Can you tell?
No, I didn't make these darling little things. They came from Pier1. Aren't they adorable?
I love them so much I went back to the store this morning and bought the 4 that were still in stock, only this time they were half off. Sweet.
Now I have a whole "litter" of them. What's the term for a bunny family, anyway? It's not a pack, herd, gaggle, or swarm, and I don't think it's a litter either. Or is it? Anybody know the answer to that burning question?
I love an excuse to set the table all pretty.
The other patterned dishware at the table (with the exception of my Japanese sheep plates - also snagged at a thrift store, but in Japan) is Villeroy & Bosch. It's my wedding china, and I love it but don't use it enough because of the no dishwasher restrictions. Time to start changing that, I think. The using part, not the dishwasher part.
You'll recognize my blue eggs, of course. I had to use my elevated cake plate for my carrot cake (shocking, isn't it, that I use a piece of dishware for its original intent?) so I changed the centerpiece around a bit.
It's adapted from a recipe my mother-in-law gave me a long time ago, and it is the most moist, tender, yummy carrot cake I have come across. Probably because of the crushed pineapple, coconut, and buttermilk in the recipe in addition to the carrots. Let me know if you'd like the recipe and I can post it for you.
Here are my little munchkins, all dressed up. Yes, you've seen those dresses before - Mommy didn't have a chance to make new Easter clothes this year. I had been stalling, hoping my fabric would come in time to make their dresses from my fabric, but by the time I knew it wasn't coming for awhile, it was too late with all our other activities this past week. It's okay - I love the dresses they have on. And my little boy is all dressed up in a blazer! Awww....that really tugs at my heartstrings. Yes, Hazel's lips, teeth, and tongue are blue, compliments of the blue sucker she had in her mouth 2 seconds before this was taken.
I love this shot -my friend's boy was so excited about his eggs!
I hope you all had a wonderful Easter weekend!
