Overdue Children's Book




Dress: Buffalo Exchange
Slip: Neighbors Yardsale
Shoes: Target
Song of the Day: Psalm 91 by Garage Voice

It's been a while since I've posted about a kids book and I'm tired of posting nonsensical, whiny, crybaby rants.

So here you have it. Another child's book character inspired by a children's book. Funny thing is, we never had the books for these characters, I only found out about the books in the last couple years when I started perusing the internet trying to track down the toys that we had as children. If you have never met them or seen them, then I am sorry to say your childhood was missing a piece a whimsy. If you know these toys as well then you know about how precious they are, how wonderful the little squeak when you put your fingers in their arms and squeeze.
My mother still has our set from when we were kidlets but my big sis and I shared the one set and she can't split it up between the two of us so she keeps it at her house for the grandkidlets to play with. I have stalked ebay and have managed to come up with the mom, the dad and the log house. Hopefully I will get my mitts on the kiddo soon. Hope they strike a chord with you as well...but please don't outbid me on EBAY!!! ;-)

I found this dress last summer when we were looking at a school in Portland for The Mr.
I couldn't believe it when I noticed The Kidlet playing with the Mommy Squirrel and realized how much the outfit looks like that dress. Btw, I totally have a hat like hers. I kid you not. Seriously. I meant to take a pic of it. Darn, too bad I forgot. ;-)







Lovies and Living,


PS. been messing with the layout (meaning a computer savvy friend I call O. edited it for me because I have absolutely no idea about any of it.) got myself a flickr and am trying to figure out how to get some of the pics bigger, hope you guys like the new (ish) look. :-)

I have never heard of this before. They're so cute. Is it an American children's book?
