Day 10 |2.38pm | Childhood

There is a garden in every childhood, an enchanted place where colors are brighter, the air softer, and the morning more fragrant than ever again. - Elizabeth Lawrence

These toys belong to my husband.
My mother-in-law handed me to them a few years back... I was as happy as a clam!
They don't make toys as fantastic as they used to... agreed?

Chester the Turtle. You wind up his back and away he goes with his flippers rattling!
Lovey the Penguin. He never falls down! 
I think penguins look very smart and lovey indeed with bow ties and long eyelashes!
We name all our stuff toys in this household. 
Ormond and Finlay the Dogs. 
Jake the Lion.
Bibi Bear the Bear. 

Miss 4 might be able to take you on a Toy Tour in our house one day.
She chatters heaps! 
 That's a little healthy stash of Little Golden Books. I have big plans to make it 'healthier'. 

 My fave Little Golden Book. I love Mary Blair. 
32 pcs. Make A Pair game. Given by one of my oldest bestest friends to my Miss 4. Too much fun! We have lots of fun overturning the whole box and watching all the pieces fall and scatter everywhere. Fastest fingers match a pair! 
A happy and simple childhood is one of life's greatest blessings.
If you're doing the photo challenge too, please do feel free to link here or facebook 
so I can follow your lovely pics too! :)
