Bunnies by the Bay

In the past two weeks I have had many opportunities for meeting fellow bloggers.
I was so excited to meet Krys at Bunnies by the Bay.
Victoria Magazine in the early 1990's wrote a story on Bunnies by the Bay
and I had dreamt of meeting the creative force behind this fun business for a long time.
10 years ago I visited Anacortes, Washington and stopped by the Bunnies by the Bay shop, but didn't meet the owners.  Then several months ago I came across Krys's blog and was thrilled to see what she was working on.  Last week I was again in Anacortes and Krys invited us to stop by her studio.
I had no idea what I was in for.  Krys and her sister both showed us around their warehouse studio where they develop the cutest baby books, baby clothes, baby toys, and whatever else pops into their heads.  I was blown away and oh would I have loved working in a creative environment such as this.
There were props for inspiration, soft lovable toys, the cutest characters any child (me included) would love, and that pink coat, oh my but any baby would love to be wrapped in that softness and cuddled.
If you haven't heard of Bunnies by the Bay definitely take a peek at their website and you will be enchanted.
And yes~they work right next to a beautiful bay, just gorgeous!

I don't remember this story so I will have to look for it when I'm going through my Victorias. Looks like a fun place with beautiful things!

That looks like a great place to visit and thanks for the link. I would love to have that little pink jacket for my granddaughter.

What a neat visit, especially as you were able to peak into their creative workshop. If we had wee ones, I would be ordering some of those adorable baby items tonight.

This looks like an enjoyable fun place. Seems I remember reading about them in the magazine.

I hope you find your Victoria magazine soon! Let me know what you think about it. I think I found mine at a grocery store.

When I saw your post title, I immediately remembered the Victoria article. How cool is that? I am so excited for you to get to meet all your wonderful blog friends. Next year, count me in.

I visited Bunnies years ago and was enchanted by it. I still remember the windchimes along the fenceline made of teacups and saucers. I bought a bottle of oil named June Bug and always wished I'd bought more. It was heavenly. Maybe next time I'm up visiting Mom, we'll try and go over there again.
