This is Angel Cake and her pet skunk, Souffle. Whoever came up with this combo, well, I leave it to you to finish that! Angel Cake was originally released in 1981 by Kenner for the 3rd issue of Strawberry Shortcake dolls and liked to eat sweets but her policy was “If you don’t think about it, the calories don’t count.” Maybe I’ll try that….

The Pleasant Land of Counterpane

“When I was sick and lay a-bed,
I had two pillows at my head,
And all my toys beside me lay,
To keep me happy all the day. ”

The Land of Counterpane by Robert Louis Stevenson (author of Treasure Island) was one of my favourite poems as a kid and I had ample time to memorise it- plenty of sick days from school and church and girl scouts. And like the lad laid up in the poem with all his playthings, I laid up in my room with my books and my little ponies and strawberry shortcake dolls and any number of little figures I fell asleep beside and woke up to scattered about as if they’d been going on their own adventures beside the sleeping giant amongst them.

Today as I was sick and lay-a-bed I got out the play doh and made some SilverHawks which I am quite sure I will be sleeping on playdoh crumbs for weeks now. I am quite convinced in centuries to come archaeologists will unearth whole cities made of compacted play doh carpet crumbs with the odd Lego window here and there….

At any rate I only got a little play in before bed. My nose is too stuffed to enjoy that new playdoh fresh from the can but the furry roommates of mine always know when I’m ill and make truces amongst themselves to both come around and be amiable regardless of each other and to stay out of my stuff. So I felt obliged to cut this short a bit.

Orry and Haley decided to share the bed, just not too close.

It’s rather crowded in this falcon- wait, you’ve got wings how about you shove off!

I had a bit of trouble getting them out – notice I bungled up Quicksilvers feet but who needs feet if you can fly? Now back into the cans- the most satisfying part of Play- Doh- the SQUISH!!

The Land of Counterpane by Robert Louis Stevenson

When I was sick and lay a-bed,
I had two pillows at my head,
And all my toys beside me lay,
To keep me happy all the day.

And sometimes for an hour or so
I watched my leaden soldiers go,
With different uniforms and drills,
Among the bed-clothes, through the hills;

And sometimes sent my ships in fleets
All up and down among the sheets;
Or brought my trees and houses out,
And planted cities all about.

I was the giant great and still
That sits upon the pillow-hill,
And sees before him, dale and plain,
The pleasant land of counterpane.
