Our bunny
Tinker boy
Beaumont SOLD
Robot 1..1..The Easter bunny Gave him to Memphis last year..
made by M. Patrizio

So....the bunnies went into the shop and hopped right out....thanks everyone that purchased one of my bunnies. This batch was really hard for me to part with and I still have not listed Glory the Green bunny above...I just love her too much. We'll see. Anywho...had the flu awhile back and now I have some abdominal issues...went to doctor this morning. They are ruling out everything with blood tests and urine tests....good times. The Doctor thinks I should go to a GI doc which means a colonoscopy for this lucky girl!!! I have had a distended abdomen since last Thursday. I now get to eat a bland diet and take Vicodin for the pain that never stops. He believes it's an intestinal issue...so looks like I will finally be offically diagnosed with IBS!! Ok...I sound sooo awful. I am truly sorry...I'm afraid I am a bit of a crab. Ok..onto happier things. This time I would like to share some blogs I read on a regular basis...so here we go...(keep in mind this is just a handful...there are lots more blogs to share with you later...)

So today we went to Ballet, hit Top Pot, went to Display & Costume, hit the Fabric store, Long Drugs, Post Office, went home packed a lunch, met our super cutie friend that is 6 months prego at the park, swung her by Madison Market for a carrot, dropped her off at her doctor's appointment, came home returned emails, walked the dog, ate dinner and then my amazing friend Andrea (Who Rocks) cut my hair.

So....Mema (my Ma) came for a visit today and it was wonderful. I love watching her and M interact and I LOVE seeing my Ma. She is super amazing and I only wish her life was easier. She does ok but I wish she would meet a nice man to share her life with...anywho it's always wonderful to see her. I am going to do a photo series of paperdolls. I was playing around a bit today and it was super fun. I am feeling much better but now have a new health issue. Don't worry it's not serious. This weekend was a bit insane. We decided to take the big shelves out of our tiny bedroom and reuse them for our living room storage, floor to ceiling painted white to blend in, storage unit. They will look fab when done but right now our bedroom has piles and piles of my books and photos from photo school. AAAHHHH...so I went into a tailspin, full fledged OCD attack and got rid of oooodles of stuff. Sold some books, clothes and gave a bunch of stuff away. It feels good....of course I'm not done yet and it will be at least a month until or place is put back together but when it's done it will be amazing.
Now some more of my flickr favs....
This photo is very comforting to me somehow...
Love this guy sooo much...how amazing
I have always wanted a Sphinx cat!!!!
I must have this.....
So cool....I am obsessed with chairs!!!
Been thinking about getting another Chi Chi I heart white ones!
Super cool bunny

Vera the Jack Rabbit
Oskar the Robin
Mildred the Owl
Otto the Jack Rabbit

I just dropped off a few(6 to be exact) Love=Creatures at Schmancy!
It was so very nice to see Kristen. She is such a wonderful person and I hope it is mutual but I always feel like I could chat with her forever...well for a long time anyway. If it's not mutual she's even nicer than I thought she was :)! The store looks great and so does she. I then went into Nancy which was really great. Kate was super fun to chat with and I liked her a lot. Lots of really cool items that were super afforable and unique. (yep that's my owl on the link to the article about Nancy...isn't that cool?)
Then I went to Daiso in Westlake Center where everything is $1.50 and it was amazing. I heart Daiso!!I got some storage containers and some cute little stuff for my daughter. A mini toaster, mini display cases, mini chest of drawers for her jewelry, a fan and some cool stuff for her Easter Basket. I abosolutely loved it. So I had a mini break. Feeling better but not out of the woods yet. Anywho...happy weekending to all...here are a few more of my flickr favs.....

Anywho I just wanted to say a quick hello and a big thank-you to Heidi Kenney for linking me on her blog. That was a really nice surprise!!! I have always admired Heidi.
