Happy Friday! Yahoo for SPRING break!
I have a new to me The Wind in the Willows illustrated by Tasha Tudor. Beautiful! I saw a copy at the antique mall but it was too expensive (40 dollars! Yikes!) so I ordered this copy for under ten dollars (yahoo for Amazon!)
Look at the sweet expression on Mole's face. He's so nice.
Mr. Toad looks so silly in a washer woman's dress!
This is my favorite! I like to close my eyes and see the small dock for Ratty's boat. The Willow boys are in Ireland at the moment and shall soon set forth for England.
Lisa at Pen and Ink sent me this sketchbook. I've been using it.
Does this guy scare you? I cut off his speech bubble because he says REAL bossy things. I didn't want you to think he was saying this particular bossy thing to you.
Can you see my sweet BP journal? I have collected four of Beatrix's original tales, too.
This is an Amelia leftover from our Jenny. Do you know about Amelia's journals? So cute! This face reminds me of yesterday when all the sixth graders were super hyped up for a reading event taking place in the library. It was a very mixed up day and stressful. Sixth graders need structured predictable days. Whew. I think they also need a week off! Me, too!
I am so excited to go to California. I am going to meet up with Sara from Come Away With Me. We are going to sit together for lunch and enjoy each others' company! Wahoo!
I hope this good day warms your bones and gives you an extra boost. Thank you so much for coming by to say hello! (BIG HUG!)
