Fine Feathers: Victorian Photo Collage

My eldest daughter dearly wanted to babysit her school's rabbit for two weeks during spring break; I, uncertain that our golden retriever would share her sentiments, thought it an unwise move.

She has not, fortunately, resorted to putting a rabbit-ear headband on our very patient retriever.  (I tried this with our bulldogs once.)

The image above, from the Met's current exhibition on Victorian photo collages, does more than put headbands on animals.  Those bonnets feel festive and grand, in an Easter Parade (Easter Swim?) sort of way.

Why those Victorians are a strange bunch!

I am shopping for rabbit ears for Lily. I haven't found them yet. I feel sure that once I do find them that Lily will refuse to wear them.

I got some really cute rabbit ears at the Nordstrom's kids department for my daughter and for myself.

These are great! I love their dreamy qualities. What if ducks really looked this way?

Pottery Barn Kids has rabbit ears online and in store.

We once took a rabbit home for spring break and not only was it a gifted escape artist, our dog took an unwholesome interest in it. I think you did the right thing.
