Josephine Rabbit Licensed to Sell Tea and Tobacco

Tucked into the corner of the secretary desk is a tiny vignette of a Beatrix Potter scene. It is only about 4 inches by 3 inches.



I used a wooden candle holder, with a doily on top for height. Let's take a closer look.


Oops! I should have dusted!

I have been practicing with close-up photos, and this was a perfect subject.



Those little bunny faces are only about the size of your pinky fingertip.

The sign behind Josephine Rabbit says "Licensed to Sell Tea and Tobacco"




I am turning tail and hopping over to join Marty at Tabletop Tuesday.

Your Beatrix Potter figure is adorable. It has so much detail for such a tiny piece. Their little faces are so sweet they make you smile.
I like how you have it displayed on the candleholder with the doily. Thanks for your sweet comments and I'm like you at GW... usually seeing someone with a basket full and mine empty. LOL I just had a lucky day with those things.

The Beatrix Potter figure is beautiful, I just need to go shopping for rabbits...it's difficult here to find them, eggs yes, but bunnies, not really. I love it all!
