Which one would you choose?

This past weekend we went to a bead show in Grapevine. It is always one of my favorite shows, but this year was really fun. I found lots of new bunny pieces. Yippee!!!  haha.  So here is my dilemma: the pieces I was deciding on for June's giveaway are no longer in the running. The new pieces are just too awesome. I mean truly awesome. I can't decide which one to use, or even if I want to part with any of them :)  So I will let you choose, do you have a favorite?

First all the cute pieces
Aren't they great? Handpainted from Russia. These are just from one vendor in the show. I have other vendors who also brought me new pieces, but you will just have to wait to see those. :)

Now the choices:

A cute brown bunny, one on a brown stone and a smaller one on a black stone. Then we have the awesome duo of a dutchie and a kitty - rose, gray or blue background.  I know, I know.. too many choices!! How about some close ups:


So tell me, which one do you like better?

More Bunny Pictures

Ok, you asked for it, you got it.  Some more random bunny pictures from the weekend..

My gorgeous Charisma, looking rather - um - fluffy


Dot, aka PolkaDot, giving me her look when I was talking to her about doing the drawing.


Seal.. telling me off for taking away her hay, giving her new hay then snapping the flashing thing at her instead of leaving her in peace to eat.

Bunnies, can't live without them or the attitude...

May's Winner is...

We had some fun today. Sunday is always cleaning day and I saved Dot's and Cooper's cage for last. I guess I waited too long, as Dot wasn't much interested in drawing for me. My only saving grace is she was really interested in the dried apples I had as her reward.  Finally I got Dot's nose in the bowl...

And out came:
