Remains of the day.

As I go about the day, I often come across little scenarios that James has created. I love these still life representations of his imagination.  Sometimes they are fairly obvious, sometimes unexpected and sometimes completely baffling, but always a delight. Here are some from today.








 I wonder where he'll go tomorrow?

  1. I love the carrot on the season shelf and the vehicle in the cutlery tray. So perfectly random and a reminder of how similar these little ones are even though never met.

  3. Like Becks & Lynn I like the carrot added to the nativity table. How lovely to have a creative wee one in the house.

  4. ooooh! i LOVE these!

    i'm forever finding similar 'remains' -- it makes cleaning up quite interesting....our houseplants often find themselves wearing miniature plastic sunglasses and you never know where a dinosaur might be lurking...

    love the truck in the cutlery tray!!

  5. The carrot photo is hilarious. I love to see the evidence that my children are using those imaginations! You never know what you'll find.

  6. It seems perfectly rational to have a carrot on the season table. Mary's donkey has to eat something!

  8. It's amazing what things end up where and why. What goes through their mind to place these things in certain places, I think I will miss this when my youngest has grown older, even though it can be frustrating sometimes.

  9. Yes it is delightful and funny just now, but it does get a bit wearing when they are older.
    Claire - Mary's donkey seems a likely explanation, but also we had talked about how we should be adding plants and living things to the table this week, but the snow is too deep and cold - a carrot is a good substitute :)

  10. What a great post! I too find funny things all over. I have two girls... so usually I find amusing collections of things in purses, bags, and baskets. My favorite... although frustrating too... is asking the girls to pack a few toys for a day trip, only to find they've packed one stuffed animal, their play keys, a plastic animal, and a flashlight. I mean, what are you going to do with that? LOL!

  11. Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen sang "Imagination" set to the tune of Pachobel's Canon on one of their children's cd's a long time ago. I wish I could find the words or the song. I can imagine wonderful things, caves in the back yard, boats with wings,. . . laundry basket: racing car . . . and our imaginations will change the world some day. Etc.

  12. Absolutely beautiful. I keep a large tray here for some of our grandchildren when they visit, on which they arrange treasures. I never move anything - for they expect to find it as they left it when they next visit (maybe weeks later) - and the NEVER forget how it should be!

  13. How perfectly wonderful and endearing......my four children are grown up now but I well remember the day I discovered my downstairs toilet filled to the brim with dinky cars..........my three year old later informed me that all his cars were in the carwash......florrie x

  14. Oh yes! I love finding odd things everywhere! It's too funny, always the conversational fodder for dh and I to giggle over, you get glimpses of their unveiling personailites in these little snapshots of what they do, too cute.

  16. That all looks so familiar, although my children have moved beyond that stage. It's great that you cherish your son's creativity, and enjoy these little (re)arrangements. Also, I love your new header!
