Pink Bunny Fun!



Do any of you girls remember this bunny that sits on my fence? I found 3 more in various places around the property. I fixed one up and gave it away a few months back but last week, I made one up just for me!
I love how it turned out! The flower garland came from my fairytale friend, Jackie at Once Upon A Fairyland! And the Pink toile paper came from my fairy blog mother Twyla of Two Crazy Crafters! I sure do love my bloggin' girls! Let's see... I think I'll name this bunny Mandy...

Here's Mandy on top of my roll top desk.
Do you see the scuffed paint on the wall behind the desk? I have a problem. I do have left over paint from the previous owner of this house. I could use that paint to touch up the wall *if* it wasn't for the fact that my wood stove provides a nice smoke coating on everything! If I try touching up the paint- it won't match- which means I would have to paint the whole wall. I think I'll save that job for the (hopefully soon!) new owners to be.
I hope you enjoy your week end!

Holly I love your bunny , Mandy. She is shabbied up real nice like. I have had wood stoves in the past and know what your talking about. I am happy for you and your paint job.. Paceing yourself is hard at times but ending up not being able to do any thing at all , would be worse. We are still waiting for our house to see too, although we have already moved, it is a waiting game i am tired of playing. Happy weekend to you. Sheila

Good Morning Holly! I liked the rustic bunny look, but I LOVE the pink toile bunny!
I agree with you on not painting that wall. The new owners will probably repaint, no matter what color it is, so save yourself alot of work!
Have a great weekend!

Very sweet bunny, Holly! Don't worry about the paint--houses need a bit of character!

Hope you're having a wonderful weekend!

Oh Holly! I love your fence bunny! He is so wonderfully weathered. In pink toile he is even more handsome! Your Easter sneak peaks are leaving me wanting closeups. The little bunny figurines are so sweet. Hope your week ahead is a good one! Elizabeth

I just love love love that bunny you have restored. Excellent. You should reproduce the pattern and sell these bunnies in wood. It is a WONDERFUL design. I would buy one.
Please check out my blog. I have a free give away. Thank you.
