Crooked!

There was a crooked man and he walked a crooked mile,
He found a crooked sixpence upon a crooked stile.
He bought a crooked cat, which caught a crooked mouse.
And they all lived together in a little crooked house.




This charming little house is not really crooked (it's the camera angle)
and a crooked little man does not really live in it.

It is, however, located in the grounds of my
favorite garden center
and I would be over the moon happy
it I could have it as a part of my fairy garden.

A girl can dream, right?

Oh my, Jill! I love your crooked little house! I would love it in my garden, too! Wouldn't it be a blast to build up one side so it had that illusion of being crooked? Oh, how fun that would be!

Thank you for starting my week with a smile, Jill!
