really want this flocked tree from the local pottery place. It's $349. I know they'll put it on clearance after Christmas and I'm gonna get up early and go GRAB that sucker! So next year the "Bunny" tree will be quite spectacular. It does look pretty good this year though.


These are some of my most favorite ornaments on the bunny tree




Of course, these are the most precious bunnies of them all, Chloe and Razzy.

I hope you have a very Pretty Little Christmas and a very Happy New Year!
Hugs,
Shell
This week IGF pretty little things and bunnies of course!
