some embers from the coal & pine cone fire turned into hares yesterday
and made their way into my etsy shop ...
that is resilent to bleaching or fading or colour removers. Long story short about that coming soon!
Note: the baby hare above is made from a scrappier scrap of this material that has been thru the wringer (a few times) so much so that it fell apart!
too cute to recycle bin them, so I added a scrap of my favourite reindeer wrapping paper, that has been too adorable to use for the last year, but this year I gave in and used a morsel of it
and more delights such as these small size Starbucks take away cups with a fox and bird and the words
"When we're together every day is a snow day'" aaaw! isn't that just so romantic and sweet!
so ofcourse I had to have a few of them too to scatter around the base of the tree
and when I was in Stavanger, Norway, the other month I bought this little canister when I saw these hungry furry tiny critters taking winter peanuts on the wrapping
amazing how cute they are! even more amazing that I only bought the one and not 10, like I usually like to do. And it was only a $1.
What was I thinking that day?
so it's sitting on my big present box, amongst the unused robin xmas bags (bought them for the beautiful picture ofcourse and no intention of using them ... ever),
and beside the unused tinsel stuffed into one of the smaller robin bags
and next to my darn cute doggy paw print advent calendar (also unused at the moment - I did go as far as opening my box of chocolates to fill it but there were less than 24 in it, and after a cup of tea there were less than 10 remaining, so no point of stuffing stockings then eh?)
and before you shake your head about my woeful xmas attitude, yes that is a photo of Wesley from 2 days ago eating his opened xmas present of a bag of dried carrot pieces which he loves!
I mean, who is getting a surprise here? Wesley who has the best nose going, he smelt the carrots thru the bubble mailer when they came thru the letter box,
surprised if I actually do wrap them all up just to look at them for 12 days with Wesley by my side before we unwrap them all - already knowing what's inside?
even Winter Hare looks frazzled :)
might take a trip down to Starbucks and bring back some more tiny cups and some bigger fox cups .....
