We're into May and I'm still managing to keep up with taking a photo a day, thanks to Suzie and Photo365+1. Here are my current favourites:
Not by me this time, but by my sister some years ago now. It's a tiny felt Piglet (or "Plig-ett" as The Tall One used to say when he was little) and I've been meaning to take his picture since I bought a piece of October Afternoon paper which looks like the Hundred Acre Wood.
This one is dedicated to my blogging friend Carmen whose stories of making art and drawing with her girls inspired me to say - go on then, I'll do it too when The (Not So) Small One announced her art homework. We spent a happy afternoon drawing portraits. A first for me - I'd never ever drawn a face before. I won't be handing it in to be marked: I was a D student in art at school. But I might have another go..
I know, it's a gratuitous Little E photo really. But he was building a Lego tower at the time.
The (Not So) Small One's dressing table mirror, put up for her by her Dad to illuminate a little alcove off her bedroom
..and finally flag
There are a lot of them about at the moment. I found this one in TK Maxx (along with some very nice Kilner jars and ..)
Before I finish today I want to shout some encouragement to my blogging friend Abi who has a plan. First Thursday of the month, she runs Operation Speak Out to encourage everyone who reads to leave a comment. In her own words "In one day to fill the internet with words of encouragment and happiness ". De-lurk on a few of your favourite blogs today!
