  1. Precious! I love bunnies and I love Easter decor. This is soooo PrEcIoUs! What’s next? I wait with great anticipation.

  2. I LOVE this project . How clever! I also love Peter Cottontail. I actually had a stuffed Rabbit of Peter and his mother, and read those books all the time, then read Beatrix Potter to my kids until they wouldn’t listen anymore. Thanks for the nostalgia, love the updated look for Peter!

  3. How cute is that? Love that idea.
    Clever idea on your egg garland as well.
