Johnny's bunny got here yesterday! I absolutely adore it and it goes so well with Gram's afghan and the quilt Katie made. The mail system here is sometimes hard to deal with (we've been waiting on a lawn mower blade for almost two months now) but then it's a pleasant surprise when something shows up quickly. Here he (she?) is in the new home:
I simply love 'new' things as I don't buy much any more. Having this baby is like Christmas for us!
Yesterday as well our lovely friend and neighbor Brenda gave this to us:
I saw it at a second hand store and almost bought it back before I was pregnant, but it was broken and I'm not sure how good I am at fixing things like that. Then I simply forgot about it. Leave it to Brenda to find the same exact thing eight months later and pick it up for the babe! Her husband is über handy and so it will probably be a cinch for him to fix up (now why didn't I think of that?). I'm mad about lobsters, and this one clacks his little claws as you push it across the floor!
A while back I found this basket at a flomarkt. It'll be used for storage of toys, diapers, whatever in J.'s room.
I think the fruit fabric is very charming!!
Then there's this shirt I dyed the other night during our mass-dye session, it reminds me of lemon and lime ice pops!
And since Wednesday is my favorite day, I may as well post a picture of one of my favorite things- flowers! This orchid resurrected and grew buds a few weeks ago, now it's showing it's true colors.
I got it from a friend and had no idea what it would look like, it's quite unique!
Okay, seriously. Our gnome-like landlord just scared the bejesus out of me! He walked up to our living room window and peaked in- he's so nosy! When he saw me looking at him (as I waved sarcastically) he asked if Chris was sleeping. I wonder if his mum taught him about knocking at the front door?
Darn, now I feel the need to clean...
