Haycorns

When I read the theme for this week's tag, all I could think of was the story of when Tigger arrives in the Hundred Acre Wood. He turns up outside Pooh's house, and needs some breakfast. He confidently asserts that Tiggers like everything, but it soon transpires that Tiggers, though willing to try everything, don't actually like everything!
After trying honey at Pooh's (which he didn't like, much to Pooh's relief!) it was off to Piglet's to try some acorns (haycorns), which he doesn't like either! This was the inspiration for my tag. I don't really like to copy other people's drawings, but I didn't feel I could compete with either Shepherd's lovely drawings or the Disney versions, so I've gone Disney, and drawn an unhappy Tigger, not liking haycorns, and a very happy Piglet, who does.

I used Sharpie markers and other felt tip pens, and used a nice acorn green ribbon to make this simple double tag.
In case you're wondering what Tiggers do like, it turns out that they like Extract of Malt, also known as Roo's strengthening medicine.(Although, as Piglet says 'he's been strengthened enough!')

Finally, apologies for not commenting on all the amazing clock tags last week. I've started working full time for the first time in 5 years, and it's taking a bit of getting used to!

  10. Sweet! My girls used to love Winnie the Pooh, so I have fond memories of reading from a book that had the entire collection of stories, as well as watching the Disney movie with them. Blessings!
