Peter and the Wolf

Remember Peter and the Wolf?  Did you listen to it as a child with those delightful musical personalities?  It is a very fond memory for me.  Something reminded me of it today and I went on a search to recover a copy of it.  But not just any version will do.  It has to be the old Walt Disney version with Sterling Holloway narrating.
I did find some delightful Peter and the Wolf tidbits on youtube.  I strongly suggest you watch them.  They will brighten your day.   Walt Disney      Peter 1    Peter 2
Then in my search I turned to Etsy to see if I could find any Peter and the Wolf there.  I stumbled onto this Etsy shop.  What fun!  This artist has such wonderful creativity using the fantasies and imaginations of childhood stories.  
Please take the time to go to The Mymble's Daughter .  Spend some time just meandering through her imagination.  You'll enjoy the escape.    Pictured here are some of my favorites.

Daffodils and Turtles

It's Springtime!   Well, not quite, actually.  But maybe if we say it enough times, it will be true.  The daffodils are up and it won't be long until my box turtles are up - awake, that is and above the ground.  We have 3 box turtles that live freely in our backyard.  They each have a problem.  Goldie has only her 2 front feet.  Claudette Colbert has one foot missing.  And Cleopatra's shell looks like she fell into the garbage disposal.  But they live happily and  freely in the backyard, spending much of their summer time in the garden eating tomatoes and sleeping under the potato leaves.

With Spring in the air, I've created some "Springy" journals.  Wouldn't it be fun to record all the happenings of new life this Spring?
