Because I must have the nice things

I went on a Lavender Rabbit spending spree a week or so ago as a blogiversary gift to myself (and because I do believe that one cannot have enough jewelry, pocketbooks or bunnehs) and have finally gotten around to  taking pictures of all my new goodies.

First of all, let me tell you that when you order stuff from Donna, it is like Christmas or your birthday every day of the year. She packages everything up so nicely, and always includes a sweet card--and of course, Mr. Mick gets a giftie or two as well.

*happy bunny dance*

There is much *squee*-ing and ribbon-untying and box-opening, which leads to more *squee*-ing, since Donna also included some unexpected gifts as well. Let's start with the bunny stuff:

To. DIE. For.
How awesomely Alice In Wonderland is that?

I'm sure you've seen this adorable watch before; Donna offered this in one of her giveaways, and while I didn't win said giveaway, I let Donna know that I wanted one if she had any more to sell. Now, I finally have it. 

Dutchie says, "Buy me right NOW". Yes, sir! 

A Dutchie necklace, for when I feel like flashing some serious bunnitude. I just love the birdies (they're either swifts or swallows, I'm not sure). The earrings were a surprise gift, as were the ones with the next piece:

Heeeeere, fishie, fishie, fishie...

Everyone knows me as the "crazy bunny lady", but I'm also into tropical fish as well, so when I saw this koi necklace I just had to have it. Donna's also gotten me hooked (no pun intended) on her memory wire bracelets; they are just so pretty and sparkly. 

Last but not least:

I'd like to be...under the sea...
in an octopus' garden...in the shade.

I am not normally a fan of the color pink, but it just looks so right on this piece. You don't necessarily realize it's an octopus at first (although I did) because the swirling tentacles form such a lovely shape. This picture truly does it no justice, it is absolutely beautiful. Thanks so much, Donna!

"Did I hear something about 'gifts for Mick'? 
You'd better not be holding out on me, Mum..."

She is amazing! I've ordered a few pieces from her. Her love for her bunny crafts (and real bunnies) is tangible in her work.

Yeah! So glad you liked the pieces and the extras. Would love to see pictures of you wearing the pieces :) Although Bella would warn Mickey that bracelets do not belong on bunny heads...
