Today I am grateful for bunny love memories! Rabbits were a fun part of my boy's younger years. First there was "Rabbit" pictured above. He now lives on this twig chair I made during my "twig period". But for several years he was the well loved night-night bunny who also traveled with use everywhere. He sports a crocheted jacket and hat by me. The hat yarn was kool-aid dyed by my boy!
Then "The Mavises" were added to the herd. This trio of cottontails are named Mavis, Mavis, and Mavis. So along with Rabbit the 3 Mavises were travelling and bed companions. The car seat got pretty crowded!
When wheels became the all the rage I made this little cony on casters...during my "scroll saw period". The Runaway Bunny by Margaret Wise Brown was a big favorite. A well worn board book...and the boyo is getting ready to run now (as he should....sigh)
"If you become a little boy and run into a house," said the mother bunny, "I will become your mother and catch you in my arms and hug you."
"Shucks," said the bunny, "I might just as well stay where I am and be your bunny."
And so he did,
"Have a carrot," said the mother bunny.
Finally, there was the real rabbit phase. Meet my young son with our first Angora, Twitcher. A couple years after Twitcher the boy went on to other things. I continued an "Angora Period" for 8 years that included Twitcher, Pippin, & Merry...gone now... I still have some fiber to spin! Of course, if you follow this blog, you know my Easter critter of choice is now the Duck. But rabbits have bundles of blissful recollection for me.
