I have over the past week or so received some lovely happy mail which I thought I would share with you.
These beautiful vintage French seed labels came from Simply French Vintage.
Aren’t they wonderful, I just love these images!
Having read about this book on a few blogs I decided I would like to read the book itself.
Four Hedges for those of you who haven’t read it is about Clare Leighton who was one of the finest engravers of the twentieth century and about her passion for her garden.
Claire’s illustrations throughout the book are amazing.
A lovely little parcel of fabric dropped onto the mat this week from Celtic Fusions Fabrics, definitely bunny skirt material!!!
This also arrived in the post this week, all the way from Australia from the lovely Elizabeth who last year became the owner of Pixie. She sent me a photo of Pixie with a little koala who has now come to live with me in my craft room. Thank you Elizabeth it was lovely to see Pixie again.
I was very lucky this week to win this beautiful artwork in a giveaway. I had just found My Painted Bear on Facebook and fell in love with Naomi’s art, I then noticed that she was having a giveaway, entered and luckily won. When I emailed Naomi I then found out that she too was from N. Ireland and had actually exhibited work in a gallery in my home town. Naomi’s work is beautiful, you can find her Etsy shop here and her blog here. Thank you Naomi.
Now this pretty little bunny just arrived yesterday, isn’t she gorgeous? She is made by the very talented and clever Farrell & Holmes, I defy you not be tempted when you take a look at their website. The bunny is stuffed with lavender and I could smell it as the postman handed the package over to me. You can also find details of their work on their Facebook page.
Now if you would like to receive some happy mail too I have just the thing for you.

Thank you all so much for your comments on my last post, all of the February Girls are heading off to their new homes. My next lot of bunnies are going to have a Spring/Easter theme which I’m really looking forward to.
I’ll leave you with these little tete-a-tete daffodils from my garden, according to the Green Rabbit Calendar tomorrow is the beginning of ‘real’ spring……happy, happy days!
