Last but not least, we have Felicia Hoshino, the author and illustrated of my beloved Sora and the Cloud, who offers to draw a portrait of your little loved one.
She also offers website banners, which I covet very very badly.
Which of these do you want? Do you have any other ideas of gifts for picture book fanatics?
OMG I want it alllllllllllReplyDelete
Yes me too! This is a problem. :)Delete
That ring is precious!ReplyDelete
Well, now I'm going to have to follow Felicia's blog (and dream of buying a website banner too ;p )ReplyDelete
Very cool ideas with the puzzle and board game.
Is it just me or do the Little Red Riding Hood earrings look very Red Knit Cap Girl inspired? Is that part of the reason for your want of them?
Oh I can see that now, so maybe it was a subconscious decision. I love kerchiefs. ;)Delete
Red knit girl!!! So cute. And those earings too :)ReplyDelete
