However, on the bright side, I received a special and much-anticipated package in the mail today. As I posted here back in October, Donna of Lavender Rabbit Hoppenings had surprised me with a lovely necklace featuring Mr. Mick. I contacted her not long after that and asked her if she could make me some matching earrings. I had also noticed a lovely stretch bracelet with bunny pictures in her Etsy shop, and asked her if she could make one like it, but with pictures of Mick.
The earrings arrived first:
I am snagging the pic Donna sent me to show them off,
since she takes way better pictures than I do.
Aren't they gorgeous?! There was all kinds of *squee*-ing when I opened the box, especially when it turned out that Donna had included yet another surprise:
Now you see why I used Donna's photo before--
my camera no like close-up shots so much.
...a cute little matching adjustable ring. To. Die. For.
The bracelet took a little longer; there were many emails back and forth between Donna and myself, with pictures galore, until we got it all fine-tuned. I was so excited when I saw the package in the mailbox, I immediately had to rip it open:
The pctures DO NOT do it justice, people.
There are 8 pictures in all; more cute than jewelry should be allowed. :)
I immediately had to put it on and wear it to the vet's so I could show it off, and I have only taken it off since to take the pictures.
(Note: I really wear them on my right hand;
I had to move them to my left hand so I could take this picture.)
Thank you SO much, Donna--it is absolutely perfect!
One quick final note: I will be mailing out the Mickey holiday cards this week, any future vet trips not withstanding, so if you want one and haven't sent me your mailing address yet, be sure to email me and let me know.
