a wee visitor.....and some Hankie Pankie..






 What a lovely start to my day...I wee thing dropped by...well I picked her up yesterday in fact..
and she was more than eager to join me for breakfast...




Cori surprised me with a likeness of me in cartoon form via a Paper Ladies Pin Cushion...
I adore her in all her gingham, dots and lace....I could not be more thrilled to add her to my morning rituals....In fact, surprising the sun came peaking through to kiss her gently on the cheek...





What is so darn cute about the LIKENESS OF ME...is that she has jewels, glasses and polish
on her nails... so many details and of course my gingham bow... she is ME....How wonderful it was to spend time with ME this morning...:) I know ....silly  yes but sooooo passionately in LOVE I am with her and the designer lol !

I am working on a new ruffled dress today, if I get my wee new adventure ( soon will announce) underway.... I  have a full day..... In the meantime, we have been collecting some hankies...

Be sure to check on us next week, I met the most divine designer of these wonderful treasures...She is going to share her talent with us all...Can I say you will be so darn inspired.... She is a rare gem, we spoke at lengths and I do believe she will compliment what we are doing..Wait and see.... I love when talent and passion UNITE....it is that UNIVERSE thing again..wink...



 All of these have been hand washed, and pressed....some were not the best of condition...you would never know they were washed 8 x as they were pretty soiled...Some of these are 40-50 years old.... Cori and I will be splitting these all so we can share our Paper Ladies coming to life in the weeks and months ahead....  We are so excited at all the possibilities...


YOU are kind, smart and IMPORTANT to me~

She looks very happy in her new surroundings, and I am sure you two are off to have great adventures with those hankies! You have such a beautiful collection there.
