Rabbits and Bunnies and Hares, Oh My!

If you visit Meadowsweet Cottage this time of year, you'll see that I have bunnies!  I have...

Wooden bunnies
Big bunnies and little bunnies
I have happy bunnies
And bunnies that are basket cases
Lop-eared bunnies
And friendly bunnies
Blue china bunnies
Some teensy-weensy bunnies that lift weights or play soccer
Even gardener bunnies and walkabout bunnies
Yes, there are bunnies everywhere you look
But my favorite bunnies are Peter Rabbit (of course)...
And this mischievous bunny who started it all. 
He's very old now. My grandma made him for me. She made one for all my cousins too (and I have more than thirty cousins).  Can you imagine how much time and effort and love that took?!

Those of us who still have our bunnies treasure them for the works of heart that they are.  What sentimental critters are you displaying this Easter season??

Cheers, from a very hoppy
