You've Heard of the Bunny Hop....

..but how about a Bunny Swap?

Recently, I participated in a swap that was organized by Vivian from Viv Out On A Whim. You can see her blog at http://vivs-whimsy.blogspot.com/ She is always up to something, that Viv!

This adorable bunny was sent to me from Flora Thompson of Bone Head Studios!

If you aren't familiar with Flora's work, you are in for a treat. She has a really unique style and is just brilliant.

Her seasonal pieces are out of this world!

Check out her blog at http://boneheadstudio.blogspot.com/ There you will find links to more of her amazing work!


Isn't this the coolest bunny you've ever seen?

My husband was home when I found out that my swap partner was Flora. He remembers because I gave out a whoop that would wake the dead. Then I made him look at all of Flora's work.

I had been following Flora's work and she is one of my absolute favorites. Her work is always appealing to me.

Now you can see why I was so excited!

Let's be honest. Even her hang tags are adorable and they're just part of the packaging!


In addition to the sad, darling little bunny up top, she also sent this charming little brooch. Isn't the face great? Cuteness personified!


This is just an update on some recent things I've made. This is the most pompous bunny in the world. He looks as if he would pull out the soapbox and lay it on you at the drop of a hat. Ugh!


Doesn't he look like he is ready to pontificate?

(Don't tell him, but he has a HUGE bottom. Very distracting. Not at all good for public speaking!)


This silly little thing that is about 2.5 inches from head to tail.

It's a wee little felted mermaid in the style that was around in the early 70's.

Someone was talking about these a while back and I thought it was sort of intriguing. I do have memories of dolls similar to these, though the ones I had were a funny smelling (and likely toxic) plastic.

Now what to do with it? I have no idea! Any suggestions?
Thanks for popping in!

Until next time, happy bunny swapping!
