~DOING MY BUNNY HOP~



Hello !! Girls well you heard me mention how I love to go to our Hospice thrift store here...Well today I did my weekly trip and had to show you one of the things that Hopped home with me... Is this not the sweetest Cake stand? of course it is...It's brand new still in the box...Our Hospice have so many things that is supported by our local merchant's All items donated from Wal-Mart, K-Mart and local gifts shops... So any items that our stores could not sell last season is stored in the Hospice warehouse and they bring it out durning the season...This is a huge store...I just love their cause and what they also do with the monies they make...If you or a family member have ever had to use their wonderful service you know how caring and wonderful this group really is....


Look at this cutie bunny running through the cabbage this is the front...



This is the bunny hiney...WOW!! I have a thing about Bunnies Hiney's this week don't I...




Now you can see the little ribbon that goes through the basket edge....


It came with these little eggs holders and the eggs...Look at the basket top on it...SWEET !!! They are 3 Bunnies egg holders...and three basket ones...




Bunny with a flower pot...


Butterflies basket with egg...




Basket with a bow...



Basket with a flower...



Now is this not sweet...Thanks for coming by and seeing my wonderful Hospice find today...Now if you have a shop in your area PLEASE go and help support their great cause...and also you too can bring homes some of the best things...I give them all my paper bags and plastic ones I don't use...All my old newspapers for wrapping...OH my I almost forgot to tell you what I paid for this $5.50....also got another Ironstone soup tureen for $ 2.50 and 3 little basket salt cellars for .75 cents that I want to use in a Tablescape...


Oh I am not a spokeperson for Hospice but seen the care they gave my Brother Dennis before he died and my Mama....


May all you you have a Blessed and Great day....


Hugs and smiles Gl♥ria

What gorgeous find. I am jealous. Love them all. I didn't know hospice had a thrift store. I will check and see if there's one around here. They really are a wonderful organization. I really do love your finds, they are true treasures. Hugs, Marty

Gloria...this is absolutely adorable! And what a fantastic price! I love his little cotton tail and foot stick out the back! :-) And it came with those darling eggs!!! Looking forward to seeing the salt cellars, too! BTW, did you ever use your swan salt cellars in a tablescape? Sorry if I missed it...I can't get around to all of them now like I once could. Susan

Gloria, that is just adorable. You're lucky to have that store near you, and hospice is so important to so many so it for a worthy cause, to boot! ~ Robyn

What a cute plate stand, I can see why it hopped home with you. I will be looking forward to seeing the other items your purchased.

I agree with you, Hospice is such a wonderful organization. My grandmother volunteers for Hospice, and she is 88 years old. It is amazing what wonderful care they give to their patients.

Have a wonderful weekend, Nicole

Connie said...

I love your colorful eggs but that cake pedestal is catchin' my eye, chickee. Cute!

Kris said...

Oh' that is just the sweetest. The plate was cute enough by itself, but then you get the bunny/basket egg holders.....with eggs!! Perfect for your Easter displays.

I would be shopping that store daily and probably be broke. LOL

Have a happy day

Kris

Deb said...

too cute! I love all the bunnies, love the music too

Connie said...

They are all such darling bunnies. What a collection!

Diane @ Four Paws and Co said...

Gloria,
I can't believe the luck you have finding these awesome treasures, not to mention the bargains! (I would have bought it too...)

I finally bought a tureen! I was doing the happy dance at Home Goods today, when I found a pretty white tureen with the ladle & plate for $12.99. (I thought I misread the price & had my friend double check it. ☺)

Hugs!
Diane

Chandy said...

My goodness, that is a darling cake stand! I love it and those egg holders are just the cutest!

Coloradolady said...

I would love to shop there! How fun.

Martha said...

What a great find! Love it!

Chari said...

Mornin' Sweetie...

Goodness gracious...great balls of fire!!! Girl, you made out with the best Easter treasure find ever!!! That bunny cake plate is absolutely precious!!! Can't believe they wanted only $5.50 for it! Hehe...I think you do have a "thing" for bunny butts, Girlfriend! Hehe!!! Butt they are soooo darn cute!!! Love all of the detailing...that pretty basket weave on the top of the plate...but ohhhh, my favorite thing about it that pretty lavender ribbon weaving in and out around the side! That just makes it!!! Hey what do ya say...let's get that cake out of the freezer...put it on that pretty little bunny cake plate...and have some!!! Hehe!!!

Girlfriend...I totally admire and I'm so thankful for the work that Hospice does! They came and helped out with my Grandma...the dearest, sweetest, and most caring people ever! It's always such a hard time but they sure do make the load a bit more bearable!!! Wished our Hospice service here did a store like that! Hmmm...if I were a bit younger, sure would be fun to start one for them!

Well Sweetie...hope your Saturday is filled with pretty pink pleasures!!!
Love ya,
Chari

Edie Marie's Attic said...

OMG! Gloria that is the cutest thing that I have seen! ANd the price! Incredible!! That's the find of the month girl! Thanks for sharing it, and can't wait to see the other things.
I stopped over to Dot's and told her I think she has a real problem with glasses now. She needs help girl! We need to do an intervention me thinks.

Have a great weekend

Hugs, Sherry

What a great find! And what prices, you are the queen of bargain hunting! Hospice is a wonderful organization, and I think it's great that local merchants donate unsold goods to them instead of shipping them off to be resold. Lucky for you and great for your community! Kathy

Justine/Justiney/Tiney said...

Oh wow, more great finds for you, Gloria!!!!!!!!!! Those bunny egg holders are just adorable!

How is baby Kyra doing??????

Justine :o )

Dear Gloria, I wish our local hospice had a gift shop here ... I would be a big customer for sure. My mother's care during the last six months of her life was so much richer and caring than anything I had ever seen....bless all hospice workers.

Nancy Jane said...

Love your post and your shopping for a cause. I had to laugh when I stopped here...we're on similar bunny wave lengths! Even our music is the same. (I was very disappointed that the Gene Autry version wasn't working.) Have a delightful weekend...Nancy

Smilingsal said...

What adorable bunnies you found at the Hospice thrift shop. It sounds like a great place to shop. I have never seen one of their shops around here, but I totally agree with you that they are a wonderful organization and do so much good work.

What a wonderful find! This is just too adorable! Your bargain hunting skills are just incredible. I don't think they have a shop like this around here, but we have a Goodwill and Dollar Store and a couple second hand stores.

prof en retraite said...

Hi Gloria...I love your cake stand and the bunny egg holders! I don't think our hospice has a thrift store, but that would be a great cause to support. My mom was there for a short period and they did their best to take care of us all. Hope you are having a great weekend...Debbie

mishebe said...
