After an early morning dash around to the shops to get the milk and paper (and a choccy bunny for a friend) I sat down with my morning ritual coffee( strong milky espresso ) and flipped through the A2 section of the Age, then got a wee surprise when this guy jumped off the page.
It was a year ago I featured Easter bunnies on Lino Forest and "whoosh" a whole year has gone past at lightning speed.
Yesterday I picked up a sweet tapestry from the oppy and gave it the chop to make this bunny brooch. It's sitting in my old Bunnykins bowl. This was my bowl as a baby so it has held much mashed pumpkin and stewed apples. Unfortunately my Mum used it to hold our pet rabbits food for a while(until Flopsy left this world) , so the colours have faded . I rescued it when my collecting sensibilities kicked in as a teenager.
I love vintage Bunnykins and have added a few more to the collection, but I haven't let them get flung off the highchair or licked by the pets. I'ts a wonder any survive.
