Wednesday's Cornerview: Collections

Due to the fact that we have been a rather mobile family  (our oldest has moved six times in his six short years of life), we have not had the chance to really collect much (sadly) but our migratory days should be behind us and it is nice to start collecting bits and bobs.  
This little trio was a gift from grandma and are used by the children for personal maple syrup pouring convenience. Handy too because we can be sure they each only consume about a tablespoon or two  at a go... (its the real deal here and I view it like gold)
As my sister over at Ten Finger workshop knows.. takes a whole lot a trees to make just a pint of the magic stuff!
Thank you Joyce for hosting Cornerview while Jane has been away.  For more cornerviews check here

"What doin?"

Funny how you can go about your day attempting to be oh so serious and adult, like say trying to take a nice close up shot of a fresh bunch of local garlic (because you recently learned garlic originated from Afghanistan and got a little inspired to buy and make something with green garlic),
when you spot at the last second
 a little face, fingertips and curious eyes.
"What do-in mama?!"
Little D is as mischievous as ever,  now days on tip toe she can peer over the table, reach the computer mouse from standing by my side at the desk, and is very agile at dragging chairs round the kicthen to have a closer look at any kind of cooking or sewing I am up to. Today she was pretending to 'go fishing' through the bars of the staircase with a wooden yoyo, swinging it with such force that she nearly knocked out her big sister. 
May your week be starting off with pleasant surprises. 
(Mine is starting of with lots of sneezes and a bit of a cold, there has been a mighty wind blowing round the island lately perhaps there is some connection).
