Thank you all for your kind words about my Bookie. He was a funny little, odd ball and will be missed. I appreciate you sharing your stories with me about your furry loves too. They do find their way deep into our hearts!
Oh a happier, much happier, practically gleeful note, Jenn Hayslip's
event is open for sales!
And oh my gosh, her site is like stepping into a fairytale already. I can't wait to see the actual party! She is known for her attention to detail.
Plus, I might have a slight fondness for fairies.... So this weekend will be right up my ally. Or up my fairy trail. No, that sounds a bit wrong, and maybe even little risque, doesn't it?
Our magical weekend in Asheville, NC will be a grown up fairy tale, far from the Disney princess type of fairies. She is going for romantic and gorgeous.
As a matter of fact, when Jenn was first planning this and invited me to teach a mini class, she sent me a lot of the inspirational links that she was looking at and that is what inspired me to take the fairy pictures of all the little girls in my life.
Which reminds me, I should try to get some more sweet winged, naked baby pictures before my tiniest grandfairy is big enough to crawl away!
Jenn is providing a generous budget for the kits, and I'll be filling them with vintage wallpaper, and pretty ribbons, lace, some millinery, and sparkle. Nothing but the Besties!
I keep looking at the Once Upon a Dream site over and over, its just so well done and so dreamy. I highly recommend a visit there to get lost in the atmosphere and day dream of fairies.
Today in Lawrence, KS, the weather has the promise of Spring. I've got all the doors and windows open, and hope to do a spring cleaning before scooping up my own little fairy, Sugarwings.
I found this cute old book, that I now have listed in the Boutique, and it has some interesting tips in it. But I think it should add "Play make believe with your grand-kids" because I can't think of anything else that keeps me feeling as full of life as that does!
We went to the park yesterday, and pretended that the slides were rainbows that we could ride. We had a treasure hunt using a map that was actually a scrap of some kid's homework blowing across the playground, and the hunt ended with her finding an imaginary crown for Prince Charming buried in the wood chips.
I'll leave you with a few more photos of whats new in the Boutique. I'm still restocking, and there is much more to come!
