Beautiful Bunny

I've received a very pretty parcel in the post today.
A week or so ago I left a comment on a blog post by Vivienne of Green Rabbit Designs. To be honest I didn't give much thought to the fact that Vivienne was giving away one of her crochet rabbits as Vivienne and I often exchange comments and I always admire her lovely rabbits. I didn't think for one minute I might win.
 
 
 
But I did win and today my parcel arrived. To be honest I would have been delighted just to have received this label which is so pretty... but I am quite thrilled with the little bunny.

 
I'm not a particularly "soft toy" type of girl but "Posie" the rabbit really is gorgeous and so beautifully finished. Her cardigan is exquisite and she is so much softer and smaller than I imagined.

 
And any thoughts I might have had on winning of finding a suitable little girl to have Posie have been cast aside because I rather want to keep her all to myself. And anyway, she looks quite at home on the dresser... and it would be rude to give her away.

 
Thank you Vivienne!

  1. Like you, I am not a soft toy person either but - I would love to live with a rabbit like Posy, she really is exquisite. Lucky girl, Gina.

  4. What a charming and delightful prize. I would want to keep her for myself too. I always admire beautifully made things and miniature ones need extra skill. The tiny crocheted daffodil is such a lovely touch.

  9. I agree, wonderful prize, but I can't help thinking the whole exorcism thing has got a bit out of hand. You'll be having dreams about giant rabbits with knitted hobbit feet and wearing soft cardies eating Frida Kahlo on toast next...
