Snow Bunnies

The stage was set.


A petite vintage wrought iron chair, satin snow balls, a back drop of lighted glass blossoms on silver vines atop an antique farmhouse table.


And bunny sisters.

It was the most delightful photo shoot with the most beautiful furry four-legged super models ever.  Within fifteen minutes I shot over 150 photographs, which I have edited to less than half, and am sharing with you a few of my favorite images.


Although, this is not the entire purpose of my story today.
We have some news we must share.

Several months ago, during a Spellbound Witchy Tea Party in the month of Halloween you may remember that I briefly introduced you to these two new precious buns, a white Hotot Netherland Dwarf Cleopatra...



...and her sister, a blue-eyed white Netherland Dwarf, who at the time we named Amalfi or Fifi because of her mesmerizing Mediterranean blue eyes {which also just happens to be one of Pantone's "Color of the Year 2016" called Serenity.  Little did we know.}



{Don't be jealous, Gucci. We miss you still, always will, and you have not been forgotten.  You would love these little girls.}

Gucci, 2009 - 2015

So this is the deal...Cleopatra is definitely living up to her glamorous and classical name.  She is a princess.  Her black eyeliner is flawlessly applied, every day.  Never a black eyelash out of place.  Her pink nose the perfect shade of blush.  Cleo, as tiny as she is at one and a half pounds, is the girl in charge.



However, Amalfi {Fifi} does not seem to really like her name, nor does Guss, or us, for that matter.  She certainly does not speak Italian {as Cleo does - she is fluent in the language of lovers}...but her sister is a quintessential Southern girl.

Bless her heart, although she is about one pound curvier than her sis Cleo, she is definitely the more timid of the two and is shy about letting us know that she is not pleased with her name.

When we call her Fifi, she twitches her little pink nose at us and does a seriously sassy bunny dance.



You can see in these photographs from our Winter Wonderland Photo Shoot {this will be the first of many, I am sure}, that the name we originally gave her is just not a proper fit for this delicate doe.



A little ball of fluff.



Pure as snow.
Snow White.



Sweet as a Southern Belle. 
Soft as cotton.

Such a cotton puff that we have re-named her "Cotton."
Now she and Cleo are doing a seriously happy bunny dance.


Cleo and Cotton.

Sisters.
Never spent a day apart from one another.


{Please Momma, no more photographs!}

Precious buns.

As always, thank you for your visit.

Ciao amici,
Suzanne

Being a Southern girl myself, I love Cotton's name! I was going nuts over their photos on Instagram yesterday. Both bunnies are so cute! I love Cleo's eyeliner, and Cotton's eyes are so pretty.

Hi Ladies,

Thanks so much for your visit. Ricki Jill, we just had to rename her Cotton! You will see these little girls again soon.

Ciao,
Suzanne
