Elves and Toadstools and Such
I found the cute little elf w/toadstool vase at a flea market in Hayward, Wisconsin in Aug. 2001. I took a trip there with my sisters to visit our aunt, uncle, and cousins. We had such a wonderful time, and we want to go back SO badly!! When I saw the little vase, it reminded me of the poem, below, that I remembered from my childhhood- and I decided it needed to come home with me!
I've always loved that little poem. It is from The Golden Treasury of Poetry which has the wonderful Joan Walsh Anglund illustrations. (click on "Illustrators", below, and you will find it in the last post.)I am sorry I don't know how to link to a previous post.
And while I'm on the subject - this little poem from the same book is a particular favorite. Being small in stature myself, it always resonated with me- and I have remembered it all my life. So cute!
