Easter Bunny Parade And A Giveaway

The bunnies are hopping all over
Purple Chocolat Home
just like an Easter Parade.

Easter will be here before we know it and I
wanted to do a special giveaway before Easter.

My daughter-in-law that you saw me post about
who won the regional Bikram Yoga competition
(she took 9th place in Nationals, by the way!)
has an Etsy shop called
and she is giving away one of her gorgeous

(Isn't she just kissable?  My 3rd grandchild out of 6!)
And such a great model.  Looks like she is ready
for an Easter Parade.

And I am giving away a second one, so that is two
lucky people who will win.

and tell me which headband you would like to win.
These vintage inspired headbands
 would be wonderful to go along with a little
girl's Easter Dress.
2.  You must be a follower, new or old of
Purple Chocolat Home
(Hopefully I will reach 800 followers.)
3.  Winners will be picked randomly.
4.  I have to be able to get your email address to 
let you know you have won and to ship it to you.
5. Giveaway closes at midnight Sunday, April 10, 2011.

The bunnies are all gathered on my baking cabinet
in my kitchen.  This is such a fun place to display seasonal
items or to serve a great buffet.  This is my favorite 
cupboard or cabinet in the kitchen.  It is so fun to dress
up and play around with.

This faux chocolate bunny is great!
No one can bite his ears off!

These elegant ladies are all wrapped up in their fur coats
and finery and look ready for the Easter Parade.

I just adore her fur wrap and her bling.

These little tin bunnies are antique chocolate
molds that my friend Sharon gave me.

This is a great new cake stand in pretty pink.
It holds a jeweled egg box.
I have a thing for cake stands.

A couple of cute fluffy bunnies are 
loved by the little ones.

Joni my sister from Red Couch Recipes gave
me this gorgeous lavender glass egg years

Now that all of the bunnies have hopped out, it is time
to have some entertaining fun.

Hop along now, there is a lot to do before Easter.

I will also be posting this with Heart Of the Home's
Favorite Cupboard.

I will be hopping over to

Chocolat - French for Chocolate. I adored chocolate from a young age when I had to sneak in the cupboard to find where my mother had hidden the Nestle's Chocolate Chips. Having read about the famous chocolat shoppes in Paris, when I finally got there I was determined to try a chocolate from every Paris shoppe. I invite you to share my adventures in creating, in travel, and in life.
