Candle Mat from Jindi's Cottage

Ya'll, I have been spoiled again!!!! Look what I got yesterday!

My dear friend, Annette of Jindi's Cottage, made this candle mat for me! (Does anyone else jump up and down clapping their hands at the mailbox when they see a package marked "air mail? The neighbors already know I'm nuts")

Needless to say, I have been spoiled again!!!

I have the perfect place for it and the perfect candle too. What do ya think?

Thanks sooooooooo much Annette! I love it! Happy bunny dance again. :) Hop over and visit Annette and her dog, Jindi. Tell her "the spoiled Shell said hi!"

That is just delightful - love those soft greys, perfect for a bunny hop.

OMG, those felt bunnies are too cute with their flower garlands!

Beautiful work, Annette. I would need to have some color there, though; that piece just screams springtime to me, so I'd want shades of green for those sweet bunnies to romp in.

Shell, that candle is indeed perfect. I wish I could find my glass vases so I could make a candle holder like that, but I fear that hubby has either tossed them out or stored them out in the shed, where they always end up shattering because he doesn't store them properly. *sigh*

I don't jump up and down but I always say to the doggies "Oh what did Auntie Shell send us?"

What a fabulous gift. Lucky you! Those rabbits are adorable!

It looks great on top of the books.

Hi Shell
So glad you like it...when I saw the pattern it just screamed out "Hey, Hey You...Over Here...Make Me For Shell"...it was Really Loud! *LOL*
Love it with the gorgeous candle in the vase...
Enjoy

PS...Being behind the times as I was at work yesterday means I get to read the lovely comments, you have such nice friends :)

Hi Shell--I was not able to leave a comment last night--I had a lap full of fur while I was reading the posts--I love that candle mat--
I have a bunny felt pattern coming in one of these days--wonder if it will be the same one???
Hugs, to you and the bunnies--
