Here comes Peter Cottontail..hopping down our Main Street trail..

...thing is...I can't find ANY rabbits, cottontails, or floppy eared, domesticated, Beatrix Potter style..nada

And it's not like I haven't looked....


Saw this guy, and although I didn't get close enough to actually see, I don't think he has a little puff of a tail..
So we looked....

Nope..that's Eve - the one who gave the eggs that probably started the whole "Egg-Bunny-Jelly Bean thing in the first place...

We finally just gave up and enjoyed our Spring walk..
















The afternoon was spent thrifting for a while then off to the hardware to get plumbing supplies..but lookie what I found...












Box of eggs - $3.00
Pretty hand-painted pitcher for my paint brushes - $1.00
Cute wooden carved giraffe - $1.00
Pretty wooden tissue box - $1.00
Darling (and working) clock - $3.00
Silly polka-dotted chicken- $1.00
Old tin tray (prettier in person) $1.00



..Thrill of the hunt - Priceless....

Have a glorious, peaceful and Happy Easter..and don't eat too many Jelly beans..

I enjoyed your pretty spring walk! And what fun thrifting you had. Using the pitcher for brushes is a great idea. Happy Easter!

Haha...when I read you went thrifting and then to the plumbing store and "look what I got", I thought you meant at the plumbing store. The first couple of pictures I thought, "Wow, they have a great plumbing store!" Oh, well, it's an 'age thing', I guess. Great finds. Lovely pictures from your walk! Happy Easter to you
and Mr. B!

Love the slinky whiskers! I need to come shop with you. Someday you'll find me sitting on your porch begging you to shop with me.
Happy Easter!

Hop into the season with an Easter tradition at the Strasburg Rail Road.
Travel with Peter Cottontail as an authentic steam train takes you on a 45-minute journey from the East Strasburg Station to Paradise, Pa. and back.
Also enjoy a ride on our miniature steam train, or steer the Cranky Cars around a track.
