Prim buny rabbits and estate sale finds

There was a local estate sale this morning.  Having yardsale withdrawl this winter, I forced myself out of bed and got there early. It wasn't what I expected, but I did come home with a few goodies.
Not too bad for an early morning pick.  I collect  old glass storage jars for one of my Christmas projects. This one has a ground lid.  I want to put a small Christmas tree on the scale.  I'm always thinking about Christmas projects! 
I finished some Easter bunnies.  They are listed in my Etsy shop. I made two of the bunny in the jellybean print dress, one has already sold.

I used patterns by Patti's Ratties, and Homespun hugs and calico kisses to make the bunnies.

What has more holes, the salt shaker or the pepper?

I want you opinion and view on this subject.   I bought a vintage S & P shaker set on eEsy.  They match my McCoy nesting bowls and canister set that I have on my kitchen counter.  One has two holes,  and one has three.  The holes are the same size. What goes in what? 
I googled the subject and  found that history and opinions vary.  I always thought it was cut and dry.  Emily Post doesn't have an answer.  I'm shocked!  Lenox says the salt goes in the one with more holes.
Give me your opinion, then I'll post what I did and why.  LOL..
I do have some dollies finished finally, I'll get them posted soon.

Hippy Hop, I finished Bunny

It's been a crazy winter here at my house. Between Blizzards, cold, and ice,  we have been remodeling  and changing out stuff.
 I sold my entire dining room set on Ebay. Then, I started a major remodel in my upstairs.  That won't be finished until this time next year.  I can only squeeze out so many "Honey do's" from my poor hubby.
 I shopped and found new very old antiques for the dining room.  I still need a table.
In between all of it, I've been watching the 2 little Granddaughters, and keeping the two home businesses going.
I've continued to create. If I didn't, I would not be a happy camper. I thrive on creating my dolls and prims.
This is my latest finished item.  I have him listed in my Etsy Shop.

I'll post dining room pictures as soon as it's finished.  I found that I had an old bucket bench just sitting in my basement.  It was here 26 years ago when we moved in! Can you believe it?  I never knew that it was anything but a crude shelf until recently. LOL.... It's going in the dining room as soon as the poor ole hubby can tune it up.
Have a wonderful week, and Happy Valentines day All!

Free Tax prep. and some finished items.

The tax prep. is free, but I bet you won't get a refund! They're still in training.
Ava and Grace working in Opas' office.

Some Rabbit tucks and a set of large quilt eggs I just finished up.  I'm listing them on eBay tonight.
