They forgot the power cords, and the baseboards, and the carpet and the . . . .

There's a lot the artist forgot to mention, and all of will bring disapproval down upon their heads!

I assume the raggedy patch at the very top of the chair is where the bunny chewed the upholstery before snuggling down for a nap.

Sofa, they forgot the sofa ;-)
Of course, there's nothing like '57 Bun.

I had no idea a rabbit would be allowed in the house in 1957! Were there house bunnies in 1957! :)

I didn't even think dogs were allowed in houses in 1957 ...

Well, those were the days. Somebunny had to be first ;-)

And yet science has still failed in its quest to get the bunny off the moon. Neither has the ceaseless quest for knowledge given up any of the many mysteries of the bunn. By the way, my sister and I were dressing our indoor bunnies in doll clothes way before that. They did get to romp in the back yard alot while we played on the swing set my Dad built himself, and they were invited to backyard parties. Everyone who knew about them had to promise to pretend not to see them. New guests who inquired about the rabbit or rabbits over there were told no rabbits were to be seen. By the way they were Big White Bunnies.

Specially made doll clothes. Bunny friendly. I can still see bright bunny eyes survey the wardrobe Mom made. The bunns were so happy. I understand that it is going to be difficult to accept, but these bunnies loved it. Their little glances - well this is not what we expected, but we are in. They were incredible.
