Antique stores can be a "bunny-rich" environment!

Went on a little get-away and stopped at some antique stores along the way. Never realized how many bunny things you can find there.
Thank you to the store owners who allowed me to take pictures (I try not to disturb things on the shelf or in the cabinets, so some other stuff may be in the picture). Their cards are included in case you want to go rabbit hunting in this permissible manner.


Okay, is the thing on the left is a bunny?
Having the eyes face front makes this a doubtful call,
but we couldn't figure out what else it was supposed to be.

I believe the holes are to hold
flower stems, but including the
ears and eyes with holes
made this just a little creepy to me.

The classic!


The bunny is "crystal clear" ...
the orange reflection is from another glass item behind it.



Loved this bunny


Didn't have time to go in but they had two big bunny statues outside.

They still love their bunny thing

This was a present for the bunnies (posted here in intact form). You can see that parts are missing as it is digested by the bunny toy demolishers. MIA includes the little tether ball that used to dangle in the opening. (It's still around, just no longer attached.)

But it still has a ways to go, so there should be weeks and weeks of chewing and hiding fun ahead.

Bunny traffic back-up

There appeared to be a traffic jam at the gate to the bunnies' pen. Actually, the gate was open, as it often is, but the bunnies were all hanging out inside their pen, as they often do.

Just a little pile o' bunnies.

Camouflage bunnies

Here's the long shot ... I know they like the bricks to keep cool but I wonder if they gravitate to the parts of the fireplace into which they might blend. Which is really hard for a Dutch like Lucy.

Here's the closer shot. Lucy's against the black fireplace doors but still stands out.

Bunya's hard to see even close up.

Bunny on the moon

Where are Mulder & Scully when you need them!?
The truth is out there!

Looks like it could be Ethel.
An Astro-bun.
(Tip o' the hat to those with mad Photoshop skills ... not me.)

Everybunny is a critic

We lost the carpet in most of the basement due to a flood. The bunnies seem to take an interest in the replacements under consideration ... perhaps as to taste and chew-ability.

But it is perplexing. What characteristics should bunny flooring have?
It absolutely needs to provide traction for the bunnies. Carpet is good for that.
It should be as unchewable as possible, like no loops to snag with tiny teeth (or nails). Bunnies can chew most anything.
What about carpet tiles? ... Figuring one of them will find a way to chew something; stock up some extras and maybe you can just replace the damaged one. Or do tiles provide too many potentially dig-able, chew-able edges?
Commercial carpet might work because it has a low pile.

An ongoing debate.
So, do bunny owners pick floor covering because it will look great?
Are you kidding? Bunnies rule our lives.
One of these days, you will see the decision in future pictures.

One day in the bunny castle

Turned around and Ethel and Bunya had settled down into opposite towers of their castle.

Ethel stayed snuggled down while her picture was taken.

Bunya perked up.
Like maybe he thought
there was a treat on the way.

The bunnies' castle towers, bridge and ramp are component parts sold by The Blissful Bunny on Etsy. You can assemble many different configurations. Their Facebook page is here. This is also where we got the bunnies' Einstein toy.
