Slightly relieved it's not Ian Paisley and co, but that's a fine illo, Susan.I love the stars shooting off the testa rossa.Looks almost like a communist sparkly statue de liberté

Well, Mrs. Paisley has been lucky enough to wed a much younger man, or so it seems (I add or so it seems to every third sentence today, it´s one of those days, it seems...)

yeah, all caught up!

and how funny that there is an alice statue in london's central park as there is in nyc central park - which i JUST now discovered despite decades of visiting the park and the city!

needless to say, thought of you when i visited and wish i had had your little alice with that you gave me, however i did take a photo of by bff alice with the statue (which you can see on fb)

ah, joe the dog.

happy summer solstice.

I'm not sure of the term off the top of my head, but I love it when you combine/incorporate two or more objects to be linked or 'in sink' with each other.

another great one!

Oh! and your cards have all managed to make it out into the snail mail system, Thanks again!

Amalia K said...

Hello Susan :) Paisleys have such a natural balancing effect, don't you think? Your detailing here blows my mind, and yet the whole piece looks so clean and simple. A beautiful balance! :)

Mary Jane said...

He seems a bit cold and she seems to have stars in her mind. I have a feeling she is warm and loving and a lot of fun yet quite mysterious and I don't know if the two are going to make it far together.
