|Beatrix Potter with a bunny|
You will recall that Angelika and her daughter visited a couple of days ago (how can you forget, I blogged it Monday?) and they glazed a few items they had made in this studio a month ago.

They live on a small farm near my house with some huge chickens and HUGE angora bunnies! Take a big bunny and cover it with six inches of fur, THAT is an angora bunny!
I am told that aside from the length and abundance of fur, angora bunny fur is also 6 times warmer than sheeps' wool!
Angelika's family raises the bunnies for this fur, which is woven into mittens and sweaters!
This dude has a certain MARX BROTHERS look going on....
I am not kidding, these rabbits are beagle sized...have a great weekend!
