Hoppy Friday!

Hoppy Friday! I hope you had a wonderful week. This week so many things made me happy. 


First a gift from my very talented and dear friend Jules of Adventures in Thread. She made this wonderful lingerie bag for me to use when I travel. She made the rabbit stencil and painted it.


She then added these little rabbit charms on it. LOVE IT! Jules is forever spoiling me. Love you Jules!


I received two handwritten thank you notes from customers who enjoyed their purchase and play date with me. It was so nice of them to take the time to write a note of thanks. It made me smile big to know that I made them smile big! :) Thank you Dolores and Lori!


These beautiful, metal ornaments came from my adopted family, The Bloomsterbergs, in Denmark. I'm going to keep them out all year and then put them on my Christmas tree. I love them so very much and love my little Danish family too! Hugs to you Susanne, Rune, Sofie Amalie and Marie Louise.


Papa Goose is taking a nap while Terrance Turtle keeps watch. Papa is very tired. He is anxiously awaiting for Mama Goose to have the new peeps.

Spring is here and my morning walks are glorious bursts of life and color. These azaleas are stunning.


So are these. I love the green of the iris leaves next to the red of the azaleas.


The green of this magnificent tree next to the blue of our Carolina blue skies is so striking and calming at the same time.


This tiny patch of clover, growing in a crack in the sidewalk, really made me smile. See the little snail? What a magical world he must live in beneath the clover.


The spot between Hannah's ears is so incredibly soft. I love to bury my face in there, give her kisses and tell her she is the sweetest girl ever!


Harrington is the softest bunny I have ever had. Even though in the photos he looks black, he is actually dark chocolate brown with black highlights. hee,hee,hee. His fur is like silk and he has the fattest little cheeks. I could pet him for hours.


Friday night means my homemade, Mediterranean, vegetarian pizza. This is how it looks before I bake it. Lots of spinach, arugula, sun dried tomatoes, kalamata  olives, cremini mushrooms, mozzarella, goat cheese, basil pesto and a whole grain pita as the crust. It's sooooooooooo good and healthy too! Captain and I normally have these while the fellas eat regular pizza.
 

Finally this week I'm happy because even when there is something really stressful going on, if I turn on the music and dance like a crazy bunny, my worries will go away. I dance in the house, I dance in my chair, I dance in the car and I even dance in the grocery store.

So, what made you happy this week?

xx,
Michelle and the Bunnies

OH! Well, this week what really made me happy was MY BIRTHDAY, and receiving a special autographed postcard from HANNAH-BANANA and Sir Harrington, the CHOCOLATE bunny! I did NOT know he was chocolate brown! What else made me happy?The love of friends like you and seeing that you have spring in full-force! Oh Michelle, we don't have flowers yet, but the rain is here and I love it. Natasha and Boris are living in our front garden and I saw them both yesterday, sopping wet, but bouncing around. I am happy. And like you, I DANCE! I dance when I'm stressed, I dance when I'm happy..I can't dance at the moment with this imbalance I have, but soon, I will be doing the bunny dance and I will think of you.

YOU MAKE ME HAPPY!

I am so glad that you loved the gift from Denmark. Just loved the pictures of your flowers, can see that the spring in your place are a little before ours, but my azaleas are begining to burst also. Have a great weekend. Love Susanne

Thanks for the photos of the late spring colors there! We have azaleas and rhododendrons here too - we are the rhododendron state in Washington - but not this early yet.

Great pix of the bunn bunns too - blue eyes there!

And the dancing hither and yon .. uh .. might want to tone down the grocery store part?
