Not Icarus V

A few things lying around the house.

Þóra has suggested that Min and Raphus will have to find another way to fly.  Determined to take to the air with the Dodo somehow or other, Min rustles up a few household odds and ends – a bungy cord, a giant elastic band, a green string net bag and a big red balloon…


Adjusting the tension.

The ropes need to be balanced just right….



  Min and Raphus are ready……..   5-4-3-2-1 Liftoff!



Raphus squawks, Min grins and both their spirits’ rise as the Balloon gains altitude.


Hold on!

Min hangs on tightly to Raphus’s foot.


Up Up and Away!

 Min and Raphus join the birds of the air!


Looking wa-a-y down.

 Airborne at last.

  1. Quimper Hittys are REALLY alot of fun to read about. The mistress of them is so full of adventure, lore, history, nature, creativity….thanks so much for sharing all of that with us out here in e-land. The flying advenure of “Icarus” has been a fun story to follow.

  2. The picture of Raphus in his balloon rigging may well be one of the cutest things I have ever seen. Min is brilliant to have come up with it! HOORAY!!! I am so happy for them both! Thank you for sharing their adventures. This is so cute! – Miri

  3. There is never a dull moment around here! The dolls have lots of fun! I enjoyed looking at the meanderings of Miranda too, that was quite the trek home from the store!
