Paper plates for Milly's window, inspired by the current Romance Was Born collection, Lil Lord Fauntleroy.

Even though the outcome is quite fetching, my palette (below) was the incidental masterpiece of the paint session ... that, and the inevitable foot-in-photo moment (above), which revealed to me how well I had co-ordinated my outfit with my activity.

It is a good idea, apparently, to say Rabbits, Rabbits on the first day of the month. Unfortunately, it should be the very first thing that you utter, which I didn't manage (not to give the impression that I've said anything more sophisticated in the past couple of hours).

Anyway, Rabbits, Rabbits everybody. And Happy Easter. I drew some bunnies for my family on the weekend, and made a very hasty scan of them before they were separated for individual cards. At top, you can see small tufts and toenails belonging, no doubt, to a Flemish Giant.

For other great beasts, have a look at these drawings by Mirico Machiko, who is the artist that I can't get out of my head at the moment*. (Actually, I thought there was a ferocious rabbit among these animal portraits but perhaps I imagined it).

*thanks to Gracia + Lousie, who always post brilliant finds at the Book.
