The Rabbit asked one day, “‘What is REAL?’…’Real isn’t how you are made,’ said the Skin Horse. ‘It’s a thing that happens to you. When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just play with you, but Really loves you, then you become Real.'”  [Excerpt from The Velveteen Rabbit by Margery Williams.]

And so, there is always that toy (or 2) that inevitably becomes part of the family – that’s there at mealitmes and bedtimes and that can get diaper rash and have intelligent conversations.

I got this idea from my Anita Kaushal book to have paintings done of my kids loveys and stumbled upon Jennifer Maher’s Custom Toy Portraits site.  It seems that Jennifer will work one-on-one with you to create a handpainted canvas (from pictures of the toy and a little of its background story).

I can’t wait.
