A picture’s worth a thousand words But you can’t see what those Shades of gray keep covered
You should have seen it in colorjamey johnson | in colorI love old things.I love things with character.A story - bet you never heard that before? I bought this book in a tiny bookstore in Norwich, England last summer."Now We Are Six" by AA Milne is just the sweetest little book and was originally published in 1927 in London.
I often grab it before I write blog posts and look at the pictures,read the sweet "through child's eyes" poemsand mostly get inspired.(look at the cute little bear butt climbing up the stairs hahah oh man I love it.)
It's a secret, but this will be a part of the gift basket in some way ;)
But I'll give you a hint:This is my favorite poem in the book :DAnd try not to just skip over it! It's so so so cute!You have to read it!
"Let's look for dragons," I said to Pooh."Yes, let's," said Pooh to MeWe crossed the river and found a few -"Yes those are dragons all right," said Pooh."As soon as I saw their beaks I knew.That's what they are," said Pooh, said he."That's what they are," said Pooh.
"Let's frighten the dragons," I said to Pooh."That's right," said Pooh to Me."I'm not afraid," I said to Pooh,And I held his paw and shouted "Shoo!Silly old dragons!" - and off they flew."I wasn't afraid," said Pooh, said he,"I'm never afraid with you."
So wherever I am, there's always Pooh,There's always Pooh and Me."What would I do?" I said to Pooh,"If it wasn't for you," and Pooh said: "True,It isn't much fun for One, but TwoCant stick together," says Pooh, says he."That's how it is," says Pooh.
