Thought I'd share these blackened beeswax bunnies I'll be listing in my etsy shop when the Old Farmhouse Gathering begins its Spring Celebration in a few days :) I can see I'll definitely need to take better pictures of the pair..these just don't do them justice. Their sister, a chubby gal bunny has already been listed there...although she doesn't like to be reminded she's chubby!
I love to work with beeswax..it's natural fragrance is just so nice I'm constantly smelling everything I'm working on! My husband thinks I'm nuts. That's why I don't like to add fragrance oil to it..it smells just like honey if you use fresh beeswax.. The amazing thing about beeswax is that it takes seven pounds of honey consumed by a bee to make one pound of beeswax. Those little buggers must eat like crazy!
And bunnies are about my favorite animal of all..we just lost "Mr. Bob", a French lop-eared bunny who lived to the ripe old age of 13. He just got worn out, I think..our vet said she'd never had a rabbit live that long in her practice. He was a tad spoiled, I suppose :) He was named by my grandson Brendan when he was just a little guy. Even our big dogs were good with Mr. Bob..the male, Clouseau, would sit and clean his ears whenever he had the chance. Just goes to show you if given the opportunity, adversarial animals can get along... as long as Mom is watching, anyway!
My giveaway for Wendy is on its way to her..and I'll soon be doing another. It was fun! Hope to have many of you sign up for my next one also.
