600 Followers Giveaway!!

"Hey Sugie stop eating for a minute. Check it out! We have over 600 friends following along with us!"

"What's that?!?"

"Yep, Mama said she never dreamed we would meet so many fun people through our little ol' blog. She's been doing the Happy Bunny Dance for hours! It's time to celebrate and have a giveaway!

"And now it's time for me to kick back and take a nice vacation. Ahhhh...yes!"

"Harrington, what do you mean by take a vacation?  You're always on vacation!"

"You're just jealous that you don't know how to relax."

Ok you two, simmer down. You sound like your daddy and me. Sugie you may take a well deserved vacation and Harrington...well... oh just continue on like normal!  I will thank everyone for their Friendship and for Following along with us.

So like I've been saying, 2011 is The Year of the Rabbit. I also made a promise it would be a handmade year! So our giveaway for 600 followers is this bunny pillow! Miss Velvet Bunny loves to sit among the roses on a soft, blue, sky, day. This pillow measures 12" x 16" and has a feather insert.

To enter the drawing, simply leave a comment on this post. If you are a follower, that has "officially signed up on the right of my sidebar under followers," you will get two chances!

You only have to leave one comment, but be sure to say you are following. *Note...I actually go and check each person when I'm counting the comments as I want to be totally fair to all participants. Only those that are "officially signed up as a follower" get two chances. Fair is fair and that's just how I am.

Anyone from any country is more than welcome to enter! I will use the random number generator to choose the winner on Tuesday, January 25th! Good luck everybun and thank you so very much for your friendship and for the time you spend visiting with us!

We love ya bunches!

Have a great day. Stay warm. Your Missouri Friend.

Debbie said...

I have to tell you that I am in love with your fun place. I have been collecting rabbits for years. Dates back to my childhood (way back in the dinosaur age). It was fun for me to find your spot through Stash Manicure. Simply lovely.

I am a follower! Because...I must!

Karen M said...

Looks like a big response to this one , shell. But how could you miss? The give-away is beautiful, and the bunny pics are fabulous!Love the one of Sugie popping her head up from the hay. And Harrington, always such a character. What fun.

I'm a follower, because you are THE BEST.

chloefpuff said...

nice, nice bunnies........
yours is the first blog that i officially "follow".

Staci said...

I am a follower, and love to see what you and the buns are up to!
We lived in Japan for several years, and I was speaking with a group of Japanese ladies one day. They were discussing an upcoming family wedding and how the bride was born in the year of the rabbit. All the ladies were smiling and nodding and ooo-ing and aaah-ing. When I asked why they were so happy about this news, they explained that women born in the year of the rabbit make the very best wives and mothers! Then they figured out I am also a Rabbit, and my stock with these women went WAAAAAAYYYY up! So, Rabbits, of all kinds, ROCK! But you knew that already!

JCnNC said...

I am also a follower and I really do love your blog and bunnies. Wonderful hand-made giveaway which would be wonderful to win. Hope I do. Judy C

Kris said...

Oh, Shell - Your kids are the cutest!!! And they must be so proud of you - 600 followers!!! Well deserved, dear friend!! :-) Kris

Kathy B. said...

I always have to check in and see what your cute bunnies have to "say." We have two Siamese cats who really do "talk" all the time, but I bet they're not as soft-spoken as your rabbits! This pillow would be a good reminder to them that they don't have to be so insistent, and they could be "quiet as a bunny" once in a while! Oh, and I am a follower! 600--Yikes!!!
