Happy Friday! - Art from my friend, Jules

Helloooooooooo everybun! Happy Friday to you! I'm so excited to show you what I got in the mail this week!

A while back you may remember me showing you this incredible painting of Harrington, um I mean "Sir Walter Harrington," that I received from my dear friend in England, Jules of Adventures in Thread. I simply adore this painting and when Hannah, um I mean "Lady Hannah Goldenhare," came to live with us, I commissioned Jules to paint her as well. I had no criteria or specifications, I just wanted Jules to let her artistic mojo flow.

This is Jules at a doll exhibit she recently had in England. Jules is also the artist of my Rabbit Herder Doll. She is one multi talented lady for sure!

Well take a look at what Jules created for me!!! Hello!!! Happy Bunny Dance!! Check out her dress! I love all the detail! In true Jules fashion, she sent a story along with this beautiful piece. (please pardon the glass glare from the frames)
I ran out right away and bought matching frames for them. They now hang in Bunnyville on either side of my vision board. The Rabbit Herder sits on her thrown and keeps a careful eye on these two.

Of course, all this royalty has gone to Harrington and Hannah's heads and they want me to start addressing them as "Sir and My Lady." I've also been instructed to give them each an extra banana chip at bedtime or it's off with my head! (doesn't Hannah look like she's saying that?) hee,hee,hee, cracks me up!

Thanks sooooooooooo much Jules! I truly love all your beautiful art and will treasure them always!
Happy Friday everybun! Have a magical and fun weekend!

xx,
Sir Walter Harrington, Lady Hannah Goldenhare and humble servant, Shell

What lovely portraits that accurately reflect the majesties that are Hannah and Harrington. Hannah has, in the photo, a look of satisfaction: "Yes, my status has finally been recognized and the treat level needs to increase correspondingly."

What a wonderful painting - just love the cabbage roses/carrot dress. Indeed deserving of special treats.

Fabulous art work. I suppose I can't send hugs to regal bunnies so I'll curtsey instead.

Michelle Ridgway said...

Oh they are sooo gorgeous. Jules is indeed very talented and I love how you have them displayed.
Do bunnies get 'big heads' over such things as being so beautifully portrayed?????

Ann Nichols said...

Just beautiful!! What talent!

Jade said...

Gorgeous portraits!

Tell those silly bunnehs that proper Sirs and Ladies don't have parties in the poo-poo bucket, so when they stop doing that, you'll be happy to address them by their titles. ;)

Those paintings look wonderful along side your vision board!!

Jules Woolford said...

Thank you for such a lovely post! I love how you've framed the paintings, and feel very priviledged to take up three spaces near your Bunnyville Vision board. It has been an absolute pleasure to immortalise the bunnies -and lots of fun too.xxx

DebbieM said...

That is the most gorgeous bunny painting I've seen. No wonder the Royal Bunnies want to be called Sir and My Lady!! Wonderful!! I love your wall setup too!! Looks pretty!!

What treasures! And to think they're from a friend. That makes them doubly valuable!

Garter Mademoiselle said...

What beautiful paintings!! I am a real lover of anything handmade, or hand painted, mostly because I appreciate all the talent that went behind them. What a talented artist your friend, Jules is! The real bunnies look happy and content. Mine and our guinea pigs both love banana chips, as does the hamster. Yum.
Enjoy your new paintings! ~Debby
