rabbit hill cottage

Does your cottage or home have a name? I loved capturing this charming "Rabbit Hill Cottage" and the bunnies, "Thumper and Maxie" are looking for carrots. I decided to add a carrot wind sock by the front door and a black and white awning to the sun porch. This was an illustration won as part of a give-away and I cannot wait to hear how the cottage owner likes the artwork.

Patricia~words just aren't enough to express the joy your beautiful painting of my home has brought me! When I bought this little cottage 10 years ago, it was all white~inside and out~with ugly, moldy metal awnings. I had already started working on the cottage itself when my mother moved in with me five years ago, along with 2 rabbits named Thumper and Maxie. Hence the name Rabbit Hill Cottage was born. She just turned 70 this past Friday and has always said she wants her legacy to me to be a beautiful yard that will remind me of her everyday. She loves to dig in the dirt and calls it her therapy. Her labor of love so far has created a beautiful rose garden in the back but the front is still a work in progress. I can't wait for your lovely artistic rendering of my cottage to arrive. Hopefully it will be the vision she needs to complete her legacy of love for me and give the cottage the beautiful front lawn it deserves! Sadly Thumper and Maxie are no longer with us (they both lived long, very pampered lives) but thanks to you, their spirit will still live on at Rabbit Hill Cottage. Thank you again for such a wonderful gift!

We have bunnies all over the place! I have to hold Molly back on our daily walks b/c she wants to chase them.

Love a cottage with a name. And, that carrot wind sock....darling!

Adorable! Thumper and Maxie look right at home at this lovely cottage. I'm glad to see that you "keep hopping along" creating happiness as you go. It's so inspiring!

Right now my home's name is "under construction" and the projects seem to be piling up! Once we're done, I'll need to come up with something clever - "domaine doodle" perhaps?

Patricia,
I love the whimsy in your paintings~ they make them truly yours.
I have been thinking of you and your family.

It is so cute!! Love the carrot by the door. We move way too much to name a house, maybe is our forever home:) When I was a kid we did have to un-name a house when we moved in. Villa Margene just didn't work for us.

JMW said...

Such a lovely illustration and house as well! No, we do not have a name for our home, although Chaos de Casa pretty much sums up life with little kiddos at our abode. :)

Loved Kim's story and how your art will continue the circle of great kindness.

margaret said...

Thank you so much for your comment on my blog. I enjoyed checking out yours as well! Just beautiful illustrations!

Our home actually does have a name: Evansgrove. The Evans' are the homeowners who have been incredibly generous to us as newlyweds. It feels so special referring to our home by its name & I hope to continue the trend in our new place!

I would think the winner would treasure your whimsical, marvelous illustration of their charming bungalow. I have always wanted to name a home, I just need to stay put in one space long enough.

You cannot go wrong with 'Rabbit Hill'. Who does not love rabbits?

I agree, for the most part, but don’t you feel as if the issue is more complex than that?
