This funny little painting turned up in the nooks and cranny op shop yesterday for $2. I don't think it was quite finished but it is appealing in a Maira Kalman kind of way.
One can always use an extra copy of The Very Hungry Caterpillar and we can never have enough Noah books around here.
Another Noah's Ark book. I know I indulge the Noahs but they are so troublesome otherwise.
This jangled some memory neurone somewhere deep in the abyss.
I love these hard covered P.D. Eastman books!
An absolute family favourite in mint condition,
another Dr Seuss hard back favourite,
and this cloth covered book for the fairy loving Short one. All these books came to the princely sum of $1 at Rob and Brian's!
This measuring cup looks almost new and I'd been looking for one for ages to replace an old original one I sold at a garage sale years ago.
Shorty also got a new chook egg collecting basket as we gave some eggs to somebody in her last one and forgot who. I must get some cartons.
Ah...we have re-arrived at the fairy ring phase having barely moved out of it with Lala. These red fruit are from a tree up at Mt Glorious the other day. Do you know what they are?
She was rewarded with a new wand and a specimen jar of jelly beans sans the black ones! The fairies must have a penchant for those.
That reminds me of the only joke I could remember as a child: What do you call an Italian Astronaut?
A Specimen. (chortle!)
