Show and Tell Friday!


Welcome to “Show and Tell Friday!” Do you have something special to share with us? It could be a trinket from grade school, a piece of jewelry, or a treasured collection. Look around your home for something to share; dig through those boxes in your closet if you have to! Share photos and the story that goes with your special item.


Bunny Collection
Today I am going to show you my bunny collection. Right now everything is in a corner of my dining room hutch, but I bring it all out in the spring.

Teaset
A miniature tea set.

Bunnies
Bunny figurines. I like to fill them with Easter candy.

Bunny Teapot
A small teapot that was a gift from my mother-in-law.

Bunnies
A bunny and chick salt and pepper shakers.

Dishes
My favorite part of my collection are these Royal Doulton Bunnykin dishes. The girls and Benjamin each have a plate, bowl and cup.

Dishes
My mom also has a set for each of my siblings and myself, and my Dad ate oatmeal in a Bunnykin bowl every morning growing up. In fact, he wore the picture right off the bottom!

Dishes
Little bunnies race around the edges.

Dishes
Each dish as a different scene.

What a wonderful life the Bunnykins have!

Those Bunnykim dishes are so cute! I've never heard of them before. I think it's fun that your dad wore the picture off with his oatmeal!

You're really prompt - 9:00 on the dot!

Hi Kelly! I just love to read your blog. You are a real inspiration to me. I am amazed how you manage to do all that you do....and do it so well.

Last week-end I made the recipe for the "Chewy Oatmeal Cookies" that you have on one of your posts. They were wonderful. I am making more tomorrow to take to Church on Sunday.

I also look forward to making some of the cards you have shown. They are so simple but very elegant looking....just my style.

Thanks for all the wonderful posts. You are my favorite blogger. :-) Debbi

Your bunnies are so sweet. I like bunnies too, but only have them out at Easter. If only we could have bigger houses!!

Bovey Belle said...

The Bunnykin dishes are quite collectable over here and of course, always remind me of Beatrix Potter.

We have plenty of bunnies on our land this year, and Honey-monster cat has been bringing them back (dead and alive!) to show us . . .

You have a lovely collection of bunny china.

Jewelgirl said...

I used to have a bunny collection, but I'm sad to say over the years alot was lost and broken or just worn out. I love your collection of bunny things! The dishes are very cute I have seen some pieces of that pattern in a few shops. My grandfather used to read me Peter Rabbit all the time, and I think that sparked my interest in bunnies.
Thank you for sharing your collection.

Pattie said...

Hi Kelli -

I collect bunnies, too! I knew there was a reason I like you (besides that fact that you're clever and creative and kind!) LOL! I also collect bird-things, so that little salt and pepper set really made me smile.

Those Bunnykins are just darling! No wonder you treasure the set.

PEA said...

Your little bunny tea set is just darling! Love all your collection!! I still have the Bunnykin bowl and cup set that Shawn had when he was a baby so it's over 30 years old now. I had received it as a baby shower gift when I was pregnant for him:-) xoxo

Simply Heart And Home said...

Kelli,

Your bunny collection is adorable! I've never seen the Bunnykin anything before. They are very sweet! I shall have to keep a lookout for them. Doesn't spring feel like a gazillion light years away?

Hi Kelli :) They are so, so sweet! Love you, Q

Mommy said...

Oh the Royal Doulton Bunnykin brings back memories. I used to eat my creal in that bowl! I don't know why I always grabbed that bowl in the morning. I think I ate in it until I was about 11 years old, LOL!

Charlotte said...

What cute Bunny dishes. I love them all.

Heather said...

What a sweet bunny collection you have! We have seen bits and pieces of it before here and there, but the whole collection is quite impressive! Since bunnies are my worst enemy in the garden, it would be a bit of a stretch to say that I love bunnies, but they are cute! We love our Bunnykins dishes too - a good friend of the family gave a set to each of the children at birth, and they are so pretty.

suzeeez said...

I love your bunny dishes with the different scenes ... adorable :o) Sue

The Liberty Belle said...

Your bunnies are adorable. I especially like your Bunnykin set. I went with Wedgwood's Peter Rabbit china for my own little Sugar Lumpkin but find Royal Doulton's Bunnydin collection very tempting.

GrumpyAngel said...

I LOVE YOUR COLLECTION! The bunnies are so cute. I found you through Carla's blog, and I want to join for this coming Friday. Such a fun idea. And it looks like I'm lucky #50. Awesome!

Mrs. Staggs said...

I really like your Bunnykins dishes. They've always appealed to me too, along with other bunny things. My son used to collect bunny things too, starting with a small Holland Lop rabbit that he had when he was small. It was a white rabbit, named Magic. She was very sweet.
It's very cool here today, and we had a bunch of rain fall last night. Fall's on the way!

Jodi said...

Love the Bunnykin - they have always reminded me very much of Potter's Peter Rabbit.
