Somebunny's been Spoiled!

I believe somebunny has been very, very spoiled.

Yes, and it's not us Harrington!

Nope you two, it's me.  Although you both have lots of goodies coming your way. But, I have been truly spoiled by friends with gifts and beautiful cards this year. I just have to show you!

First from on of my dearest bloggy friends, Donna of Brynwood Needleworks, came this fabulous, felted, fella! (try and say that 3 times fast, hee,hee,hee, I crack myself up)

Isn't he incredible?!? I love his sweet face! She had this bunny made for me by artist Linda Wonser. I looooooove him! He will sit on my desk in my office to remind me I better hop to it and don't dilly dalley!

Next, from my incredibly talented stitching assistant and friend, April in Alabama, came this! I decided to use it as an ornament on my tree and love it there! Thank you April!

Then, my friend Natasha, who is an incredible artist, painted this santa ornament and made a card featuring her horse. Natasha has lots of critters, including two bunnies!

My sweet friend, Gail, who makes the such sweet things, made these ornaments for me! Aren't they cute?!

My absolutely fun friend, Barb of Bejeweled Quilts by Barb, made this adorable Santa ornament and beautiful card. I hope I get to meet Barb in person soon!

Back in July, I was so excited to meet Susanne and her family, who were vacationing in the States from Denmark! They drove out of their way just to meet me and the bunnies! I was so honored and we had the best afternoon together! Susanne (no blog) sent me these wonderful gifts. The bunny is filled with cotton balls and you just pull them out and use them. Cute! Then she sent me some Christmas stamps from Denmark! I get so excited over mail from other countries!
This is a pin that was made for the stamp this year. Susanne told me that this is a special Danish Christmas elf (crawling pixie) who is made of cardboard and placed on bookshelves.  The money raised from the sales of this stamp, help support children with weight problems. They go to a special home for 6-12 weeks and get help loosing the weight. Thanks so much Susanne! Hugs to you, the girls and Rune!

Then came a package from my dear friend Di and her cat (my niece) Miss Gracie. I was just telling David the other night that my hands were freezing as I worked on the computer and I wanted some of those hand warmer things. Well look what Di made! Hand warmers, a scarf and a hat! I put them on right away and was toasty warm working on the computer! Thanks Di! Perfect timing!
Di also gave me this beautiful piece. Made me cry as I thought of my sweet Sugar Bunny, who I lost in April and all the other bunny nieces and nephews that crossed over the bridge this year. I know they are safe and loved in the arms of angels.

Now I would like to share some of my most favorite cards I received.

This is my niece, Francesca whom we call, Frankie. She is as soft as a lamb and does the most hilarious things! She is always the center of attention everywhere she goes. Everyone loves her to pieces, including me!

This card came from my sweet bunny friend, Christina of Rabbit Tidbits. I've hung this on my vision board in Bunnyville to remind me of the person I strive to be.

This card came all the way from Scotland and was made by my poet friend, Juliet Wilson. Juliet is also an environmentalist and such an inspiration to me on ways to reduce, reuse and recycle. She made this card from old computer paper. I love it as it is a true reflection of Juliet.

My totally fun and funny friend, Jade of Zen of Bun, gave me the card above and the card below. The card below is my nephew, Mickey. He's such a handsome bun and I adore him as much as his mom! Jade has such an incredible sense of humor and sometimes I find it hard to leave comments on blogs after her as I'm laughing so hard!


This beautiful card was handmade by my friend Kristin Bonforte (no blog). I think it is absolutely gorgeous! My theme for this year is Peace on Earth, so this is so perfect.

And this card from my dear friend, Sharon of Corgis in my Garden, say's it all. It truly is the happiest season. A season filled with love, friendship, light and good wishes from everyone around the world. I am truly spoiled and incredibly blessed.

May you have a beautiful, happy and joyous Christmas, and may your day be filled with good food, long naps and lots of snuggles from those you love.

All our love,
Michelle, Harrington and Hannah

What a lovely bunch of treasures. Hannah and Harrington will just have to understand that momma needs spoiling sometimes too!

Merry Christmas Shell! You definitely received some fabulous gifts from very talented and thoughtful friends. So nice! XOXO to your bunnies and you.

LOS said...

Ok, Shell ... we no longer send out cards. But after seeing this visible outpouring of love for you, I think we will need a slight adjustment of policy for next year.

You are loved by so many people. Is there any way I could make it up to you? I'm thinking: how about I sent RG? It would be a huge sacrifice on my part, but you are worth it.


I love these sweet pictures of Harrington and Hannah; how happy and in love they look ... and what a wonderful ending to what started out as such a sad tale with the loss of Precious Sugie.

Merry Christmas, Shell. Signs of you have been woven all through our Christmas display this year. Everytime I see something from you, it makes my heart smile.

Much love from BL ... and the Bunns here (especially Zoey) and KB ... and RG who is packing as we speak.

Merry Christmas and a Hoppy New Year! :)

Good friends attract good friends, you're proof. :) (Okay, they also attract slacker Canadians, but that's a minor price to pay, right? ;)

I'm with the bunnies, nap time! (Tho my ears are no where near as cute.. *pout*)

Lisa said...
