EASTER MANTEL WITH WHIMSEY

Easter Mantle

Easter bunnies have already shown up to hide eggs on our mantel.

Some of their painted eggs are still hanging on the line to dry.

But that hasn’t stopped them from getting a head start on the great egg-hiding adventure.

They are even hiding them in trees.  I hope we don’t have any high winds before Easter.

In the middle of all of those eggs, I noticed something strange.

What is the meaning of the Mad Hatter’s hat on our mantel?

The ears sticking up through the hat (and the wiggling in the grass) were a sure sign that Mr. Rabbit had run off with the Mad Hatter’s hat.  Instead of helping with the egg hiding, that rabbit is hiding from the Mad Hatter in the grass on our mantel!

Then, I noticed that this elaborate Easter egg had a chain attached to it.

When I examined it, I found that it wasn’t an egg after all, but Mr. Rabbit’s pocket watch.  I think that rabbit is late for a very important date (possibly with a very mad, hatless Mad Hatter!

Only time will tell whether or not Mr. Rabbit will be able to conceal himself from the Mad Hatter.

I’m so glad to have you visit me.  laurie
