Vintage Folk Art

I spotted this adorable piece of vintage folk art on Ebay a while back. I just had to have him. I love collecting unique pieces of bunny art.

Isn't he adorable? His wheels move and everything!


When I took him out of the box, I set him on the table for a second while I disposed of the box and wrappings. When I came back and looked at him, I couldn't help but think he was talking to my other bunny.

"So...do you come here often? How would you like to go for a ride? I've got my own wheels."

I know. I know. I'm a total dorkwad. I can't help it. David say's I need medication. hee,hee,hee.


Here's where he ended up. He's in the foyer, but he can still keep an eye on his lady friend in the living room. Who knows. Maybe they go for late night drives around the house when all is quiet. ;)

Have a happy and fun day. Spread some smiles, especially to our veterans. We thank you.

xx, Michelle and the Bunnies

That bunny is just too awesome for words--and if you're a dorkwad, so am I because I can totally see that!

Christina said...

Definition from the Urban dictionary - Someone who has odd interests, and is often silly at times. A dork is also someone who can be themselves and not care what anyone thinks.

In other wods a perfectly normal, lovely peep!

(I love Mr Bunnymobile btw).xxx

Love your newest bunny!

Jillayne said...

He's perfect Shell, just perfect. I love how he looks there in your entryway, and probably wise to separate those two now while you have the chance!
I'm up to ears in making mice and I've been talking to them the whole time; I must say, they did listen better after I sewed their ears on!

Bunnies Bunnies everywhere!:)

I love it! Brown bunnies are my favorite!! I saw a very similar carousel bunny in NC at an antique store. I will never forget how beautiful it was....but the price was too high. This bunny looks so similar, only much smaller, and most likely, affordable! Very cute!

The human said...

love you Shell! that sounds perfectly normal to me... though funnily enough my lovely husband says I need medication too... can't think why! :()

Chris said...

He is fabulous! He just made himself right at home.
I think we are all a little dorky.

Dorkwad - no known cure. Sometimes it gets worse, sometimes better. Most "sufferers" ignore it, others make big bucks out of it by being on reality shows. Interestingly, it often manifests itself by collecting rabbit items.

I personally self medicate with Snickers and hope for the best.

quilterfaye said...

Good thing you saw him first, I know a perfect place for him in a Nova Scotia home.lol
Hugs,Faye
Ps Have to admit he looks very happy there.

bunnits said...

What an adorable bunny!

Dorkwad--a normal condition for me. I love knowing I do not suffer from it alone.

QUILTING IS BLISSFUL, DI said...

Hugs, Di and miss gracie

Karen said...

Glad he can still see her from afar, as they made a handsome couple. And if your a dorkwad then so are most of us.

Erica - Peppa Jo Patterns said...
