Longleaf Stories

full circle in the hundred acre wood

Lemon Tree is an itty bitty store tucked into a corner of the Balmichael Visitor’s Center on the String Road between Machrie and Broddick on the Isle of Arran, Scotland. It is stuffed to the gills with unique toys, bodacious parasols, cuckoo clocks with an attitude, handmade dolls — and purses. Handbags made for children that make everyone smile. When we were on Arran in September, I bought several for some of my favorite little girls. One of them looks like a sheep (or maybe the horse in Toy Story). It has wobbly feet and brings instant smiles. Another has the face of a little blond-haired girl with corn cob curls and it is bursting with personality.

But I saved the best one for myself. Well, that is, I bought it for someone else. But I think I’ll keep it for awhile because I like it so much. A long while.
