Whatcha Working on Wednesday

I have been busy trying to get a few things completed this week. This is the first time I have gotten to participate in Leslie's Whatcha Workin on Wednesday for two weeks in a row! Shocker huh?
Well, as I have been mentioning, I have been bitten by the Spring bug! Last week I started making some prim rabbits. That of course led me to making prim carrots and eggs too!

I still have to draw some little faces on the bunnies. I am going to tie some homespun around their necks once I get it coffee-stained. The eggs turned out cuter than I could have imagined! I have them in great Spring colors too (but of course, had to "dirty" them up!"

I just have to put the green "tops" on these carrots and they will be finished. They are actually a lot more "grubbier" in person but they came out looking bright in this photo.
I am also working on a few before and after projects that I will post about later in the week. I have also been busy painting some of my thrift store finds that I posted yesterday. I can't believe the difference a little paint can make on some things! I bet if folks knew their goodies could look like they do after us gals make them over, they would have never parted with them in the first place! Lucky for us, they don't - so shhhhh!

The bunnies, eggs, and carrots are all cute. And yes, it is unbelievable what a little paint can do.

Love it all! Sorry about Cane's eye; We are in the midst of eye issues and woo wee! Eight times per day; every two hours I get to "wrassle" with Mr. NIles! :) He is usually good, but he hates the flush with saline. I sure hope Cane's other issues clear up quickly for you. Tell him hello!

So cute bunnies and eggs too. I made carrots last year and they were a hit!!! I need to get busy!!!
I just wanted to thank you for your support on my blog. I know we aren't the only ones going through a tough time. So many are, it is scary but the love and support of friends helps a lot!!!
Hugs and I hope things get better for you too!!!

Looks like you have been busy! I have been a slug lately! LOL! Just no motivation for much of anything these days. Too many appointments to keep and so on.
I can't wait to see your re-dos!
