Library Decoration

I recently visited a school library. I loved the decorations the librarian had put up (all from her collection).

Of course I had to take a picture of the stuffed bat.

And the characters from children's books were adorable. Who can resist Clifford?

Every library needs a wise owl.

Don't wink too soon, Gingerbread Man. You always end up being eaten.

I loved the fall decorations.

Especially the turkeys.

The decorations needed just one addition: Giraffe #297. Now, that's better.

Raindrops are beautiful. I love taking pictures of them.

Any raindrops around, Giraffe #296?

Water, Water, Everywhere

I've always loved pictures of a splash of water.

There's something so fascinating about seeing a moment in time stopped in a photograph.

I've taken a couple of shots of rain, trying to get that splash effect. Not quite as amazing as the preceding photos, but fun nonetheless.

Fortunately there are many people who are better at it than I am. Such beautiful pictures.

Giraffe #295, nice reflection in the water. Want to help me make a splash?

Handprint Turkeys

On buddy day we made handprint turkeys. 

My non-feline students made them, too.

I showed my students how to make a baby turkey.

Giraffe #294, do you need someone to trace your hoof so you can make a turkey?
