An invitation...

...to the annual Mad Tea Party Hosted by Vanessa Valencia of A Fanciful Twist!



Oh I am so EXCITED!!! My girls and I participated last year (you may click here to see our party post last year) and we had SO MUCH FUN!!!

So this year for my 34th birthday we all decided to have a REAL Mad Tea Party with all of my favorite people. SO you can imagine my delight when Miss V posted that her party is just a mere 5 days from my birthday!!! PERFECT TIMING....Now I have every excuse to go ALL OUT on this one....ALL OUT.....well as much as my budget and husband will allow....LOL

SO please do sign up and join me for tea, will you? won't you???

The misunderstood Marie

What is it about Marie Antoinette that fascinates me so?



A few years ago I knew virtually nothing about her. I knew she had style. But it would be my vast internet searches and movie watching that would make me fall deeply in admiring love with Marie. From the many articles I have read and watching the movie Marie Antoinette starring Kirsten Dunst, I think I've finally got a sense of why she fascinates me....


She was regal, powerful, born into luxury. She set the trends and was the object of gossip and jealousy. I feel though she was by all means "spoiled" she also was misguided by mentors of sorts that didnt have her best interests as their priority....of which I totally relate to. Well that is what I get from her story anyway.... and unlike Marie, I won't pay with my head, I have the chance to mourn my former mentor and become my own....


I love Marie. She was judged harshly by those she sought love and favor from and paid with her life. Too young and too immature to know how to take control...a beautiful tragedy....but we are all still infatuated with her to this day. May we all take a cue from Marie and learn to keep our heads....;-)

Finished Oil....

Well at least I think she is finished....

Luckily, Oil take a while to dry. I shall place her in my bedroom and ponder on what else needs to have with her, if anything.

I believe the name of this will be "Fancy meeting you here, Mr. Wolf"....
Yes that is what it is saying to me.

She was not unaware. She is quite prepared. She was out and happened to run into the "Big Bad one" himself...Yes, Fancy that indeed....;-)


Oh I'm in LOVE....

BTW its SNOWING here today....not sticking and more like a slushy snow but I can't believe it! Its the 1st of May, My peas are sprouted and my Dahlias and Zinnias, we turned off the heat and switched on the air conditioner and today of ALL days this white, cold yucky stuff is falling from the sky??? What the heck??
