The one on the left traveled with me when I moved from California. The botanical bunny on the right is new. They have become good friends.


 I Hope you had a wonderful weekend. I’ve actually been quite busy. Lots of Spring cleaning, gardening, a little painting.

Actually, I think I just might have found the perfect bike for my garden! I bequeathed my former bunnies to friends in California. What do say we hop back in time for a peek. I’m ready for some fun!

Before moving to the coast this time of year, at Marcia’s Cottage there were lots of bunnies. They were everywhere!

A perfect bunny teapot.. HoP…HoP…HoP..

Lots of chocolate eggs.

And, now it’s time for a sweet treat. Let’s hop on over to the kitchen where all my yummy recipes are kept.
