Wednesday Bits And Pieces

A Pelham Puppets cowgirl from ebay. Oh dear I seem to have started a new collection. (I bought another puppet at the weekend but more from her another time.) This girl unfortunately smells of cigarettes. I will hang her in the garden on dry days until it goes. She is in good condition otherwise.
Cheerful stickers from Sainsbury's.
Lily who has lost her meow. She normally meows all the time but has lost her voice.
This is a snake in bed. He has a little pillow and a duvet!
This is one of our pet African snails (at school) We got them before the holidays and they were fingernail size. They have grown to about an inch and a half in two months. They are called Speedy and Ben Ten. They eat cuttle fish, cucumber, carrot, cabbage and like to hide on the roof of their tanks.
I found this site today through a link that Anairam sent me. It is beautiful with lots to look at. I would write more but it is bedtime! Thanks Anairam!

Hi Sarah:

I stumbled on your blog via Vanessa Valencia (AFancifulTwist).

I've enjoyed having a look at all of your photos and I love your sense of words.

What if you stuck her in a bag with some baking soda? (The doll, not Lily!)

I love that header!

I used to have lots of puppets as a child and we put on shows. I don't know where they went.
Love the snail...

I used to love string puppets and gave them to my own children. Pelham puppets are the bees' knees in puppetry aren't they? or aren't they?
Poor Lily - is she well otherwise? She's very pretty.

The cowgirl puppet is adorable. Easy to see why the new addiction! ;o) Poor, sweet Lily...do hope she finds her voice again. I love a vocal cat. :o) Love the names of the snails--Speedy, that's terrific! Happy Day, Sarah ((HUGS))

Hi Sarah - it's lovely to be back home and catching up with my favourite blogs!! Try putting your puppet in a bag with one of those scented sheets you can buy to put in the tumble drier...
love, Anne

I had an Andy Pandy Pelham puppet- he was great!
I love the top sunflower. It loks sort of thoughtfully sad.
