Hippity Hoppity!

You KNOW you guys are my favorites, right? So just for you, I went back to the quilt shop, Bear Paws and Hollyhocks, after work today to take photos of the cool/creepy rabbits I've mentioned. Here's the pair:


Lindy (the owner) had them sitting on a bench in the window, but she brought them in so I could get a closer look (and feel!) and a better photo--the sun was glaring on the glass window and I'm not sure the photos would have turned out very well otherwise. The gals from the Department of Justice were meeting in the classroom, so we brought the rabbits in there so we could all get a good look at them. And here's a closer shot of the girl rabbit:


They are obviously NOT your typical cuddly, plush bunnies, are they? And yes, they are made with real fur and suede/leather/skin. If I had some spare money sitting around, I'd sure be tempted to buy one or both of these--they're sooooooo unique! (And yes, as a matter of fact, I DO like weird stuff!) But you know--any spare money I had sitting around was taken by my burglars last week, so I'll just have to enjoy the photos.

So what do you think? Cool or creepy?

Cowguy said...

Their faces look a little like they're crossed up with an armadillo but with fur... mostly ate away by the mange and for some reason, and probably the coolest feature, they've got monkey hands.

Wow. That's a tough one. They're so creepy that they're cool. No. No, wait. They're so creepy that I can't stop staring at them, but I don't know if that's cool or not...

I like them, but I like unusual.

Patti said...

I'm with you - very cool! And somewhat creepy. Definitely individual works of art (?) by an obviously talented doll maker. I'm very curious as to the price . . . high, I'm sure.

Cool! But the hands remind me of the flying monkey hands! That's a little creepy.

Both creepy and SAD. I hope they didn't kill actual bunnies for the fur and skin. Definitely DON'T buy and support this kind of stuff, Kim!

Nan said...

SC Sally said...

Ever see the movie "Hope Floats"? The main characters Mom made stuffed cats she called "scaredy cats" and those rabbits look like something she would have put together if she gave buns a try. Yikes.........
