White Rabbit! White Rabbit! Have you heard that saying before? I never did until I was in Virginia for the show in November. A lady purchased one of my Lady Sophia Snowflake ornaments to give to her daughter in law for Christmas. She told me that they all have this crazy thing they do on the first of every month. They try to be the first one to call the other and say "White Rabbit! White Rabbit!"
Juliet Wilson sent me a lovely handmade book filled with her poems and HAIKU about rabbits. This is one of them.
First of the month-
saying "rabbit, white rabbit
white rabbit" for luck
Then another friend of mine, Melody Daly, told me this was very popular in Australia and England. Apparently people try to be the first to pinch or punch each other before mid day on the first. The other person can't pinch or punch you back if you say, "no returns, white rabbits." Melody and her husband have a competion going on to see who can win the most times. Fun!
As usual, anything dealing with rabbits always gets my attention. I thought it would be a fun way to introduce a piece of my new Rabbit Art to you each month. Each piece will be one of a kind and feature rabbits in one way or another. Some may be larger than others. I may make the design again, but it will be in a different color scheme. Maybe.. maybe not. Either way, there will only be ONE for sale and it will be a one of a kind.
A very special thank you to my friend Catherine Baynes for giving me the beautiful rabbit pin featured as my white rabbit. Hop over and visit with Catherine for her fun post on the year of the rabbit and to see her beautiful stitchery patterns. You'll love them!
Have a fun day everybun and see ya Tuesday!
