A Pink Buck-Toothed Bunny and Other Finds
Did the title of this post grab your attention? I thought it would! I was searching Ebay for vintage bunnies, and these came up with one minute left in the auction. As soon as I saw the picture, I knew I had to have them, so I read the description as fast as I could, and placed my bid, and I won! I love the bright pink color, and the polka-dot bow.
But will you get a load of those teeth?!! Someone needs to go to the bunny orthodontist, and get some bunny braces!
I found more 11/$1 cards at my favorite antique store. Please feel free to use these images.
I hope I don't horrify anyone when I say this, but I think I am going to use these old cards in future crafts, instead of scanning and printing out the images. Ink cartridges are just way too expensive and I can't justify the expense.
Unless.....can I take these to Kinkos and have them printed out on cardstock, for a reasonable price?
I hope so, because it really would be a shame to cut these up.
That is an actual piece of stone from Blarney Castle, in Ireland.
Certified, on the back of the card, in 1938.
This one looks like it got wet at some point, but how cute is that with the fuzzy flowers and that pink birdhouse?!
And I found these beauties in my mailbox! I won them from Holly at Banner Haus, and I got to pick whatever I wanted from her Etsy shop. They remind me of little violets, and this picture just doesn't do them justice. If you need some images for your blog, Holly has new ones every single day, at Banner Haus. Thank you Holly!
I should have shown this valentine from Elizabeth weeks ago, but I kept forgetting! It hangs on the lamp in the living room, and it probably always will! Thank you Elizabeth!
And last but certainly not least, a little package arrived in the mail from Jacqueline at Once Upon A Fairyland. I can't wait to plant those seeds, and then save the cute package they came in! It's always fun to visit Jacqueline, and I know that had we been friends when we were little girls, I would have always been knocking on her door, asking if she could come out and play!
I hope you found some treasures this weekend too!
