15 Dec – Giant Troll

Poppy has various toy trolls. I’m not sure if everybody buys them, they are certainly something I enjoyed as a child. This one came from Shoreditch market. He’s very big and made by cult maker ‘Dam Things – Est 1964‘. He’s a hangover from hippie culture. He has a hair clip holding his hair at the back. I think this must have been placed on him by Poppy.

12 Dec – Rabbit Head

This came from a very expensive t-shirt shop around the back of Carnaby Street. It had very weird bears and rabbits, beautifully made by hand. Cosmo and I selected this one for Poppy in the summer of 2011 during a chemo stay. It’s Very Poppy, but then again all of the bears and creatures in that shop were ‘Very Poppy’.
