I collect snowbabies. My cousin gave me this snowbaby...it's a bunny. I think it is so cute. Very appropriate for a cold Spring with snow in the air. I remember having pretty Spring clothes to wear to Church, when I was a girl, and then it would be cold and I'd have to wear those dreadful snowpants. Ughhh! When I was young...we always had a hat and gloves for Easter wear.
I made this little village in the 70's. I bought the kit at Lee Wards in Elgin. I think it is balsa wood. I have kept it wrapped and in plastic. It wouldn't be Easter without this little village.The two beanie babies are a gift from a dear friend. I remember when she and I were searching and searching for these little cuties. I ended up giving mine to the grandkids..all but a few.
My mother-in-law made these for me. I have kept them for all these years. They have survived several moves. I have never liked clowns, but these guys have a special place in my heart.
Now the final bunny. I used old quilts that had holes in them for crafts at one time. I made all kinds of stuffed animals. I loved going to Church sales to find bedspreads and quilts that were no longer usable. I especially liked chenille bedspreads. The cutest teddy bears could be fashioned from them.
That's about it.....except for the goose on the front porch. She is out there greeting people in her Easter frock....I guess I should take pity on her and put her cap and sweater back on. Snow's in the forecast.
