animal love: bunny rabbits

When I worked at the New York Public Library, one of my favorite things to do was to look for animals hidden in the carvings around the building. It was a game we used to play with the children who came to visit the library. I may not be six, but I still love a bunny rabbit. And while I’ve been in love with that White Rabbit lamp for an embarrassing number of years, I love the idea of hiding a little rabbit on a hinge or on a finial even more. — Amy Azzarito

    Ooooh this post made my day Amy! I have a bit of a rabbit obsession (I own that white bunny lamp and the same one in grey too) and I’m glad it’s slowly catching on. I agree that it’s best to keep them hidden to keep things fun though. See how many bunnies you can spot on my house tour:

    A post after my heart! I’m also a huge bunny lover, and like Caroline, I have many, many bunnies hidden around my apartment too. ;)
    Love that hinge – never would have thought of that, but I think I might need to look into it now. Can never have too many bunnies. ;)
