A Poppet Pretending to be an Astronaut

It feels like it's been the year of the Astronaut.

Shall we listen to some Billie while we ponder...

We have followed Col. Chris Hadfield's incredible time on the space station with delight. He has inspired so many children to think big, to be curious about the world they live in and to believe in themselves.
If you don't follow him on Facebook, here is his page...

We had our first visit to the Natural History Museum in NYC this year, in which Poppet discovered the planets. We are still fascinated by the subject, there is just so much to learn!
We are planning trips to various museums in town over the coming summer to extend our learning. (I need to learn about it all too, don't remember being particularly engaged on the subject as a child)

And it was lovely to receive a custom order request for an astronaut. Here is the finished Poppet, doing his best to dress up a la Col. Hadfield. And he was posted to Australia today, on the 44th anniversary of the moon landing.

Everything seems to move in circles...


  1. wow, 44 years since the moon landing. The Man in the Moon really must be lonely ;) - that image is fantastic!

    1. I know Michelle, everyone is so obsessed with Mars these days...
