Bunny Swap

I did this blog before I left on spring break.

I was blog hopping one day and somehow ended up on MisMollye's blot site.

Good thing too or I might have missed the bunny swap. I think I was looking at County Wings in Phoenix and saw this cute bunny on the side bar - so I had to go see what it was and it was a bunny swap. That's how I found MisMollye.

I signed up and was given a partner to send a gift to - which was Chickory Nits and someone named Dog Mom Diva had mine (lucky me by the way).

So I had new followers and new friends. Mollye arranged when to send the packages and when to post what we received. So here goes.


This is my dining room pre-tablescape.

Inside the pretty green box was a beautiful pink package.

I was trying to guess what was inside from Dogman Diva.

Another box!

And inside that box was the cutest little bunny you ever did see.

And a set of handmade Easter tags to go on gifts I was giving out this Easter from an Esty shop.

I looked for the perfect spot for my bunny.

Didn't look quite right on the credenza of pugs!


Another close up of the tags. They were beautiful. I'm keeping one as a pattern.
So here was the perfect place - on my Easter Tablescape table - and he was my grandson's bunny!



So thank you very much MisMollye for hosting the bunny swap.

And a HUGE thank you to Barb, a new friend, at Dog Mom Diva's! I just loved everything. Thanks.

Hello Sandie ~I've truly missed my visits, but little by little I'm catching up.
Although last month was difficult with our loses a new month has brought new hope.
I poured myself a cup of tea and read a spell...
What an adorable bunny. He added the perfect touch to your lovely tablescape.
I'm so excited to see spring blooms popping up. I look forward to applying the inspirational palette of colors into a few DIY decorations and gifts, with a little baking/cooking in between.
Don't you love the aroma that fills the air during this season?
It's definitely invigorating.

Sweet wishes,
Sara

The Bunny is absolutely adorable. I had planned to join MisMollye bunny swap and let time get by me. Oh, well maybe next year. I also like the bunny tags.
Sure do miss you, hope you are having a good time and look forward to seeing pictures of your trip.
