Rag Dolls (part 2)

My quest for the perfect rag doll still continues and little sketches and scribbles are filling my moleskin quickly.
My most recent favourite find is this gorgeous army of bunnies aptly named “Confiture de Paillettes”. These sleeping rabbits are hand made by Maiwenn Philouze – aren’t they just so sweet?

Apparently Confiture de Paillettes means glitter jam, which would explain the adorable little packet of glitter which comes with each handmade lovely (…seriously… be still my beating heart!)

bunny love

Lately I seem to have developed a soft spot for rabbits. Secretly I would love to have a fluffy bunny hopping about my house, but I fear my beloved Stripey Cat may enjoy making a snack out of him, so instead I have resorted to collecting (less tasty) ceramic versions. This gentle wabbit was sculpted by Janine De Waal, an architect from Cape Town (my home town). I have a very similar bunny sitting on my chest of drawers in my room.
