oh, we do hope we're not too late!

That's Tink. She insisted on coming to the party & I couldn't refuse ... she hasn't been to a party in more than 100 years, poor thing (neither have I, for that matter).

Of course she didn't have anything to wear. Together we were able to find just the right fabric to make a new party dress and wouldn't you know it, it took much longer to make than we anticipated. When she'd gotten dressed and was ready to go, we were in such a hurry we nearly left all the lemon poppy seed bread on the table (please ... help yourself - we brought plenty to share). If it hadn't been for faithful Fern ...



... I'm certain that we would have left it behind.

We decided to take a short cut to the party. Little did we know that we'd come accross a most amazing butterfly crossing (first time I've witnessed this magical moment). What an amazing sight that was! I do wish I had my camera with me ... 10,000+ butterflies in any and every color you can imagine (silver, gold, magenta, blue - even speckled like robin's eggs, jeweled toned & calico, too). They flew in on the whisper of a silken sweet breeze & blew kisses to us, the sky and the trees and then, almost as quickly as they appeared ... they were gone.

Before too long Tink was wiped out, so we stopped to rest our feet. While we rested I remembered the elements series I had done:



Earth & Fire
Air & Water


I realized it's been way too long since I have played with my colored pencils. Not too long after that, we were on our way again and now we are
finally here. Hope we are not to late ...

Thank you for having us, eb, everything looks so beautiful, the food smells divine & your guests, well your guests look so joyful ... please excuse us while we mingle.

they'd love that, Stephanie - thanks! ~M~

Mine, too, Janet. Glad you liked it ... it's my favorite recipe. I'm hoping to get a better picture of Tink tomorrow - had to take the photo this evening and have really bad light ... fingers crossed. :) Thank you for the kind words. ~M~

You gave me inspiration ?
My daughter and her friends go dressed in april as the elements of nature to a festival ( elffantasy in the Netherlands).
My daughter designed their clothes, but I didn't have a clue yet for their make up .
Now I do !

thanks
Inge

Tink is such magic, finding air, fire, earth, and water for us to dip into and dance with the magical butterflies!

Loved the lemon poppyseed cake too!

Thank you!

Tinker said...

That Tink of yours sure looks cute - lovely to have met you both at the Festival. Thanks for bringing the bread - it smells delicious. But I better hold off, since I ate so many cookies and klondike bars already. Maybe I'll save a little piece for later though :-)
