Have you noticed that the theme "circus" is very big at the moment? I picked it for one of the themes for the blissfull atc swap... I don't actually like going the circus or Zoos ... I know lots has changed and today the circus has more people acts than animals but still. I don't go to them...As for Zoo's I know they do lots to help the animals but I once want to Tycross zoo in England when I was younger. I can still remember the look of the poor tiger pacing up and down in his small cage... To me wild animals should be that ,in the wild. Protected but wild... Okay off my soap box and on to my ATC's for the swap... and although I don't like  the circus........ I do like the bright colors I got to use.

I don't know who I'm swapping with yet but I hope they love them.. I loved making them...

My rowdy neighbours...leave!

For a while now I have put up with some rowdy neighbours.. Their cries started at dawn and when on in the evening.... I couldn't even walk out of my front door without see them, watching me...They hated my dogs and would give nasty looks to them.......... their kids were no better.. with their boisterous voices but today they moved out....... but they left me a little present......

Yes the birds who had made their nest in a bush by my front door left...I've watched Mum and Dad fly in and out of the bushes for a few weeks now... they would sit on my porch fence watching has I came and went .. they would watch Willow and Acorn with a vigilant eye....I stopped sitting on my porch because of the fuss they would make  but they made it up to me in the form of a beautiful nest they left for me....

I have it sitting in a bowl and added some eggs and made a fabric bird.. the pattern was from the book I won in a giveaway.

But OH no! look what I saw today.......looks like the porch is out of bounds again.

tAkE A WOrD ...bEaCH


The summer of color challenge this week is PINK... what does pink mean to you ? to me I'm in back to the 80s when the movie Pretty in pink came out.... and still to this day when that movie comes on I watch... knowing every line, every look as Duckie, Andy and Blaine play out this love story... it also helps that the movie had great music.....  the title song sung by The Psychedelic Furs.... 

Duckie was the friend you wished you had..Andy had such cool style and Blaine was the nice guy you hoped Andy would end up with ....

So here is my Pretty in pink ATC... I had fun playing with the wax as part of the challenge. I ended up melting some pink crayola crayon on her wings... it made them curl and added a pink tinted texture.

Caroline laughs and
It's raining all day
She loves to be one of the girls
She lives in the place
In the side of our lives
Where nothing is
Ever put straight
She turns herself round
And she smiles and she says
'This is it'

'That's the end of the joke'
And loses herself
In her dreaming and sleep
And her lovers walk
Through in their coats

Pretty in pink
Isn't she?
Pretty in pink
Isn't she?

All of her lovers
All talk of her notes
And the flowers
That they never sent
And wasn't she easy
And isn't she
Pretty in pink
The one who insists
He was first in the line
Is the last to
Remember her name
He's walking around
In this dress
That she wore
She is gone
But the joke's the same

Pretty in pink
Isn't she?
Pretty in pink
Isn't she?

Caroline talks to you
Softly sometimes
She says
'I love you' and
'Too much'
She doesn't have anything
You want to steal
Nothing you can touch
She waves
She buttons your shirt
The traffic
Is waiting outside
She hands you this coat
She gives you her clothes
These cars collide

Pretty in pink
Isn't she?
Pretty in pink
Isn't she?

I'm late, I'm late for a very important date

A knock awoke me and I rushed to the door , just time to see a white rabbit disappear next door. He had  left a letter, an invite to a tea party, to happen right NOW. Just time to put on my Alice band and close the front door... but wait; where do I go?

Then I spyed the rabbit's foot prints leading the way.. I followed and followed down the green path , through the bushes and plants until at last they came upon a tiny blue house hidden by grass...

 ...where the mad hatter met me and said with a smile on his face "I was starting to wonder if you were not late"   

'I'm sorry, forgive me, I came in good grace  I hope this is the place?

"OH yes," said the hatter,  "but we must hurry and must have haste."  As he walked throught the small door with a big grin on his face....                    

but I can't get in ... the house is too small........

"I can fix that" he said pointing to a small bottle.... the label said drink me...  it would make me grow small.

and slowly I shrank down to the size of mouse.. and could enter the mad hatter's house will no trouble at all... "welcome" called out the guests, all ready seated, they were Acorn and her little sister Weed. Miss Oak stood at the back with a basket full of kitties...

the kettle had boiled and the faerie cups lay; waiting to be fill with rose hip tea...

Everyone had happy faces except for Rosebud who was quite upset that Willow the dog had taken her red mushroom seat... 

"Oh good you have arrived at last "said the dog.... I looked around the small living room and stared in amazement at the goodies on the table in front of me...

jellybeans and cupcakes , lemonade and rose hip tea........  too many good things to eat

toadstools and magic

mad hatter's hats so tall and so bright

the clock stuck midnight , in no time at all  

Time to go home but wait, I was still so very small .....

and with that the white rabbit appeared and handed over a cake..

 then with a twitch of his nose...
 disappeared in a cloud of faerie dust.

The cake was so pretty with blue icing words; it said so clearly in two little words... the thing I must do to get back to size ... so with a smile on my face I took a large bite..... My feet began to tingle my nose began to itch... and before I knew what had happened I was home in my bed....

I hope you had fun here and you're welcome to come back... who knows what will happen... when one day we'll go back...

but Wait don't go yet!

I have one more surprise ... for the Mad hatter left this. One of his top hats.  

to share with you...

Just leave me a comment and email to win this ... A mad hatters hat

I will pick out a name on July 1st at noon. 
Now I wish you good luck.....and I'm off to the other tea parties...won't you join me?

Update: the mad hatter is ......asleep. 

Wow sugar rush from all the goodies I've eaten and my head hurts from all the talking and laughing this weekend....and my faerie wings are worn out....... That mad hatter is such a joker and Alice the sweetest girl... the white rabbit needs a holiday away from the nasty queen and she needs.... to stop moaning about the colour of her roses and her jam tarts...

I want to send a big super sized thank you to VANESSA for hosting.... but also thank you all of YOU for popping over to see me and leaving such nice comments......Thanks to Laura at the land of Nod for her images...Terri for her tutorial on faeries houses... hugs wendy....
