Peppermint Candy

by greenrabbitdesigns

I’d like you all to meet Peppermint Candy! 🙂

Peppermint Candy loves sweets of all kinds but is especially partial to mint humbugs (luckily there is always a good supply of them at my house as I’m quite partial to them myself!). She’s really looking forward to Easter as there is always a good supply of sweets and chocolate at that time of year.

Peppermint Candy has been crocheted in mint green yarn which is of course her favourite colour!!

She is dressed in a white cotton cardigan with sugar pink flower buttons which match her bow and a candy striped skirt.

I can’t tell you how much I’m enjoying making these little bunnies, dreaming up their names and stories and little outfits.

I’ve already started another one!!!

Well I don’t know about you but I’m definitely not in love with today’s weather!! Grey, damp and cold. 🙁 I so want to get back into my garden, I’ve so much I want to do!

Wishing you all a happy new week and fingers crossed for some more sunshine. 🙂

Deares Vivienne,

Peppermint Candy is BEAUTIFUL,Vivienne! Do you enjoy sewing up the clothes best of all, I wonder? How handy to have a rabbit who loves the same sweets as you living in the same house. This ensures you NEVER run out of humbugs 😉

Yes, I can abolutely imagine how much you love making your rabbits and making up their names and stories! I feel exactly the same about my humble creatures too. Mine may not take up that much time to concoct (about 10-11 hours in total) but the hours of imagining and dreaming that go into each one…

Ahhh, she is so cute and her outfit is adorable.
What fun. I can’t wait to see the next one 🙂

She is sooo sweet! And I love that you give them a name and a story. 😉

What a sweetie she is Vivienne, you have made her such a gorgeous little outfit too. I am looking forward to seeing more bunnies…they are just too cute! We seem to still have the sunshine today…another gorgeous day with clear blue skies but there is some change due soon. Let’s hope we get some good weather for the bank holiday weekend. Have a lovely week,

Love, love, love the new bunny and the story! She’s a beauty, and that outfit is adorable. You’re so talented with your hook – please keep these pretties coming!

Have a great week, Vivienne, and just a few more days until Easter!

P.S Mint humbugs…I haven’t had any for such a long time…I think I need some too!

She is so lovely, what a little sweet face! Hope she is still enjoying those humbugs 😉 The weather here has been sunny though cold, supposed to be sleet and snow for the rest of the week though so glad have not put the blankets and hot water bottles away yet! Have fun making more bunnies, looking forward to seeing them xxx

She’s just gorgeous Vivienne, and looks beautifully made. A rabbit after my own heart enjoying sweeties & candies! Soon you will have a whole family of them.
Take a look at Folksy home page today as it’s Rabbity items.
Bit chilly here, I knew we’d pay for that beautiful warm week! Let’s hope for improvement at Easter. x

Hola Vivienne.
Que bonita es la conejita que has hecho y que nombre tan lindo tiene.
Hoy está lloviendo en Barcelona, siempre llueve y hace frio en Semana Santa.

Beautiful Bunny, mint is such a lovely pastel colour.

She really is ‘truly scumptious!’

Such a pretty bunny the colour is gorgeous and such a lot of work! You wouldn’t like the weather here any better sweetie, it’s blizzard conditions outside, who knows how many inches of snow we’ll wake up to tomorrow, lol.

I love your little bunnies! You have made them soooo carefully with a lot of love! Heavy rain here – definitely a day for inside. Happy Easter Vivienne.

Hi Vivienne, I just love your Peppermint Bunny ….. she really makes me smile, the stripes, the colours, but the sweet face you have given her is just adorable. Yep, a Happy Smile Bunny :0)
I just want to thank you Vivienne for your comments to my blog, especially this week, I just needed a friendly note. Thank You for visiting me so often.

Oh my GOODNESS – that is the sweetest thing and in a lovely color! Well done! I really must get around to some chrochet soon, but I kind of lost the mood for it right now. I guess I´ll get into mood sooner or later! 🙂

Happy Easter! 🙂
