Home cooking & baking bunnies, buns & blooms

bunnies, buns & blooms

by greenrabbitdesigns


Hi everyone, I feel that I’m not here very often at the moment and after looking through my photos I realised I hadn’t shared my latest bunnies with you. If you follow me on Facebook you will have seen them there but they never made it to the blog, such is life at the moment! I actually crocheted the bunnies when I was away on holidays and just had to finish them off when I came home.

June Collage

This little one is June and with her bright colours and flowers she celebrates summer which did arrive with June but sadly seems to have escaped us again.


I’d also like you to meet Flossie Flowerpot who is a gardener at heart and loves nothing better that potting up her summer bedding plants!!

June and Flossie were both snapped up straight from Facebook and are now living with their new families.


Well as you know my daughters wedding is very close now (18 days) and there has been lots of baking this week as we have had lots of lovely people visiting and leaving presents and viewing presents and lots of tea has been consumed. The photo above is just some of the many cakes, cupcakes, pavlovas and pies that have been baked in the last few days, these cupcakes have been decorated with the lovely crystallized violets that I brought back from the south of France.





Some blooms to share with you too, my poor garden has been carrying on despite not getting much attention from me this week. Truth be told I would much rather be gardening than baking! The results last much longer too!!!

So busy times and I expect they may get busier over the next week or so!!

The sun has made an appearance here this morning again, I hope it hangs around for while.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend and thanks ever so much for dropping in and for all your lovely comments! 🙂

Ooooo, Vivienne, those cupcakes look delicious.
18 days until the big day. Is that all? That’s come round quickly. How are everyone’s nerves? Any butterflies in tummies?
June & Flossie Flowerpot are adorable, no wonder they went flying out the door, off to their new homes, just as soon as you’d listed them on FB. They’ll bring much cheer to their new owners on these grey days. We haven’t seen the sunshine in days.
Wishing you and your family a wonderful weekend.
I’m just off to the jewellery quarter in Birmingham to collect our wedding rings.

Wonderful bunnies, bakes and flowers! I am sad that the bunnies went straight away on facebook. I can no longer access facebook as they think I am an imposter and I can’t even contact them to delete my account! It is all rather frustrating. I can see that there is lots going on at the greenrabbit household and I bet a lot of excitement too! Enjoy every moment. x

Dear Vivienne,

If I had a kitchen quite like yours I too would bake a LOT of cakes, wedding or no wedding 🙂

You know how much I love your bunnies and your summer ones are no exception. Isn’t this the most glorious time of year?

Hello dear Vivienne,

These bunnies are adorable, they are so so summery in their beautiful dresses and matching cardies! And oh, you’re getting so close… busy yet fantastic days ahead!

Wishing you the loveliest days, sunshine and happiness!

Beautiful pictures Vivienne. The one of the purple coloured flowers (not sure what they are) is gorgeous. I love the little orange accents in the centre of each bloom.
Cupcakes look yummy and picture styling is great in the new kitchen.
Lovely to see new bunnies in all their summer outfits.
Both are so cute there is no way I could pick a favourite so they will both share the favourite place……….til a new bunny comes along that is!

Oh, Gosh! Only 18 days (oops – that would now be 16). I know you are as busy as can be, but it’s a happy kind of busy, isn’t it? Giving our (not-so)little ones the best send off counts for so much. Good Times. 🙂

Love Flossie with her flowerpots, too cute! And those cupcakes look amazing! Good luck with the next weeks, I know you’ll be busy! xo K

Super sweet bunnies Vivienne and such yummy looking cupcakes too. The weather seems to be deteriorating as the week progresses and hearing the predictions on the news today of 10 years of wet summers is making me feel a bit grey. Anyway, the forecasters are usually wrong so hopefully this will be.
Enjoy the run up to the wedding, I guess it’s a bit like Christmas but more manic! xx

I really love your bunnies, especially Flossie Flowerpot, she would fit in my summerhouse so perfectly!

Gorgeous bunnies as always. And those cakes look scrumptious … I love crystallized violets 🙂

It always seems like the sun is shining there from your blog posts, and there is so much beauty in this one Vivienne! Loving all the garden photos, your garden must look beautiful at the moment, so much colour.
The cupcakes look perfectly pretty with the violets, and the latest bunny girls so pretty!
Just catching up on a few missed posts here Vivienne!

I just found your lovely blog. And I adore your crocheted bunnies. Any chance of getting a pattern for your bunnies? I am going to become a follower of your blog. And I’m going to join you on Ravelry and Pinterest. Thank you!

I really like these bunnies, for some reason they make me think of country garden shows. How delicious do those cupcakes look – yum!
