Shhhh!! we are sleeping
















Two very sleepy bunnies have their own patchwork blankets and wool stuffed pillows, with a little crochet detail. They have somewhere to hang their clothes and rest their weary heads what more could a bunny possibly need? Maybe something to occupy themselves with....

perhaps some knitting
 
 
 
Whilst not doing the housework I  have been playing, I found these bunny bunk beds in a local antiques yard last year and thought they would be perfect for the bunnies so I went back to save them.
 
It was painted a bright blue with brown varnish, under all the grime I found this cute print on the bottom of a bunk, it had been covered in sticky glue and stripey brown paper. I washed it and it actually came up ok, but it had ripped so I have saved it for a smaller project.
.


Here are some more lost friends in their new home.

The one at the bottom isn't too sure?
]Thanks, again to Jane from teawagon tales for sourcing me some more of the blue wallpaper. There is a little thankyou on its way to you.

Enjoy the rest of the week, I am off to find more reasons to avoid housework.

Your little bunnies are so delightful and look so snug in their beds.
And those patchwork duvets are just what a bunny needs to keep her warm at night.... Lucky little bunnies.....xx
