Another little peek, Trademark, and ready for Spring

Hi ya! I hope you had a fun weekend. Mine was busy as always, but I did get to enjoy my first Friday night pizza night with Captain now that she's back home and across the street.


Here's another little peek of the piece I've been working on. I also received really good news the other day that my "Folk Art Fusion" is officially trademarked! Woo hoo! I applied for this trademark back in November. It takes forever for the US Trademark office to look at everything. It is also very expensive. It cost $650 (for application and lawyer) and there is no guarantee that it will pass. So let me say, I was doing the happy bunny dance when they said it did! Now I can use that little R in the circle behind Folk Art Fusion. Yippeee!!!


Another bright spot in my weekend was this pot of pansies from my friend, Sue.


I think they look so nice on my back porch. It's been pretty cold and dreary this winter. I'm so ready for Spring. These pansies are perfect to hold me over until Spring decides to show up.

Have a fun week and we'll see you back here on Wednesday. Don't forget to see the post below to sign up for the giveaway!

xx,
Michelle and the Bunnies

Congratulations on your trademark. I have a calendar in my kitchen with flowers, so that I have the looks of spring and summer during a long and cold winter.

Sweet one! I had to leave early for school yesterday so I missed sitting on the back porch with you! Thank you for coming over to leave a comment.

Well my dear, you and me and the bunnies, we are looking forward to some sunshine! I so love watching our wild rabbits lay out in the sun, and fall asleep!!!!!!

I went to The Hoppy Hour like I had mentioned to you. It was SO FUN to talk to other rabbit enthusiasts and owners AND SEE all of the bunnies together! The obstacle course was a hoot and a wonder to watch as rabbits jumped and did the bunny dressage, the tubes, the teeter totters, and then the social hour began. I held "FRANK" the lion-head rabbit, I got to play with "Crosby" the FLEMISH GIANT and we laughed until our cheeks hurt. I thought of you.

Much love to you Michelle! Anita

Congrats on a successful trademark and I think that strap with the flower you showed will look great on a handbag! I hope that's what you are making!
