Bunnies! and a cake

A tour of the bunnies living in and around my place.

On the hall table under the carrot tree.  I made these bunnies years ago.

 Here is a close up -

The Living Room mantel.  A little more is more theory going on

A few of  my vintage and antique post cards

Hooray!  I won these oil lamps at the recent retreat in the white elephant.  The best part?  They were my friend, Margaret's.  Love them!
Bunnies under glasss-

The family room mantel including 3 old beenie bunnies-

Bunnies in the front step patch.

Funny folk art bunny and wagon that I picked up at a garage sale last year with one of the several pots of pansies around here - love those sweet pansies!

Best Cake - It is the Orange Crunch Cake from the Bubble Room in Captiva Florida. I made it for Andrew's birthday recently.   Click here for the recipe.  The only thing I changed was that I made home made butter cream frosting instead of the chemical loaded tub of flavored lard (not a fan).

I'm working on a secret quilt project for the Miami of Ohio bound college girl.  Next post I'll share the 2 most recent quilts I made for Andrew.  I think you may be surprised.
