I picked up an old favorite of mine, The Wizard of Oz in a portable paperback to tote around with me as well.

Wonderful Wizard of Chinese Dress, indeed. What a lovely post.

I'm absolutely loving the pinecone babies. When I was little we used to make pinecone cows by inserting sticks into the cone's scales to make them stand up.
