I've finished the second of my bunnies and at this point there are only three more to go. I'm trying to keep them from looking like anything that you've ever seen before. I'll leave the vintage style Easter rabbits to those who are good at it and concentrate on showing you what sort of rabbit I see when I think Easter Bunny.

All of the work of dying eggs and making up the baskets is done in a factory now adays you know. Sure, it's still being done by bunnies but now they have a union and have a  great benefits package.  The medical alone ... well you can imagine what that can mean with the size of rabbit families.

The head bunny at the North Pole Easter Egg Factory or the NPEEF as we like to call it, is Pugsley who you've already met.  I've heard he can be a real task master but that is just what I've heard. The bunny you're meeting today is one of the master colorists and has been working at the factory for all of his adult life. His name is Beauboo Bunny and he's shy and somewhat timid and doesn't have much to say but I'm told he's an excellent worker.

After coloring his eggs Beauboo must take them to be inspected. Quality Assurance or QA has become a big deal in the Easter Egg industry.


Is anybody here?


Where is everybody?


Has everybody left for the day?

There you are Beauboo, getting in a little overtime are you?  I don't suppose you feel like going for a nice cold carrot juice after work now do ya'?

Uh...sure boss.

I was told Pugsley looks somewhat like one of my Santa figures. It might be the white fur on his face and chest does make him look a wee bit like Santa. I doubt anyone will mistake Beauboo here as being a Santa impersonator.

I've painted him a soft pale gray with darker under tones and have given him a white face and cotton tail. Beauboo is sculpted from paper mache clay and the eggs in his basket are made with cold porcelaine clay.

I'll be painting or sewing for the next few days while I wait for paper mache to dry. What are you working on?

As always, thanks for stopping by.

Wow, I had no idea that there was a bunny lead operation at the north pole? See, ya learn something new everyday. This guy looks to be filled with character and a lot of carrot pudding from the look of it. He's precious.
Please tell Bellamine and the other bears that I am sorry that I had to cut my comments short yesterday we had a bit of a dash and run issue. Oma Linda

Cute bunnies. Yeah, didn't know about the bunny factory at the North Pole!!! lol

Katy Cameron said...

Well your bunnies do have an air about them like your santas, but I can't quite put my finger on it, probably more the style than that any of the bunnies actually looks like santa. Love Beauboo, a very shy and retiring wee guy methinks...

Benefits? The bunnies get benefits? They have a Union? What's next?

Maybe somebeary is going to tell me that babies aren't "borned" in the cabbage patch. I DON'T WANT TO HEAR IT!!!!

I do like your new bunnies, Miss Maddyrose.

Beauboo is adorable. Yes, he looks a little timid but very sweet.

Poor bunnies having to have a medical. I hope they are not put off work when they are pregnant. Your new bunny looks a bit scared of going to the quality control, I do hope he praises him. I would.

I love Beauboo! He has the same befuddled look that I do most of the time - haha. Adorable! I am working on paper dolls. Don't ask me why. LOL! You've inspired me, I think I'll make a bunny. xox Pam

Beauboo is adorable! I love his face. The captions you put beneath each image matched so well, I was chuckling aloud. Too cute, Miss Maddy Rose. I do hope he and his boss, (who I cannot see the Santa resemblance anywhere), have an enjoyable cold carrot juice together. Have a lovely week, my beautiful friend.

Marijke van Ooijen said...

Maddy Rose...your work is amazing!

Love from Marijke

PEA said...

Your newest bunny is so delightful and I love it that you make them your own way and not like everyone else makes them:-) I really am in awe of your talents Miss Maddyrose!

Oh dear, don't let all our bears know that the bunnies have a union and benefits because next thing you know, they will be asking for the same thing! hehe xoxo

Astridbears said...

BeauBoo is quite the handsome hefty fellow. Glad he's got the whole health package after working there for so long. But he's not the one who delivers, have I got that right?
