Peter Rabbit's Cottontail Farm

I enjoyed creating Peter Rabbit's Cottontail Farm so much!       

I had so many idea's running thru my head on how I would design his farm that I had to use the big cabinet in the dining room to make a place for my vision.

The first shelf of his farm that I want to share with you has lots of fun Easter decor on it.      

Peter Rabbit plants McGregor's seed on the farm.     (I found theses fun seed packets on Pinterest.)   

  I  have spring pea's displayed in a ceramic radish dish. 

Here's Peter Rabbit in person! 

   My floral design is made using a vintage stamp holder that I painted pink.     I found the glass vases one year at Roundtop  and bought them not knowing if they would fit my holder or not.    I had to spread out the clamps out  a little to make them!

This cabinet normally holds my collection of Desert Rose dishes.     I put most of them away til after Easter,   but left a few out  to use on "the farm"

I've collected asparagus for quite a while so you will see them throughout Cottontail Farm

I hung a fabric carrot garland across the top  of the shelf and here you see another seed packet

Are you ready to see the next part of the farm?

The cloth carrots I made are displayed in green depression glass

Pea's and cauliflower are some of the other veggies that are grown at Cottontail Farm

I will use this asparagus platter when I serve Easter dinner well as some of the other pieces in the cabinet.

Are you ready to see the next shelf? we go!

This shelf has the asparagus cookie jar on it that matches the tea pot you saw on the first shelf.       Peter Rabbit has a petting zoo and carrot patch on the Cottontail Farm.

The Cottontail Farms sign and a set of asparagus s & p shakers.     Who's that peeking out from behind the sign?

You have to be a rabbit to live on the farm.......Peter hasn't realized this is a chicken!

Now we'll take a look at the bottom shelf......

I kept the shelf above it with a light hand.......and that's hard for me to do!     I wanted to be able to see the cabbage patch that I created for the bottom shelf thru the shelf above it.

If you're thinking that you've see the cabbage patch before,     you are right!      I had it on the family room dining table for a while,   but moved it to Cottontail Farm when I decided to put a fresh flower bouquet on the table.       (I'll share that change with you another time.)

I wonder if Peter will ever realize she is a chicken.....not a rabbit!

I think this piece of faux celery looks so real.......found it at a yard sale

The faux onions look pretty real too!

I hope to share the Easter mantel with you soon and also how I plan to have the table set for Easter dinner.

    I enjoyed your visit so much......come back soon!
