my UN-planned shopping spree (picture heavy)
I've been trying to find a curio cabinet to put in my Dad's room that I'm redoing (maybe I should start calling it Zorro's room now). Checking Craigslist, I saw one for sale by a dealer in my big, favorite antique mall. So off I went yesterday to get it. I did, and its perfect for my Cherubs, and little bird, collectibles! Naturally I just had to spend almost 2 hrs walking the whole place and seeing what the 500 dealers had. (Luvs, wish you were with me again...we had such a great time that day.)
I went a bit crazy....ok, more than a bit...buying all this Bunny and Easter stuff I saw! I keep telling myself I need LESS not more, but Myself just doesn't listen!
I'm definitely sunk when I see 'crackled' bunnies and these sure spoke to me.
A lovely little hand-painted Goebel Bunny on Egg, from Germany, made in 1980.
Easter Bunny Village House (thank you, NanaK. for "enabling" me by seeing your Village! LOL. At least its purple) The tiny bunny selling flowers out of his egg shop looks cute with it I think. That was $1! And would you believe the bunny decoration on the left was just $2.50, and the seller had included a tiny bag with the little chicks each holding a basket of decorated eggs.
Easter Chicks! I had just said I'd look for some for next Easter...but guess I should have said THIS Easter. The single chick is by Lefton and I'd seen it on eBay but too much with shipping. Same with the planter Chick.
It has a crackled finish! I'd seen them on eBay in pink, blue, and yellow, but shipping made me not buy one... tho I was really tempted. So finding this white one was great. And how could I resist the trio?
Porcelain egg hinged box with lilacs, little plush bunny ornament, and a pretty trio of little birds for my collection that has nothing to do with Easter.
Metal wall basket with hand-painted bunny, $4. I thought it was really pretty.
BIG Bunnies. The one sitting up is almost 14" high and the laying one is 10" long by 7" high.
Don't ask me WHERE the heck I plan to put these two, I just wasn't leaving them behind tho!!
Pair of Quail for my Christmas decorating as I have the 'white' collection of things I love so. THe pair was
$2. WOW, guess the dealer just wanted them gone asap.
The Old World Bunny was a very unexpected treat to find. He MATCHES two I bought years ago!! In the second photo, he's the one in the middle. The photo doesn't show it but they are lightly finished with sparkly diamond dust.
