Next up on this particular Saturday: a trip to Glen Echo, a real, old-fashioned amusement park, for a birthday party and last-chance carousel ride. Another summer farewell, sweetened now by beckoning leaf piles and copious Halloween planning. Happy Saturday, all! Happy Birthday, sweet Leo!
Imagine our delight with the newly created window we discovered in our Georgetown shop. Here's what inspired Sara (to the extent we can deconstruct it):
A wonderful hand-carved "kuda" rocking horse that arrived last week. Several newly-arrived books, Goddesses: A World of Myth & Magic, Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs, and How to be An Explorer of the World. And the evocative colors in the shops: emerald and forest greens, burgundies and royal blues, golden yellow.
In Barefoot Books' "Goddesses," you'll be wooed by strong women figures from cultures and countries both near and far. The beautiful treasury offers entries on over a hundred goddesses, including details about the origins of each, as well as a description of her powers and anecdotes and stories that shed light on her nature.
