Hoi! Don't eat that!

This is Mr Butterbean
all grown up.
Nearly.
Just in time for 
Easter, too.

So I shall expect 
brightly coloured eggs
Easter morning.


 I tried to sketch him.
It was remarkably unsuccessful.
Firstly,
 because he won't keep still.
And secondly,
because my sketchbook is tasty.


This bunny will keep still!
 This bunny is made by the wonderful
Cynthia Toy,
(yes, that's her real name)
who makes the loveliest
cloth fairy dolls.

I have wanted one of these bunnies
ever since I first saw one.
But there's only a few made
every Spring.

This year, I nabbed one!
Hubby bought it for me.



Here she is on 
Steampunk Rabbit's lap.

For more on Cynthia's work
see her Etsy shop,

Cynthia is on

  1. Mr Butterbean has a perfectly perfect name for a bun.

    1. He does indeed. I wish I could take credit for it! The name came from Hubby's sister-in-law. Stroke of genius, I thought.

  2. I agree with Jeri, what a great name! Can't wait to see your bun all done.

    1. Thank you. The little rabbit is so sweet, she might even get her own dolls house.

  4. Oh, so many bunnies! That one eating your sketch book is so cutely fluffy :)
    I have been following Fairies Nest blog for quite a while, and I fell in love with Cynthia's dolls. I always look forward seeing her works.
    Have a wonderful Sunday!

    1. Doesn't she make lovely dolls? The big fairies are gorgeous and the little dolls are so sweet. When I saw the bunnies she makes every Spring, I just knew I had to have one!

      And yes, Mr Butterbean is a gorgeous mix of warm gold and cream, with handsome black whiskers. If I can catch him with the camera, I'll post more pics.

    1. Can one ever have too many charming bunnies? I don't think so! Thank you! (Mr Butterbean thanks you, too)

  10. Steampunk Bunny looks like she has CT Bunny right where she wants her. Meanwhile, I like what I see of those Mr. Butterbean sketches (Mr. Butterbean is pretty good lookin', too).

    1. I'm glad you noticed Steampunk Rabbit rather looms over little bunny. It looks a little ominous. I'm sure she means well...

      Anyway, thank you for the sweet comment about my hasty (nibbled) bunny sketches! I'll have to try again, if I can find a way to bribe him to keep still. His own edible sketch book, maybe?

    1. Isn't she sweet? I think I got the prettiest of the bunch in that violet coloured dress. In fact, Violet Bunny is probably going to be her name.

      As for handsome Mr Butterbean, I chose him out of a box of bunnies because he was the friendliest and most curious. All the others ran away into the bunny house, but he came out to sniff around and was happy to be petted. The gorgeous golden fur sealed the deal!

  13. Butterbean is rabbity love for sure.I adore your collection, hubby was so kind to find you a cherished treasure. Seeing Butterbean has me realizing our Cindy Lopear the fabulous French lop that so generously shares her lovely way of being with our farm life, has not yet been in a blog post.

  14. Oh Rhissanna, your bunny is so adorable! And if that little sketch in the corner of your page was done by you, it is amazing!!! What a sweet husband you have. Warm hugs, Mina

    1. Thank you, Mina! Mr Butterbean is a star, I have to admit. And yes, that's a lightening sketch of him, before he rushed across the room to taste some more sketchbook.

      Hubby is a sweetheart, too. Maybe I should do more sketches of him as he's better at keeping still and he doesn't fancy paper as a snack!
