A little of this, and a little of that. . .




































































Hello, dear friends! I am so glad you could come by for a visit. I am sharing a few things around Bunny Cottage that are making me smile today. Flowers from my garden: Rose of Sharon, daylilies, pinks and hydrangea. I must say you must surely love hydrangeas (and I do) to be able to grow them in this Texas heat. I water them of a morning, and they are beginning to droop by the afternoon. I have them planted in mostly shade, too. Oh well, I don't really care because I will always grow some in my garden. Daylilies are such a happy flower, love them. Inside my home, handpainted roses, china, bunnies, vintage linens, tea cups and tea pots. If you notice the sixth picture from the top, you will see a pin cushion my sweet sister Myra made for me for Mother's Day from a vintage sugar bowl. I love this, too. The rabbit in the third picture from the bottom I purchased several years ago in a small, picturesque town in Louisiana. This was the town where "Steel Magnolias" was filmed. He has sat on my mantle and kept me company for some time now. I hope and trust that you each had a lovely weekend as we celebrated Memorial Day and remembered the cost of our freedom that we enjoy so much. Have the best of weeks!! Love and blessings being sent your way!

I love your Anne Frank quote. That pin cushion is sweet! I have a Towle silver plate creamer I want to transform into a pin cushion but I am clueless! I like your pretty pinks here. The tea set is dainty and darling. Thank you for sharing. Oh, your flowers, they are gorgeous! Have a beautiful week! Anne

Oh My Goodness! My precious card arrived today! You are one incredibly cool woman! I was so thrilled because I could tell how much you love your state and how dear you are as a friend to take the time to create that priceless card! I am tickled. I want to post it but my darn camera is locking up and will not release my pictures! Drat! But I love my card and I am going to treasure it! Texas has sent me 8 cards! Woot Hoot! You can tell who loves their state! Hugs Anne

Hello sweet Vicki,
I enjoyed all of your pretty photos so much! Your home and garden are gorgeous! You have them decorated so pretty and cheerful! My hydrangeas do the same thing in the heat and humidity of Louisiana. I think our weather is very much the same! I do love to grow them and my sweet husband is keeping them watered. Like you we have them in the shade with just a little morning sun. Keep cool sweet friend! Love to you, Paula
