this moment A Friday tradition (not unlike Friday-night-dessert-night!) inspired by Soulemama. One photo from the week, no words, something you want to hang onto. xxx 24 Comments on “this moment” Astounded IWM August 27, 2010 at 9:07 pm Are you kidding with that costume? Please tell me you didn’t actually make it yourself! P-H-E-N-O-M-E-N-A-L! Reply innerpickle August 27, 2010 at 9:11 pm Aw thanks! Actually it’s not as fancy as you’d think: I found a hairy old brown coat for $1 at the op shop and sewed the purple prickles and a tail on. And laminated a mask. Which you sent me a link for (thank you.) He wore it all day and out for dinner tonight. Reply Monkednfifed.blogspot.com August 27, 2010 at 9:17 pm Looks so fun! This photo has me thinking of costumes now… Hummm 🙂 Here is my moment… http://monkednfifed.blogspot.com/2010/08/photo-shoot.html Happy weekend! alison Reply Ann August 27, 2010 at 9:18 pm Love it Reply Leanne August 27, 2010 at 9:42 pm LOVE the costume – what a great job you did on it!! And I’m loving that he wore it out to dinner – very cute. Did he get many comments? *S* My moment is at http://www.lulusmama.typepad.com – it’s nothing that special, just the sun shining in my kitchen window; what can I say? I can’t wait till Spring! xx Reply Nicole August 27, 2010 at 9:51 pm What an amazing Gruffalo costume. My 3 year old daughter is obsessed but luckily not wise enough to make requests like that. Thankfully since I’m an awful sewer! Reply Luisa August 27, 2010 at 9:53 pm hahaha gardening in costume. Makes me smile. Reply Joy August 27, 2010 at 10:01 pm *Love* to watch those little ones in imagination land….so much fun and inspires me to just let go, too! Lovely photo… My moment~ http://www.vimandvigor.typepad.com My daughter captures a beauty Reply allison August 27, 2010 at 10:22 pm oh wow! a monster in the garden is definitely a moment to remember! Reply Jackie@Lilolu August 27, 2010 at 10:33 pm Fun. Will he be using this costume for Halloween? My children are starting to think about it already.

Reply kellyi August 28, 2010 at 6:08 am This is so lovely – and I know you were going for Gruffalo but there is also some thing very “Where the wild things are” about this. Awesome. You were meant to find that coat and give it new life. Reply aleksandra August 28, 2010 at 11:21 am wow, look at your garden, it is beautiful http://lemonsandskeletons.blogspot.com/ Reply Kelly August 28, 2010 at 11:44 am I love this picture, that costume is amazing and the garden is beautiful Reply Frockfarie.blogspot.com August 28, 2010 at 11:44 am Great costume. Our school is having dress-up day next week (for book week). Last year my daughter went as Alice in Wonderland now all the girls in her class seem to be obsessed with Harry Potter. So she is going as Harry this year. What a difference a year makes! Reply Sew Many Mamas August 29, 2010 at 1:19 am What a fun costume! And yea for playing in a costume all dat! Reply SB August 29, 2010 at 9:41 am Don’t believe the modest Innerpickle lady, the costume really is as good as it looks! Not slap dash, whatever she protests, and truly inspired. All the dinner companions were EXTREMELY impressed. Fi, Doug thought it might be good if you held onto the costume so Jimmy could wear it to our Book Week next year (he has, quite rightly, no faith in my ability to come up with something like good). Sounds like a fine plan to me 🙂 Reply Sue August 31, 2010 at 3:24 am Fi, my keyboard was not working the other day, and I typed merrily away for a while, looking at my hands, before I realised it. I think the gist of it was, “wow, those are some purple prickles all over that back!” Astounding. You’re a love, and he’s a lucky little gruffalo.
