jimminy cricket

There are crickets and creatures hiding in amoungst your garden.
Where the honey suckles grow and the beetle bugs jitter.
Little do you know they live in hollow trees with their houses inside.
Jam and trinkets they sell it all and where can you find this is Miss Lady Bugs store.
Fire Flies float like paper lanters do and Jitter bugs dance as you imagine they do.
Under mushrooms you can find creatures who have eyes like kaleidoscopes.
though Im not sure of their name as they arent in science books.
There are things in this world our eyes have never gazed upon,
but if you look closely I know you will see.

Good Find.

I stumbled across these incredible books in one of my favourite shops and adored everyone that I picked up - which was all of them. This is all because of a man by the name of M. Sasek.
M.Sasek worked as a painter and illustrator for most of his life. Starting with This is Paris published in 1958, the books he wrote painted a delightful and evocative picture of some of the world's great cities and countries!- Everything from New York, to Ireland and even Australia. Pick up a book if you can, as he'll take you on an adventure to the cities you've always wanted to go to.

Love Letters.

this is such a beautiful website where people pour out their hearts and secrets to their crushes. some are lame, some arent poetic, but some make your heart drop.

These are by far some of my favourites:

October 24
red-haired boy in the supermarket,
you’re my favorite. i like that you stock the milk aisle. i like that you look at me a little when i pretend to deliberate between 2% and skimmed.
i like your hands. i sometimes pretend we’re married. and i kiss you when you’re off to work, to stock the milk.
— green-eyed girl in the supermarket

To girl:
"you’re beautiful. you’re beautiful the way sunlight falling silently across a rumpled bed sheet is beautiful, honest and surreal. i hope one day we’ll know each others’ names."
Love Boy.

September 12
You are the peanut butter to my jelly. The Bert to my Ernie. The honey to my bee.
— girl

September 1
silly boy,
you really have no idea.
— head over heels

The End.

How wondeful are these stills from the end of movies. I enjoy these very much. I found them on flickr.

I hope this makes you smile

I can't remember where I found these wonderful photos. However I hope you enjoy them and that they make you smile. Thank you to the genius behind them.

Lazy day.

I got new pajamas today and these are also my new slippers. Peter Alexander is full of trapeze artists, soilders, ice-cream and lions in cages. I think he may have visited the circus recently. it is truely wonderful.

Also I am ashamed to say that today was the first time I have ever read the picture book where the wild things are- I know, However I am excited to see the film which will be out December 3rd. Not long now.
