I've not been in evidence much lately - but I have been enjoying your "sassy style", as usual. Your blog is always a treat.

What charm and pure magic! Your drawings and frames are breath taking!

So much fun!

That hat is so lovely, and the fact that its a box is such a darling surprise!


Thanks for stopping by my little soiree. I enjoyed visiting you too - that drawing gorgeous. Funny that I, too, had a long break from drawing (about 25 years!), and have recently rediscovered it. I found that long break gave me some maturity in my drawings, and they are so much better than I would have thought!

Do come back, I post pictures of my lovelies regularly.


Wasn't this Vanessa Party FUN?

Miss Maddie's

I adore the photo album frame and the entire post is full of magic and make believe. That's it, you have the wonderful gift of making us believe that we are there and part of the magic.
That's why we keep coming to visit.We can lust over your creations, indulge in a visit with Johnny and know we share a common thread of friendship.It is the last part that I treasure most.
Enjoy your Sunday.Thanks for the little check-in.
XO Susan

Yep you just did it again! Those drawings are exquisite, I knew it! There has to be something wrong with the sound of my computer, I would love to hear you sing Valencia, but it doesn't work, or should I sip more of that fairy tea? Love your post and the dresdens tooo (drool, drool). Have a fantastic day, enjoying tea parties of all kind!

Hi Dona,
