29 Faces in September; Bye Baby Bunting

This summer Britain has been festooned with bunting. The Union Jack variety. First because of the Queens jubilee and then the Olympics. Last week I went to look at an exhibition by artist Andrew Miller at Baltic 39 in Newcastle. One room was strung with row after row of bunting presumably questioning the country’s celebratory mood. You can find out more here. I thought it beautiful.


All the while I have had in my head;

Bye Baby Bunting

Daddy’s gone a hunting

Gone to fetch a rabbit skin

To wrap poor Baby Bunting in.

In this case “bunting” means chubby, so here is a roly-poly  baby elf. And he is Number 25 in the 29 Faces challenge.

Five Minute Face; Bloomin’ Bunting

It’s Jubilee Weekend here in old Blighty. Many are excited, not that they are patriotic, but that a four-day break from the daily grind is stretching ahead of them. However, some of us will be working with ne’er a street party in sight.

This little elf is dedicated to all those who will be working over the Jubilee Bank Holiday. Britain Needs You!
