Please come in and see what Captain Rupert has been baking.....
Watch the wet paint...... All this stormy weather we are having has hampered it turning a smart shade of glossy blue. So sadly the front door is still showing a kind of grey colour from its first coat of undercoat. I have still posted it as I had been wanting to join in and post doors today, please find out more here
Anyway come on in, and look what Captain Rupert and I have been baking.



My grandpa was a baker by trade and we have always had these rabbit cutters in the cupboard that must of been his, I have always loved them, but that might be no surprise! My cookie cutter collection consists mainly of rabbits, and I was a little disappointed when I went to look for a heart shape before valentines day, so I will have to fix that.

It was nice to bring out all the rabbits and enjoy the spring air and sun shine.

There are small baby rabbits.

And larger rabbits.

Here they all are hoping around in some rather tasty flowers. Well that is captain Rupert's opinion as he likes to eat all the ones I plant.

Captain Rupert's cookie recipe coming soon.......

Hi Jo, I have just put a door post on my blog, thanks for reminding me, I am looking forward to seeing your door in blue, and I like your planters outside on the step. What luck you have still got your Grandpa's lovely cookie cutters, and in the shape of rabbits too! Those biscuits look so pretty, I could do with a couple of those with my cocoa at this very minute. I am really looking forward to Captain Rupert's recipe, but on this occasion did he eat the biscuits or the flowers first? x

Yum, yum - but almost too pretty to eat.
I love the look of your welcoming door and am sorry I didn't get to see it sooner.
Greetings to Captain Rupert.
I will be visiting my brother in Guildford in early April so will get a glimpse of English spring.
I have been trying to get Julia at Weirdbunny's blog but seem to be shut out.
Do you know her blog.
Any suggestions?
All best wishes for a peaceful weekend.

Hi
I don't know what I love more the fact your blog is called Higglety Pigglety or the fact you have a gorgeous bunny called Captain Rupert. I have a gorgeous guinea pig called Miss Peaches, if that's of any consequence:) Great blog
