Each day - little by little - I have been introducing new "Springthyme" goodies into the store...without compromising our Open House that will be March 4th. I am just putting items in that can be replaced quickly if (lately that is a BIG if) we should sell out !! (those bunnies in the basement started towards the stairs today and it was all I could do to hold them back...whew!!) We certainly don't want them showing their sweet little faces until open house!!
Spring candle rings in different sizes, some vintage postcard pillows and Easter Egg pillows made by me were some of the goodies displayed today. I drew a new rabbit and am making it into a pillow - just a cookie cutter shape - very plain and simple - I have to decide on what kind of eyes he is going to have - eyes are always a problem with me. I do not like the new ones that are painted to look real...pieces of art I will admit, but they just give me the "willies" as they look like paintings and too real!! I realize I am in the minority with this just by looking at how many sell on websites but still.....I am olde school and just like the very plain and simple...Now after saying that today a sweet little guy came in and wanted to be part of the store....his eyes are painted but what I call "prim painted" and not all "real" looking. He had such a good "soul" I couldn't help but tell him to stay.....BUT he has no name and I was thinking maybe it would be a fun thing to have a giveaway for finding the perfect name for him!!! Just leave a comment with your suggestion and I will in turn give all the names for him to choose.....hey...maybe that new rabbit pillow I am working on will be a good giveaway.... I will post a picture as soon as I come up with some eyes for him!!
