Booksy - In Like a Lion, Out Like a Lamb

The weather this season has be unusually nice (seriously, this was probably the easiest winter I've seen, and I live in Nebraska which is notorious for having some nasty winters), so I don't think we've really experienced the usual "in like a lion, out like a lamb" phenomenon.

But that doesn't mean we can't celebrate it, Booksy-style! :)

When talking about lions in literature, you can't avoid the wonderfully lovable character of The Cowardly Lion from The Wizard of Oz. I think he is perfectly captured in this embroidered wall art.

Another famous lion in literature is the mighty Aslan, one of the central figures in The Chronicles of Narnia series. I love this deliciously-scented Chocolate Milk soap, and think that this abstract art depiction of Aslan is truly breathtaking!

Finally, there's been a more recent addition to the lion scene, indirectly - a lion is the mascot for Gryffindor in Harry Potter. And though she wasn't a true Gryffindor, Luna Lovegood is famous for wearing an incredible Lion hat, which I think might look similar to this fantastic crocheted hat or perhaps the depiction in this unique watercolor. I'm also pretty sure that she would have approved of this amazing lion scarf!

Finding lambs in literature proves to be a bit more tricky. We can start with the perennial favorite, Mary had a little lamb, with these incredible lasercut acrylic rings. Her lamb might have looked something like this soft plush toy.

There was also a children's book about Woolly the Lamb, and this cute pillow is just as snuggley!

Finally, who could forget the memorable line in Twilight about the lion and the lamb? I love this vinyl wall quote.
