Thank You, Sentimental Journey Block 8, Giveaway

First, let me start by thanking all of you for the wonderful hugs you have sent me for Razzy. I have to admit, the hole in my heart is huge and it's going to take me a while before the sadness stops gushing out of it. I had just taken the best photos and had some wonderful stories for him to tell. My life was unbelievably blessed by having him and he was a constant inspiration to me. I'm grateful for that and all my friends and loved one's that will help me through this. You all are a blessing to me. There seems to be so much sadness all around us now. It can bring us down if we let it get a hold of us. I'm going to do my best to keep my face to the sun and wear a big fat smile.

I find it truly ironic that this was the Sentiment for this month. How true it is. Click HERE to hop to my shop for the pattern. 

I also found it ironic that this month the Valdani Floss color is M 80, Distant Grass. I truly believe that Razzy has met up with Chloe and Rosey and they are playing in the distant grass together and having a party with all our other blog land bunny friends who crossed the bridge.

In honor and memory of Razzy and all our bunny friends, I decided this months giveaway would be some sweet little bunny things. To enter the giveaway, leave a comment on this post. Followers are entered twice in the drawing because you are extra special. I will pick the winner next Saturday, August 7th.

Thank you for being my friends.

Hi Sweet Shell:
Don't enter me in the drawing as I already have one of those wonderful bunny mugs from you.

I'll miss reading about Razzy's antics and he will always hold a special place - not only in my heart - but in the hearts of all of us with whom you shared his beautiful life.

Blessings and hugs, my friend.
xoxo
Donna

Please snuggle Sugar and tell her I hope she's feeling better, too.

That bunny has such a sad face; it looks like he's looking for a missing friend...how very appropriate.

*hugs*

Barb said...

I love your stitchery....it is appropriate.

What a nice thing to do....

Crafty Green Poet said...

I like to think of all the blogland bunnies who have passed on meeting over the Rainbow Bridge and playing together, Razzy certainly won't be without friends over there

Jessica said...

Dina said...

That sentiment in the stitchery is perfect. Razzy and the others are together, I just know it. I don't think my kitty would like a "real" bunny in the house but your giveaway gave me a perfect idea. Please count me in!

Diane H said...

This year we have been enjoying the antics of the wild bunnies in our yard. Watching them tearing around after each other and having the most fun. We'll keep Razzie in our hearts, Shell.

Julia Harrison said...

Hugs and blessings. I'm sorry to read about Razzy. As others have stated, I too know he is looking down on you and will continue to watch over you. Memories are wonderful things to help us through the worst of times. Take care of Sugie and yourself.

Julie said...

I know how much you will miss Razzy - it's so hard to lose a family member. I think of you often when I see the jack rabbits outside. We have one that drinks out of our fountain by the front door! I am sure that Razzy has met up with those bunnies that have crossed the bridge. Hugs to you, Julie

I'm a regular follower!

Hef's Mom said...

Please share those nice photos of Razzy anyway Shell!

Lisa said...

Wow, as always, the block and give away somehow so appropriate. Do you have second sight, Shell?

I agree with Hef's Mom.

Hope you and Sugie are OK. Snuggles to both of you!

Karen M said...

Shell, I hope you will post the pictures and stories that you have of Razzy, as a little celebration of him. And the sentiment and floss are so perfect. Funny how the universe can work sometimes. Hugs to you, and kisses to Sugie.

Mandy Saile of Bijou's Whimsy said...

Oh sweet Shell & Razzy....I hugging you both in my heart right now...Jon and I and the buns lite a candle for Razzy. Thinking of you so much right now. XOXO

p.s. this is not to enter for your lovely giveaway because I just won the last one...I just wanted to comment to let you know I was here.

Jan's Funny Farm said...

It is so hard to lose a furry. They leave such emptiness behind, even in a full house. We know because we lost one of our own again this year. So we send lots of purrs and tail wags.

alice said...

I just wanted to send you and Sugie some hugs. I recently lost one of my kitties and it was hard. He had been a member of our tribe for fifteen years. I will miss Razzy's stories. L,A-

Shirley said...

Hi Shell, Your saying is so appropiate and I love the thread that I got from you. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers, I would love to win a bunny mug so that way I can think of you when I am drinking hot tea or coffee depending on the mood I am in. I see three bunnies every morning as I go out my door to go to work. They love the clover in my yard. Take care.

StitchinByTheLake said...

What a difficult time it is when we loose a friend, but what joy it is to know we will see them again. blessings, marlene

judycinnc said...

My heart is so heavy with your loss. Our little furry people will all be waiting for us on the other side of the Rainbow Bridge.
Your give away is very appropriate.

E Roach said...

I am so sad to hear about your loss! I will hug my Peejay a few hundred extra times today.

I love the items in the giveaway today! Very beautiful.

Annette F Tait said...

Razzy won't have gone far Shell - he'll be looking over you. Would love to hear his stories, ofcourse :)
keep smiling, best wishes, Annette

Shell said...

I have a bunny story to share with you. At my local Marshall's there was a beautiful 3 foot Bunny for Easter that i wanted a few years ago. It was like 60 dollars.
I waited, waited and went back every five days to see if it got marked down. Finally it was marked down to 15 dollars and I got it. I walked home in the summer with a big rabbit underneath my arm. People stared and smiled at me. I was so happy.
My bunny now has a prominent space in my living room. I named him Joe.
Joe The Bunny and I would love to be entered into the giveaway. We love to have more bunnies here.
I know Razzy is having a lot of fun in bunny heaven and never far away from you.

Sherry said...

I love the new design of your blog.

It is so hard to lose a pet almost as hard as a family member, I lost 3 dogs in in a few months time but that was 5 years ago and I still miss them.
