The Sun is Shining

HEEEEHAAAAA!!!! I'm such a Vitamin D junkie. We haven't had sun since Thursday and today it's OUT!!! Oh wow, I feel human again.

I was making the balance of the pet elements this morning and Rainer was watching me run some styles and commented that these pieces reminded him of the wooden Fischer Price puzzles he had as a child. He went off to the garage and next thing he comes back with a HUGE box. All his old toys that for some reason we could never give to goodwill. He was rummaging in there and man was this a trip down memory lane. Well we found the puzzles (minus a few pieces of course) and would you believe it, parts of the pictures were torn off the edges. Just like these elements. I would just like to know why he kept the little red car with only 1 wheel.

We were sitting there looking at this assortment and decided that we're going to build a huge collage of his toys for his 21st in September. I unfortunately have very few photographs of them growing up as we had a burglary and the burglars stole my wooden box with all my photos in it. They must have throught it was a jewellery box and I can tell you if it was jewellery I'd have been a lot less upset. Their first locks of hair and first "real" shoes were in the box as well. Things that can never be replaced.

So on to the rest of my "Fischer Price" freebie. These are birds and fish and I call it Cages and Tanks. The pinkish paper reminded me of the sandpaper you put in the bottom of birdcages.

Here's a preview

And you can collect it here

Now I'm off to go and enjoy the sun. Have a peacefull Sunday.
