Easter will definitely be different this year! Having Easter dinner with my husband only; no family or friends coming to visit. I decorated for Easter the end of March. But, alas no one will be visiting to see my decorations. So, I thought I would share them with you today.   Since I couldn't find a straw hat for the large bunny in my front yard, I decided to leave the St Patrick's hat and tie on the bunny. Bunny Tips: 1. Don't put all your eggs in one basket. 2. Everyone needs a friend who is all ears. 3.  There's no such thing as too much candy.  4. All work and no play can make you a basket case.   5. A cute tail attracts a lot of attention.  6. Everyone is entitled to a bad hare day.  7. Let happy thoughts multiply like rabbits.  8. Some body parts should be floppy.  9. Keep your pa...
