Peter Rabbit and his Family

Peter Rabbit and his mother as she was returning from the market, and his sisters, Flopsy, Mopsy and Cottontail. They got to have blackberries for supper.

Peter Rabbit was given to me by my father sometime in the ’60s, the first of the collection.

 

On the Hunt for Joy Challenge: Week 10 – Put Your Collections on Display

Cee’s Photography Blog provides good information on the many and varied photo challenges that are out there in the blogging world. Cee inspires many with her beautiful photographs.  You might have read one of Cee’s encouraging comments and she always manages to click the like button. too.  She is one of the most prolific bloggers I follow.

Yes, I know I missed the first nine weeks of the Hunt for Joy Challenge but week ten collections jumped out at me.

I am all for hunting for joy, too.

Not a Beatrix Potter rabbit but she’s knitting!

Here are some of my rabbits and also some Beatrix Potter Figurines.  They’ve been with me for decades.  I don’t add to the collection.  They sit on a shelf of the lawyer’s bookcase with the glass front down but to take a quick photo of them tonight I lifted the glass.  Dusting them might have been a good idea.

Have a collection you want to display? Email me a photo and I will add it to the post.

I love to hear how your collection got started. How you curate it. Do friends add to your collections?

 

 

 

Peter, his mother and his sisters

Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cottontail. The ones who did what they were supposed to do.  Mother Rabbit returning from market. And Peter. Looking enormous compared to the rest of his family.

No one I know, actively collects ceramic figurines these days.

Or wants to dust them.

But they look dear to me. I took them out from behind the glass to photograph them. Peter certainly is larger than his mom.

I know, two cute rabbit posts in a week.
