Oh Poor, poor Mr. Peabody. I am completely smitten with this guy. Sorry honey but this guy won't yack back! LOL

I feel very fortunate to have a Angel whisper into my ear every once in awhile. The wind beneath my wings spoke to me just 2 nights ago with this little creation. She told me I must HURRY and work harder then I have in awhile. Well I listened of course. But who wouldn't?

This is Beau. He is dressed in his finest to try and impress the ladies with his charms. I don't think he will have too many problems.
He is short and stocky but hey that is fine too. Just a little easier to hug to him. LOL He measures 16 inches tall.

At the moment I am torn as to what site to place this charming fellow but I am sure that he will tell me soon.

Now for a bit of fun. Can you guess what Childrens book inspired this piece? I don't know of a single person that hasn't read at least one of this Authors books.
The FIRST person to guess correctly wins a PRIZE!

Have a wonderful evening now back to work for me. I have a new pattern or two coming out.

Ohhh so sweet. Children's book? I am clueless. The only ghost I know is Casper! lol

Looks like something that belongs in a Dr. Suess book. Very cute! I love him!

Phillane E'lee said...

Thank you Jenny. The book isn't about a ghost. Keep guessing.

Thank you Gina. That is very sweet of you.
Have a wonderful weekend.

Phillane E'lee said...

Thank you Cathy!
Ah can't you guess a wee bit. You have kids.

Phillane E'lee said...

Hello Linda,
Nope I am sorry you are going in the wrong direction. It is NOT a Halloween book.
Now think KIDS classics. Nope not Casper either.

Phillane E'lee said...

You are SOOO close. Look at your last line... Along those lines.

Phillane E'lee said...

Thank you Sonia,
eyes are the first thing I look at as well.

Kathy and Carrie said...

Well I'm not sure what book inspired you, but I'm so glad he decided to come to you and ask to be made....he's absolutely great!

Phillane E'lee said...

Thank you Kathy!
How very sweet of you to say.

The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy and Other Stories

Jenny Carter said...

The Grinch Stole Christmas

Meadowbrook Cabin Primitives said...

okay, Detective Greene , here... trying to crack open this case or book as it may be..

The Legend of Sleepy Hollow by Washington Irving.. ??? since Tim Burton had a movie called sleepy hollow.

It wouldn't be from the Nancy Drew books would it ?

Wuthering Heights by emily Bronte

Well, I am still digging around if one of those aren't it..


Meadowbrook Cabin Primitives said...

okay, Pea..

A classic children's story book author would have to be Robert Louis Stevenson

Treasure Island
Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
The Body Snatchers
A Lowden Sabbath Moon
Weir of Hermiston

This is the only author I am about sure of ... am I right...


Phillane E'lee said...

Blogger Phillane E'lee said...

Okay girls, I will give you a hint.
The author initials are D.S. and I know you know "WHO" he is.
Now for the book, it isn't the most read book but still his and a classic. Don't think there is a movie but I don't watch a lot of kids stuff with no young ones around. LOL
Good luck

Meadowbrook Cabin Primitives said...

Dearest Pea..

Well, you will have to admit and give me credit for searching and searching and trying to come up with some dog gone great answers.. Robert Louis Stevenson was a very good guess.. especially since in Treasure Island there is a ghost of a pirate and ghosts in other books he has written.

So without further ado, I would like to present my last and final answer to this mind boggling question.. , cause I am about burnt out .. LOL..

The answer is...

Dugald Steer ~ The Ologies Series
Candlewick and all that

Because me and the internet and Mr. Google and whoever else.. this is all we could come up with ..with the initials D.S.


Meadowbrook Cabin Primitives said...

and for one last chance and very final answer if it isn't
Dugald Steer

is after searching a tad more..

since it isn't dr. seuss as someone guessed already ..

Dorothy Sayers ~ The Nine Tailors
J.D. Salinger

Cause there isn't any more authors that I know of or Mr.Google knows of with the initials D.S. for a children's book author.

Phillane E'lee said...

Okay girls, I am a block head. I totally missed that Jenny said The Grinch who stole Christmas. Dr. Suess is correct as well. So Jenny said the title and Author first. So Jenny I will send you a little goodie!
