11:00 PM

This is some sort of miracle, 11:00 PM and I'm still awake. I generally keep early hours, but I had coffee at dinner tonight and what do you know, no yawns!

I was looking at this book I have and I decided I should share some images. One of my best friends is getting little mice tattooed on his arm, and I found some great images for him of mice wearing waistcoats and floating through the air with umbrellas in hand. I think this is the only children's book I've bought at a thrift store and haven't ripped to shreds for some sort of art project... it's just too good! The entire book is filled to the brim with lovely animals and adorable children. I swear, all the kids are so well dressed!

Like this little guy, and I love the way he's pointing at the turtle!

... more hair motivation. And that dress!

Does anyone remember what cartoon these characters are from? I used to watch it when I was little and I even had this little funny video game too. The pig holding the balloons looks the most familiar!

Richard Scarry's Busytown. I'm actually getting the little worm in the apple-mobile tattooed on me at some point.
