Iddy has been researching Europe during March and decided to match up the items in our Continent box.
She was quite stumped over the coins which led to a discussion of the names countries call themselves versus what we call them in English.
We alas have never been to Europe but have quite a collection of things from Grammy and Grampy's trips.
The little Polish pottery cross is my favorite, dd likes the rose rosary beads from Italy.
This next one is a line from a poem titled "Herald"
by Maureen Cannon
Other than borrowing from other blogs and the books stacked up around the house my favorite place to find chalkboard copy work is
from the Ladybug and Spider Magazines we buy old copies from our library but you can subscribe here http://www.cricketmag.com/home.asp
We have made many of new "Poet Friends" on account of these magazines.
