This is what some of our favourite childhood actors look like today.

As evidenced by my love for these dino corn-on-the-cob holders and this redone car, I think it's safe to say I'm officially obsessed with Jurassic Park. Yep.


  1. Welcome back :) Happy Birthday!!! Hope it was fabulous! I just took a mini blogging break myself, it was unexpected but I just didn't really have the time to log on and I didn't let it stress me.
    Thanks for all the fun links! I love fun bookshelves.
    Happy weekend :)
