and your attitude when you have everything.

 And I do too!


  1. Morninng Marie from a rather misty greay morning, not sure we will see much of teh eclipse but no doubt it will go very dark around 9.30. Like the idea of the carmalized onions,,,will check that one out, thanks as always for searching out all these wonderful ideas for us..
    much love to you Todd and Mitzie xxx

  2. I too have made that cute bunny cake. Coconut was not a favorite when my children were small, so I would just frost and decorate with jelly beans. That chicken sounds very yummy with the pineapple salsa. I'll need to check out your recipe. Happy first day of Spring !

  3. Hi, Marie--happy Friday! Is it Friday already??!! Oh, but that bunny cake reminds me of one my Mom made when my sister & I were little... memories!! She probably used that very same recipe idea! Good home ideas this week--thank you! Wishing you all there a HAPPY weekend :o) ((LOVE & BIG HUGS))

  4. I love your Friday Finds..It has brought me some very god ideas!
    Marie..I made that bunny cake too when my girls were little..I had a book that showed you angel etc..I lent it to a client and never got it back:(
    However cakes have changed a lot and I think I have a few pages photocopied..I did these in the 70's:)

  5. Thanks Sybil. I Hope you were able to view some of the eclipse! It did get very dark here! Love and hugs to you, Mary and Masy also! xoxo

    Thanks Pam! I am sure anyone who was a mom over the past thirty to forty years has made that cake! It's a really fun cake! Happy First Day of Spring to you too! xoxo

    Thanks Tracy! I bet it is the same cake too! Wishing you a very happy weekend also! xoxo

    Ahh, I know the book you are talking about Monique!! I think I had the same book. I still may. I am going to go and have a look! xoxo
