I’m Wishing, I’m Wishing…

No I’m not Snow White with her head over the well wishing for the one I love. But it certainly is white with plenty of snow here. This is Niagara Falls a few miles from where I live. This year it has been so cold that Mother Nature has provided us with some very spectacular ice formations. An ice bridge covers the US side and it is fantastic!

The critters are all still nestled in their respective warm places waiting for some sign of Spring…

I’ve been busy playing with mice. Mice for pinkeeps and bunnies too. I will be offering a workshop in mouse pinkeeps just it time for Mother’s Day. Props and vintage snippets will be included. For more information please contact me or stay tuned for more information to follow. In the mean time stay warm and keep wishing for Spring!

* A special thank you to Valda for braving the elements to take the pic of the Falls.

Winter Weary or Bad Hair Day

The horizon is an endless sea of white. The flakes keep falling and the temps keep dropping, but if I sit to ponder the thought the days seem to blur from one to the next.
So I concluded I would think of something else a little on the lighter, silly side…

Does a bunny ever have a bad hair day? Take for example my daughter’s rabbit Max. A cute, cuddly little fellow when he was just young.

As the months have passed and the snow keeps falling Max has gotten hairier…

And hairier!!
So when the snow stops falling will Max’s hair stop growing. Of course not. Gratefully my daughter is harvesting it for me and when she has an envelope full she’ll send it this way. I have a friend who’s a spinner and angora yarn is beautiful. Soft, fluffy and mottled in colour… just like Max.

Keep warm.

* A special thank you to Max for posing for the pictures and my daughter for taking them.
