practice makes perfect

My daughter decided to take an old check register and practice
her letters.  She likes to put it in her bag and carry it around,
because you never know when you'll need to jot down a letter
or two!  She will be starting Kindergarten in the Fall - I think we
are off to a great start!  Way to go Olivia!

tamar mogendorff

I have always been such a fan of Tamar Mogendorff.  Her work is so magical
and unique.  My all time favorite pieces are the bird cage and bird houses.  Oh
how I want one of each!  I think if I had to choose I would choose the bird cage. 
Head over to her website and be ready to oooh and aaaah!
