For those of you that mediate with me, you will know I love to decorate.
Easter is one occasion that gets me going. I have been collecting rabbits and chicks for years and now they form a Easter Parade on my dining room table. Leading the parade this year are Mr. & Ms. Bunny, who are chalkware. Vintage chalkware is made of plaster of paris and decorated with watercolors. Chalkware dates from the 1910s to 1940s. In another room, I have my Mrs. Bunny 1950s plastic blow mold that lights up and my vintage bunny holding a pink bulb in his mouth. It should be an orange bulb since carrots are not pink but close enough.
