Lovely things!

Happy new year! I hope you had a good winter break :)
We have some new residents in our house. The moustachioed 2 on the left are by Bobby Dazzler, and the 2 stripy fellows on the right are by the wonderful Donna Wilson. A funny little motley crew to keep us entertained!

I received a surprise package from Japan, which included beautiful handkerchiefs spelling Oki's name in Japanese, and a fantastic book by Bruno Munari. This lovely package was put together by Nishiyama-san from children's book publisher Froebel-kan, who I met in Japan nearly 3 years ago. Oki and I enjoyed the book very much :D

A couple more beautiful picture books we received this Christmas...oooh very inspiring stuff!! It makes me want to make pictures!
