~ Maverik ~

Such a sad week for us here at Our Little Acorn Cottage.
Our little Maverik passed away.
For those of you who don't know, Maverik was our bunny.
I'm pretty sure he died from old age. He was old when we rescued him.
Someone took Maverik to the Animal Sanctuary and told them to feed him to their eagle.
I'm so glad that our friends thought to call us to see if we wanted him.
Maverik is NOT eagle food.
I love this picture of Maverik and Annie.
Annie is Kent's dog and she is so sweet and gentle she knew Maverik was part of our family and she would never hurt him.
He didn't like living in his cage, (can't say that I blame him) so one day we turned him loose hoping he would stay and he did!
He loved hopping around our yard and would go next door to Grandma Bliss' house but he never went any farther than that.
Such a sweet little guy. We will miss him.

Wednesday ~ Wee Ones ~

I love Wednesday ~ Wee Ones ~
I missed last week and I wanted to put this cute little doll from the Boyds Collection on for you to see.
She is ~ Yesterdays Child ~
She is all dressed up in her sweater and hat with her little suitcase ready for a day of traveling.

I thought she would look cute on top of this old case I found at a yard sale a few years ago.
I would love to find a set of larger "Old" suitcases like this little one.

Have a Fabulous day and be sure to check out some of the other Wednesday ~ Wee Ones ~

Wednesday ~ Wee Ones ~

I love Wednesday ~ Wee Ones ~ but I'm not the best at this blogging thing.
Last week I joined in on Wednesdays ~Wee Ones ~ for the first time and not being very good at this I failed to mention the Wonderful blogging ladies that were doing WWO before me.
It's because of their blogs that I decided to join in on the fun.
So, if you have a chance, please stop by and say hello to...Merilyn @ Somewhere In My Time
Linda Q @ Royal Touch
and Lavender Dreams.
This doll is from The Hamilton Collection. She is much prettier in person. I'm not the best photographer. I paired her up with one of my little vintage poodles. I think they look adorable.
Thanks for stopping by.
Make today an Amazing day:)

Blue Monday

For ~ Blue Monday ~ I thought I would show you all some quilt blocks that I made.
This was a, Quilt Block Of The Month Class that I took and as you can see, it only lasted 5 months. For some reason after 5 months the class ended. I had really good intentions of doing 7 more blocks on my own but life is busy and I have been puting it off. Now I am getting excited to get back to sewing the rest of the blocks.
This is going on my....(Projects to Finish) list.

Hopefully one day I will post a picture of the finished quilt with all 12 blocks!
Have a Fabulous Week!

Wednesday ~ Wee Ones

I'm joining in today on "Wednesday ~ Wee Ones"
This is a doll I made at a doll class several years ago.
She is called, "Dimples" My mother made her dress.
She is so cute I thought with her red dress she should be out here helping decorate our home for Valentines Day!

Blue Monday

For "Blue Monday" I thought I would post a picture of one of my bathroom shower curtain's.
I LOVE Toile.
This bathroom is decorated in blue & brown. This is the bathroom that Branson and Bridger claim so that is why I added in the brown to make it a little more "boyish"

It seems like this time of year, bunnies keep poppin up all over my house.
I will be showing you more of them soon.
Have a Great Monday!
