My New Easter Bunny

Hey there!  How's it going?  Are you all ready for Easter?  I can't believe it's only a week away!  I'm so thankful that it's in April this year, Easter in March just seems entirely too early for me, how about you?

This year I'm really trying not to buy any new holiday decor.  This may sound silly to some but to decorating addicts like me, this is a big deal.  If I had the storage space and extra cash, I could buy all new holiday decorations for every holiday every year.  I've never done this but believe me, I could.  

Over the past 11 years we've been married  I've picked up a few things each year for the holidays (except Christmas, I think I buy like 1 million decorations each year for Christmas ;)  that's a whole other post).  

Anyway, I've got plenty to work with for each holiday so I'm trying to work with what I've got and not add to my stash.  However, I allow myself one item per holiday if I find something really great.  So much for holding myself accountable, right? :)

This Easter I really thought I was going to make it on my own stash, I'm not really into the whole bunny and chicks thing.  Then I saw this:

I am a sucker for burlap and script printed fabric....

Plus, the Easter eggs are perfectly colored!

Who could resist that face??

I found him at TJ Maxx (big surprise) and I actually passed him up the first time I saw him sticking to my no new holiday decor rule.


he was there when I went back (that never happens at TJ's)!  And, this time I had a gift card that was a birthday present burning a hole in my pocket.  So really, I didn't even buy him, he was a birthday present!  So it kind of doesn't count as me buying a new holiday decoration, right? ;)

It was meant to be! :)

Did you buy any Easter bunnies this season or are you trying to cut back like me?


  1. Totally doesn't count as you buying a holiday decoration! That is the cutest bunny! I'm a sucker for bunnies in general and the burlap makes this one so cute. Glad you didn't pass it by and decided to share it with us instead!

  2. I find it so hard to decorate for all the seasons. I do have a couple of bunnies and I just need to get them out and create something. No I am not buying anything new. I love your bunny though and good for you for picking him up. Hugs, Marty

  3. Kate I saw those bunnies in our Home Goods and thought they where super cute!!

  4. Nope, he was definitely a gift. You just had to go pick him up because they don't wrap or ship at TJ Maxx.


  5. I'm trying to not buying anything new for as long as possible, because REALLY I've got way too much STUFF as it is. I don't need new clothes OR new home decor. But if you have a gift card it doesn't count. It was a gift to you - no cash out of your pocket is a FREE PASS to get whatever you find that is awesome to spend it on.

  6. I want one too!! I love it. I am going to have to check my two stores.

  7. Adorable! I'm not buying anything this year. I have a stash and haven't even used it recently. My mother passed away just prior to Easter Sunday and, even though it's been a few years, I'm still not into the Easter decor like I was.
    So glad to see what others are doing though!


  8. That is one adorable bunny -- I can see why you bought him -- I've not seen one like that! TJ Maxx has surprised me many times with their decorations!


I L-O-V-E love your comments! :) I read and try to respond to every one! Thanks for taking your precious time to leave me a comment.
