Happy Friday!

"Whoa!!! Check out all those pressies Mama got for her birthday!"

"From Auntie Jade and Cousin Mickey came this necklace designed by Donna Swan of Lavender Rabbit Studio. Mama sat down on the floor and cried when she opened this and saw charms of all her bunnies and cousin Mickey."

"There is even a bracelet! Auntie Jade commissioned Donna to create these especially for Mama. She loves them! Such a wonderful keepsake of all us bunnies."

"Grammy Sylvia (no blog) sent these Arthur Court pieces. Mama has started collecting Arthur Court bunny stuff. She likes the fact that a portion of sales from products funds wildlife preservation and protection as well as environmental research and eduction. Cool huh?"

"From Auntie Shawn (no blog) who is also our bunny sitter came this cute boy. The only plant Mama can grow is ivy. She's had an ivy plant on the back porch for two years and she's so proud of herself for not killing it! Papa get's all the credit for our yard looking so pretty."

"From Auntie Lydia came this platter from Williams-Sonoma. Auntie Lydia is also made the cheesecake (that is all gone) and a CD of fun dance music. Mama likes to drive with happy, fun music playing in the bunnymobile. She does a lot of 'car dancing.' Dorkwad! She and Mama spent all day Wednesday in Wilmington, NC having lots of fun!"

"From the book/dinner club girls came this platter from Pottery Barn. I think it's time for a party so we can use those platters! I see them loaded with veggies! Woo hoo!"

 "From our friend, Susanne in Denmark, (no blog) came all these wonderful things! Susanne and her family came to meet us last Summer. Mama wishes they lived closer. We would have lots of fun plus her girls just loved us!"

"From our good friend, Christine of MacDonalds Patch in Australia. She said every time she see's something with a bunny she thinks of Mama. We love that we have so many friends all over the world!"

"Captain sent Mama a box of goodies too, but she won't let Mama open it until this Wednesday. Captain is coming home for a visit. Mama can't hardly wait to see her! Next March Captain will retire from the Navy and be home for good. Mama said that will be the bestest pressie ever!"

"Boy oh boy, somebunny sure was SPOILED! In case you're wondering, Papa got Mama a bunch of Summer clothes that she needed and a new Starbucks cup for her collection."

"Mama sends her sincere and heartfelt thanks to all of you that took the time to leave a birthday comment. Friends make life so fun! She loves you to the moon and back!"

"Now I think she needs to get back to work on her book and new designs. She's been such a party animal this week!"

Happy Friday!
xx, Harrington

Beautiful gifts Shell! You certainly got some wonderful treasures - I especially love the plate from pottery Barn.
