Faux Sugar Bunnies...


Rain, rain and more rain
afforded me the perfect excuse to play...

besides my hobby room
 is a room with a view,
 it overlooks the garden and it's a perfect place
to watch it rain and daydream...

(click photos to enlarge)

I am crazy for those sugar eggs that you look into
with the little Easter scene inside...


so when I bought a bag of these glittered rabbits,
who's colors were a bit too bright for me
I knew I wanted to sugar them :-)

there were sixteen in the bag for two dollars
so I'm gonna have to come up
 with some more ideas for the  rest!

first I painted them white,
then glittered them using plain white glue...

nothing fancy...


I am so happy with the sugar sweet pair...


she with a paper rose tied around her neck...


he with a pretty bouquet...
