Bunnies, Frogs and Life’s Little Nudges

Regular readers might have noticed that I have had a bit of a ‘blogging lull’ in recent weeks.  It goes like that, doesn’t it.

What I love about life is the way in which it give you a nudge to get back to things/start new things every now and then.

I was walking past this lovely shop a couple of days ago on my way home.

On closer inspection, I found these darling origami bunnies in their Easter window display.

 

 

What did they say to me? ‘Hey, how come you have not been blogging?’.  Amazing – who would have thought that paper bunnies could speak!

Well, it worked.  I was reminded of my intention to follow up my last origami post with a picture of Hub’s favourite origami make.  His pièce de résistance, if you will.  I give you ‘Bookcase with Books’:

Isn’t it great.  I added the pen so you can see how tiny and precise it is.

“A bookshelf is as particular to its owner as are his or her clothes; a personality is stamped on a library just as a shoe is shaped by the foot.”
― Alan Bennett, The Library Book

This is Hub all over – a true engineer of life.  You might remember that he once wrote a guest post for this blog, almost exactly a year ago in fact, about his intention to build a model railway.  This project is going from strength to strength and you can check out his progress on his YouTube channel if you are interested to see more.  Below is his latest video.  Who knew that Frog Juicers were a thing!

And in the meantime, I am please to be ‘back on track’ (groan!) with my blogging adventure.  Thank you for joining me along the way. 🙂

  2. You mentioned the bookshelf in the comments of your last post and now here it is! Perfection indeed! Life does take-over sometimes (and so it ought!) so we all understand why things went quiet on the Liz front. I am glad you are back and also that you aren’t unwell. I am pleased to see the model railway is developing well.

    1. Thank you Clare – I meant to mention our exchange in the post, as it was this that inspired me to ask Steve to make another bookcase. So sorry not to have given you due credit! But it’s good to be back 🙂

      1. Absolutely no need to apologise or credit me – that was not my intention when I mentioned it 🙂

  3. I did wonder what had happened to you! It’s so nice to have you back, even though I understand the ebbs and flows of blogging. Your husband’s tiny bookcase is superb–such precision! I expect to be writing about some my husband’s work soon, too!
