Art Imitates Life - Happy Friday!

You've heard that saying before, "art imitates life." Well the other day that saying rang true in Bunnyville.

I was folding up some fabrics to put back in the cupboard when Harrington, (aka Mr. Mischief) came hopping over to investigate.

"Hi mama! I'm cute!"

"Yes Harrington, you are very cute indeed. Now get out of the cupboard so I can put this fabric away."

"But I don't want to get out of the cupboard. How about you hurry up and put those fabrics in here, like now, so I can dig at them and fling them all over the place?"

"On second thought, now I can see up here!"
"Harrington, would you please get down from there!" Children...

What happened next made me laugh so hard as images hopped into my head. You see, I'm a Huge fan of artist, Susan Pilotto of Crowsnest Pass Primitive Folk Art and her blog, Mouse Droppings. Susan creates the most adorable, whimsical and down right charming creatures from wool. I love her bunny pinkeeps and one day I will have one!

So when Harrington did this...

These images from Susan's blog hopped into my head!




So it really is true that "art imitates life."

"That's all fine and dandy Mama, but don't even think about putting pins in my butt! Crazy bunny lady"

Shell:
Leave it to your imagination to put those two images together, but of course, you're so right. Harrington looks just like one of her sweet creations...one of which belongs to moi! (nanner, nanner) Mine is a mouse, so don't be too green. ;-) You know how much I love your bunny posts.
Hope you, Sugie and Harrington have a wonderfully restful weekend.

BTW-Your package arrived today. I LOVE my surprise!!! (I'll blog about it soon.)...and I'm going through my linen stash to see what I have that might be like your sample. I'll write soon.
Love ya!

Heehee, he looks so proud of himself for getting in that cupboard.

Harrington, I totally agree, you are way too cute to get pins stuck in your butt--but when you buns are being that naughty, don't think us bunny-mums aren't just a wee bit tempted. ;)

Thank-you sweet Shell...my thanks for such a sweet post about Harrington & my wee fuzzies...you made my day...AGAIN!!! Hugs Susan

The Fab Furs said...

Harrington helps!

Karen M said...

Seriously, how do you manage to do anything other than take pictures of Harrington all day? He's better than Cary Grant!

Lisa said...

I want one! Lol.

They're obnoxious, I know, but isn't it kind of fun to have a mischevous bun? they keep it interesting.

Maybe I'm biased because all I have to do is say, "What's that Biffy?? You want me to pick you up??" and he goes running for the hills from whatever bunstruction he's up to.

Look at Harrington's sweet face. You couldn't possibly be angry!

Hilarious Shel - again! Sir Harrington is a great source of amusement and I love the idea of him as a pin-keep!

Art does indeed imitate life! It's great that you have such a wonderful assistant (or more likely that would be supervisor??!!)
