This morning, Miss Zoe said to me: "It's a new year. Start a blog." (Above, you can see a re-enactment of the moment. In this picture, she has just finished speaking.) "It should be about art and mammals," she said. "It should especially be about rabbits," she added with a wink.
And so, on this first day of January 2009, as I sit comfortably in a warm house filled with mammals and art, sipping espresso and wearing my fleecy rabbit pants, that is my plan. To start a blog that is about just those things.
And because Miss Zoe specified rabbits as a particular area of interest to be written about, my first post will highlight one of my favoritest (the superlative needed to describe) Christmas presents ever from Christine (a.k.a. the BlissChick). These woolen bunnies:
They are tiny and cute and colorful and fun to hold and fun to kiss and, well... they are bunnies. They were made by Jennifer Hugon; you can get them at her Etsy store.
In a day or two, I will post a photo of my most recent pet portrait: a painting of (you guessed it) two beautiful rabbits named Petunia and Derby.
