Wednesday musings, my new toy, the bunny challenge and two blog giveaways

Good Wednesday morning ladies This is going to be a long post I'm afraid...lots to catch up on!

Another chilly but sunny morning here in the Finger Lakes.  The weatherman promises a warm up soon, at least for a couple of days, but each day gets a little longer and the 'smell' of Spring is in the air.
Look what my hubby got for me!   I didn't even ask, but he decided that it was time I had a new printer/scanner/copier for my computer and he picked a lovely one out for me!  Tried it out last night and I just love it!  Now I don't have to run up and down the stairs to grab my print jobs (although that is probably good for me).  Thanks sweetie!

Next I wanted to share with you a picture of a little visitor that was just driving Jack (our doggie) nuts the other day - he he - isn't he cute - he seemed to be saying...hey...let me in it's COLD out here!

I've been so busy the last few days that I didn't get around to posting pictures of the giveaway win I received from Deb over at Crows on the Cupola.  She had everything wrapped up so nicely in checkered bags and tan tissue paper.  She included this beautiful heart pillow, some yummy candles, a sweet prim heart pocket and a lovely handstitched 'true love' prim tag.  I love all the items Deb and thank you so much. 
Today I need to go to work for a little bit, but then I think I'll run into town to do a little shopping and check out the Thrift Store...last week I found this beautiful step basket for only $2.99!  I think I would like to put some bunnies and other dollies in there for Spring, along with some flower stems.  Wonder what treasures I will find this week....

I did want to remind everyone who joined the Bunny Challenge to get hopping on your project.  They are due mid-March and I am so anxious to see what everyone creates.  Remember to send me a picture (which I will post in a special section).  Once you send me a picture of your completed Basil the Bunny Challenge, I will add your name to the hat for my Easter giveaway.  I'm getting together the items for that and will be posting pictures in the next couple of weeks.  For any of you who has not yet signed up for the Challenge, just click the bunny picture to the right to be taken to the Challenge post and read all about it. 

It looks like I am fast approaching the mark of 200 Followers - and you all know what that means!  Another giveaway....yup...two giveaways going at once!  I'll be posting details on the second giveaway next week, so come on back to check it out.

Ok dears, time to get a move-on.  Have a great day my blogging friends!


  1. Hi Wendy,
    I love the picture of the squirrel there at the door! LOL! Too cute! I am really getting the itch to get out to some of my places very soon! All work and no play~ makes me a crabby momma!
    Have a good day!

  2. Wendy, love the picture of the squirrel, that is hilarious! Jack must have been going insane! Congratulations on your giveaway win, lovely goodies, and what a score on the stair basket, I love it! Working away on Basil, I have to work the next few days but will hopefully get him finished by the end of next week. Stay warm and think Spring! Deb

  3. Nice hubby and printer. Poor Jack...the squirrel is asking for trouble....lovely package.....the step basket was a good deal!

  4. I forgot about my bunny until this morning. It is well on its way now though.

  5. It looks like that cute little squirrel might be sorry if he made it inside!

  6. Aww, the poor lil squirrel was cold. It is so tempting to open the door for the stray critters that show up at my house.
