It's "2nd Time Around Tuesday"!

Hello my friends...welcome to "2nd Time Around Tuesday"!

This fun filled Tuesday event is hosted by our very own Diane over at A Picture Is Worth A 1000 Words. I really have fun with all of the "2nd Time Around" treasures...it's like a blast from the past and I've learned so much about so many old treasure finds!!! Why don't you go pay Ms. Diane a visit...see what "2nd Time Around" treasures that she has for us today and while you're over there...you'll find a list of participants...come on and let's go!!!

My "2nd Time Around" Treasure Find...
Easter Bunny...Easter Tree!
*
I found this darling little Easter bunny at the ARC Thrift Store after Easter. I spotted him right away...just sitting there so darling on the shelf! I picked him up and to my surprise...he was very, very heavy! I just couldn't figure out why this little bunny weighed so much until I turned him over and read that he was an Easter bunny stand for an Easter egg tree! Okay, now that makes sense...I could certainly understand why he weighed so much...he would need to be pretty weighty to be able to hold up a tree with decorations on it!!!
*
As you can see, he's missing his Easter egg tree...but no worries, I think I can find something that'll work! Maybe I can find a pretty little branched twig and spray paint it white. Got any other ideas?
*
Mr. Bunny is just so handsome in his little green waist coat and pink plaid vest! Just look at his little yellow & lavender polka dot bow tie! Hehe! I just love all of the pretty pastel colors...so Eastery, of course! Mr Bunny is carrying a basket full of Spring flowers! He was made by Hallmark and has a glittery like sheen...the photos really do not do him justice!


*
Mr Bunny was marked 75% off on the "after Easter" sale.
*
He was only .75 cents!
*
After seeing so many cute Easter Trees this past Easter...I can't wait to put Mr. Bunny out next Easter!!!


Well my friends...there you have it...my little "2nd Time Around" treasure! This was a short but sweet post...hehe! I'm giving ya'll a break from my normally "wordy" post! Hehe!!!


Have a terrific Tuesday, my friends!!!

Love ya'll,
Chari

Love ya'll,
Chari

Now is definitely the best time ever to find all those really good buys on seasonal items. I love Mr. Bunny and the canisters are just gorgeous. Hugs, Marty

Chandy said...

Mr. Bunny is gorgeous! I hope you find his tree... I've been busy trying to get things cleaned over here so I haven't been able to visit most of you, but I found some time today, so... here I am! ;-)

Kim @ Manning Family Tree said...

Your bunny is too cute!! And the price is fabulous! I had to laugh when you mentioned your post not being your normal wordy one. I never thought of your posts are too wordy. I love them (but maybe because I am wordy too). Anyways, it gave me a giggle. Thanks!

Chari, I cannot believe what a deal you got on that pretty Mr. Bunny! I'm wondering if one of those wire photo holders would fit in his hand. if you bent the "arms" out on one of those, you could hang little eggs on the "branches". Those pink canisters behind him are beautiful too. laurie

Lynn said...

Mr. Bunny is very cute, and oh my goodness, what a bargain!
You will surely find just the right tree between now and next Easter!

Thanks for the note that you left in my bathroom...I love the concrete floors too. I would love to have them also.
