Linzer Lane's Newest Character Revealed!

 Our lives have changed dramatically this month - we left our one room loft apartment in Jersey City (a town my husband and I called home for over ten years), and moved into a winter house rental in Belmar, NJ. We now have access to nature, (and tranquility!), on a daily basis. Leon hasn't skipped a beat, and thinks that his new home is just peachy.

Instead of daily fire alarms, non-stop high-rise construction noise, and concrete plazas, he now has a garden to run in, and the beach two blocks away. The pandemic certainly pushed us into this situation with both of us working from home - but it's been a blessing in disguise!

The day we pulled up to our new home, there was a rabbit out front - and we all agreed that was a good sign!

As the weeks of progressed, one rabbit in particular comes to greet Leon and I every single day, and so we've given her the name of 'Pinecone'. 

Pinecones are a'plenty here in this quaint beach town, and her fur mimics their hues perfectly.

I find her so absolutely endearing, I knew I had to create a special character in her honor for my Linzer Lane series! Here is the first sketch of her below. 

'Pinecone the Cottontail' will be a seasonal character that runs a Christmas Tree stand during the holidays at the Linzer Lane Chriskindlmarkt. Pinecone loves gingham outfits and grabbing gingerbread to go from Iggie the Hedgehog.
