Poppet and Widget!
That's right, thanks to The Night Circus and the always wonderful Erin Morgenstern, the bunnies now have names.
Today, as I whiled away the hours in the twitter-verse, I saw a tweet by Erin Morgenstern regarding a beautiful drawing of Poppet and Widget from her book, The Night Circus, who are brother and sister. (Which if you haven't read, you REALLY should. It's amazing. Vivid, imaginative and utterly captivating). When I saw her tweet, it hit me like a bolt of lightning. I had the names for my bunnies!
Of course, I had to give credit where credit was due, so I immediately tweeted my thanks to Erin Morgenstern for her brilliant character names that would now also become my adorable bunnies' monikers. And she tweeted BACK! I'm always so excited when this happens. I think it's amazing that there are so many amazing authors out there willing to take the time to connect with their fans. I completely geeked out over our small twitter conversation and spent the rest of my day smiling like a fool. (I guess you could say I was "twitterpated". HAH!)
In any case, I know you're probably wondering who's who. Poppet is the little brown and white bunny, and Widget is the grey and white one. They're already as close and inseparable as their namesakes and I think it's going to be a really great fit.
So thank you Erin Morgenstern! Everyone go out and buy The Night Circus! It's a fabulous book and you can learn all about Poppet and Widget. In closing, here is another photo of the bunnies and the book that inspired their names.
