Hey You Siwwy Wabbits!!!

I have had my Easter decorations out for a month and I just haven’t gotten around to taking photographs.

I think there must be a misplaced Easter box in the basement.  Several things are missing, or it could be that I let G-Man take them to Goodwill when I was trying to clean up my hoarding act last year.  What was I thinking????



A Tiny Village In Clocheville!



I like using vintage bases for my cloches

This is a crumbly vintage column base

(I put it in the freezer for a week to freeze out any unwanted buggins’!!!)



A wobbly rabbit…



…baby chicks add some Easter charm to the powder room

Forrest County and this story are fiction.

The names are real.  They have not been changed to protect anyone.

The story takes place in the town square on Easter Day, shortly

after the  Easter sunrise service at “All Creatures Bible Church”.


Everybody is looking quite dapper in their Easter attire

Some of these guys haven’t seen each other since…

the Christmas Eve Candlelight  Service!



Little Felicity Fieldmouse scurries off to check on her brood of young-uns!

She is a little uncomfortable around Abigail Whiskers anyway.



Isabel Carrots (the town gossip) bends Belinda Bears ear with juicy gossip

            Edward Carrots and Belinda run into each other in town.                 

Be careful Belinda, you know how that Isabel spreads gossip.



Always something to talk about!

Victor Bacon is in the background hoping that Isabel isn’t talking about him.

Rumor has it that he is in therapy every year at this time

because of his inability to walk by the spiral hams in the grocery store.



Edward Carrots, Henry Slyboots, and Scotty McPaws

are gathered in the town square discussing politics



Scotty McPaws is a very respected Forrest County resident.

He may be making a run for County Sheriff this year.

{This information came from Isabel Carrot.}

Mr. McPaws has not made a formal announcement.

Towns people are saying his Scotland Yard outfit

seems to back up Isabel’s story.

  1. I love your collection, Rhonda! They are too cute and I love the story! : ) I love that you use old bases for your cloches. That would be something to look for. I had no idea freezing things like this helped get rid of unwanted "friends". Good tip to know!
