Mid-Week Sneaky Peeky and Pure Imagination

There have been lots of bee's flying around Bunnyville.

Here's a sneaky peeky of my Barrington Bee's. I made five different drawings of bee's before I finally decided on this one. I can't wait to show you more and I have some exciting news to share next week!




I will leave you with this today. Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory was always one of my most favorite movies as a child. Funny how you can get so caught up in bills, responsibilities, etc. and forget things that made you really happy. The simple things. The act of dreaming and getting lost in your imagination. I've always had an overactive imagination. It helped me escape from sadness and pain as a child and in many times as an adult. I think we all need a little escape. "There is no life I know to compare with pure imagination. Living there you'll be free if you truly wish to be.


Having you here to share in the adventures of my imagination is such a gift. "Hold your breath, make a wish, count to three. Come with me and you'll be, in a world of pure imagination."

Don't forget to leave a comment for the giveaway on the post below. See ya Friday!

Light, love, and hugs to you,

Michelle and the Bunnies

Friend, I am with ya and Edgar Allen Poe. I grew up an only child in a dangerous world. I now live in a dangerous world, but no longer alone. A great husband and a more developed imagination along with FRIENDS has saved this mortal life of mine.

You are so special. Your creations are just fabulous, made with love.

And I SAW MORE BUNNIES LAST NIGHT IN MY YARD! It's comin'....spring is comin'! One rabbit was rolling around in the mud...teeeeheheeee

Your infectious cheer and optimism is one of the things I like best about your blog, and I appreciate you sharing one of your secrets to staying so positive. I think I tend to lean toward pessimism, but I want to change that!! Thanks for the insight into how you manage to always project a positive vibe.

Good Morning Shell, You have a way with your imagination to make awesome designs. I have see your movie several times with my children and my grandchildren. I have a grandson who has a great imagination and loves to build things with his lego's. You always show us just enough to make us want to come back to see what next. Have a great day. Hugs and Prayers from Your Missouri Friend.

Do you remember what Charlie Bucket's father's job was? (No Google now ...)

My friend Michelle, what a wonderful imagination you have. I grew up in the world of foster care and without my imagination I don't think I would have survived.
I became crafty and learned to sew and now as I have grown older my embroidery and quilts are beginning to blossom. I love your blog and your wonderful imagination. Thank you for sharing it and the Rabbits with us all.

Having a lot of toys will never be better than having a vivid imagination for a child - or an adult.

I love that movie of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory too. Every time it comes on, I insist on watching it (while stitching, of course). Noel just rolls his eyes! LOL! Barrington Bee is very cute. Love his flowers too.

Let's hear it for perseverance! You ended up with a spectacularly perfect little bee! Just adorable!

We visited some lavender fields a couple days ago, and the bees were just a-hummin' and a-buzzin' - there was a gentle breeze, and the buds were swaying, so it made it that much harder for the bees to get their prize, but they, too, persevered.

My imagination never turns off, and a lot of times, keeps me up at night! I love that quote & will probably embroider it on something soon! Thanks for brightening up our days!
