Beautiful Bunny...

Last Saturday I posted "Beautiful Bunny" for Pink Saturday. I found this little darling at the thrift store for a mere $3. He looks so pretty in my Tea Rose bedroom on the desk next to my little teacup lamp! I just couldn't believe my good fortune...why just look at his snow-white fur and the delicate pink roses that he sports around his neck! It was love at first sight!!!

My Sweet Love Story...

After finding Beautiful Bunny, I was just mesmerized by all beautiful bunnies so I decided to see if there were any of these precious little darlin's on ebay. Ohhh my, I just couldn't believe my eyes....right there on ebay was another Beautiful Bunny...he was much smaller and sitting atop the prettiest little glass trinket box! He's an identical twin to Beautiful Bunny the 1st...he has the same snow-white fur and delicate pink roses...in fact, he has the same touch of gold trim around his little ears! To read more about Beautiful Bunny and the Tea Rose bedroom just click here.

This is where the sweet love story begins...

Since I found Beautiful Bunny's identical twin on ebay...I hit the "watch auction" button...it would be a couple of days before the auction went out. I watched and watched...and then...I forgot about the auction! Yes, you heard me right...I forgot about the auction!!! I checked and sure enough...the auction was finished and there wasn't even the hope that Beautiful Bunny would be relisted because someone had bought him! Ohhhh NOOOOO!!! He was gone...forever lost to me!!! I really was disappointed, I mean how often is it that you find a twin to something you have fallen in love with?

Fast forwarding now... Later that day my honey came home from work! I told him that I had missed the auction for Beautiful Bunny and that someone had bought him. Honey just grinned!!! Then he told me that at 5am that morning he bid on Beautiful Bunny and won the auction!

My honey bought Beautiful Bunny for me...is that not the sweetest love story that you've ever heard??? I mean, come on girls...how many men actually pay that much attention to the many, many "little wants" of their wives? It was just a little trinket box with a Beautiful Bunny on top. My Russell always pays attention...he spoils me really!!! I am so touched by this sweet and sentimental gesture...it may just be the very best gift ever!!! Thank you, honey...you're the bestest of best husbands...and I adore you!!!



Beautiful Bunny the 1st and Beautiful Bunny the 2nd...



Isn't Beautiful Bunny the 2nd just precious? I just adore the delicate pink roses tipped in gold...

This is a hand-crafted porcelain bunny made by a dear sweet friend for me many years ago! Just look at the hand painted flowers! This precious bunny also resides atop the desk in my Tea Rose bedroom.



A thank you note to my honey...for all that he is to me!!!




Well my friends...thank you for letting this sentimental gal indulge in the telling of her love story!!! I hope that you enjoyed "Pink Saturday" as much as I did! I always love and appreciate your visits...you all mean so much to me!!! Please leave me a comment and let me know that you were here...

Love ya'll,
Chari

Your bunnies are gorgeous and your husband is wonderful. That is exactly something my husband would have done for me. Your Russell is a gem. Don't let a day go by without telling him so. ♥

MyThoughtsMyVoice said...

How lucky and blessed you are to have such a sweet husband. He's perfect for you :-) Love love love your story.

And you're right they are twins. They have the same designs right to the pink roses. Maybe it's a set. I wonder if the bunnies are not twins but actual triplets or quadruplets even hhhhhhhmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm :-)

Does that make you wanna search more for the "possible" lost bunnies?

Happy Pink Saturday!

Oh, what a great story! Your husband gets a prize for thoughtfulness. I love the pink bunnies. Happy Pink Satuday!

TRES BELLE said...

Chari,

That is one the most sweetest story I have ever heard. How sweet of your husband to do that. Know what I think? I believe that bunny was intended for YOU and even though you forget about it, someone upstairs remembered through your husband.

Happy Pink Saturday.

Happy PINK SATURDAY! Russell sure stepped in and made your day by purchasing that bunny. Kudos for how your lamp and bunnies are displayed on that table. Crocheted piece on table just sets off everything. It looks so romantic!
