Getting Your Bunny On ~ Easter is On its Way!


We missed the big snow storm.  Cape Cod got it, but here on the East end of Long Island we lucked out!

We got the 50 mph winds and it is frosty, but at least no snow! 

I mean ,how can we think bunnies and chicks when we are still dealing with Snowmen?

I am starting to drag the Easter decos up from the basement.

table 697

This is a Villeroy and Boch Egg I got years ago.  You can use the top for flowers.  I waited them out for it and when it went to clearance, I scooped it up for under 15.00

table 704 (Small) (3)

You can see it here holding tulips.  The Bunny pitcher is by Mikassa, and the plates came from HG.

table 708

This Villeroy & Boch  Mama Bunny is a cookie jar.  I gave it to my dil, but she has 4 more little bunnies plus the one here!

table 2181

Egg tray with bunny salt and pepper shakers.

table 2113

My Debbie Mumm basket, the top comes off to fill with goodies.

I got it at the Oneida Outlet years ago.

table 2115

table 2116

table 2120

A smaller version of the V&B egg vase, it was a gift.

table 3508

An abundance of ripe bananas meant I had to bake. I gave some to my neighbors, and some went into the freezer.


Banana Choc chip Crumb.  The addition of the crumbs gives it a nice twist.


You can see the recipe here.  Then just add crumbs, butter, flour, sugar, cinnamon, you know how!  I am sure the way you make crumbs is as good as mine.

I want to show you some gifts I recently received for my birthday.  Come back this weekend, I’ll show you!

Thanks for stopping by! Hope Spring is hopping your way!

  1. A belated "Happy Birthday" Kathleen. I love to see your Easter decor. Isn't that Debbie Mumm basket adorable. It's been and long and cold winter and it's time to get our mind on Spring. Deb

  2. Happy Belated birthday! So glad the latest storm passed you by. I pulled out some Easter to get to my Paska making stash. Love your stash.

  3. Our Oneida outlet is closing soon. I will miss it dearly! It was very windy and cold here today, but no snow. As soon as it warms up a little, I'll start thinking about Easter.

  4. You have very nice Easter items. The Velleroy and Boch things are extra special. The banana loaf looks yummy...Christine

  5. Love your Easter table, I'm so happy that here on Long Island we did not get snow ;-)


  6. Oh, how I miss the V&B outlet. There were some wonderful buys.

    Love that blue plaid plate in the last shot.

  7. Very cute K! Yep, luckily nothing but a dusting here too. Where is this Spring I hear so many speak of???:@)

  8. I love your Springy green header, Kathleen. You sure have some great outlets shops in your area. I've brought out a few Easter things and I enjoyed seeing yours. XO

  9. Happy belated Birthday wishes! Mine was on Monday! You have some cute spring decor- I really like that egg basket!

  10. Your header is lovely, it glows with Spring. I Love all of your Easter pieces, nothing like bunnies and eggs to get you in the mood for Easter! I love the tablecloth with the blue and yellow pansies. I love pansies and I was so happy when I saw them today for the first time this year at my local garden center. We had about eight inches of snow in my back yard yesterday. It is about half gone now and should be gone completely by tomorrow morning with the temperatures rising all night.

  11. Happy belated Birthday! Your table is gorgeous with so many pretty Easter decor items!

  12. I'm so glad the storms missed you! You guys have had more than your share!!! We are under a tornado watch here right now. The day has been so weird with rain and wind all last night, thunderstorms into the early afternoon today, then clearing skies, then back to rain & thunder, then hail, then clearing skies again. It is sunny right now, but more rain is on the way. Egads!!!

    I'm glad to see you are getting out all of the Easter decor. I have been trying hard to move in that direction, but it has been a challenge. I will probably start tuggin' on crates this weekend. I love that cookie jar. That would make an appearance EVERY year around here, even though we don't eat many cookies anymore. (I MISS cookies!!!)

    That's a great idea to add the crumbs to the banana bread! I think I'll try that next time around!!!

    Have a fantastic weekend, and I hope you get some clear skies and warm temps to make it a perfect one!

  13. I am so thankful you didn't get snow again! Love your touches of spring, even if it's cold outside. It sure is spring inside!

  23. Kathleen, you have so many unique and pretty Easter pieces. Bananas and chocolate are a favorite combination of mine. I'm going to go check out this recipe. For some reason, when I click on your name in my comments, it tells me that your blog is unavailable. I have to go back and click on a link to your blog in one of my previous posts. Have a good weekend. laurie

  24. Happy Spring! Your header is absolutely gorgeous! Live the vase too....never seen anything like it! ❤❤

  25. So many pretty Easter things, Kathleen -- I love them all! I especially love the polka dot salad plates, the V & B egg vase, and the bunny pitcher and cookie jar.

I enjoyed seeing all your pretties -- thanks for sharing.

  26. What day was your birthday, Kathleen? Mine was the 22nd.

    I haven't gotten my Easter things out yet. You have so many cute things.

  27. Your bunnies and Easter things are so cute. And, the banana chocolate chip cake would be delicious eith a cup of tea. Glad the snow missed you.

  28. Love your pastel tablescape, Kathleen! You've got some great pieces to use for Spring and Easter, too. Love that egg and, of course, all the bunnies.

    Hope you are done with snow now! : ) I think we are. It's been raining the past couple of days, but I'd rather that than snow.
