UFO no more

I finally finished the Hitchhiker.  It turned out really nicely.  Unfortunately it has been so dark and dreary I cannot seem to turn out a good photo of it in natural light.  It is raining right now so the outdoor photo session will have to wait.

I found this gem at a local thrift shop.  When I was a little girl we had this tray at home.  I looked for it when we cleaned out the house, but never found it, so this was quite a find.  I would fill my favorite mug with milk grab a wax-paper wrapped package of graham crackers, put them on the tray and take them into the living room so I could sit on the floor and watch Captain Kangaroo in the morning.  I still love clothes with pockets, overalls, oatmeal boxes (the Captain could make lots of great things with oatmeal and shoe boxes), and graham crackers and milk.

This cheery face always made me smile!

Looking at the photo makes me want some graham crackers and milk, and craft something out of construction paper and an oatmeal box...
