Velveteen Shadows

Welcome to Shadow Shot Sunday!
It's Easter Weekend, so we found a Velveteen Rabbit
just waiting....
waiting for us to take perfectly shadowed pictures of him!

"It doesn't happen all at once," said the Skin Horse.

"You become.
It takes a long time.

That's why it doesn't happen often to people
who break easily, or have sharp edges,
or who have to be carefully kept.
Generally, by the time you are Real,
most of your hair has been loved off,
and your eyes drop out
and you get loose in your joints and very shabby.

But these things don't matter at all,
because once you are Real you can't be ugly,
except to people who don't understand."    

 — The Velveteen Rabbit   

(We love the story of the Velveteen we had to share!)

Join all of the Shadow Catchers around the world
so, come with us and visit Hey Harriet
for more well-loved shadows!

Love your shadow shots for the day and the velveteen bunny! And what perfect words! Wonderful! Hope you have a very Happy Easter weekend! Enjoy!

I like the story, too! He was real, I felt that throughout the whole story. Happily when the disease went through, he wasn't placed in the fire, thus ensuring a happy ending. No velveteen animal will ever be 'loved' too much. Great bunny here...Happy Easter!
