|Look who has arrived! |
(The big guy, not the little one.)
This time of year my soul begins to wander towards the woods and all the wild things. Hares are always top of my list and I am very lucky to live near some woods where they frolic. I see them often. But not often like this!

Abigail Ahearn has been big news for a long while and yet she still surprises me with her creations. I LOVE her interiors which are really me, dark and yet with a sense of humour. I think it is very difficult to do a gothic look seriously (unless you live in a grand house or castle) and it often comes off better if you add a touch of relief. Her look suits both townhouses and country cottages. As proven by her own London Victorian which she trimmed in black.
|His handsome head and ears!|
I've long admired her animal lamps but each time I saved up the money to buy one and finally decided which, I found it had already sold. And it was so hard to chose from this selection!
So I was extremely excited when she did a collection for Debenham's and I saw that she had done one of a major obsession of mine - a Hare! And even more remarkable I managed to obtain one. Hooray!
|His huge paws!|
He arrived this week. He is divine! Photographs do not do him justice. He is perfectly flocked a light grey with enormous feet and ears. He wears a small bright pink shade perched over his head like the Mad Hatter's very best top hat. He has an air of 'Alice' about him. All who have seen him agree how very handsome that he is. We LOVE him and felt he deserved a name and decided to call him Harvey.
|James Stewart and his big friend Harvey|
It isn't all that original considering, but my Grandfather's name was Harvey and I have always adored the film with James Stewart and his giant Púca animal spirit in the shape of a Rabbit. Okay, so this is a hare ... but we think he is Harvey like.

You can read more about Abigail, and this collection (but a lot of it has sold out so you may not be able to buy it) on her own website blog. The Link follows these images.
Her photographs of 'Harvey' are a lot better than I can achieve with my happy snappy camera.
|A splendid Penguin. Love the black candlesticks!|
|Nice idea to have a lamp by the fireplace.|
