It is late afternoon on Good Friday here in New Zealand and I just want to wish everyone a lovely Easter.
I have pulled together a little Easter scene to celebrate entitled 'Hiding the Eggs'. Mr & Mrs Rabbit are hiding the eggs for a big Easter egg hunt while all their little bunny off-spring are having an afternoon nap. They have lots of off-spring so they need to hide lots of eggs.
In perfect conditions (weather, health, food, safety etc rabbits could have a litter of up to 10 kits every 31 days). Imagine that!
Hiding the Eggs
I had previously made many of the components and just pulled them together to make a scene using a 6" x 4" photo frame as a base. I didn't make the little mouse. That was made by a lovely lady, Heather Corrin (now deceased), that I knew when I was doing miniatures back in the 1990s . She used to do fabulous fimo work and I am lucky to have some of her creations. Little mouse has been waiting for his own little 'scene' for quite some time and is happily sheltering under a plant watching the antics of Mr & Mrs Rabbit.
Finally, I'd just like to share a vintage Easter postcard I picked up at a second hand shop. It is unused and on the back it says "Postcard. Place Stamp Here. 1 cent to United States, Canada or Mexico. 2 cent to all other Countries". At those postage prices I am guessing it is rather old.
Happy Easter Everyone
