Sir Walter Harrington - A work of Art from Jules

Helloooooooo and Happy Friday everybun! Did you have a good week? I've been sooooooo busy with work that the week just got away from me. I have missed visiting with everyone, so I promise to hop around and catch up with all of you this weekend. :)

Ya'll know I've been talking alot about handmade things, original art and getting things from artists this year. Well, I want to share this incredible gift I received from my dear friend Jules of Adventures in Thread. Jules is not only an incredible doll artist, but she is also a gifted painter! She told me she had an image of Harrington hop in her head when I introduced him to ya'll as "Sir Walter Harrington."

This is the image she painted! Can we say HAPPY BUNNY DANCE!! :) :) :) She even wrote a wonderful little story to go with it! I loooooooooooooooove it!!!! 

"I do look quite handsome don't I mama?"
Indeed you do Harrington!

Thank you sooooooooo very much Jules! I have purchased a beautiful frame for it and it will be displayed proudly in Bunnyville along with the beautiful Rabbit Herder doll she made me. Treasures forever!

Have a wonderful weekend everybun! My quilt is back from the quilter so join us Monday for the debut of my new pattern called, Noelle's Bunnies. Fun! Fun! Fun! And thank all of you so very much for your purchases of my new floss collection and new stitching design! Your business and support are so very much appreciated!

Sir Harrington is such a fine looking bunny, Harrington himself must be very proud

Sir Harrington looks properly regal in that picture. Just remember, Harrington--real regal bunnies do not party in the poo-poo bucket. ;)
