Bunnies are packed and ? hibernating?

I spent last evening wrapping up the bunnies, well most of them. I had to get a bigger container to put everything in. I must admit, it was a little sad. Now, everything is back to "normal".
I was quite happy with myself yesterday too because I went for walk. I haven't been able to do that in over a year. It was so exciting for me to go walking...I used to walk 2 miles a day....today was 3 blocks, but hey, it is a start!
In trying to think of something to post today after all the Easter items, I was a bit at a loss. But when I took down the tree, I realized that I could post my old hat boxes. I received these from an elderly lady at church many years ago. And yep, there are hats inside of them. That will be another time....but the boxes are original.
These are stacked in a corner in our guest room. That room is Victorian style. I previously posted pictures of that room.Each box has its own label or name.....

This one is especially interesting, because it is a man's hat form.... I really do not collect hat boxes...(I say chuckling to myself, as I really don't collect "anything", maybe "they" collect me!)...so I don't know anything about them, except they are old and I like em!

Your hat boxes are wonderful! I have always heard if you have three or more of any one type of item, it is a collection. You have a lovely collection of hat boxes!

Good morning Ceekay! My Mother has a hat box collection as well, just like you, she's not a collector (ha ha) the collections find their way into her home :).

Congratulations on your first walk, I'm reminded of the old saying, you never know what you have until it's gone :). I bet your goal is that 2 mile mark and I for one will be praying for that day!

Beautiful post, thanks for sharing.

Kathi :)

Love your hat boxes! They look so fabulous all stacked together. Ooh, I can't wait until you show us the hats inside! I Magnin was a very fancy store here in Seattle many many years ago.

Oh, I love those genuine vintage hatboxes! When can we see the hats?? Maybe Show and Tell tomorrow?? Hint-hint!

I'm glad you are able to start walking again.

I put away all my Easter stuff too, and I miss it!
