Thinking about bunnies

Another weekend has come and gone.  It was a slow weekend here.  I wish I could say that I got lots done, but that wouldn’t be the truth.  I didn’t have a great weekend and so most of it, I just spent doing some reflection and reading.  Not sure any of you ever feel this way, but I know I do.  Hoping for a much better week.

This morning the skies look clear and bright, but I know this is short lived.  We crocus_snow have another  snow headed our way this afternoon….I am really needing some sun and some warmth.  :) Seems like we just got dug out from the last 2.5 foot of snow that we got last week…hoping and praying that this will be dusting or a few inches…I can’t even bring myself to look at the forecast.

Now that Valentines Day is behind us, (did you all have a good one?) I guess I need to focus on Easter.  We all know that it will be here before we know it.  With that I thought I would share with you a little bunny that I “prettied up”. 

First, my bunny in all it’s Paper Mache glory…..that I picked up at the antique mall for peanuts. 


I gave her a coat of paint, not sure what color it was, it was more of a off white


Once she was all dried, I antiqued her, using my trusty shoe polish.  Yes, I have used shoe polish for years as a way of aging my goodies.


After that was completed, I dressed her in a pretty purple bow.  Now she is just waiting to be “on display”.  Maybe that will come this week.

  3. This is so cute, I'm glad the bunnies are coming out! I like your distressing technique, too!

  4. Hi Cindy! Thanks for letting me know about your new blog. Those are cute crocuses peeking out from the snow. That must seem like a sign of spring even tho winter wants to hang around longer! Hope you have a great week ahead! (((Hugz)))

  5. How how cute. And so smart. I never thought of painting my bunnies. I have a terracotta one that would look great white!

    Thanks for sharing.

  6. Thank you for leaving a sweet comment on my blog. And that bunny is too cute! I have to remember your shoe polish trick next time I want to craft=).

  7. Hi Cindy,
    Great job on the bunny, and love the tip of using the shoe polish. Who would have thought, that is one reason I love blogging you get all thee great and free tips.
    I too have been thinking about Easter, but am trying to get motivated to clean first, as I have so gotten behind in my work. I hope you will soon have warm sunshine and warm temps.
    We are finally getting warmer temps. and I am so glad.
    I did indeed have a great Valentines day, thank you for asking. I was able to go to worship service for the first time in weeks, due ti illness. It was so wonderful.
    Have a great weekend
