Hippity Hoppity!

Here comes Peter Cottontail
Hopping down the bunny trail
Hippity Hoppity Easter's on its way!

Childhood memory: There was a radio station with the call letters "WBAP" that my mom listened to sometimes...In our childlike minds (My siblings and I), we wondered what the letters stood for, and we came up with "White Bunnies Are Pretty." We'd pass by billboards advertising the radio station, and we'd all yell "White Bunnies Are Pretty!"....(I am one of 7 children).




 It's Super Glam Bunny!!   I began with a paper mache bunny... painted her white... then covered her entirely in luxurious silk chiffon beaded & pearled fabric that was from a vintage formal evening gown...several different gowns, actually. I've pieced them together strategically to make this sweet bunny extra gorgeous and glam! 


 But that just wasn't enough....so I've decorated her in glitzy vintage rhinestone jewels! On her head is a crown-like set of jewels to accent her pretty face. Here necklace is a vintage rhinestone bracelet, and I hung a chandelier crystal for her pendant. Down her back are rhinestone chevrons....then around her sides & back are more rhinestones and a delicate chain draping down and sewn on to her necklace.

 
Look at her swirly little cottontail! Then I also made a sweet little nest of eggs also covered in beaded fabric and set it a pretty little silver bowl.....  Here are a few more pretties that I made for Easter.



 Pinks and Blues and Yellows, OH MY!!





Aren't the sequins fabulous?!  So much fun creating these!  :)
Check back soon to see the decorated bottles I made in the same style, complete with an Easter egg stopper to go on top of the bottle.  Thanks for visiting my little blog-- so happy you are here!
Hugs, Catherine
