Mr. Badger has arrived at Angela's house! Click over! Betty wrote a fun Badger post before she mailed him off. Read that one, too! Having Mr. Badger fly around the world is exciting. SO MANY people love the story The Wind in the Willows. Do you? I love the cozy parts when Mole sleeps over at Ratty's house and hears the river flowing by outside the guest room window. I love it when they stop at Mole's house after he's been away and Ratty tells him that his house is wonderful. When they stop in at Mr. Badger's house, I want to climb into the book and smell the earthy walls and gaze at the food stores. I read the book as an adult even though my sister had a gorgeous copy that she received for Christmas in 1964.
The photo below was taken at a friend's woodsy land in Washington. His dad MAKES this furniture and he does, too!
Wouldn't you LOVE to live in the woods and sit upon fine furnishings like this?
Badger is promoting hygge (look it up - you won't be sorry) and he is not racing across Europe. He's settling in well at each house he visits. We don't rush him. He's not interested in keeping up a crazy pace.
His friends were much busier on their world tour. He missed them while they were away.
See how worn they were when they returned to Denver?
It's not too late to host Mr. Badger when he returns to the states. He's going to France next.
Our guests leave tomorrow and then I'm going to a sleepover at Kelli's house on Thursday night. We'll keep up our usual doings until we leave for New Zealand on Sunday afternoon. I went to buy the Mickey Mouse shoes, but I saw these for 20 dollars less and I like their glittery glow. Do you?
It's been cloudy and rainy for two days, so it is the perfect setting for knitting. I'm making myself a wool hat for our trip because the temps on the south island are chilly. I have to stuff all the clothes I need in my backpack, so it's challenging to decide what to bring.
It's time to go downstairs and shove our dinner into the oven. Thank you for popping by and playing along with our Mr. Badger fun!
