Retro Rabbits

I was feeling a bit off colour this morning. My body ached, head ached and I found myself slurring when I tried to speak. Everything was in slow motion. I don't think that I'm coming down with anything, just that the last few months have caught up with me. Luckily, today was one of DH's good days, so he swept in and took over so that I could have some time to relax. I slept all morning until I was gently woken with a cooked lunch.

Still needing some time to myself this morning and with a crafting mojo continuing to be MIA, I decided it was a good time to tidy up the little one's room. We don't really use it for her yet as she sleeps in our room, so it had become a dumping ground of late.

While sorting through her clothes (and getting quite teary putting away some of the gorgeous clothes she no longer fits into), I came across some of her kimono collection. They are way too cute to stay folded away, so some of them now help brighten up her space.

As I hung them I noticed, that I have quite a thing for the 1960s retro rabbits.

I'm hoping that as she grows up, she will too.

Those are beautiful. Did you make them for her?

I hope you'll feel a bit better soon. Take good care of yourself. I understand that there is a lot going on right now and I wish you a lot of strenght to get through this.

What child wouldn't grow up with 60s retro rabbit affinities given half a chance? (I see your poppet is getting half a chance).

Hope you're feeling waaaay spiffier tomorrow...

Retro Rabbit - what a fabulous title for a TV series. I would be hanging those kimonos out on show as well - they are absolutely beautiful. I do hope you are feeling a lot better - sometimes we all need a little time out.
