Sounds like a lovely way to spend the weekend. The big girl and I read the whole little house series last year and really enjoyed it.


I looooove little house on the prairie.

You can start to understand how the USans got so obsessed with guns too, with all those wolves and bears and whatnot.


I love that first photo! Gorgeous.

Hyena In Petticoats


It's been ages since I frequented the East Coast, but next time I'm there, I'm totally coming to visit - we can have martinis and go op shopping! woo!



I was enchanted by the maple syrup thingies in the snow. Great stories.


My little person & I have been reading the whole series too (we're now onto the story of Almanzo's childhood, Farmer Boy - recommended). Completely love them. They highlight how many amazing practical self-sustaining skills we have lost - always makes me feel a little (OK alarmingly) lardy in my modern computer-car-occasional-bike existence. Hey, tilling the metre square patch of potatoes and corn with a g&t in one hand comes close, doesn't it?


Fabulous photos! Sounds like a lovely weekend. I spent mine making a stuffed "M".


I just relived a 30 year old nail bitey moment.


I read all the Laura Ingalls Wilder books to my boys when they were between about 4 and 7. They adored them. If you want to try a bit of gender bending reading, check out 'My Side of the Mountain' also American by Jean Craighead George - an 8 year old book at least but wonderful fantasy of a life independent of all adults and being free in the world. there's even a wikipedia article on it so others must love it too.
We also made dollies like yours (boy ones with feral attitudes!)
Love reading about the fun in your household - kids fun & adult fun.


Hello, just discovered your wonderful blog (via loobylu's blog) just wanted to let you know how beautiful and vibrant your images are, just what I need to brighten up my grey British January.
Thank you
