We better stock up on some of the drawings from Capt’n Rupert’s person!!!!
This is a great site. My family love rabbits and have had them as pets for many years.
I love all things beatrix potter. Wouldn’t we all love to own one of her wonderful illustrations. Hey Hum! – I guess that is not going to happen. Not for me anyway. However for me the next best thing is the cutest little Figurine you have ever seen. These little ceramic figures would also be a lovely gift for anyone who would love a real live rabbit as a pet, but cannot have one for one reason or another.
