It’s that time of year – rabbit time! There are graphics of rabbits every which way you look and it’s easy to understand why. These little critters are the ultimate symbols of fertility and spring, which is why they are the perfect animal to represent the litany of holidays that happen this season.
As the proud owner of a rescued and hyper intelligent bun – I can also say that’s it’s the perfect time of year to also highlight rabbit adoptions. So many people go out to pets stores and purchase baby bunnies for Easter, only to find within a few weeks that these highly functioning pets are no easy charge. They require a minimum of four hours of socialization a day, lots of socialization, a special diet and a veterinarian with specific training for small mammals. It’s no easy task to be the guardian of a bunny!
That’s why in drafting my favorite finds – I chose to highlight rabbits. They make incredible pets – and are sure to give you a daily dose of cute overload – if you know what you’re getting yourself into. So here’s my public service announcement of the day: If you, or someone you know, is considering getting a rabbit for Easter, do your research first on what it will take by visiting the House Rabbit Society website. Read all about our bunny adventures on the Peanut Loves Butter blog.

I love love love playing up each season in my home using knick knacks and materials that are already strewn about our place.
So when curating the look of my home for Easter and spring, I thought it would be fun to put a creative twist on the traditional symbols of the season.
Can you spot the themes?
For this fun and vivid display I collected all the bird-like objects that I had dispersed throughout our apartment and brought them together on a runner of bright green moss. Compiling items with a similar shape, theme, color, texture or size is a great way to make an “instant collection” with pieces you already own. Not a dime spent here!
I’ve been obsessed with brass vintage figurines this past year. Having found a set of bunny statues a couple years back – I have found myself moving them around the apartment at the shift of each season. But with it being spring – they are front and center on my side tables.
Feathers feathers feathers! They’re so easy to find and there are endless ways of using them! Whether collected in vases or strewn across the fireplace mantle with twine and washi tape – these natural (and trendy!) wonders add an airy texture to any space.
These pillows! I just couldn’t stop myself when they appeared in an email newsletter from fab.com. These unique animal plushies are created when artist Kristin Loffer Theiss draws out the image using thread. She then scans and prints the design onto the fabric and stuffs each with filling and love! The result is a collection of unbearably adorable pillows! Here I’ve collected several of the more spring-like animals together to sit upon my re-upholstered vintage chair. Read the rest of this entry »
It’s not easy being green. Or is it? When hunting for new furniture for my apartment – the first place I’ll go is thrift and antique stores to see what I can salvage and update for my abode. Why run to Target or Ikea if there’s tons of gorgeous furniture already out there?!
I came across a set of these vintage chairs while going on a fabric run. A mega steal – the pieces were discounted – costing me only $9 each! After a thorough inspection and sniff test I decided they were a deal not to be passed up. Besides – I had to replace the rickety rocking chair I had in my living room. Or at least, that’s what I convinced myself of! All the chairs would need is a good cleaning, airing, and brightening up. Using some leftover Yolo paint, David and I taped off the wood and gave it a fresh coat.
The result is a fusion of old world craftsmanship with a modern whitewash finish. They’ve become an instant centerpiece in our place and will see many years of heartfelt Scrabbling, reading and pet napping. And people say it’s not easy being green.
