If you were a penguin ....

Gotta say ...
if you were a penguin
then I guess you would be loving our Dunedin winter,
but last time I looked
I wasn't dressed in black and white,
and I sure don't remember
signing up for a trip to the Antarctic,
so what the heck!!
Yeah,
I know it's winter,
but there's winter,
and then there's winter,
and this part of winter is not supposed to happen
until next month
or the one after.
All I can say,
is
Brrrrrrrr!!!!
And so to celebrate winter,
I have had the pleasure
of the head cold from hell
for the past week!!!
Today though ... nearly back to firing
on all cylinders,
but this week really hasn't been much fun,
and as the child will all too quickly point out
to anyone who is listening,
I'm not the most joyous of creatures,
when the head is trying to explode
outwards through my ears,
and the sun don't shine!!!
But like I said,
today ...
the sun is nearly shining again,
in all respects:)
And in the mail today,
was one super gorgeous wee reason,
that the sun was shining.
A bunnie came to visit...


... well, actually, she's going to stay,
'cos I've been spoilt.
My dear friend,Elizabeth,
sent me this little treasure.
Thank you so much,
Elizabeth,
she is just the cutest little bunnie:)

Honestly,
I've hardly touched a knitting needle, crochet hook
or sewing needle these past couple of weeks,
but I did find this during the week...


...and I'm thinking it could be a fun project,
to strip it back,
repaint it,
and some new fabric.
I'll keep you posted :)

Now,
before I go,
over on the other blog
I've got another little giveaway happening,
so go have a wee look,
you might like the fabrics:)

Did you know that chocolate is good for curing a cold?
It is, truly ...

See you
Jenny :)

Oh dear, doesn't sound too much fun there Jenny. Didn't you know that chocolate is good for everything that ails you ; ).
Well I'm wearing black and white, and I guess I sort of 'waddle' a bit but by crikey this Winter is a doozy.
keep warm and get well soon

I heard 50gms of chocolate a day keeps the Doc away!
How sweet is Elizabeth, if it is the Elizabeth I know, then she is a sweetie.
Have you tried Thompson's liquid echinacea.....good stuff.

I think chocolate is good for everything too. I tried Whittakers peanut butter the other day yummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. Please Mr Bunny arrived at your place safely. Love that piece of furniture. i've just tried to do up a sea chest, but, not happy with result. I'm thinking I'm going to have to start all over again!!!!!!!!!
