Show and Tell Friday - Chocolate Bunny

Kelli from Kelli's House hosts Show and Tell Friday. If you have something special to share, this is the place to show it. It could be a trinket from grade school, a piece of jewelry, or a treasured collection. Go to her place to join in the fun!

Last week, a blogger (sorry, but I don't remember who) showed her faux "chocolate" bunny that she bought at Dollar Tree. I dragged my husband there the very next day. They had four left. I bought this one and placed her in my cloche. (She has a pink ribbon on her neck, so it must be a she.)


I gave her some grass to stand on, and put my mother's black plate underneath. I do love the pretty edges of this plate.


Doesn't she look sweet? It's a good thing the cloche protects her, as my grandchildren might be tempted to nibble!

Susan has presented me with The Daydreamer Award, a special award given by  A Southern Daydreamerer along with her sincerest thanks for my making so many comments on her blog. Imagine! I'm being thanked for talking so much! Thank you, Susan, for this beautiful gift.

Sorry, but I cannot share this with you, as it is against Susan's rules.  

✣ ✣ ✣ ✣ ✣


Vikki from Magnolia Memories gave me the Lemonade award for “great attitude or gratitude.” I’m honored to receive it, Vikki. Thank you.


I'm supposed to "nominate up to ten" bloggers to receive this award. As I am a rule bender--never breaker, I will offer the Lemonade award to any person leaving a comment with “a great attitude.” If you would like it, just mention me when you post it on your blog (after you've left that "great" comment!)

✣ ✣ ✣ ✣ ✣

Now, for anyone interested in a FREE BOOK, check my sidebar for my giveaway.

 I hope to see you on Blue Monday!

Easter bunny time already!My mouth is watering. This is the only time of the year that I really indulge in chocolate, lots of it! The cloche is a good idea not just for grandchildren either!

Karen at Nittany Inspirations said...

Cute display and no calories. I'll have to check out the Dollar Tree, too.

Dixie said...

Sally - I've decided to forego the faux chocolate bunnies... with my passion for chocolate I'm afraid I'll sleepwalk and eat one! But yours... beautiful...

I love your new header... that lily pad and bloom... magnifico!

blessings. Dixie

sara said...

if that bunny was at my house.....it would be missing the ears! :)

Neas Nuttiness said...

Instead of a comment showing great gratitude, may I suggestion another blogger with an incredible attitude?

I'll be right back with her "address"!

xinex said...

Hi Sally! That faux bunny chocolate looks good enough to eat. It looks very cute the way it is displayed....Christine

Neas Nuttiness said...

I'm back. If I had to nominate just one person in the entire world, for their sense of gratitude, it would be for Sarah over at:
Gitzengirl.blogspot.com
Daily, she overcomes a debilitating disease, and seeks out the good things in life. She humbles me on a regular basis, and I'm a better person because of it!

Sally:

I loved your post because I am always saying...I saw it on a blog but don't remember which one...and I get so put out with myself AND I have so far bought some dishes, a book and a sign all because a blogger let me have a peek at them. And now I want a forever chocolate bunny too!!

Have A Fantastic Friday

bj said...

Good morning, Silly little Sally girl.....me? perfect? Oh brother...that turkey story is but a drop in the bucket of my train wrecks in the kitchen. I once made a pie and then went in the other room to do something...I saw smoke coming from the kitchen and went tearing back in there...yanked open the oven and there was my cuptowel, ablaze...and my pie was still sitting on the counter..uncooked!! A young bride story!! I know you have one, too!!And, I wanna hear it !!
NOW...I love your Cho. bunny..he...oh, excuse me...SHE looks so cute on your mom's plate.
Happy day,
bj

Your display is adorable! I hope they have one left for me at the Dollar Tree. (You could have saved this for Pink Saturday...LOL). Congrats on your awards! ~ Robyn

Elizabeth said...

Love your bunny, Sally! If I didn't know, I'd think you were protecting some eal chocolate from being eaten on you!

Hootin' Anni said...

Cute bunny! I like that it's under a cheese server glass like that...it makes it quite special for the decor.

My Show n Tell is all about afghans today. If you can get a chance, do stop by. Happy Friday.

Barbara H. said...

You're getting some great use out of that cloche! That bunny does look very eatable.

Gattina said...

That's a lovely decoration !

Carla said...

She looks good enough to eat:)
I, too, would be tempted to try:)

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Hi Sally, What a neat Easter bunny... I like the way you decorated her... Great idea!!!!!

Spring is HERE...
Hugs,

Clif said...

Like your grandchildren I might be tempted. Keep it covered!...Your comment on my blog is not seen by me as being negative--just truthful! Keep smiling.

Linda C said...

Looks good enough to eat! I love how you have your bunny displayed!:)

Happy Friday!

Dianne said...

Love the faux chocolate bunnies for decorations too! I like how you displayed yours too.
Thanks for stopping by my blog. Have a great weekend.

♥ Kathy said...

I can't believe that's not a real chocolate bunny! She's really pretty in your cloche :) Congrats on your awards ♥

char72 said...

I love how you displayed the chocolate bunny. I have a chocolate bunny similar to yours. I'll have to get creative and not just plop it on the shelf at Easter time like I always do.
Congrats on the well-deserved awards.
Charlotte

~CC Catherine said...

Sally, I'm loving that Dollar Store bunny... =) And, under that Cloche, it's just GORGEOUS., adding the black charger/plate just creates an even more stunning look. Totally lovin it! Did you take the photo on your banner of the blog today? It is SO pretty! ~CC Catherine

Debbie J. said...

Your bunny looks ver elegant under that glass!

If the dil doesn't want the deer, it comes down anyway!

Karen said...

I love your Easter Bunny---but it looks so real, I want a nibble of it myself!! :o)
Karen

Lisa said...

Aww! She's so cute, especially under the cloche.

I should make a trip to my Dollar Tree and see if they have any left.

Hi Sally,

Your bunny looks absolutely springy sweet!

Blondie's Journal said...

Hi Sally,

I have been crazy busy and am now catching up. I'm sorry I can't participate in Book It Thursday, I just can't come up with a book. I'm sure I have read some pretty bad books and I mostly muddle through them hoping they redeem themselves somewhere near the end, but I have drawn a blank.

Also read through your last few posts. You are really sentimental to keep that needle and safety pin all these years after your grandfather reupholsterd the chair. I imagine you might have been facinated watching him do his handiwork maybe? Maybe you are a ratpacker like me!! It was a cute story.

I love your bunny. I would rush right over to the Dollar Tree but I have sworn off chocolate. I know your bunny is faux, however anything that resembles choclolate, even commercials and recipes on blogs get my mouth watering. I'm serious, I have a real problem and I have banned chocolate from the house!

Thanks for commenting on my tablescape. I'm with you, I can only take so much of white.

xoxo
Jane

Spruce Creek Farm said...

You really do learn something new everyday! I just called them glass domes; but now I know it is offically called a doche!

Heather said...

your bunny looks very pretty! i love the grass. and that plate has gorgeous edges!

Mrs.T said...

How lovely! I need to get over to the Dollar Tree! This is the best sort of chocolate bunny for me.

Thanks for stopping by my kitchen table and leaving a sweet comment. Come by any time. My posting time is limited, but there's plenty to read in the archives.

God bless,
Mrs.T

Jane said...

Thank you for visiting my blog and sharing our interest in books. I like your bunny and especially the beautiful edge on the plate. My mother used to get us things like that in a real basket at Easter. One thing she got that it is hard to find anymore and that is a hollow, decorated sugar egg that had a carboard scene inside. Have you ever seen one?

Ashley ~ said...

I love your bunnies, and I must admit, I'm tempted to take a little nibble. (SMILE)

Elena said...

Your bunny is so cute! What a great idea. Thanks for sharing with us today. Elena

Kim said...

I love the decoration. The little details you added are perfect. Thanks for sharing!

jeanne said...

Sally I left this morning for therapy and Deborah wasn't up because her power went out. She is up now.

Your Bunny looks so real I have a craving for chocolate. NOW! he looks fabulous in the cloche. Waaaaa I do not have a cloche. I want one so I better get looking when I am up to it> LOL.

Congrats on your awards Sally. You are so great about visiting faithfully and you deserve the recognition. If I didn't see your comment I would think you must be ill or away. Smile. Is this positive enough???

Hugs...Jeanne

Bellamere Cottage said...

I love your chocolate bunny! I bought a similar one last year for my daughter at Tuesday Morning! It's nice not to have that chocolate temptation and still have the "look"........

I loved the story about your pin and needle. Maybe I'll blog about that one day too. My dad was always making tools and such for specific needs. Gosh I miss that kind of thing.......such a different time. Seems they have a tool for everything now. I have a screw that my dad made into a hook......I don't know why it makes me so happy to have it, but I love it! :-)

Many blessings,
Spencer

salmagundi said...

Sorry, I haven't been around much lately. Life has gotten in the way, and I haven't had as much computer time lately. Hopefully, things will change. I've seen those choco rabbits, and they really are cute; aren't they? Yours looks great in your cloche. Sally

Sandi@ My Yellow Door said...

Hi Sally,
I love your humor! Congratulations on winning your awards! I love your bunny too! I have a real chocolate bunny sitting under my dome. I'm afraid he may not make it till Easter though as he could very well get eaten! I have a 'healthy attitude' for chocolate! Does that constitute having an attitude of gratitude? I love chocolate! *smile* Have a wonderful Spring day.

Blessings,
Sandi

Beth at Aunties said...

Congratulations on your awards.. you spread such cheer ...you deserve them!
I hurried over to 2 dollar trees and was too late! :-) Yours looks so cute.

Beth at Aunties said...

I do wish I had some of both! I have whooping cough and my throat and chest are begging for some good old comfort soup! ;-)

Scrapdolly said...

Love that little bunny

Judith said...

I don't know about your grandchildren but I could just put my hand through the screen and grab a bit to taste - she looks delicious!! LOL take care, Judith

That is a very unusual bunny. I've never seen anything like it except real chocalate ones. How lucky you were. Whenever I go looking for something like that, I can't find it.

Sally, I thought the bunny was a real chocolate bunny! He's so cute! I love the way he is displayed.

I saw you comment on Jeanne's blog about finding a link to my blog - I think for Favorite Family Foto Friday.

Come on over!
