days of raspberries and rabbits.....








(new pottery with bunnies by Gary Rith----video of me making a bunny cup here)
You will recall that we picked beaucoup berries Monday night...raspberries! Fresh picked raspberries have a super short shelf life---you eat them hand over fist, but they are quickly ripening too, so you bake bake bake. yesterday I made raspberry torte, and holy cats, I bet every woman (and some men???) on earth wants to marry me now, for my torte! My raspberry torte is the tastiest gals, but I am taken.

You will also recall that last winter I invented the RATINI, the raspberry martini. Me and the wife mixed some of those last night, of course, the gestalt being: iced vodka and raspberries married together in cold wedded bliss....

Finally, yours truly is on a bunny kick these days, here are some of the latest out of the kiln, bunnies aplenty!

Your bunnies are multiplying!!! Awesome!!!

Now...don't be shocked...but I'm not really a raspberry fan.

It's the seeds.

And the taste.

But...other than that...

how did you like the play Mrs. Lincoln?

Lordy, but I sure do love raspberries, even when the seeds stick in my teeth. That's what toothpicks were made for, eh?

Sakes alive, but those bunnies sure do keep multiplying, don't they! Soooo cute!!!

looks like spike is waiting for a taste of yummy rasberry goodness.
we have blueberries here, if i had some vodka i would make a blueberry-tini.

Lori Buff said...

You need one of my berry bowls for all those berries...maybe two.

Holy Torte...that looks amazing!!!!!

Pauline said...

Yummy! Have you tried Raspberry Ice tea? Not as good as Ratini's but still refreshing!
Bunny bowls are sooo cute!

Had to stop by to see a photo of your Penny. I have snaps over at my place too.

Also, one of my good friends does triple spiral stamps on her pottery too. Cool.

Cheers - Erin
