Home May’d + Mint Bunny Morsels

April 22nd, 2011

Greetings on this Good Friday friends, we’re gearing up for the Easter weekend festivities, and off to my sister’s house for dinner on Sunday.  My sis lives over an hour away so we don’t get a chance to see each other as often as we should or could. 

There are many things my younger sister and I have in common, but the one thing we share is a love of vintage finds and chocolate mint.   In fact, a perfect afternoon for me would be sitting in her backyard, eating chocolate mints, and pouring over shelter magazines together.  That or going thrifting arm in arm.  

I was wandering the aisles of one of my favorite antique stores a few weeks ago and came across these sweet vintage bunny aluminum tins, so I thought I’d give them to my sis, but I couldn’t help making some chocolate mint Easter bunnies to go along with them !!
