I have a nice little collection of porcelain hinged boxes so I purchased this cute little cottage shelf & hung in it my entry way. I change it out with different themed boxes to go along with each season. My granddaughter recently gifted me with my newest pieces for this ~ the dangle legged bunny, the precious bunnies in a hatbox, & the large white bunny with a pink rose on it! All with her very own allowance money!! Boy, she is a girl after my heart!!!!
I'm a member of a group called PRH & we recently had an Easter Swap & below are some pics of what I received from my sweet PRH sister, Shirl of Shirl's Rose Cottage. She spoiled me with Linder Truffles (white chocolate ~ yummmm), a precious bunny tote with beautiful roses, netting & other florals, a gorgeous cross-stitch Easter pillow, a silk ribbon embroidery sachet, a lovely handmade card & tag (her very first!! I'm so honored to have received it!), & gifts for my two "girls", our pets.
Close up of the beautiful tote & her awesome handmade "chick" tag..... Easter Pillow & heavenly lavender scented sachet with SRE.........
Closeup of the intricate details........ Shirl just recently retired from her banking job & is getting ready to offer some awesome items for sale, so check out her blog soon & I'm sure she can help spoil you, too!!!
This is what I sent to Shirl. A Happy Easter card, glittered of course, that said "From one hip chick to another!". A topiary bunny, a framed cross-stitched bunny in a Spring wreath, & a fou-foued pink egg ornament. Oh, mustn't forget the decorated cookie, a little yellow chick popping out of an Easter Egg!
The pink feathers were used in my daughter's wedding decor a few months ago, & the silk roses & ribbon trim & pearls were given to my by my other sweet PRH sis, Rhea of Sweet 'n Shabby Roses. They really helped fou-fou up the bling-y egg in style!!
My girls heard that Shirl even remembered them, so here is Miss Rosie looking for her loot!!
Sissy is a bit more mannerly. She only stands on her hind legs, begging. She would never put a paw on the table!!!
Now Rosie, on the other hand, would crawl right up there if her short little legs would just cooperate. Funny, but when you are blonde & beautiful, you can get away with soooo much more!!
Sissy wearing her cute bandana that Shirl made especially for her.
Rosie feeling oh so pretty in her brand new pink roses hair bow that Shirl made. It even glitters, too!! AND she made one for my "adopted" love, Precious, my mother's little Shih Tzu!! How sweet is that?!?!?!
Shirl, thank you so very very much for spoiling me rotten with such lovely goodies. I love you, dear friend! Have a wonderful Easter with your sweet family!
Now I really really must get down to the kitchen & see how to work that oven!!
