juj, did you ever think you'd see your Moley on the roof of my shed?

Seriously. How cute? Here's Suzanne's contribution to Juj's Moley.

This drawing makes me smile every time I look at it. Basically, it makes me happy. The funny thing is when I used to spend my summers fruit picking I would have two tents - one to sleep in the other as a store. At one point a frog made a home in the store tent. I let him stay there (I wasn't going to move him after all), so we had a tent each. Therefore, the answer to the question is (kind of )yes!

It's so cool to see artwork from a different 'artist' every time you get a new Moley. You almost forget that. It's like an extra little surprise. Juj your work is so clean, it's an absolute pleasure to have your Moley in my possession. And good to see the turtle in the flesh. I feel like I know him so well already. I have an idea where I'm going with this one, but I really must put the finishing touches to Miguel's first. I will, I WILL, put that in the post to France this week.

Suzanne, this is so clever! I never thought you could use mister Frog like this! I like her rosy cheeks :-)

Suzanne! THANK YOU! This is fabulous. I love how you pulled some of the pink from the beginning into it, and the way you incorporated the frog is brilliant, but that little campfire - OH! You've no idea how home sick (in a good way) that makes this grounded mountain goat. I LOVE IT.

oh crap! Andrea, I got so excited I forgot to mention how much I love all the Flickr pics. You should be the official photographer for all the moleys. ; )

Yeah, Juj you are right about the pink. I think you notice it even more when you see the whole thing. It's what struck me first off. Along with the cuteness of this piece, of course.

The photographing of these Moleys gets more difficult the more they are filled. Unfortunately the lighting wasn't great, which is why it ended up on the roof of my shed. My excuse anyway.

Seeing it now can make the bed seem obvious, but I've never though you could continue this way. I love it all! And Juj, I know what you mean, it's been a loooooong time since I don't sleep this way.
I agree, Andrea's photos are fantastic, (even without a perfect light).
