Feel free to hide in the hollyhocks.
I'm sorry, but Pie Face is feeling a bit shy today.
Reaching for the sun and sky!
Here it is, August 19! I cut out the buntings for my classroom. I already have bunting hanging all over, but these are for the window and my desk.
Now, I have had Beatrix on the brain lately. Birdie has the book below, A Visual Guide to the World of Beatrix Potter. I love it! I borrowed it last night after we babysat the girls for a few hours. Earlier we had looked through it slowly, savoring all the newsy information and relishing the pictures. I couldn't sleep last night because I was thinking of all things BP. I got up and feasted on it again. One delightful page in the book mentioned that Beatrix's characters are always busy.
- they raise children
- they do housework
- they take in laundry
- they sell produce
- they work as gardeners
- they cook
- they work as gamekeepers
My mama sent me the tea cups, saucers, and spoons she and my sister used for the tea party at Guemes Island. I gathered my precious BP things and took a photograph for you.
Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle is my favorite. We both iron. I must make myself a blue and yellow striped skirt. It looks so nice on her.
Tomorrow the students arrive.
I will be back to let you know that the first day of school came and went.
Thank you for looking in on me today!
I wish you gardens, books, and bunnies.
