Bunny on two boxes

Greetings! Christmas Bunny on a Box or Two

…Christmas Bunny?

Just a little holiday greeting!  To all my friends, I hope you have a wonderful, peaceful holiday.

I’d like to share a couple of watercolor cards I created for my Mom and Aunt Mary.  Why a bunny?  It just popped in my head…sort of the Christmas Bunny of Happiness.

Perhaps the Easter Bunny needed to evolve or try a new direction.  Do you suppose it’ll be back in time for Easter?

About the Rabbit

My model is a “netsuke” replica.  Netsuke are Japanese miniature sculptures.   They were originally designed to be used as fastener or toggle.  Apparently, some were so ornately carved that they have become works of art.


I collected this small rabbit in Berlin, GE.  My husband and I were there in the 1990’s and visited one of the museums.  Though I did pick up an art book in the gift shop, I was also taken by this small figure.  The rabBunny on two boxesbit is about an inch tall.





Oddly enough, I have been to Japan.  I went to Sendai, Japan, in 1990.  I have some souvenirs from that visit that I treasure, though none of them art “netsuke”.   I’ll save them for a later date.

Merry Christmas

May the Red Christmas Bunny of Happiness come your way.
