The bunny has landed!

I can breathe a sigh of relief as my blogoversary parcel has arrived safely.

Time to introduce you to Pumpernickel..... thats the name Cathey over at Pumpkin Patch & Co has called the bunny i sent to her for my blogoversary win. I hope you and she have fun Cathey,

She just had to have an orange dress like a pumpkin didn't she, what other colour would have been more perfect!

Did anyone guess what she might look like?

Our local newspaper advertised a new shop that had opened not far from my home. With a name like Vintage Treasures who could resist a visit, so DH and i had a little trip out Saturday afternoon.

It's only a little wee shop, but full of lovely things. There were baskets of lace, ribbons and buttons to delve into and sort though. I could have spent heaps in there but DH treated me to some lovely glass buttons and these beautiful ribbons inside their own cardboard box, aren't they just wonderful, dare i use them LOL

There was one thing that i was surprised not to see on show in there though. There wasn't any crochet work but there were knitted and sewed items. The shop hasn't been open long so maybe it's something that will be there when i visit again. DH said we will definately be calling in again if when we are in the area. He better make sure he's got his pocket money with him though, i might not be able to resist some of the lovely items next time.

Nope Julie did not have any idea what colour she would be but should have guessed she would be beautiful as usual.
Ooohh those ribbons in their box look so yummy, I think they would be visited by me too if I lived near ,sounds really a super duper shop.

You know she's got a great home here :o) She sits on the stairs by my ivy plant so I see her every day. I guess I always thought your bunnies were smaller so was quite surprised when I opened the package! LOL!

Lovely goodies!
