New Home For Mr Rabbit~~Giveaway

Good evening friends,
I know I have been missing in action, again
But with good reason, I think...will explain later

Look who has a new home,
Mr. Rabbit has come to stay
Oh,  look how adorable he is!!!

Tamera from Country At Heart was the hostess of a lovely giveaway
~~~I was the lucky winner ~~~
Tamera always keeps us entertained on her blog,
she is constantly doing terrific make overs
and always puts a smile on my face
As does this sweet Rabbit, with his long legs and arms.

Now, where should Mr Rabbit join us...
Mr Rabbit hanging from the Buttery,
OK, but~~~~~

Sitting on the hutch,
Better, but he got lost in the palm branches....

Sitting on my wood boxes and baskets display
Yes, that is it!!!
He looks just perfect guarding all my goodies
Little stuffed Bird setting in a basket
is a creation from Brenda
Another talented Prim Artist,
You must visit her blog and purchase her Prim Creations....

Thank you Tamera for hosting this generous giveaway
Mr Rabbit says,
I made the trip just fine and love my new Prim Home!!!


~~~Now for my latest Sewing Project~~~

Mr B and I are attending the reenactment of the
Wilsons Creek Battle
In honor of the 150th Anniversary 
of the Civil War and This Battle


I have taken on this "very large project" of making my dress,
bonnet, loons and purse
81/2 yards of fabric in the dress not counting the lining
I have made many vintage outfits in the past
Was the "costume lady" all through high school,
but this dress has been a challenge as I want it to be very period correct.
It is coming along and will share more pics  later
It is brown with blue trim accents and vintage tan crochet lace.


We can't forget Mr B~~~
He does not want to be in uniform but will wear period
trousers that will button in the front, no zippers (the need for this pattern)
I don't have to make his shirt
as we found a shirt at a flea market for 1.50, I can do a make over on it.
Purchased canvas button on suspenders,
He has old boots and several hats to choose from.

Honoring our soldiers 
Let us never forget their sacrifice...


Some say this was a dark period in our history
This War pitted brother against brother
fathers against sons
neighbors against neighbors...

Battle At Pea Ridge Arkansas

This War not only changed our Nation forever
It finally United us as well


Freedom for which it stands
Freedom for all mankind
