Save 15% at Cottontails until Friday

I'm rather chuffed with my latest offer - a little discount code based around Wimbledon fortnight. Think tennis, strawberries and cream and 15% off!

Yes, enter the discount code love15 (I was delighted with that!) between now and midnight Friday 28th and you can save 15% off absolutely all products - even the things already in the sale.

Here are the other little images I created for the email newsletter which I have just started sending - if you are on my database you should receive your email in the next few hours, it takes a while to send them all (and if you are not currently on the mailing list but would like to be, you can sign up here)

And happy shopping!

Yesterday and Today

 Molly enjoying the warm evening (and evidence of my digging in the background)

What a beautiful day it was yesterday - and what a contrast today. I am on my own all day today and was hoping to snaffle a couple of hours on the deck chair this afternoon - heck, maybe even crack open the new bikini at long last? - but no the weather has other ideas, so it's another day in the office.

Had a nice evening in the garden last night though - with a it of help from Eric bunny who is tending his own carrot patch...

Eric manfully handles a wheelbarrow bigger than himself

And finally here he is firing up the bbq for tea...

Ah well, there's certainly plenty to be getting on with in the office today (parcels, new Maileg delivery, illustrations for new website, marketing & PR) so perhaps it's as well the sun isn't shining...

Cottontails Carrot Festival - and Two Day Flash Sale!

17th June update - sale extended by one day.  Hooray! So today is now the last day...


-->Now, have you ever heard of a Carrot Festival? It’s a traditional rabbit thing that takes place every year during the middle of June, where rabbits young and old, fabric and real, all get together to leap and skip and feast on carrots. It’s chaos here at Cottontails, let me tell you, with 100s rabbits full of the festival spirit…

Anyway, to join in with the festivities I have decided to run our first ever ‘flash sale’, and for this weekend only I am reducing lots and lots of lovely toys and gifts. 

Plenty of Moulin Roty, Maileg and Trousselier toys are reduced – and some by up to 50%! But most items will be back to full price on Monday morning, so be quick like a bunny to grab a bargain.

And finally here are a few favourite Cottontails bunny & carrot photos from the past couple of years...

A little holiday....

I am taking a little break - have had a lot of stuff going on in my life the past few weeks and need to have a bit of time away to clear my head.

I've had a word with the boss and he has kindly agreed to a bit of time off. In fact he has decided to have a holiday himself, so we are going to close Cottontails for a couple of weeks.

 The boss, suitcase packed.

We will both be back on Monday 17th June.
