What is a monkeybox?

When I was a little girl, we had a pet monkey named Amanda. My Dad worked in the produce business, so each night he brought home that days culls in a big box - spotty cucumbers, pithy apples, limp celery, moldy oranges and the like. We called it a monkeybox. It was really just trash, but my Mom would take each piece of fruit and trim it, pare it and cut it up to make a beautiful fruit platter for Amanda. Even though it was deemed trash by one, it still had life left in it and was good for the purpose we needed it. That's how I live my life - thrifting, yard saling, looking for another's trash to be my treasure.

The Bunny Cake

Happy Easter, Every Bunny!

 And now the moment you have been waiting for........ha ha........The Bunny Cake reveal!


I made the pink inside.  I thought it was a bad a idea after I made it.  But, the slices looked pretty  
The back end of the bunny did look a little skeery.  

I hope you all have a egg-septional Easter!  

And it's all that it's cracked up to be.  

That's all folks!
