Roald Dahl Day Blog Hop


THIS POST CONTAINS AFFILIATE LINKS

Today, I am participating in the Bento Bloggers and Friends Roald Dahl Day Blog Hop!

While I love all of his books, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory continues to be one of my favorites.  I remember being a child and dreaming about getting one of those golden tickets.  Of course, then I saw the movie and was utterly freaked out by those Oompa-Loompas!!  

When my lovely group of bento friends decided to do a Roald Dahl Day Blog Hop, I knew I wanted to pay tribute to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.  I decided to make one of those Oompa-Loompas, and I hope mine is much cuter and less freaky than the ones in the movie!
