Vivi Cupcake Cookie Monster!

Do you believe the greedy expression?  That there, is my evil twin, Vivi Cookie Monster.  She won't take her paws off that cupcake cookie (which she received from Rusty Bear).
She will not share a morsel, not even with me! 

{In a blink of an eye, Vivi Cookie Monster gobbles her cookie as the word "okay!" is barely uttered. The cookie crumbles and vanishes. Gone.}

It's Secret! One Hint, One Guess! Can You Guess?


Hi friends!

Are you up for some fun with me? I'd love to show you something on the Dog Days of August, which is coming up next week! 

For now, it's been kept a little secret. Not many eyes have seen it or know it exists, so you'll have to make a guess in order to see it on August 1st.  Just follow your instinct...

here's the hint: to see it you have to turn pages

Can you guess what it is?  I hope so!  It shouldn't be too hard.

stay tuned...


PS:  leave your guess in the comments, and you'll receive a private invitation on August 1st!

Live Laugh Love Everyday


Oh, these sweet delicate Canterbury Bellflowers looked just so pretty yesterday afternoon in their vase by my bedside (of which I so generously share with mum).   I just had to show them to you while they're alive and thriving...  inspiring and smile-making!  I though you might also enjoy the bedside photo too.  Have a beautiful summer day!


Texture Tuesday's Dream Edition


Happy Texture Tuesday with the use of Kim Klassen's latest new texture called "Dream."  I think some dolls speak and listen, like this ballerina doll.

Canterbury Bells


July 25th ~ Happy Sixth Birthday Jasmine!   


Some background on Canterbury Bells: Referred to as the bellflower for its bell-like shape, this flower is known by many names, one being “Venus’ Looking Glass.” This name came about because of the campanula’s place in mythological story telling. Venus owned a magical mirror which reflected only beautiful images. When she lost this mirror, she sent Cupid to find it. Cupid dropped the looking glass and it shattered into a million pieces. True to its practice of making everything around it beautiful, the glass fell to the ground and sprouted stunning blue, bell-shaped flowers. These flowers have other folkloric tales attached to them. For instance, it was said that fairies planted campanulas to trap those who passed them – especially small children.  The campanula flower is frequently given as a sort of “thank you” gift, as these blossoms are often thought to represent gratitude. They are also given as symbols of affection, as they are sometimes said to symbolize constancy and everlasting love, as well as humility and delicacy.
