~ SOME BUNNY LOVES ME~

Hello guys....will plug in the lights and call it Christmas !!! I got this sweet package yesterday from one of the most sweetest blogger in all the world... But being the professional blogger I am ha ha!! I ran and got my camera first...Oh I really just wanted to tear into this like a house of fire... Now it was wrapped in Brown paper and the sender had emailed me to tell me it was coming and she hoped when Len picked up the mail he didn't think I had ordered something from an X-Rated shop...ha ha!!


Then I had to open the box...lets look and see what my treasure is....I almost broke a nail getting this thing opened...



LOOK AT THESE SWEET BUNNIES....Oh I just started doing my "HAPPY DANCE" over these.. See all the lace on them? I just seen these on Susan's at Between Naps on the Porch today...


This is little Bun...who I named Dot...( are you getting yet who sent these to me?)



This is Big Bun...who I named Bill...Now girls I wore myself out last night moving these Bunnies into every room of my house...they just Hopped all over the place...



Now I just started this collection of Ironstone about a month ago...Got all of the soup tureen's at Hospice thrift store...of course that also meant I had to find a spot to put all of them...does it ever STOP...of course not...



Now I ended up putting them in my cabinet that sits at the bottom of my stairs...Is this not sweet...so every time I come down the stairs or go into my bedroom I can look at them...


Now the sweet person who send me these...just because she loved me she said, is Dot from Picket's Place...I have known Dot since our days on RMS and we had a instant connection with each other...She has a strong love for God and her family and Home...She is one of the kindest women I have ever met without meeting in real life...She and I have shared many laughs together, tears together, and prayers together...

Picket I love ya sis...I thank God every day for bringing you into my life...I met Dot right after my Mama died and I really felted so adrift and alone...And this wonderful woman reached through my computer and touched my heart and spirit...She uplifted me with her prayers and made me feel whole again...I will cherished these Little guys the rest of my life dear friend..You have touched my heart like no other...PLEASE do yourself a BIG favor if you don't know Picket and go by and see her...


May all of you feel as Blessed as I am...


Now Saturday is PINK day and I will be posting my 100 post give away...Please come by and toss your name in the hat for the drawing...I think you will like it...I made it myself just for someone special in Bloggerville...
Hugs and smiles Gl♥ria

Your bunnies look gorgeous in that gorgeous china cabinet! You do have some of the most beautiful pieces of furniture I've ever seen!
You are a sweetie,

Dot certainly is a really sweet person, just reading her blog can bring up my spirits. These little bunnies she sent you are absolutely adorable and fit in perfect with your collection. You are also very deserving of this sweet gift.

I had as a best easter that one can have after loosing my mother.
It was so different looking at the place where she sat; no one wanted to sit in her favorite chair or move anything that she had place just so, so. It breaks your heart watching dad look for her in other rooms. Watching the clock to give her medicine. We took long walks and I tried to ask him things about his life with mom and when they first met and I heard stories I had never been told. It was a special bond with him and my little sister and I shared mothers favorite room; (her room) and we slept there together talking and giggling like we where back at home and little girls again. Then we cried and held each other vauling never to hurt each other and be there for each other always. I gad you stopped by and thank you for everthing.

Cindy ~ My Romantic Home said...

Hi Gloria, I saw your comment on Mo's blog and I would like to apologize. I'm overwhelmed with the comments and emails I get daily and I know I'm not very good at returning visits but it's not because I don't want to! There just isn't enough time in my days with working full time and having a teenage daughter at home that I'm running here and there and all over town sometimes! I really wish I could squeeze in an extra 3 hours each day to sit down and read blogs!!! If someone emails me I return the email but I do end up with some in my spam folder and I'm sure a few get deleted by accident. I was stressing my self out trying to keep up with it all awhile ago and I finally just gave up. The funny thing is there are blogs that I've left comments on that don't visit mine and I've stopped commenting on theirs too...so I know exactly how you feel!!! I hope you understand!! I think I should probably address this on my blog too.

I love you ironstone collection and the bunnies look great with them!!! What a nice gift!

Linda/"Mom" said...

* GLORIA, G*L*O*R*I*A!!! (Remember??)~ Hi n' HAPPY 100th!!!Lovely posting here, & what a fabulous lil lamp you've created!!! You sound happy & healthy, ol' gf, and, "that's a good thing"!!! Hugs, Linda *

Hi Gloria,
You have a beautiful home..... I enjoy lookint at your pictures of it and your decorating.
Now I will go over and visit Picket's Place. I usually don't stay too long as there goes the evening, but I need to fit the house and suroundings with the person.
You have been very generous to me with your comments and I appreciate so much.
