"Who is it who keeps taking my little things?"

Do you know that quote from The Borrowers by Mary Norton? It's one of my all time favorites. I collect and also teach children's literature. I also read it a lot.

Pyewacket was up in the hutch again last night. The tomato teapot lid was on the carpet and the teapot itself was hidden behind the Lilliput Lane cottage. For the first time, all of the other teapots were knocked over. They were all pushed into the groove where the plates stand up. She normally just plays tea parties with one of the lids.



I'm actually glad that someone is enjoying playing with the miniature teapots.
No one has ever played with them before now.

Another lovely scrapbook page that really set off the subject's beauty. Those miniature teapots are very cute. Reminds me of some miniature teapots that were on display in Hoi-An, a Vietnamese town.
