It's Flashback Friday again and another finished bunny

Good morning everyone!

The snow and cold are back after a couple days of lovely warm weather.  The wind was howling all of yesterday and it ushered in this blast of chilly air and snow.  I am so ready for Spring, but shall remain thankful for my wood stove and warm, cozy home.

If you saw my Flashback Friday post last week, you will recall that I shared a picture of Mister Whimzies' grandfather in his garden back in 1961....and I promised you that I would have one of him as a young man.  I simply adore this picture and it hangs in our dining room.  It shows Henry as a dapper and handsome young man, together with several of his lady relatives (I can't quite recall who is who, so I will leave it at that).  Don't you love their winter attire??

I finished this lovely bunny the other day. I think she is my favorite so far!   If you are interested in purchasing her, just let me know.  I will be listing her either on Ebay or in my Etsy shop this weekend, if I get a chance...it's going to be a busy one.

For those of you who joined in my Second Annual Pin Keep Swap - I will be getting your partner's information out to you by tonight.  Thanks to everyone who joined!

Have a blessed weekend friends!
