Bunnies are Multiplying

I got out my bunnies this week and did a vignette on my mantle. These are two bunnies that I painted years ago. I thought the pattern was so cute and was anxious to try my hand at them.
The two big guys are from Home Goods. I loved their outfits and colors.

She all dressed up in her sweet dress holding her dolly. He's in his best suit toting his bucket of carrots and holding his Peter Rabbit book.

A few large ceramic eggs.

These are little wooden eggs I painted. They're the size of an actual egg.

One of the carved wooden bunnies on the hearth.

Spring wreath on the hearth made with flowers and eggs. I told you they were multiplying!

Recap of This Past Week

We had to head out for Atlanta on Wed. for an appt. at Emory University Hosp. Before we left I spotted this Cardinal at the fountain in the front of the house. He's just enjoying the beautiful day! Yes, he, because the males are always prettier. Only in the animal kingdom though. lol

He looked right at me in the window, as if he were posing for me.
On our way out, Hubby and I went to the subdivision across the main street from us to have a look at the damage the fire caused on Tues. What a horrible site it was. These are condos. Of course, they are connected by twos. In our sub, we are in separate homes.
The condos across the street from the fire were affected by the intense heat. (Notice their siding is buckled.)
There were two homes that were destroyed.

Many others had damage but survived. The condos behind this unit were melted on the outside, as well. Thankfully no one was injured and the Red Cross immediately stepped in to house these families and provided them with all they needed till they settle with their insurances. I pray they all had policies. Our heart broke for them and goes out to them.

Now were on to Emory. We arrived at our hotel which had gorgeous flowers everywhere. Their trees were turning green and pollen was HEAVY!

After viewing those homes, I felt almost guilty staying in this beautiful hotel.

I have to tell you though, that we always use Priceline and get 3 or 4 star hotels for unbelievable prices. I always bid my own price! If you haven't used them you should give them a try.

Their breakfast bar was incredible. Always a treat!
After the appt. at Emory we decided to head over to see Chick-fil-A headquarters. They are a fast food chain that have the most wonderful chicken sadwiches and fries. Do you have them near you?

Look at the name of the street that you turn into their headquarters. Cute huh? I thought these azaleas were unique curved into these speader bushes.

We had not made reservations and didn't get to take the tour that day because they were all booked. As we left the complex we saw this sign across the street.

Arrived back home and had company for dinner on Fri. Chicken wrapped with bacon on dried beef and covered with sour cream & cream of mushroom soup. Heavenly! Garlic potatoes to go with them.
Well, it was a busy week and another one has started already. Where does time go?

What's going on in your neck of the woods?

Breakfast for Two

There's nothing like whole milk right from the dairy farm. We buy our milk from a local farmer and everyone raves about it. It has a catchy name too. lol Hubby will drink no other milk now that he has tasted this kind. lol

Our eggs come from another local farm and what a difference in size, color, and taste than those from the grocery store. I know....we are blessed to have the choice of someone locally that distributes them. Our daughter picks up the eggs for me every other Wed. So fresh! Thanks Sarah!When the hens are laying (and sometimes they don't produce many) they are so much larger than the ones in the stores.

I haven't used my Rooster dishes in awhile, so I thought I would set a breakfast table for hubby and me.

My new Roo in the middle came from HomeGoods. Love that store! He was only $7.99.

My dishes came from there as well. I love the warm colors.

Cute little rooster plate for jam or "jelly".

Nothing like warm biscuits or bread. Can't forget that butter either. lol
