Shadow Shot Sunday

This is my book doll. Yesterday, I found time for some much needed dusting in the bedroom, and the fun part-rearranging all the things from the many collections. The book doll ended up next to the book pile and made a dramatic reading shadow. For more shadows from around the world, visit Tracy at HeyHarriet here!


Things people have made this week that I liked-
Anairam made a paper angel.
Anne made tiny bunting
Mary's grand daughter Hannah made a lovely book for her-look at the paperclip binding-brilliant!
Rebecca made snowflakes with her students.
Aimee made funny pictures using the Boden catalogue.
Linda Sue made butter rolls and lavender bags.
Leenie made some massive pies!

Love your book girl - one day I must remember to make one! Thanks for the namecheck for my tiny bunting - I enjoyed making it, and plan to make more with Christmas paper. Just caught up on your oprevious post - hope you get everything sorted out - it is so frustrating when you have no say in something which affects you. We have lots of snow - if only I could send you some!!

I used to love a good tidy/clean and then rearranging everything. Sadly, I don't have much to rearrange here!
Love the book girl and her shadow. I must visit your recommendations, but tomorrow, off to bed now!
Have a good day tomorrow.

SHADOW-CHASER

Chasing shadows here and there,
Chasing shadows everywhere;
Chasing shadows in the park;
Chasing shadows long past dark;
Chasing shadows through the light;
Chasing shadows day and night—
Shadow-chaser, don’t you see?
Shadows were just meant to be!

Yes, dramatic. Sort of Edgar Degas-esque. I like the little cat peeking over the edge too.

Hope you are staying warm and getting a break from the loose shoe laces and runny noses of your little friends at school. I've worked with that age and love how they have such a fresh view on life, but they ARE high maintenance.

Oh, and thanks for the kind mention of the pies. They were good, but they are GONE!
