This picture was taken around 4 years ago, the last time I saw this girl in person. Right now I’m many thousands of miles away, praying for her and for her family, particularly her dad, who is battling a very severe brain tumor. 😦

This is a page remembering happier times, in a place we’ve both left but will always remember because of all the memories we made there.

Hiding Behing a Veil

Actually, that’s the outer layer of my skirt. I love the combination of purple and green. It reminds me of lavender, my favorite scent.

It was my dad’s idea to use my skirt as a lace mantilla, a spanish lace shawl. And since I’m the picture, obviously I didn’t take it myself, which is quite rare! As the family’s “official photographer,” I always say that it is the photographer’s fate never to be in any pictures. 😀

Using this same layout, I made a cosmetics themed background for my sister-in-law. It was amazing how I could use the same basic background and layout and yet come out with a completely different look.

It’s Today! (a virtual party in a blog)

with 2 comments

As a new citizen of the City of Ladies I’ve decided to give a little party for my new friends and neighbors here in this colorful city. A little virtual celebration is always a nice chance to share works and favorite music and just have fun for no particular reason except that it’s today!

~~~

Hurrah!

It’S a MaD tEa PaRtY!!

Everyone, gather ’round for some singing and dancing.

Got your own trumpets, cymbals and other unusual and delightful musical instruments?

Feel free to dance the twist, jump around in sheer glee or simply just wave your arms about and shake your bodies to the sound of the music.

It’s today!
Though it may not be anyone’s birthday,
And though it’s far from the first of the year,
I know that this very minute has history in it, we’re here!

~~~

Have a seat in our makeshift little Parisian café, with spindly metal tables and chairs with heart-shaped backs and those pretty silver cutlery and dainty china cafés seem to come with.

How about some refreshments?

We’ve got coffee and sandwiches for you.

I’m afraid we don’t have any raspberry cordial today but someone gave us a bottle of currant wine, if you would like to try that. I hear it’s quite good; Diana Barry drank a whole bottle of it once, to her parents’ horror but everyone else’s delight.

~~~

A perfect day to relax and to rejuvenate.

A perfect time for dancing and dreaming, for trying out new things and making new friends.

Before you go, don’t forget to browse the italicized words around the room for surprise gifts!
