BUNNY'S TALK SHOW

           

          

Buddy and Bunny have been keeping busy lately, catching up on their reading ("Knitting without Tears"), hanging out in the kitchen...

               

Enjoying the sunshine...talking about world peace and politics and stuff...meditating at the reflecting pond at Mentalphysics...(Buddy's not really meditating, he's thinking of his plans to open a Sandwich Shop in Yucca Valley, that Buddy!)

Here they are playing a game of Yahtzee, Bunny usually wins and Buddy doesn't seem to notice.

             

  Buddy likes to make sure the water is holding out in the water tank, Bunny likes to go for a swim just like they did in Petticoat Junction.   Last year, Buddy and Bunny helped the guys at Chambers DP Drilling work the drill for the well.  The beautiful San Jacinto Mountains are in the background.

 

A word from our museum curator, Bunny

       Hi, I'm Bunny, a crochet alligator and your helpful and knowledgeable curator here at The Crochet Museum. To start the tour, please scroll down the page for some views of some of our favorites in the Crochet Museum. If you have any questions, feel free to ask me and by all means, please be sure to visit my new "Bunny's Talk Show" page.  Note from Bunny:  "Some people think Shari makes these crochet animals, she does not, as she doesn't know how to knit or crochet.  She only admires it and collects it for the museum. One of these days she hopes to learn how but for now she would like to thank all of the anonymous folks (well, mostly old ladies--you know who you are--and we think you are goddesses who must be worshipped!) who went to all the trouble to make these lovely creations and to make the Crochet Museum possible.

     

             

Buddy and Bunny like to hang out and do nothing most of the time. One of their other favorite things to do is eat crochet Oreos.

Welcome to the Crochet Museum!

  Here are just a few of our many friends at the crochet museum...         

 

       

A fun couple on the left, dogs or bears?  We don't care, we just like that they are having so much fun. Here is the mystical dog on his flying pillow and of course, Humpty Dumpty...

               

Crochet Oreo cookie as recently seen in Bunny and Buddie's debut video "Want a Danish."  Cat note pad, what a helpful cat!  Two nice poodles crocheted over bottles.  We're wondering if Crochet Poodle Bottle covers were just a clever way for grandma to hide the liquor?  Ha ha, we're not sure but we're glad grandma got the idea for the poodles, more poodles below in the Poodle Wing.

                    

Crochet kangaroos, 2 in a row, with their babies.  Aren't they the cutest things? And what a charming couple here, Shari is thinking of making Randy and herself some outfits like those.

      

Poodles, that one on the right is from our friend Doug Newman, it's filled with golf balls!

 

    

Bunny calls this the Poodle Wing. These Poodles are also in a choir that will appear in Bunny's new self titled music video "Bunny"  

Well, that's the tour for today.  We here at the Crochet Museum thank you for stopping by.  Please come back soon, or sign up on our Crochet Museum email list to hear any kind of news that a crochet museum could have.

 

love from your friends,

Bunny, Buddy and Shari and the  Crochet Museum
