Bunny Rump

At the mini meet last week we made this cute little bunny rump sticking out of a flower pot.  I used spring colors for my flowers to resemble hyacinths.  This little guy is gracing the stoop on my brownstone.

New Bible For My House

This and the last post are from a trip to AZ...
While out west we visited the Miniature Time Machine Museum.

Such a neat place to view lots and lots of minis....

My niece bought this very nice Bible for my brownstone.  If you open it, it reads like a real bible with teeny, tiny letters. 

I didn't take a lot of pictures because my brother sent me a lot on a disk when he visited.

I will dig them out and post a few sometime.

I  love my Bible....

I bought a chicken for the chopping block!!!

Always Good To Be Home

I hadn't been out west for years to visit my family.  So I grabbed my friend Jean and off we went.  We had a lovely time.  We visited my family and rented a car and went on excursions.  Got lost a few times but that was part of the fun even though at times a bit nerve wracking visiting in a city I haven't seen for years.

See some pics of the trip

Just a few shots to get the ball rolling.

Jean should be posting some  also over at " A Romantic Country Home".

Till next time, Hugs, LJ

Killing two birds with one stone or quilt doodling

This year we are celebrating Birthsdays on Easter because we will be all together...

I made them a cake and got to practice my quilt doodling...

I got carried away with doodling because I am addicted to it, lol....

My kitchen aide mixer motor went caput so I made the frosting with my hand mixer which took forever...
I only used the mixer for frosting and bread so I don't know if I will get another one.  It would be cheaper to buy a new one rather than ship it to be fixed, I checked. Out of warrenty.  They are expensive for what I use it for so maybe I will get an inexpensive Sunbeam. Do any of you have an inexpensive mixer to recommend? 

Happiest of Easters All.

Easter Fun

This utube video is from One Very Happy Bird and it is a blast to make...

Here are my Easter versions:

I thought pinwheels would suit the guys better

I found backgrounds to print out on cardstock on the net
