In need of warming... :-)))

My sleepy little Mouse, which I've had for a long time.  Awwwww, I think  he is just so cute.  And he reminds me of a favorite Christmas Time book....

"Mr. Willoby's Christmas Tree."

This may well have been a book, which I first learned of, on the old tv program "Captain Kangaroo."

Now there is "an old chestnut."  ,-)  Yes, I'm so "olden," that my kids watched "Capt. Kanagaroo"!

Oh I am so cold.  No, it's not really cold in our house.  My saying is; "I'm too old to be cold."  But still, it seems to be a state of mind, with me.  So I sit here with my afternoon coffee... a pretty white scalloped tea cup....  And open up my "Flower Fairies of The Winter" book.

Who would not be warmed, by The Song of the Holly Fairy?

And look how cozy and sweet, is the Fairy illustration, of The Song of The Old-Man's-Beard Fairy...  Don't you just want to cuddle him, and sing him a lullaby....?  :-)

And look at the precious Christmas Tree Fairy!

"A dolly-fairy stands on top,
Till children sleep;  then she
(A live one now!) from bough to bough
Goes gliding silently.
O magic sight, this joyous night!
O laden, sparkling tree!"

There!  That's better!  Between my warm cup of afternoon coffee, and precious Flower Fairies of the Winter, I'm warmed up now!  :-)

Good Morning Tessa! Your little mouse is very sweet, and I really like the carved Santas on your mantel as well. I wonder, did your husband carve them? I love that folk carving. I have a carved Santa as well, but the man who sold him to me has since passed away. Your fairy book is very nice, and something I would've fallen in love with when I was a little girl ... the illustrations are wonderful. I did go and have a look at The Here & Now, and I think you've found yourself a soulmate there! Very pretty blog with lots to admire. Have a great day! Wendy x
