Happy Monday, my wonderful blog friends!
I feel like i am totally out of the loop! Last Thursday, we headed to Raleigh to surprise my mom for her 70th birthday, so i have been away from the computer for days. We had a wonderful weekend. I went to the cat shelter, Safe Haven for Cats, where my mom volunteers and helped clean and feed the precious kitties there. The facility is amazing! Every city should have a cat rescue just like theirs. Next stop...Suzanna's Antiques! My mom is an artist and loves to create broken china mosaics, so we dropped off some of her artwork at Susanna's. To top off the day, we headed to Chapel Hill for lunch and some reminiscing. (My parents met at UNC and so did my my husband and I.) We ate at Mama Dip's...the ultimate in southern comfort food...and then walked down Franklin Street and through campus. It was clear and warm and sunny....perfect Tarheel heaven!! On Saturday, we enjoyed another sunny day walking around the flea market and my parent's neighborhood. That night, we went to a special birthday dinner with relatives at a fantastically delicious restaurant, Magnolia Grill, in Durham. Last but not least, we watched our team win their Final Four game!!!! GO HEELS!!!
What a lovely weekend....sigh....it was hard to leave mom and dad and come back to Kentucky yesterday. Back to reality!!
It is cold, rainy and downright dreary here, so i decided to do something to perk things up a bit. It is definitely time for a giveaway, so in honor of Easter, I am offering this polka dotted mini rabbit to you. He was hand sculpted with paperclay, painted with acrylics, embellished with a ribbon collar and placed on a vintage tart tin pedestal. The whole piece measure about 4" tall. If you'd like to win this little treasure, just post a comment. The winner will be announced on Friday (April 10).
