case with this collection of German Easter candy containers.
Created by a home craft industry in the 1890s, they were made
to hold candy, with the head made as a little cover. Just this
year, several more of these bunnies have hopped home to our farm.
This large bunny started our collection. I had always coveted these
containers, but they were generally priced outside of my budget.
So, when I spied this one in a waste basket at a thrift sale, I was
quick to ask if I might lift her out and bring her home.
This sweet sitting bunny was my most recent find. I never fuss
if they have repair issues....that just meant a child had loved them.
This sweet bunny is smaller...this little friend has such a
purposeful expression. This one was an auction find.
for a reasonable price...if I find one for less than $30, it is mine!
There they all are on a bookshelf in our living room...my dear
little "hutch" of bunnies. 🐇💌
