I love this book!!! Sophie Blackall is a wonderful illustrator and writer. She decided to create a book [one of her many publications], using "Missed Connections" from Craigslist [which is, in and of itself, a funny and beautiful read]. I think my favorite [or at last one of my top 5 favorites] is this one:
titled "Owl Lady in the Red Dress" and reads "We both purchased owl statues today. You are the classy looking dame in a red dress. I am the mustachioed gentleman. I think we should meet up and discuss further wildlife decor." - I love it so much I could squeal!!! Such great little stories and they are all true! And then, along came this:
my long awaited copy of Ms. Emily Winfield Martin's book "Oddfellow's Orphanage" ~ I've had it pre-ordered for months! It is so adorable. And, as I'm sure you all know, Emily is one of my most favorite artists ever! I have several of her prints, lots of tiny books, buttons, pins, lockets and a couple of her original paintings and now I have this!!!
I think my favorite character is "Ollie" - the little onion-headed boy ~ so cute!
Off to read! Happy Saturday everybody!!
