A Bunny and Bees Vignette

Bunnies are everywhere this time of year!
I picked up this bunny at Tuesday Morning the other day
because of its golden-butter color.  I brought it home and planted
some springtime flowers in it:  purple/yellow violas and pink petunias.
The pictures of my children were taken by a dear friend at Kate Session's Park.
I placed the bunny on a dresser draped with burlap along side a pink 
English transferware plate depicting "Gov. Langdon Mansion Where
George Washington Was Entertained.  Portsmouth, N.H."
I collect pink transferware but this one is extra special because "Langdon"
is a family name for my children on their other side.  Who knows? 
Governor Langdon may have been a distant relative of their's.  
You can see the Governor's Mansion a little better here - just above a bee.
I seem to be naturally drawn to things with bees.  This is a beeswax 
candle stuck with a metal bee.  The silk flowers to the left were
leftover from my Easter tablescape here
Just behind the bunny are another two beeswax candles stuck
with two more bees.  I bought these candles and bee sticks
separately and quite possibly both at Home Goods.  
The plants are outdoor plants so I don't expect them to last very long.
I'm hopping my bunny will last and be pretty to look at until Easter. 
Then I will transfer the plants outside to the garden where I'm sure
they will be happier and among their favorite bees!

I will be joining some new (to me!) parties this week.  
I hope you check them out!
