Momma and Baby Bunny

Happy Friday blog friends!
We're getting sleet and freezing rain at the moment~
but the weather man says it's gonna change to just rain this afternoon.
I was going to venture out and make my rounds today,
but since it's yucky, 
I'll be in working on more prim goodies.

Meet Momma and her baby..

Long winded

Hi Blog Friends!

What a whirlwind of a week.
I've been crafting, cleaning and running arrons all week.

I think Mother Nature is confused!
 We've had winter and spring weather here in the valley for the last few weeks. Yesterday it was sunny, warm with a slight breeze then last night cold freezing rain, snow and flurries today.
Looking over at the mountains, you can see snow on them.

Winters are nothing like they use to be when I was a kid.
We use to get feet's of snow in February.
My sister, brother and I would go out and build snow forts.
Aw, those were the days.
Back then there was a lot of sibling rivalry between us kids.
I remember, one year we got BB guns for Christmas and my little brother and I thought it would be neat to shoot at each other! Oh, yes we did! Needless to say, mom was not happy and the guns disappeared.
I was the oldest and should have known better I guess, but having that memory still brings a smile to my face.   Is that bad or what!
Know I cherish my sister and brother and enjoy the time we spend together. 
I received the sweetest gift from our friend Lecia yesterday.
She stopped by to bring me a surprise b-day gift on her way to visit with her mom.
As you may know, Lecia's mom is recovering from some major surgeries to repair her broken arm and hip.  If you could say a little prayer for her recovery, I know she'd appreciate it.
Well, I squealed with delight when I opened my gift!
Sweet Lecia made me one of her standing bunnies! 
She also gave me the sweetest card and a yummy smelling tart.

Just look how sweet she is. I love her Lecia! Thank you!

She stands proudly on my computer desk watching me visit with all of you.
See the choc heart in her basket? Yep~ I ate it! heehee.

Lecia is so talented~ she always says she's a wannabee crafter, but I think she is a superb artist!
Lecia will be debuting her creations on Early Work Mercantile March 1st, so mark your calendars and check out her offerings. I'm sure there will be something you'll love!
Thank you again Lecia, you are always a delight to see and I am blessed to know you and have some of your prim goodies to grace my home.
I know I promised to show you the gourd baskets awhile ago.
So, here they are.

They were a lot of work, but I love the end result.
Linda over at Parkers Paradise left me a message suggesting I age them with brown shoe polish.
Thanks Linda! That's the perfect thing to use. 
I sanded them a bit and polished them with the shoe polish and wa la, prim aged gourd baskets.
I drilled holes in each side and used rusty wire for the handles.
The prim grass is a coco liner I shredded and placed in them.
Took them to my selling booths Friday~ sure hope they sell.
And here are a few things I managed to complete this past week.
Folk Art Rabbit and Eggs~ pattern by Oodlekadoole Primitives.

Rabbit doll~ pattern by Tennessee Ridge Primitives.
He's been a great seller for me.

Prim carrots~ my own design.

Primitive Jack Rabbit~ pattern by Bits of Cloth.

Cone Flower Bunny~ pattern by Hidden in the Attic.
These rabbits have been a great seller for me.

I guess I'll stop know~smile.... I have lots to work on, and best get to it.
Have a wonderful weekend and thanks for stopping by!
