Two Scoops Vanilla with Mint Birdie on Top

This was suppose to be about the "ice cream"...ummm, SOMEBODY thought they should get in the picture!!
I'm also adding this little cupcake charm to the listing. I'll be putting this on ebay later...I have to wait until my sweet kitty is finished with her nap!!
I doubled up the mound of lace to have the look of 2 scoops. I dyed the pink wool felt, cut out the circles, cut out those little knicks, then used floss to pull in for the petals, added a yellow french knot in the centers.
Vintage chunky pink glitter on the ends of the pins, my friend Grace sent the glitter to me, it is so beautiful.

So cute! And I like the 'Somebody' who sneaked into the picture. You couldn't have posed it that way. ~Adrienne~

Hola Laurie- I went to some shop in Washington years ago- A BBB shop with the mom of a friend of mine..."Mom" used to be a Bunny clothing designer for BBB! She made me my own tree topper angel from a BBB form- which is carefully tucked away in the holiday decor. I keep my other bunnies in my bedroom (Here's the address to my Show and Share blog that featured them: http://kidney-garden.blogspot.com/2008/02/show-and-share-thursday-bunny-love.html) where they brighten my mood. "Mom" was laid off when BBB was purchased by Hallmark.

Love the Header today! Your kitty is adorable as is everything you have! Now the minty green isn't a color I would have thought I liked, but it's gorgeous! Love the little felt flowers too. Such talent.
Hugs,

I love seeing other people who let their fur babies take over the house. It let's me know I'm not the only one :-)

Once again, beautiful work. Love the little charm.
