Show & Tell: Bunny Love

Why did Pa & Ma Bunny stick around after Easter had passed?
They were waiting for a special delivery:)

Finally the flamingo {think stork} came (Oriental Trading)

Delivering precious babies for the Bunny Couple.



Now Pa & Ma Bunny have their hands (and hearts) full, and are ready to retire until next Easter.
I wanted a couple of bunnies, with bunny babies to represent each of my kiddos. I wanted it to be touchable for my grands, and easy to display. I found Pa & Ma on Ebay (Pa is stuffed, Ma is a rag doll), and looked high and low for babies. Finally I found them on Oriental Trading (if you are looking for cheap items in lot amounts, OrientalTrading.com is the place to go). These baby bunnies are in felt carrots, and have hanging loops. I unglued Ma's hands, looped on the carrots, and pinned the hands back. (Pa wanted to hold some too;). I can hang these up, or display them seated. I think the couple is quite happy:) I know I am.

Happy Show & Tell:) Join Kelli at There is no place like home for Show & Tell:)
Have a great weekend!!!!
