...ho dovuto aprire un nuovo blog.....mi sono ritrovata tra una delle mie cartelle queste 2 foto, ma non ricordo da dove le ho prese...ma sono finte queste tartarughe ?:fingers-crossed:

No non sto scherzando, veramente non so cosa siano, non ho mai visto nulla del genere...forse escono da un cartone animato ?
