Happy New Year from Percy!

We at Hello Percy would like to wish everybody a happy and safe new year – let’s hope 2012 is a little less riddled with natural disasters.

Late in 2011 there was a new edition to our team – a little black Netherland Dwarf bunny by the name of Claude. Welcome, Claude! His role will be to pick up some admin slack and also to provide general studio entertainment.

His favourite past times include eating copious amounts of hay, and doing flips whilst cavorting in the garden.

Claude’s recent appearance has been very warmly welcomed by the other members of the team, particularly Bowie the border collie, who likes to round him up at any given opportunity.

Percy thinks they’re both ridiculous and continues to prefer spending quality time with his own reflection.

Happy 2012!

Oh, Percy…

Introducing Percy and some of his antics…

“Hello friend! Why, you’re just so handsome…”

Hitching a ride – whoa!

 

His favourite toy – looking good, Perce.

 

The LOOOOOVE stick!

 

He’ll talk to anyone who will lend him an ear.

“So then I says to her, I says…POP! goes the weasel!”

 

“Hmm, what have we here?”

Percy’s arch nemesis, Frankie. He’s small but he packs a punch.

 

There is endless entertainment at our house! And I haven’t even mentioned the dog yet… Ohh, the dog.

 

Little Friends

Ever since I was a small child, I have always loved birds. I attribute this to spending many hours with my nan in her garden at Shoreham, spotting little birds hopping about, eating tiny insects. She taught me their names and their calls, and I delighted in watching their antics.

Some things don’t change! Now, I am lucky enough to work part-time for a jeweller at a tranquil artists’ studio on the Mornington Peninsula, purpose-built in middle of the bush. While I sit working at my bench, little wrens unknowingly come flitting up near the windows to gather their lunch. Recently there have been several brilliant, blue boys, who persistently chase the poor girls around – so naughty! They always seem to have lots of girlfriends. After heavy rain they have a ball bathing in the puddles, splashing around and dipping ther heads under the water.

My love of nature, and photography, has led me to establish Hello Percy. I’m so excited to have gotten to this stage! It has taken a lot of research, time and love, and I hope people can appreciate the personality of the little characters in this range of cards. I love talking to the animals, and hope I can continue to incorporate it into my job. Even though I get some strange glances at times… Oh well!

Another little friend – baby Blue Wren. So fluffy!
