Hi Jane
I'm a newby to your blog... But love it.
My son, now 33, had a school book day 25 years ago and I remember he went as The Tin Man from Wizard Of Oz - lots of tin foil, an oil can, and silver sprayed welling tons... Gosh how the time flies by.

How fun for him to have dress up day at school. My kids used to love those dress up days too when they were growing up. To this day, they still love to dress up for Halloween.
