This is a long overdue post. I decided to finally move my butt and get it done. A bunch of lovely awards – considering no one awards me anything anymore 😦
Itchy only gave me ONE.. so I’m going to act pricey.. oh what the hell- thanks, Itch!
and the one above from Kiran – apologies Kiran, I knew I was forgetting something. And thank you very much!
And a tag by Maid in Malaysia – I wanted to give this some more time and get more pics but I haven’t managed to, so we’ll go with the ones I had the patience to click. MiM – when you see how painstakingly I’ve clicked pictures in the sunlight, you’ll forgive me for the delay! And they have loads more but I ran out of steam 😦
Starting with this – its a wooden animal jigsaw puzzle. Each animal has on it, the alphabet that it starts with. A cool idea although the execution isn’t the best because the order is random and the pieces don’t fit perfectly which makes it hard for little fingers to bang them into place. Either way, a big favourite because its full of animals.
These kite shaped cushion covers are from NID. Sur gave them to the kids long ago and though they’re not toys, they’re a permanent feature on their bed because of the shape and the bright colours. She also gave them a lovely handmade cloth rat that I didn’t click.
This one’s from Ro. It’s a bankura horse (I think) and its a money bank. The kids keep filling it and refilling it and it keeps them busy for ages!
Puppets from Dilli Haat.
A metal kite hanger from Dilli Haat. Those are their lunch bags hanging on it.
School bags from the Auro ashram in Pondicheri.
Yes, the elephant bag belongs to the Bean. Has anyone noticed the preponderance of elephants in this house?!
