Bunny Tales

Hello dear friends, I hope you are having a wonderful day.
I had a great Spring Break week! While I was off I did some Easter decorating. After I do a little more fruffing, I'll give you a pulled back shot. Until then, I thought I'd give you closeups of some of my favorite little bunnies.

I won't call these my "favorites" too loudly, or the other bunnies on the block might get jealous.

That jealousy could easily lead to some sort of cross-country crime spree, like egging houses, which would not be pretty.
So mum's the word, okay?

Pack up all your cares and woe...

When the three o'clock bell sounded this afternoon, the teachers beat the buses out of the school parking lot. No more papers, no more books, no more students' dirty least for a week anyway. Spring Break couldn't come at a better time. I'm going to use the coming week to relax and recharge. I think I might even try to unplug.
I'll check back in after the break. Happy Day!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

We've been doing a little favor making again, this time for St. Paddy's Day. I took this cute vintage image I had and copied it onto cream colored card stock. I found these fun little shamrock rings at the bakery (they use them as cupcake decorations), cut a slit through the card, and pushed the ring back through the opening so that the shamrock would be flush with the card. I added some ribbon for embellishment and, voila! These are intended for my daughter's fellow ballerinas at dance class. We don't want anyone getting pinched if we can help it. No biting would also be nice, but these are three-year-olds that we are talking about, so all bets are off. Hope you all have a fun day too!

Happy Hour

It's 38 degrees outside with a possibility of snow flurries. Perfect weather for eating ice cream out of a pretty dish.
I bought this stemware several years ago at Target. It was in a box set of four, with each glass a different color (pink, blue, green, yellow) and etched with polka dots. I love them all, but the pink is my favorite... of course.
Happy Pink Saturday!

Pop by the blog of our wonderful hostess Beverly for a complete list of today's Pink Saturday participants. It's sure to be a treat.

Shop Update

I finally found some time to make some charm bracelets for my little shop. I haven't had anything new in there since before Christmas. It's amazing what I can accomplish once I get off the sofa. LOL! Hope you have a wonderfully productive day... on the sofa or elsewhere.

One, Two, Button Your Shoe...

Hello friends, and welcome back to Pink Saturday. I thought you might get a kick out of these adorable little doll shoes. I squealed with delight when I received them at Christmas. Too bad little dollies are the only ones with feet tiny enough to fit them. With the right outfit, I think I could totally pull off wearing them, if only they were my size. Patent leather and pink, it just doesn't get much better than that.

Thank you so much for dropping by today. For a list of all Pink Saturday participants pop over to our fabulous hostess Beverly's blog.But before you do, please scroll down and enter my Blog Birthday Giveaway. There are plenty of prizes to go around! In the meantime, I'll be doing a Google search for women's pink patent mary janes. Happy Day!
