  1. There is actually a puppet theatre in town, though it’s more widely used these day. And yes, the feature photo and squared one are quite big – toddler size. The others are more -er – puppet sized. I think puppets were quite a big thing there in the past.

  2. Love the Donna, and do I see a Mother Superior there? Some of them I wouldn’t want to meet on a dark night! 🙂 🙂 Fab subject, Margaret! Happy Saturday with good news to come 🙂 🙂

    1. Who knows what names they answer to? But they’re fun, aren’t they? Barcelona news is mixed. New boiler required!. What a moment to choose!

  3. I dislike puppets almost as much as I dislike clowns. There was a puppet shop in Wakefield of all places and I used to avert my eyes when walking past the window displays. I also hated Punch and Judy as a child.

    1. I wasn’t a Punch and Judy fan either. When did you live in Wakefield? I did too, in about 1973 – 75, in St. John’s. I can take or leave the average puppet, but I do like Indonesian shadow puppets.

      1. St John’s is a nice area. Posh. I was actually born in Wakefield then we moved around a bit and returned when I was 10. I started my wanderings in 1971 after leaving school and left for good in 1973, so we just missed each other!

  4. Loved these! When I lived in Prague I became friends with a woman that made clothing for marionettes. Hers was a shop of unique puppet creations. Your post brought me back there!

  5. Several of them remind me of someone – Zoe Wanamaker, a bride from Married at First Sight Australia, my sweetheart when he’s trying to look innocent and me when I am staying up to Skype him before bed when it’s only 6 o’clock for him, but midnight for me. I’ll leave you to guess which ones!

  6. I love puppets and used to really enjoy the summer event in Mirepoix. Our oldest though (44) is really scared of them. This is the person who will happily cycle down an alp at 56mph!

    1. A lot of people seem to find puppets threatening, and I think I understand that, though I don’t share it. I wonder if the Mirepoix event will take place this year?
