Ever had one of those moments when you find yourself saying:

Awww, that’s really sweet!

This afternoon I had such a moment. At the behest of Bedford Avenue of all places.

I found this little critter outside of Spoonbill & Sugartown Booksellers.

Noticing he (?) was affixed with Velcro, I grabbed him. He now resides at Chez Shitty in beautiful Greenpoint, Brooklyn.

Awww, that’s really sweet!

My curiousity aroused, I checked out the url inscribed on the back without delay. My find would appear to be part of a greater project by an artist in Great Britain. He (?) leaves these diminutive paintings— “Hiders” as he calls them— for people to find.

Thank you, Tarpitter critter-maker! Your serendipitous gift made my day. You can rest assured this little guy has found a very good home…

…on my desk next to the Mister’s vitamin supplements!
