Tuesday's Treasure with Melody

Good morning everyone. Tuesday has rolled around again which means "Treasures" are to be found here and over at the lovely MELODY'S blog
Being a girl who loves a theme and seeing as Easter is just down the street I am sharing as my 'treasure' today the lovely handmade "Sweet Hunny Bun". I have had her for many years and she was a gift. I fell in love with her when I saw her in one of the Bear magazines and a dear friend with big ears (not as big as Hunny) was listening and made her for me.
She has enormously long ears, a beautiful dress with vintage buttons and a quilted vest which has star buttons stitched on the tips. Matching quilted wings. All in homespun except for the little hearts appliqued on her ears, vest and dress which have matching vintage buttons stitched over the hearts.. She used to have a halo with a star too but a very naughty staffy boy that lived with us decided it was a good chew toy when he was a puppy so she has a halo in spirit only now. In her paw she carries a lovely wooden heart with a lovely saying on it and you know how soppy old me loves sweet words. I don't know who designed my sweet rabbit and I gave her her name but it was love at first sight....so thank you!
You will notice Hunny Bun is holding a beautiful bunny tin. This was part of my Easter gift from my friends Easter swap from the gorgeous Sandy N. from Sandys Patchwork Angel I was thoroughly spoiled and here are the rest of my lovely gifties....
I would love to tell you the yummy Lindt bunny is in tact but alas his demise was swift and I assure you completely painless. I am hoping if I leave out my gorgeous little Easter basket the "Other Bunny" may fill it to the brim with more choccies......I know I am just a little 'gimme Pig'.
Do you have something, someone or somewhere you treasure....pop over to Melody's and share it with us.
Blessings Michelle xx

  1. Sweet Hunny Bun is just that, so sweet. What a great design using mainly the calico, sometimes less is so much more. Great swap, that little bunny rug is gorgeous. Don't feel bad, a lot of choc bunnies are being humanely gobbled up at this time of year! Tracee xx
