OH SO ENCHANTING....I have always loved making these ornaments. Our IMPORTANT LOOKING MR. RABBIT was taken from a 1900's vintage postcard and recreated here just for you in a Victorian bump chenille Easter ornament. He is all dressed up for the Easter parade and carries a beautiful bouquet of millinery flowers. He has real feathered angel wings because he is so angelic. His legs are real chocolate colored bump chenille which make him so lively and fun. He is sugared with German, glitter dust to make him look magical. The marabou boa makes this so soft and spring-like. He is 3 inches wide and an impressive 8 inches tall from the top of the golden display loop to the tip of his chenille paws. Final sale. Place this on your feather tree or door knob or hat rack or peg. Attach to an Easter basket or just decorate everywhere with our Victorian bump chenille ornaments. Love our rabbits in a vignette with dolls and bears and other rabbits of course. Whimsical, enchanting, and irresistible! Altered art at its BEST!! This would make the best hostess gift to give to that special someone that is having you over during the Easter holiday. Note: item must be boxed to protect art work.

I have had some requests for my jars. So today I created yet another one. I always enjoy making hand crafted candy jars like this every year with different vintage images from our antique postcard collection. This image of the handsome rabbit in a waist coat and the little girl in pink is the perfect candidate to reproduce in fabric on to this darling glass jar. The jar is 5 1/2 inches high and the ivory biscuit top is metal and is 3 1/2 inches in diameter. The image appears on the glass front, top and on a hang tag which is perfect to place a name on for gift giving. The jar says "MY JELLY BEANS". There are two gorgeous French ribbon streamers. SEW PRETTY! Everyone wants their own jelly bean jar. This makes a perfect gift to anyone who likes jelly beans. Fill it up and give it to yourself or a friend this holiday.
The jar is clear glass. It is absolutely DARLING. You can wipe off the fabric images with a damp cloth. PLEASE CONTACT ME at with your PayPal
email if you wish to purchase. Thank you.

Dear Girls,
Thank you so much for all the interest and support you give my offerings on Ebay and Etsy. I have started to present items on my selling blog IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE right here.
I have had this ornament in my minds eye for several days now. Actually could not sleep this morning at 4 AM for want of creating it.
First I took a hand blown real egg and bedazzled it with an abundant amount of real German silver fairy dust. Next I fashioned this Victorian rabbit also bedazzled with opulent German glitter. The Victorians loved to create this way. A bit of luscious marabou boa gives the rabbit ornament a whimsical flare. Note the pink millinery flowers and golden loop for display. Accomplishing this creation was no easy task...just getting the fairy dust on the egg was overwhelming...none the less it was a labor of love and I adore the results. If you like this feather tree ornament do not hesitate to buy because the next time you look it may vanish. Place this on a peg, door knob, chair, step back or Easter basket. Give to a friend and make their day. This is a final sale please. There will be more ornaments for your consideration and I have others listed on Ebay under the seller Summersdarling and Etsy under the seller name THEVELVETRABBIT. Collect them all. They look very sweet with dolls and bears and collectibles as I have shown you in the photographs.
The rabbit and egg together are an impressive 5 inches long including the golden loop for display. The rabbit sports chocolate brown bump chenille legs. You are purchasing the Victorian rabbit sitting on the egg only in this listing. The other items are not for sale at this time. Thank you for viewing. Item must be boxed to protect the art work. Please CONTACT ME AT SUMMERSDARLING@HOTMAIL.COM with your PayPal email if you wish to purchase.

This is our latest and greatest offering. It is called a SCRUB A DUB DUB. Now I know I need help cleaning and you can use this handy dandy little scrubber that fits right over your hand everywhere. I am telling you it is W O N D E R F U L. I used it on the carpeting on the stairs this morning and on the carpeting in the family room to remove unwanted spots. I used it to scrub three wooden camp chairs I am going to use in a project you will see soon. I used it on the breakfast pots and pans and I used it on the walls in the kitchen. It does not mark up anything. It also got my kitchen sink sparkling with little effort and GREAT RESULTS. I also used it to get some paint off my hands.I plan to use it to scrub out spots on clothes and to scrub my tile floor in the bathroom and entry hall. I actually plan to use it almost anywhere I clean. I LOVE IT. Also after I did all these little chores the SCRUB A DUB DUB still looks like I just purchased it. AMAZING. Try one TODAY. THE SCRUB A DUB DUB is $3.50
plus $1.00 to ship. If you want one just email me at and send me your paypal address.
I never want to be without one of these scrubbers.
