Here Comes Peter Cottontail....

*

*
Hello my friends...I hope that you're having a great day!
*
It's been busy at my place...I'm still trying to get "caught up" from our trip to Las Vegas and I have a serious case of "Spring Fever". We really have been having beautiful weather lately...I think that Spring has finally made it to Colorful Colorado!!! I was able to get outside Sunday and get our patio cleaned off. I'm hoping to take my morning coffee out there soon!!! Anyway, I haven't had much time to play in the house but I really wanted to join in with Marty's Table Top Tuesday party so I quick and took a few photos of one of my newest treasure finds...Peter Rabbit!!!
*
Here Comes Peter Cottontail...

*
This area is in my kitchen. I just love my old enamel topped table! As you can see...it's pretty "chippy"...just the way I like it! I rescued this old table from outside when I first came to my honey's home! It now has a warm, comfortable home in our kitchen!
*

*
I have had so much fun decorating this little table!
*
Right now an old copper boiler pot filled with a basket of ivy...sits in the background. Honey bought this old copper pot from an outdoor flea market several years ago...just for little ol' me.
*
I also have a lamp, that I found at Hobby Lobby a couple of years ago, on the table. Love the bronze finish...I think the color coordinates nicely with the copper pot...and I love the lamp shade! The fabric shade is black on the outside with a pretty animal print on the inside. My rooster tassel that I won in a giveaway over at Susan's Between Naps on the Porch...decorates the lamp ever so sweetly!
*
A large Italian gold pitcher and platter...and a decorative wine box sits in a black wooden tray.
*
and...
*
Guess who has come to visit on this old enamel table top vignette?
*

*
It's Peter Cottontail!!!
*
I just found this sweet rabbit at TJ Maxx. It was love at first sight!!! I looked at him...and he looked at me...and then he jumped right into my basket! Hehe! He's stands at a stately 19 in. tall. He was only $14.99...I love bunnies!!!
*

*
Peter Cottontail insisted that I get a photo of his long coat-tails! He's so proud of his fancy coat!
*

*
Love the detail of Peter's long coat-tails!
*

*
How could I resist such a cute face?
*

*
Peter seems to be right at home on top of my old enamel top table!

Chari, I love, love, love that table and the copper boiler is wonderful. I use to have one of those and then sold it. The lamp is perfect with the pitcher and bowl for a great vignette, but Mr. Cotton Tail just makes it. He is adorable and I love his top coat tails. What a cutie. Thanks so much for joining the party. Hugs, Marty

xinex said...

Peter sure is a handsome fella, Chari. I love his coat tail. I am so sorry to hear about Seth's surgery. I hope they get it right the second time, if there will be a second time. I am hoping there will be another better option. I will pray so that the right decision will be made, Chari. It was so good to see you again! Thanks for coming by....Christine

Cindy (Applestone Cottage) said...

Hi Chari,
I just got to go read your wonderful Vegas post and start to get caught up on all the others. See my dear, I just got out of the hospital tonight. I had emergency surgery on my very infected gall bladder. I went in Thursday morning with a temp of 102 and so much pain. I am still so weak but I will be coming back over soon to chat my friend. Big Hugs, Miss ya, Cindy

Sherry said...

I love your bunny and you chippy table. So neat. You have the prettiest things displayed on it. I love the yellow pitcher.

Kim @ Starshine Chic said...

Peter is irresistible. I love his coat tails. I can see why you couldn't pass him up. Glad to hear that the weather is finally saying Spring in your neck of the woods. I love your table!!! It's fabulous.

Mary Ellen said...

Love your Mr. Cottontail Chari! What a darling vignette you created!

Looks like you and Gloria had a great ol time! I got to meet another one of my blogging buddies this weekend too. It is so fun and makes the world so much smaller with all the lovely ladies I have met via the net!

How have you been feeling after your trip- hope it wasn't too much for you. With the weather changing I am getting a bit more energy which is such a blessing!! Got some little seeds planted today- still have weeks before they can be planted so hope I am not too late!! Also have been doing a bit of organization with my linens, craft stuff etc. Also have started cleaning out my detached sunroom so I can fix that up hopefully soon. I think I am putting off figuring out what to do with that dining room! I am so ADD!! COME HELP!!!

Have a great week friend!!

bee blessed

Hi Chari! I love your bunny! I love how you decorated the whole table! I've been thinking about your grandson...praying he's doing well after his surgery! God Bless! Lauralu :)

Lana said...

As always, this is wonderful, dear Chari! I love that chippy table, your new TALL bunny, the copper tub, the vivid yellow/golden pitcher (I'm all about yellow this week with my tablescape) and even that wonderful tassel I see there is gorgeous!!!
Your attention to detail is fantastic and you just style it all so well/mixing and matching elements that once you put them together seem as if they were always meant to be sharing time together!
GORGEOUS!!!
I pray that you had a blessed Easter and that it's warmer for you now! I'm SO THANKFUL that it's finally warmer here--I still can't fathom all the snow we had here IN ALABAMA in February/March!
Hugs/blessings, Lana

Cozy Little House said...

And he's such a stately bunny too! I also love that enamel topped table. I have been looking for one of those. Don't have any earthly idea where I'd put it. But I so love the look of them. You did a great job with this!

Dear Chari,

How nice to have a little niche that you can play with. Yellow is such a happy colour and Peter looks quite at home!

Your trip sounded fabulous! Maybe an annual event to look forward to.

Have a blessed week. Pam

Peter is one cute little rabbit! Love your table top, love your table! I am lusting after that lampshade though!

Polly @ Make Mine Beautiful said...

I love it all, but I'm especially admiring that yellow pitcher. I have a green one that's similar and would love to find one like yours too.

Sandra said...

Very nice! I think Mr Cottontail looks stunning! That pitcher is really pretty too. Love all of your vignettes, Chari. Have a wonderful day!

I'm delighted with your most recent post! What an adorable table top vignette for Marty's 'Tabletop Tuesday' my dear!

That ol' Mr. cottonail is looking mighty fine! I love that ribbon tassel and the yellow pitcher especially!~ Exceptional as always my dear!

I've got to 'hop away now'~ Hehe (I know!..,Yet I couldn't resist)!..,

It's a busy day here at the Blue Forest Lane Bed and Breakfast 'beehive' Chari, so this will be my version of 'short and sweet':Hehe

Mama is slowly but surely improving, (yet is still in a lot of pain even yet with her nurve myalgia). Thanks for your continued prayers(also Chari, I am on stronger doses of iron which is also slowly but surely helping!..,

I have just lifted Seth before the Lord once again, as well as your other precious grandson Chari and will continue by the grace of almighty God to do so with much love dear friend!

Do take a quick peek at my very special 26th ,'Tuesday Tea for Two', BLOG POST THIS WEEK CHARI.., IT'S VERY WHIMSICAL AND I THINK YOU'LL ENJOY IT; IT WAS SO MUCH FUN TO 'PLAY WITH' AND CREATE, AS I CAN SEE WAS YOURS!.., (oops, hit that caps button by accident again)!..,

Have a marvelous week my friend!
