Sometimes Love can give us a Fairytale



Once in a while, right in the middle of an ordinary life, love gives us a fairytale--unknown

I can't help but feel this statement is so true every time I visit with "Alice" over at Potentially Nervous. Sometimes life as an adult does seem so incredibly ordinary and rather mundane with the whole work, pay bills, take care of everyone, clean the house, work some more routine. Then sometimes...right in the middle of all of that...a love for something... can bring a fairytale. A fairytale of the heart.

You see I truly believe my love of bunnies led me to Potentially Nervous www.potentiallynervous.blogspot.com a few years ago. Her blog title reads, "The World is Going to Hell. Here are Some Bunny Photos." So right in the middle of my mundane, ordinary, the world is going to hell routine, comes the most incredible bunny photos I have ever seen!
There's just something about bunnies that bring a sense of calm, peace and utter happiness. I mean who can resist cute and fuzzy???? Don't you just want to kiss these faces! I can't hardly stand it! "Alice" has the most incredible eye. A talent and a true gift.
Then... right in the middle of all of that, "Alice" opens her own store called Potentially Crazy!
Now I'm Potentially Crazy because her first item for sale is a Screen Saver!! For $9.99 (1 1/2 grande breve lattes from Starbucks) I got 125 of the most incredible, gorgeous, down right...bring on the happiness, bunny photos ever!!! I spend a lot of time in my office and it's soooo wonderful to have a screen saver that always makes me smile, happy and calm.
Yes, sometimes love does bring us a fairytale. Sometimes it's only $9.99 and easily downloaded.
Go get ya one. You know you can't resist that face! hee,hee,hee. Oh and soon she'll have more products like calendars, note cards and prints. I'm already making my list.
your friend,
shell

I enjoyed seeing your bunny pictures. I think my favorite is your white one because you see I have a white bunny, who isn't real, but so soft and lovable to hug when you are curled up in the chair all warm and compfy especially when you are the only one home.

We had a dutch bunny, years ago. She was the sweetest thing and she loved to sit in our laps and she loved to play with the dog. Nothing funnier than a rabbit who loves to tease a good hearted dog.

There is just something magical about having a bunny running around the house. I'll be down or upset about something, and then one of them just runs by, and i am taken away to somewhere nice. :)

Alice does have the best bunny pictures, no offense to everyone else with bunnies. ;)

(i thought i was at the wrong blog for a second there, heh)

Shell, what a great site. We hadn't seen it before, so thanks for mentioning it. Taking good bunny pictures can be so hard, and these are wonderful.

What lovely, lovely pictures.

And yes, bunnies do lift my spirits.

Right now I am sitting on the sofa with my laptop. My thoroughly grumpy boyfriend is sitting next to me and I feel so fed up with him.... so I am going to head upstairs, get into bed for a cuddle with Humphrey. He will lift my spirits!

Then tomorrow I will visit the lovely blog you have highlighted here... though actually I did see it already just the other day. It's lovely.

Love Charlotte

Rebecca said...

Hi Shell
Wow, there are a lot of bunny people out there...not that I wouldn't think so. It just isn't a pet I picture hopping around the house...do they wear diapers? They are sooooo cute - I have to admit that.
Blessings to you my friend

Now I REALLY want a bunny! My husband would flip. We already have four furbabies taking up all our time and creating havoc. But they're just so unbelievably cute!!!

I am a first time visitor from surfing. I love the soft,fluffy, and cute bunnies. When in the third grade (in the 50s), a boy in class said his bunny had babies. I said to bring me 2. So I put them in my purse and took them home! Needless to say, the bunnies went back to school the next day. Later, we did get some bunnies.

My Mom,now deceased,had the nickname "Bunnie" with birth name of Bernice.

I now have "meow,meows" but love bunnies!!!!

Sara's Sweet Surprise said...

Shell~I'm overwhelmed by the cuteness factor of those Buns!!
My gosh the white bunny sitting on the foliage and flowers in the car!
How delightful. I will be sure to visit Alice.

I have to tell you how much I enjoy seeing all the samplers you've embroidered. I've never graduated past the glue gun, so I really appreciate those who can sew.

Thanks for your visit, I'm looking forwarding to getting to know you and the bunnies.

Sweet wishes,
Sara

I just love bunnies and these are fabulous pictures. My nickname has been Bunny since 1972. I have collected "cute" bunnies for many years. A visiting friend encouraged her daughters to count all the bunnies they could find in my house (to give us a few minutes of talking time) only to have the girls return after about 20 minutes and lament that there were just too many bunnies to count! My screen name is bunbytes (a melding of my nickname and my attachment to my computer). except on gmail.
