HAPPY EASTER !
Wishing everyone a very happy Easter. I love to collect rabbits and here a few. These little bunnies are congregating in my herb pot.
AsI grew older my mum used to give me a little rabbit each Easter. I treasure those rabbits as my mother passed away many years ago. Recently my little sister Lee has kept the tradition alive and gives me a beautiful rabbit at Easter time. The two above are from Lee.... The orange one I received this year (filled with yummy belgian chocolate buttons...they didnt last long!) and the ornate black rabbit was last years rabbit. He was filled with turkish delight easter eggs...yum.
This special rabbit I bought last year when I was in Thailand with Lee. It is by a local artist, Supachet. Lee and I both loved his art .... we visited a gallery with a lot of his art exhibited. All influenced by his love of and connection with elephants. We both bought a rabbit home as a memory of our trip.
This beautiful fabric selection was a gift from my lovely friend Dot (an early birthday present). They are such beautiful colours, very Eastery colours I think .... I am thinking I will make a light summer throw or maybe a duvet cover with them...brighten up my bedroom, especially as winter is approaching soon, it will be nice to work with some bright colours.
I woke early enough to catch this beautiful sunrise through the fog .... isnt nature beautiful. Click for a closer look. It only lasted a couple of minutes...but it was so quiet at that time of the morning and a lovely way to start my day.
And this my precious little man Oakey....he and I are home on our own over Easter. The boys have gone to a horse show in South Australia and we are enjoying some quiet time together.... although he sleeps most of the time. Oakey is 16 now and blind (due to glaucoma) and deaf, but still such a happy little fellow and apart from his blindness and deafness a very healthy little dog the vet said. I love him dearly and couldnt resist sharing this photo of him curled up on the couch this morning getting ready for his little morning siesta. He is snoring away as I type.
Have a wonderful Easter....stay safe.
