Three birds named Bob

Santa (and his little helpers) brought me many funny, happy and wonderful gifts. One of the sweetest (thank you, Elf M!) was a little book for me and my nephew to read together. It's all about happy animals and counting them.

I wasn't familiar with Sandra Boynton or her work earlier but these animals are just the cutest:"...and my piglet, known as Bob, of course."

" There's my rabbit, Bob, and his bunny wife, Bob"

"... and Bob the bird..."

 ...and my latest birdies, named Bob!

Hello Bob!

Nice to meet you, Bob!

Hi sweet Bob!

These three birds named Bob will fly into my shop during today...And you can go and say hi to them here.

Happy Tuesday!

Hello dearest Elf M :)

I am so happy you took your new name in use immediately :) and it was given with much much love as your gift has been much treasured and smiled over these January days! Thank you so much, and thank you for the wonderful comment also!

Oh Mia, I love all your BOB's. And now who is elf M?
Well, anyway, it looks like such a fun book to read with your nephew. I love reading to small children, now my granddaughters correct me if I make a mistake reading. hahaha
Have a lovely day in snowy Finland, soRobin❤ (from snowy Vermont)

Bob was my fathers name, he was Robert really but was always known as Bob! :) So I love the name and how wonderful to have so many animals named Bob including bunnies!!!
I love your new little Bob's too. :)

Dear Vivienne,

Your dear father is the greatest addition to today's Bob's! And I might just chosen the pages to show you and someone else in mind ;) you know, the pigs and bunnies...

Have a wonderful day!


Jane said...

You know me too well Mia...I had a little squeal when I saw the piglet ;0) What a fab book, I really do love childrens' books... I need to wait for grandchildren now I suppose as no little ones left here. My dear son's middle name is Robert and as a little one we called him Bobby or Bob's as a nickname...much to his annoyance I still sometimes use it ;0) Your new Bob's are the sweetest ....I am sure they will fly straight out of your shop. Such cheerful colours too. Happy Tuesday my dear.

Sweetest Jane,

Yet one more precious Bob for today, your "little boy"! I wish there will be many little ones for you to read soon...And you'll be called grandma-Jane!

I said to Vivienne earlier that I chose these pages someone special(s) in mind... And you spotted it right away!

Happy Tuesday!


ANNE said...

Love this book and your pouches, Mia.

I have 2 Uncle Bob's(one on my Mom's side and one on my Dad's side).
It's a classic name here.

A big kiss to L.

Happy new week,

Mia said...

Oh my, two more Bobs for today! Thank you for sharing, dear Anne! This book is the cutest, and I am so happy I now know Sandra and her work! She's pretty big at yours?

Have a great day, and best wishes to all of you!

This book looks like such fun! I love all the Bobs! I enjoy reading to my grandchildren so much, and it's adorable to see how early they have a sense of humour :)
Love your sweet new birdies, so pretty!

Hello Helen,

Reading to and with children is simply the best, and I'm sure they'll continue reading more later in life (fingers crossed). All the Bobs send their love, and we all wish you a happy week!


This time of the year...

Usually around this time, when children go back to school, and you can just about to smell the autumn, I start to dig deeper in my fabric...
