This weekend I decided to accomplish "mission organization." I cleaned, weeded out, hung pink Christmas lights, rearranged, glittered letters, dusted the bunnies and their dust bunny friends, organized my vision boards and well, decorated the pudd'in out of bunnyville. It feels so good up there and it's so hard for me to leave it. I'm so inspired to get to work on some new projects now that I have such an inspiring place to work. Of course, the kids have a very cool tunnel playground set up underneath the shelving unit with their play castle at the end. They are very happy with the new decor.
Have a fun week! Hugs,
This week IGF the fact that David is a good bunny daddy and didn't want to evict Silfay from the yard, when he ate all the leaves off the flowers in the beds. Ooops! Naughty bunny.

I went to Lowe's the other day to have a key made. I really, really tried to walk past the paint swatches and not look at them. I talked to myself the whole time. You don't need them, you don't need them, don't look at them, keep walking, but then my beloved Laura Ashley swatches shouted out to me, "don't you want to see my new colors." Yes, Laura, yes I do! I stood there just petting the pretty colors. What's bad is that I can't get just one swatch of my favorite colors, I have to get two of each in case one gets lost or wrinkled. So, I pay my $1.80 for my key and walk out the door with my giant, double fisted, heap of paint swatches. I know the fella behind me was thinking, "her poor husband, and OMG she's got pink in there!"
Then the most incredible, unbelievable thing happened to me. You see, even though I get my swatches from Lowes, I have them color matched at my Glidden paint store. I love their paint. The manager of the store is use to me sending my clients there for swatches and for paint. My painter only uses Glidden paint, so the manager knows me. Well the other day I sent my coworker, Stevie, to the paint store for, you guessed it, swatches. Stevie calls to tell me that they are out of the particular swatches I need for a client. I'm a bit agitated, but maintain my calm. Stevie then tells me he has a surprise for me. Ohhh boy! I love a surprise! What is it????? He won't tell and says I have to wait till he gets back to the office. Well, I never dreamed I would get this wonderful surprise. Apparently, the manager of the paint store loves the fact that I love swatches and loves the fact that I love his paint and loves the fact that I send everyone there to shop. He had decided to give me..... Are you ready????? The "MOTHER LOAD OF PAINT SWATCHES." Yes, it's true! I have the entire "Master Collection" (see it on the box) that is only given to managers of stores and high profile designers. Me, little ole' Shell, has the "Master Collection." This gift, in it's pretty carrying case, is like 100 more times more fabulous than getting the big box of brand new crayons at Christmas, which I told the manager while I thanked him over and over and told him he made my entire year! Of course he laughed as he knows I'm a bit whacked!
So, does this mean that I will stop getting swatches from Lowe's, Home Depot and wallpaper stores. Probably not. I mean hey, an addiction is an addiction right?
Now, as for the pink chunky bunny. This is something my pink sister's at Make Mine Pink will appreciate as they are now fans of Razzy (aka Chunky Bunny). How perfect is this? I found this fabulous pink, chunky bunny and just had to bring it home. It looks like a Buddha Bunny. I've heard that if you rub the Buddha's belly, it will bring luck and money. I wonder if it will work on a Pink Buddha Bunny Belly. Say that fast after a few glasses of wine!
Hugs to all and have a fabulous week.
This week IGF my nephew bunny, Fatty, getting better after his toe amputation and the fact that my wild bunny friend, Silfay, is still living in my yard and not smushed in the road.
