The Bunny Tree - Part One
Every year it truly makes me smile that you ask me to share photos of my bunny tree. My collection of bunny ornaments keeps growing and growing, so I decided to break this post up into a few parts.
Over the years, I have simplified many things and Christmas decorations were some of them. I focus mainly on my tree, letting the ornaments stand alone without lots of garlands, florals etc., as each of them has a special meaning. I do hang our stockings at the mantel and place two little woodland trees on top. I also have a small tree in my bedroom just because I like the cozy feeling of the lights.
This is how my tree looks from my living room. My living room, dining room, foyer and kitchen are all open to each other.
Of course, my tree topper is a bunny. A bunny elf as a matter of fact. I purchased this handmade fella back in the early 90's. I simply adore him.
David and I started dating in 1989. That very first Christmas we purchased an ornament together and have been collecting them ever since. We were married in 1991 and last year I found this vintage Hallmark ornament on ebay! How cool is that?
Every year, in addition to the ornament David and I purchase, I also purchase a new bunny ornament. This year it was Jingles. He is handmade by my wonderful friend, artist, and storyteller, Anita of Castles, Crowns and Cottages. I looooooooove him!
Below are more of my beloved bunny ornaments.
I hope you enjoyed this visit. I'll post more bunny ornament photos next Monday. Until then, we'll see you right back here on Wednesday. I'll have one of my original Folk Art Fusion pieces for sale.
Have a fun day! We love you right up to the moon and back!
xx, Michelle and the Bunnies
