The Bunnies of Biltmore

After a tour of Biltmore House, we (naturally) hit the gift shops. After some food. And ice cream. But before the wine tastings. Yes, that was shopS, plural; there are about a half dozen different themes (located in the "stables") and you could find bunny somethings in most of them. (P.S. If you take the house tour, spend the extra $s on the recorded tour narrative - totally worth it to better understand what you are viewing.)

Okay, loose bunny connection but spotted in the eatery.
"Silly Rabbit, Trix are for..."

Bunny version of Hear no evil, See no evil, Say no evil.

Tiny little bunny figures

This little bunny figurine opened up
(like a Limoges box).

Thought this big bun hugging
small bun was really cute.

Bunny staycation

We tried to get away for the weekend, which meant the bunnies went to Chez HRS, where they are well-cared for royalty (as are all the bunnies they rescue or board). Of course, the buns hate the necessary-evil car rides.

A texted shot we received while away:
Happy to see that Ethel looks like she recovered
from the trauma of the car ride to HRS.
Lucy in her typical paranoid state of mind.
And Bunya, posing for the camera and waiting for treats.

Apparently, they were happy to be home, too.
After a little of this Bunya loving, Ethel moved
to love on and then lean against Lucy's head.

Bunnies of New Morning Gallery

New Morning Gallery is one of our regular "must see" stops whenever we are in Asheville, NC. It turned out to have been an incredibly bunny-rich environment. A special thanks to them for letting RR take bunny pictures. Pictures are in the order of our stroll through the gallery (i.e., random). Of course, they have much more than just bunny art, but hey, this is a bunny blog.
(A couple of the pictures have artist data, but the helpful folks there can identify the artist of any piece you may wish to pursue.)

Coming soon: The Bunnies of Biltmore

The snack bowl is attached to this cute bun.
Maybe you could use it to eat your morning bowl of Cocoa Puffs
(bunny people will get that for sure).

We actually have one of these.
It holds tooth picks or matches,
but ours is just for the bunny decoration.

These are cards to write notes.
Or I would just frame it.

Really large totes. Uh... we now own the one on the left.
It reminded us of a younger Bunya.

Artist data on the tote.

A new take on the Tortoise and the Hare

Love the tushy jumping in ("bottom" right).
