CAN YOU FIND THE BUNNY HIDDEN IN THIS POST?

Summer has finally arrived where I call home and my spirits are soaring. I love the sunshine and the balmy breezes. I love the lush summer foliage and the beautiful flowers. I love everything that is associated with summer, so why doesn't summer love me?

I suffer from allergies year round but it's much worse this time of years. It may be due to the windows being opened letting all of those pesky pollen particles in. I can't not open them as the house seems so stuffy with them closed. Guess I can endure for awhile.

I have to tell you about a dear lady that I know who has decided to honor me as the featured artist on her blog. Her name is Linda, aka Oma Linda or the Olde Bagg. She has not one but three blogs. Olde Baggs 'n Stuft Shirts, Practically Magickal and Ye Olde Crone's Gazette. It's on her Practically Magickal blog she features artists and I feel humbled by her featuring me and my blog.  If you haven't been to her blogs you're missing some good times.

Now I'm going to show you the latest member of the Santa Squad. I just finished him yesterday evening and can't wait to show him to you, so here he is.



Here he is heading out on Christmas eve to make his deliveries. He has carrots for the reindeer in his left pocket and a new scarf from Mrs. Claus in the right one. He has many scarves as Mrs. Claus loves knitting them and makes them to match the sweaters he wears under his cloak.


See the edges of his sweater sleeves peeking out of his coat sleeves?



I always love viewing Santa from the side. I believe he has a lovely profile.



There are those of you who believe this is the "money shot". Can you spot the bunny? Yep, that's him tucked in beside our little Miss Annie.



I have to include this photo as it shows Teddy from his best side. The other two occupants don't look too shabby from this angle either.



This guy and the one on my last post are both wearing red coats with black boots and gloves. If viewed side by side the reds are nothing alike. That's what's so great about the red and green combination for painting these guys. There are so many possibilities I could use just those two colors, red and green without ever duplicating them on one of my figures if I didn't want too.

Just a reminder, there is only 18 more days until the drawing for the Santa in the contest/giveaway. There's still time to enter your guess. Whether you guess correctly or not your entry is eligible to be drawn in one of two separate drawings. The prize for the second drawing is pretty nice too, so if you are interested in winning the Santa in the contest/giveaway don't forget that you can enter as often as you wish.

For clues to what Santa is holding go to my Contest/Giveaway page to see what they are and then come back here to enter your guess. There will be no more clues given so you're going to have to make do with what's there.

I hope you enjoyed seeing the new guy on the shelf and as always, thanks for stopping by.

I see the carrots, so Bunny can't be far away.

Prudence called from Camp Good Bear and wants you to know that she misses you and sends BIG HUGS.

Siento que estes padeciendo alergias, supongo que el que sea verano lo empeora pero seguro que puedes controlarlo y disfrutar del verano.
Me encanta tu nuevo Santa, su mujer ha hecho un gran trabajo con la ropa jejeje.
Te quedan tambien esos saquitos con los bebes de animalitos y la muñeca.
No se que tengo que hacer para participar en tu sorteo, me encantaria (pero el traductor no me ayuda nada jejeje)
besitos ascension

Marlene said...

He is just too cute! love the Bunny. I also have a guess, although it has been said I too think it is a gingerbread house.

Crystal Cook said...

He is darling! And you know one of my favorite parts of your posts is the stories you have to go along with each Santa. :) That sweet Mrs. Claus, knitting him all those scarves.

Erin Tame Designs said...

Once again, I'm in love with your newest! I especially love the carrots and scarf. You're a master at painting all those little details.

So, my final guess for Mystery Santa is that he's holding a plate with a gingerbread house. Although temptingly delicious, most people abstain from eating them in order to enjoy their beauty all season.

I certainly hope it is a gingerbread house, as I'd really like to see the wonderful details you add to the house. I can't wait to find out the answer!!

Have a happy day. =)

Maggie said...

What a handsome Santa! I love this guy. The bunny is cute, and fortunately it's a toy bunny, or it might steal the carrots before the reindeer can get them.

Christel Hutson said...

Dear Maddyrose, Santa is wonderful!! I love the carrots for the reindeer! Such a great thing for him to carry! The bunny is so cute too. xoxo Christel

I saw your wonderful spotlight on Linda's blog the other day and I was just thrilled to see you chosen for her July artist. Linda has such good taste in art!

This new Santa has stolen my heart with the rest and that bunny is the sweetest little darling creature. The carrots and scarves are such a cleverly added touch. You did a fabulous job, as you do on every one of these treasures, and I so enjoyed my visit. Thank you for making my day, my sweet friend. Hugs to you!

Jan said...

The bunny is so cute I want to haul him out and hug him! Another success, Maddy!

Applying the greatest web sites, you'll want to have look for features that is certain to show you how to limit your search in an effort to locations or even just specialties. Try to be capable of finding out there both scheduling details plus a food selection most typically associated with prices. This is exactly hassle-free with regard to suit your needs and your psychologist. The two of you can expect to have a very decent perception of the ability thinking that can go a long way to having mutual anticipation.The web additionally lets you comparison shop, at any time you will, involving numerous nearby providers.
