I shared a few Kiddie Kut books back in December 2011, and didn’t expect to be revisiting them anytime quickly, but that was earlier than I discovered this Lucie Attwell Kiddy’s Cutlery set. PS: I can’t wish for higher days, or lovelier weather; so beautiful with chilly mornings and delicate sunshine all through the day; with nippy nights closing up as early as 5:30pm. By four, sunshine starts turning into a misty fairydust of a light-weight; like a feathered imaginative and prescient of some kinds, the ambiance gets imbued with itty bitty creatures that seems to glow and dance within the mellow afternoon gentle.

Mary Cook died in 1932. Quickly after, the little constructing had a minor place within the history of artwork when the Uptown Art Gallery was based mostly here, and several other up and coming artists exhibited their early works here, including Mark Rothko.
