Happy Holidays

Hi Everyone.  It's the last post of the year, wow!
 
Thanks so very much to all who visited and supported me here on my beloved blog this past year.
Being able to share my art & some of my life in this special space is so lovely & important to me.
 
 
Now it's time for some much needed rest & rejuvenation with my honey & bunnies...
and lots of hot cocoas, roaring fires, movies, books, baths, naps, skiing, etc and of course art time.
 
I hope I'll see you here again in the New Year.
Be Well, Be Kind, Be Joyful and Be Inspired.
XXOO Mandy & The Bunnies

One Whole Year With Tee-Tee

This past week we celebrated joyously...
For it marked
1 whole year that our Honey Bee Tee-Tee has been with us.
Making our precious orange haired girl just over 2 years old.
 
One year ago on December 8th we were driving a total of 8+ hours and almost 1000kms
in a super duper nasty snowstorm to adopt our Teela from the Toronto Humane Society.
 
 
Every single time I look at her little face my heart just swells.
I just simply can not comprehend how someone can give her away to a shelter...
but in the end I am hugely glad they did because she's finally found her way home!
 
 
She called to my heart & soul as soon as I saw her little face on those adoption pages.
 
 
She was right from the start a balm to my heart
(missing our Ella Luna & during the last difficult months with Roo just 8 months after Ella passed).
She quickly became one of my brightest lights that I can't imagine life without.
 
 
Jonathan says that she & I are soul mates and I believe he is right.
 
 
She is adorably clumsy and so insanely endearing that she melts your heart.
 
 
She is so special. SO sweet, so funny & spunky.
 
 
And oh boy this little one just loves her Yuuji...
I find it sweet that they were across from each other at the shelter for a short spell.
It took awhile to bond them but now they are thick as thieves and so so precious together.
 
 
Jonathan is always saying 'How many different kinds of cute is she..." ha ha.
As naughty as she can get...she has her daddy wrapped around her little paw, ha ha ha!
 
 
and she is a huge foodie...she wants to eat everything! including walls!
The only things she's turned her nose up at so far is pickles, ha ha!
She LOVES her nightly sips of honeyed green tea with us at bedtime...
and buzzes super loud like a honey-bee...hence the nickname.
 
You know me, I could go on & on about my babies!  So I'll end here and just say...
Happy 1 year homecoming to our little Honey-Bee-Tee-Tee.
We can't imagine life without you our little sweet darling.

Jinny

Sorry to be so absent these days.  I've not been on my computer nor in my studio much lately.
For we've been stressed....Our beautiful blue-grey Jin got really sick last week.
 
 
A rushed visit to an emergency appointment with x-rays and all the stressful bits
concluded in what looks like pretty serious pneumonia.

 
So we're diligently administering broad spectrum antibiotics twice daily for at least 2 weeks.
Keeping her nice and warm with ample company.
And of course her buddy Jaks is taking pretty good care of his girlie &
as sick as she's been she's still taking care of him!


Lots of fresh Oregano is being had too because apparently it's good to help rabbits fight colds.
 

We're tentatively optimistic that she's looking better than a few days ago BUT we know she's old
& that pneumonia is quite serious in buns, let alone ones that are upwards of 10 years old.
 
SO dear blogging peeps...send us our girl Jinny some healthful wishes and good healing mojo.
