The Borrowers

My girls loved the book, The Borrowers by Mary Norton.

"Underneath the kitchen floor is the world of the Borrowers-Pod and Homily Clock and their daughter, Arrietty. In their tiny home, matchboxes double as roomy dressers and postage stamps hang on the walls like paintings. Whatever the Clocks need they simply 'borrow' from the 'human beans' who live above them. It's a comfortable life."

We decided as an art project to make our own "little" family. Here's our creations:

Oh, I LOVE it! A perfect borrower family. Maybe they can live in your Secret Garden?!

LOVE this! We have had fairies outside, but not borrowers. Will definitely have to read the book!

These are adorable! Thanks for taking time to e-mail me about AO. The more I learn about it, the more it appeals to me and seems like the answer to my prayers!
