It is summer time and there are no Christmas trees to decorate, no snow to make snowmen out of, no pumpkins to make Jack-O-Lanterns out of and this situation is very boring for the three decorating mice.  So they decided the only thing to do was to decorate a bunny instead.  They found some discarded material and made a very fine shall, then they created some bunny jewelry for Betsy Bunny who was very happy with the new look and intends to wear it the next time she goes into town.

note:
Sometimes the doodles in my sketchbook come out interesting. I had started this one in my sketch book and liked it just the way it was, so I cut in out in aceo size finished it and wrote the little story above for the listing.
