Bunny Sunday

My love affair with bunnies began long before I ever brought Nutmeg (the original bunny) home to live with us. I always WANTED a bunny and knew it was just a matter of time and finding the right bunny (or more like the right bunny finding me).


I found this one on a walk with the dogs one day. I looked down on the trail and there it was, a perfect sitting bunny! (I love looking for odd shaped rocks and have an entire collection of heart rocks...)


This bunny was a thrift store find. I saw it in the glass case (you know, where the really good thrift store finds are) and just knew I had to have it. When the lady handed it to me I almost dropped it on the top of the glass. Turns out, this guy is made of cast iron. Even better! I had no idea what I was going to do with him, but something told me I should buy him. When I brought him home, I came in the gate to the courtyard (the gate that doesn't stay open unless you prop it open with a rock) and he found his new home. It was fate.

So now this little metal bunny has a friend. I really love this guy's big jack rabbit ears! His butt has a hinged door that opens and you can put a tea light inside. Too cute to pass up.
Inside the house, the bunny obsession continues...
This little easel (made by my dad) sits on my work table right next to my computer where I can flip to a different little work of art every day. ... These bunnies should look familiar....




And you didn't think I'd get through Bunny Sunday without posting a pic of a real live bunny, did you??? Turbo knows she is adorable... she's not worried about all of the imposters around this place!

Turbo IS adorable!! I'm drawn to all things bunny too. I think that rock find is especially significant!
