I finally saw Moonrise Kingdom this weekend. I loved the story, the characters and, of course, the visual styling. I especially enjoyed all of the paraphernalia that the two protagonists carried along on their adventure, including the binoculars held around Suzy’s neck by a leather strap with beads spelling her name. On Sunday afternoon, I decided to buy some of the same alphabet beads to make a similarly styled necklace with Jenna.
Jenna can’t quite spell anything other than her name, but she loved playing with the letters and trying to spell various words.
Once she finished her ‘Jenna’ necklace, she wanted to make another. When I asked her what she wanted it to say, she said “wash hands.” Not sure where that came from, but I appreciate her sporting such a positive public service announcement.
And, of course, I had to make one for myself.
