There are no Rules

This week´s Sunday Postcard Art challenge theme is "Children´s books". Well, what my mom read to me when I was too little to read myself was "Pippi Longstocking", and she usually fell asleep while reading, whereas I lay in my bed waiting for her to read on ...  That story by Astrid Lindgren was first published in 1944, and for my card I played with the idea what may have happened to a well-behaved girl after having read this book. Just have a look at Wikipedia and you´ll find out that Pippi is called the first punk girl! Little did I know in the late 60s ...

Great card Marion and I loved your story. This was another favourite book for me growing up too. :)

Als ich deine Pippi hier im Blog gesehen hatte, wollte ich eigentlich sofort einen Kommentar schreiben, weil diese freche Göre für mich als Kind auch so wichtig war.
Pippi hat mir klar gemacht, dass ich eigentlich doch ganz normal war...

So habe ich mich total über diese schöne Karte zum Geburtstag gefreut - du musst es geahnt haben!
Danke Marion - bis zum Mekka
