An Angel of Friendship Delivered on a Sunday

Sunday morning I was sipping coffee and knitting a sock and Steve said, “there’s a package for you.”

A surprise delivery.

I opened it up and there was an unexpected gift of a Willow Tree Angel of Friendship with a lovely message. ❤️ I have her where I can see her when I’m “working” in my former dining room, now transformed into a workshop space.

Thank you, Carrie.

Peter Rabbit and his Family

Peter Rabbit and his mother as she was returning from the market, and his sisters, Flopsy, Mopsy and Cottontail. They got to have blackberries for supper.

Peter Rabbit was given to me by my father sometime in the ’60s, the first of the collection.

 

Peter, his mother and his sisters

Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cottontail. The ones who did what they were supposed to do.  Mother Rabbit returning from market. And Peter. Looking enormous compared to the rest of his family.

No one I know, actively collects ceramic figurines these days.

Or wants to dust them.

But they look dear to me. I took them out from behind the glass to photograph them. Peter certainly is larger than his mom.

I know, two cute rabbit posts in a week.

Still Life With Stuff in the House

My next door neighbor, who is an artist, suggested I put things together in my house, create a still life and photograph them.

I shot the flowers in the pottery vase the other day.

Here is today’s collection.
