Bunnies for Honey

Morning guys,

Today I've put together a post featuring lots of lovely bunny inspired pieces in memory of my pet rabbit, Honey, who recently passed away. 

With Easter and Spring just around the corner, this is the perfect time to add a bunny print, motif, or accessory in to your wardrobe. 

I've collected together some of my favourite current bunny clothes, bags, jewellery, and accessories. I'm personally in love with the ASOS Curve shirt and the ASOS rucksack, and also have a soft spot for the New Look t-shirt, and the gold bunny watch.

Which piece or pieces are your favourites?

If I had my way and enough money, I'd buy them all! 

So, I dedicate this little post to Honey, the last of my fur babies to leave this world for another.

Honey, was sent off to bunny heaven two weeks ago. She was eleven, three years older than the average life expectancy for a rabbit, and her age had finally caught up with her. There aren't enough words to express just how much I miss that beautiful animal.

I bought Honey and her sister Tigerlily in 2002 when they were just eight weeks old, and I was nearly seventeen. They were tiny little things. I was at college studying animal care, and two days later I began my first paid job. It's strange how much I associate with that part of my past. Tigerlily passed away last Easter Monday aged ten, but Honey survived her by almost an entire year.

I wouldn't change anything about the eleven years I had as a rabbit owner. They both bought me over a decade of happiness, and I loved them both unconditionally. My only regret is that my back injuries caused me to miss the last months of their lives, time I'll never be able to get back. Although, I'm so grateful for the time I had with them, and I loved being around them. They were both mischievous, and cheeky, but gentle and affectionate, too. Tigerlily was the bold, fearless one who never failed to rush over and greet me each time I went to see them; whilst Honey was often a little shy and reserved. Though I will always remember catching her tearing the wall paper off the living room wall when she was a few months old!! Little git. 

I really miss both of my beautiful bunnies, my babies, but I'm content knowing I gave them the best life I possibly could. 

This post is dedicated to my Honey bunny, the most beautiful red head I've ever known.

The Honey Bunny aged nine, I think.

Rest in peace, big bunnies.
