In Memory, Mr Mister Marten

It was just over a year ago my Marten left for the rainbow bridge. He was a beautiful boy, his picture drew me across the internet into the Richardson Animal Shelter, just to say hello. When the volunteer asked me which one I wanted, I said all three. So my Marten, Seal and Otter came home. They were so precious!



Soon it was time to get them fixed, but the boys begun fighting immediately. So I let Seal pick and she chose Otter; leaving Marten alone.


I was the big scary lady to Marten, he preferred my hubby, but I knew he wanted a bunny friend so off to find his Charisma we went.



Gorgeous arent' they? Marten was strong, he was brave, and he was in charge. He warmed up to me thanks to my love bug Charisma and I got quite attached to him. Marten loved his ears rubbed at the base, and would let me do it for as long as I wanted. Marten was never sick until one fatal day last year, he got gas then bloat. Bloat is a terrible thing, it can kill a bunny within 24 hours. The rest, I guess, is history now.

Marten 2003 - 2007

We will always love you big guy, run free and happy in the big meadow in the sky... Til we meet again.

So Sleepy...

Looking for something really cute this morning, and came across this website talkingegg.com http://talkingegg.com/humor/bunnyyawns.html and the cutest bunnies ever yawning. This is my fav #23:

Don't you love the paw prints?

Hare today...

Been playing with bunnies again, this time in jewelry. Added a few to the etsy shop, had some views. I love these golden bunny earrings, such fun buns: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=26484351
Sometimes though you have to dig through a stash, to see what treasures you discover. This black bunny is playing in a field of flowers, my lastest love: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=26542678But I hear the call of polymer clay again. I want to try my hand at some sculpture and I'm thinking Graysie is the perfect first project. Will have to keep planning, there is a lot of fur to consider.. (haha) Currently though, I'm practicing with some easier bunnies. Made from molds of bunny pieces past, these are the babies of our warren: Some work is still needed, but soon most of them will be looking for 'adoptive' homes. Ah, it's good to combine things that you love. Nose bonks to everyone!

House Visitors

I peaked out my back door and saw the cutest visitors, house wrens. I could hear them calling, there were four going in and out of this pot. They were so adorable!

I did eventually have to go out that door, and the Momma bird gave me quiet the speech! All four came back later to stay awhile. I took more pictures (much too dark to post) and you can see the mom giving me the "eye". I don't think I've ever been so scolded by a bird before!

Stop to smell the flowers

Home sick this weekend, so I took a stroll through the garden. Such a fabulous place, delicacy and mystery under every shadow or leaf. And of course, a few bunnies..

Had to bring a bloom inside, our new purple rose.

Daylilies, so fresh and clean


Love the coleus colors to brighten the shade.

Good night

Just too cute not to share, my trio of fun buns in the den; Bella, Bunko and Ferd. Patiently waiting for blueberries despite the big salad in the picture.
