Our Visitor to Bunnyville

On Friday I had a wonderful visit with my new friend, Sharon, of Corgis in My Garden. I had sooooooooo much fun hanging out with her and the time went by way to fast! She is just the sweetest lady and I wish she lived closer. But, I found out she lives very close to my sister in Virginia, so I will get to see her whenever I'm up there! Yippeeeee!

Look at this fun gift she brought me! It looks like a chocolate bunny, but it's really resin underneath the wrapping. I can enjoy it forever and it won't make my butt big! hee,hee,hee.

Sharon is a critter lover too. She has 3 Corgis and 2 cat's. She believes in spoiling her fuzzy kids as much as I do. My kinda lady!

Sharon also collects all kinds of dishes. She spotted this pitcher on my living room table. She know's how much I redecorate and have yard sales, so she told me to put her name on this as she has dishes to match it.

Name is on it! :)

Well not only is this one sweet lady that loves critters and has great taste in dishes, she too loves to decorate, but in miniature! Check these out!!

The Garden Room. I love the wisteria climbing on the side. I could see myself sitting there having tea with her and her dogs and cats!

This is the Flower Shop.

Hello little bunny on the bench. Are you waiting for a snack?

The kitty on the bench outside is just too cute!

This is a bathroom in one of her doll houses. Makes me laugh with the kitty playing in the potty!

I took Sharon to lunch at the Sea Glass Cafe. Our time truly went by way to fast. (I'm squinting in this photo because the sun was so bright and my eye's can't hang! So I look dorky!) Sharon, it was so wonderful to meet you in person and Sugie and Harrington are very happy to have another special auntie.

Until I see you again, sending lots of hugs your way!

Gee, can anyone put their name on a piece in your house? I love the miniatures - I am in awe. How nice for you two to visit.

Jade said...

The miniatures are awesome (I am so coveting that little green bunny) and it sounds like you guys had all kinds of fun. Love the "chocolate" bunny (I need more of those and less of the real thing--"make mine chocolate" is making my belly fatter. :( )

...and you two just keep rubbing it in! lol

Love the photo of the two of you together. Sharon's miniatures are fabulous, and I cracked up when I saw that you actually wrote Sharon's name on the bottom of the pitcher. Also...what a clever Easter rabbit!

So glad you had a good time together.
Hugs to you both,

Hi Shell, I am so glad that you had such an enjoyable day with Sharon. You always are trying to picture your friends here in blogland. Your rabbit she brought you is so adorable and I love her minatures. I have a friend who builds miniture houses. They are so unique and makes me wish I had a doll house even at my age. My kids would really think I am nuts. HeHeHe, Got to see all of my grandsons so it made my weekend. Take care my friend. Your Missouri Friend.
P.S. I found a neat quilt shop on Saturday, They had so many pretty fabrics.

Hi Shell,

How wonderful that you got to meet a new friend and I loved seeing your photos. How clever she is making the darling miniatures, love the Garden room.
The Easter Rabbit is cute and unlike the chocolate one, you will be able to keep it.

Happy week

Oh so glad you had a wonderful time. Being an artist can be quite lonely, despite all of our online connections and it's something extra speacil when we can meet kindred spirits in person, yayyy for you both.
