Warm, fuzzy, different

Published April 4, 2007


The chocolate bunny may rule the Easter basket, but when it comes to the cuddle factor, nothing beats the real thing. Instead of filling your kiddies' baskets with sugary sweets, consider an addition to the family. Contact the Humane Society of Tampa Bay to learn about proper care and to help determine whether your family should adopt a bunny. Call (813) 876-7138.

Easter. It greets us when there's only a tickle of spring in the air and blossoms are all around. It's a time of possibilities. The holiday also marks the time for honored family traditions, celebrating and gift giving. With a sunny forecast for this year's holiday, Sunday, it's a good time to put a twist on some favorite Easter traditions.

There's something about spring that brings out a woman's girlie side. And Easter baskets need not be just for kids. Your girlie-girls will thank you for a handmade goddess basket full of diva stuff. Pictured: flowered basket, $9; emery board, pumice stone, back massager and Diva Sleeping night mask, each $1 at Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Store.

Surprise family and friends with an Edible Arrangement. Visit to order online or find a location in the Tampa Bay area. Pictured: Hearts and Berries bouquet, $58.
