There are times, while shopping, certain items appeal greatly to the eye. It really doesn't even matter if the shopping takes place in a nice store, thrift shop or yard sale. Such was the case of a pink table runner for Easter. It was actually from a store (miracle of miracles!) and, if memory serves me correctly, it was Home Goods.
I loved it the minute I set eyes on it and bought it.
The pretty pink runner gets plenty of use each year. Sometimes it graces the dining room table but this year, it is front and center in the kitchen. It's so cute. Even though the kitchen is now yellow and blue, the runner looks nice with my favorite Victorian vase and pink roses.
By the way, a sweet little bunbun hopped in there!
Eventually the runner will wear out, like me someday, but for now, I'm going to keep using it.
Every year, when pulled out, it's a sure sign that Easter's on its way.
HOW ABOUT YOU? DO YOU USE ITEMS OVER AND OVER AGAIN EACH HOLIDAY?
On the table in the front hallway, there are numerous bunny "cousins" congregating for Easter. One is quite small. He has beady eyes and a fluffy tail and is shown in this post. Every time our granddaughter, just two and a half years old, comes over, the small bunny "disappears" from the table! She is able to reach up and just grab the little fellow.
Apparently that's her favorite bunny because she doesn't take any of the others. I've found little bunny hop hop in the kitchen, hallway, bathroom and living room. There's no telling where his travels will take him on the next visit from the little darling grand baby. Oh! Forgot. I cannot call her "baby" anymore.
As many of you already know, dolls are one of my passions. They brought joy throughout my childhood and all through my adult years. Two of them in my collection remind me of places I'd still love to visit.
The dancer at the top of this post makes me dream of seeing flamenco dancers in Spain! How I would love to visit that beautiful country. (And Italy, too!) The Anne of Green Gables doll finds me yearning to go to Prince Edward Island. Just to see the rolling green grass and quaint countryside that Anne so loved starts me thinking of a visit there.
