Bunny planter with sprigs of sweet smelling clover from my yard
Do you remember these planters that were also an animal figurine? This one was very old and free. You know I love the price. It sits in my kitchen window. It makes the place feel homey to me. I don't ever remember anything like this sitting on my mother's kitchen window sill. Maybe I saw these in the homes of aunts or grandmothers when I was young. It feels familiar.
Although the bunny is a symbol of fertility, and some people use them to "advertise" less-than-lovely themes, I still take them for what they are, symbolic, YES. But, they are symbols from a time-gone-by when all of nature had meaning.
Somehow, this little girl, new as she is to my home, sort of completes the window sill. Even though she was meant to hold a plant, she just gets little snips of flowers.
What do you have in your home that feels-like-home or familiar, whether you remember it or not? What feels-like-home that you wish you had? What in other homes do you see that makes the house feel-like-home, even if you don't want it in your home?
