Meet the new addition...It's a Girl! (and a contest!!)
hehehe...oh, don't act surprised! You knew it was BOUND to happen. Yup, got me a bunny -- 3mo. old 75% German angora/25% satin angora (approx. lineage -- didn't really care once she tucked her forehead under my chin! eeeeeeeee!). the whole story? Well, Gina (check her blog for more pics of our day) and I took a trip to Ackers Acres in New Gloucester, Maine -- home of the fabulous Bunny Blend yarn and it's lovely proprietor, Beth Ackers, and her many BEAUTIFUL bunnies. I had pretty much reserved myself to being a grown-up and just going for the fiber, info, and yarn, and waiting for the bunny until I was truly ready -- but then hubby said "why? What's the big deal?" HA! Silly man. After 12 years, doesn't he know not to give me even a smidge of a loop-hole? I mean where does he think our son gets it from???? Anyway, we walked in to see a cage full of lovely palm-sized baby bunnies (3 weeks old -- can u stand it?) And I turned to Beth and said "Where are the bunnies for sale?" It was all over. This little charmer stayed contentedly in my arms for over and hour -- I never even bothered to hold another. Guess there is something to love at first site, huh?
Now don't despair -- there certainly will be more pictures. The cats and dog are jus t going CRAZY trying to figure her out, but my camera batteries are giving me a hard time, so they may have to wait 'til tomorrow. Until then, I NEED YOU HELP! My little darlin' has NO NAME, thus we have the "NAME THAT BUNNY" contest. This is open to all bloggers and non-bloggers, but you have to hurry and get me you submission! I will be going away on Friday and would like to have the results in before I go, so you need to LEAVE A COMMENT WITH YOUR NAME CHOICE BY WEDNESDAY, NOV. 1ST. The top three winners will be announced on Gina's next podcast, as well as by e-mail so be sure you leave one for me. Oh, and let's try to stay away from the "Fluffy"'s and "Flopsy"'s, hm? 3 prizes will be awarded for the top three names as voted on by myself, my children, and hubby. (I won't guarantee that the top name will be used as we may come up w/something on our own, but for now, your guess is as good as mine! HELP!) More bunny pics and fiber news later. Let's get those names rollin'!
