Bunny Cart

I recently came across the sweetest vintage Bunny pulling a cart.
It was in pretty bad shape though. I had to add new fuzz to the bunny,
paint the cart and I decorated the inside

with this darling vintage chick with hat

a nest, robins eggs and vintage flowers.
This is a OOAK and available in my Etsy shop.
Hoppy Spring!!!!

A book Art doll

I got to spend a bit of time with some gal pals this week. My dear friend Debbie
had this darling project planned out for me. She folded the book ahead of time and had made the umbrella. Isn't she sweet? You can't really see the tulle bustle due to the light coming in the window
but its there! A special evening spent with friends.

He had this cutting board made from wood. The areas are from top to bottom :
Coeur d' alene ,Sawtooth mtns, Boise skyline,Owyhee desert,
  center: Shoshone falls, 
left: Salmon river, City of rocks.
 I'm so very lucky to live in such a Beautiful state!
