Other fun things, some of which are also British:
Cinnamon Morning Buns.
I want to read this book.
I MUST see 'The Crown' when it comes out.
Getting one of these for Julia's birthday coming up soon....
I linked my British Pinterest board to a Facebook group I belonged to, and one lady said, and I QUOTE: "It's one of the best pages I have ever seen on Pinterest." Well, how about that! If you want to see a bunch of Brit stuff I've collected all over the internet, go looky-see.
18 children's books with female characters.
Making this dinner asap.
And making this soup right after that.
The Owl and the Accordion - charming blog!
I have ordered these exact prints and they are GREAT - you can print right off your Instagram if you want! Really fun, nice thick paper, good quality.
Cool Book of the Week: Julia's teacher suggested that she might enjoy reading 'Stone Fox' by John Reynolds Gardiner. She told Julia that it was the kind of book that stays with you for your entire life. As Julia was describing the story to me after reading it, tears were streaming down her face. I had tears in my eyes just listening! I'm going to read it now too. This tale about a young boy desperately trying to save his family home by winning an incredibly competitive dogsled race sounds intensely riveting - the boy is competing against a Native American who has never lost a race. This isn't the type of book I usually feature here (what, no fairies or magic??), but I'm not kidding, I've never seen my daughter have this kind of emotional reaction to a book before. Best for ages 8-10.
