Full of gentle mischief..

 

What a treat! Calling in to drop something off at the State Library of WA yesterday I was delighted to see that there is an exhibition of May Gibbs wonderful illustrations. Inspired by walking in the bush south of Perth when she was a child and later from bush walks in the Blue Mountains the enchanting illustrations of her renowned Gumnut Babies are too adorable not to embiggen and enjoy full size. I remember reading Snugglepot and Cuddlepie to my children, did anyone else? One of Australia's foremost children's authors and illustrators you can read a short story of her life here. Happy Wednesday, take care and stay safe..

  13. A GREAT SPELL CASTER (DR. EMU) THAT HELP ME BRING BACK MY EX GIRLFRIEND.
    Am so happy to testify about a great spell caster that helped me when all hope was lost for me to unite with my ex-girlfriend that I love so much. I had a girlfriend that love me so much but something terrible happen to our relationship one afternoon when her friend that was always trying to get to me was trying to force me to make love to her just because she was been jealous of her friend that i was dating and on the scene my girlfriend just walk in and she thought we had something special doing together, i tried to explain things to her that her friend always do this whenever she is not with me and i always refuse her but i never told her because i did not want the both of them to be enemies to each other but she never believed me. She broke up with me and I tried times without numbers to make her believe me but she never believed me until one day i heard about the DR. EMU and I emailed him and he replied to me so kindly and helped me get back my lovely relationship that was already gone for two months.
