Of Hoops and Tie-Dye

Could it be... the start of festival season is fast approaching! 
We were the ones trading in our fancy dos for tie-dye and hiking boots to join the ranks and Natural Living Fest,  which we'd heard of minutes before.  

Spring always has such a sense of renewal and hope attached to it....
Hope of wandering!

Birds of a Feather

Meanwhile in strange, wonderful Philli...
This is the Wagner Free Institute of Science.... or taxidermy showcase. 

Its bizarre.

Manes and Mannequins

Meanwhile, again in Philli...
At the Mummer's Museum. 

Loving the colourful costumes.... would anyone notice if I wore one to work?

Love Letters

Oh, Philli, you already had stolen my heart! 
Seriously impressive graffiti on the drive.  

Of Snowy Hallways and Trolls Feet

Every year, the school's PTA sponsors Literature Night, wherein parents volunteer to decorate a room in accordance to the theme of the shindig. The idea is to encourage kiddos to love books and reading by making them come alive.  This year, my team opted to do a room hallway. 
Following with the theme, Here Comes Trouble, we chose to recreate Jan Brett's wintery classics. 
If  you aren't  acquainted with Jan Brett's Svenska inspired northern tales, they're delightful.
Photo booths, winter forests, new troll names...
obstactle courses, nature tables, troll hats, and faerie houses...
Trolls are for tipping and running away from.
After asked if I'll be doing this again next year....
