A friend of mine in the UK is a nanny for a lovely little tyke who just turned two in December. It was also her birthday that month. I was a little slow on the uptake, sadly, but finally got a gift off to her before the New Year. I also included a little something for her chargee.
One of my favorite stores is a place here in town called Pulp. It's down on 14th and S Streets NW next to Home Rule and Garden District. Pulp has a delightful children's section and I found a lovely gameboard-paper book for the little 'un that featured the art of Henri Rousseau. My friend is a huge fan of art and often takes her guy to the museums in her city.
Last Friday, the above postcard arrived from the two-year old. It features Rousseau's painting Tiger in a Tropical Storm (Surprised!) which they had just seen and which also featured in the aforementioned book I sent.
Thanks, Aitch and Emm, for the lovely postcard and note!
