**CLICK IMAGE FOR ADDITIONAL PHOTOS**...I took one of my earlier designs of a bunny and changed him a bit to create this little guy standing on a carrot (he had been on a cabbage leaf earlier!). I stitched him to a piece of 100% wool and attached him to this old, wooden, robin's egg blue/teal carrying box that I found in an antique store in Comfort, TX (isn't that a pleasant town name?). I have added floss for the greens of the carrot and am including a full box of dried angel vine for the bedding. It is all ready for your choice of beautiful Spring eggs to place on top! The box measures 7"H x 7" W x 6"D...the handle adds another 2 3/4" to the overall height, but the handle is movable and can be turned down. I am kindly asking 89.00, plus postage for this item. I gladly accept paypal, MasterCard/Visa or personal checks. Please email mommadonnatx@gmail.com or countrykeepers@att.net to purchase this item. Thanks so much for your visit!

BUNNY AND BEE SKEP HAVE SOLD.......Tulip and House available....! I have made 4 small punch needle designs to fit into a crimped edge mini pan and then placed a magnet on the back side (is removable). Sorry, the harsh light washed out the color of the tulip. The petals are a soft peach and yellow. I used Valdani threads and each of these designs are hand drawn. The pieces measure roughly 2 1/4" wide and I am kindly asking 18.00 each, plus a small amount for postage. Please designate whether you want the bunny(sold), tulip, bee skep(sold), or house. I gladly accept paypal, MasterCard/Visa or personal checks. Please email mommadonnatx@gmail.com or countrykeepers@att.net to make a purchase. Thanks so much for visiting us at PHM!
