Your bunnies are adorable Vivienne. They just make me smile 🙂
Your garden flowers are looking very lovely also.

What a fun post Vivienne, I hummed along and was delighted to see your pretty maids. Your bunnies are just so cute and beautifully made. I am sure they will “hop”out of your shop.
Your flowers are all very pretty. I am amazed I see to have a 2nd flush of runner beans, not woody at all..really sweet ;0)

Hello dear Vivienne,

These are the sweetest maids 😉 and i was just about to say, that the names are just prefect but Amanda said it before me there. I am so happy to see your garden still in green&flowery, I’ll post about mine soon…

Wonderful weekend to you too!

Your maids are pretty indeed!

My heart has gone all fluttery 😉 I think you and I have quite a lot in common. I really like the way you set the scene with the nursery rhyme and flowers. I really, really think I must purchase one of your rabbits for my little cherub’s (ha, ha!) Christmas present. I must wait at least until the beginning of next month though as my bank manager will rap me on my knuckles. 🙂

Thank you for making me smile today, Vivenne.

Oh I love this – I haven’t heard Mary, Mary for ages, I’d almost forgotten about it and now I’m remembering all sort of old nursery rhymes. Lovely photos and very cute rabbits! Bethx

Hi Vivienne, I’m so behind in reading your blog but I’ve seen the little bunnies on Facebook and they are looking so pretty, I love the muted tones of these two. The garden is still looking good, love those silvery bells. Sally x
