Aren't these little white rabbits the sweetest?

They looked so lonely sitting on a shelf at the thrift store when
I found them a few years ago.
I couldn't leave them behind.

This morning, they inspired a quick Easter brunch table setting.

Green 'lettuce' dishes over creamy white seashell plates
are topped off with a dainty shell bowl.

Sweet little chocolate bunnies
hold place cards or a pretty Easter Greeting for your guests.

Pastel colored eggs & gorgeous lavender...

are perfect for a quick centerpiece.

Brunch is served!

I took photos for this post with 2 different cameras.
One was a kodak digital camera and one was my trusty iphone3gs.
I have used my iphone for my blog photos since I started blogging~ but thought maybe I
should try a regular camera at some point.
Can you tell which is which?

I wanted to say a big THANK YOU to all of my blog friends!
I am so tickled that you enjoy French Country Cottage and I appreciate
all of your support and friendship~ it really means so much to me!

I am knee- deep in painting right now...
I apologize for the quick post .
I hope to be sharing a finished product soon!!
Hope your week is going great!

    I have to admit and can't tell the difference between the camera and the iphone photos. They all look nice though and bigger for some reason. Do you still think that you're going to do a camera exchange?
