Guh!

Any one who knows me knows that I have a soft spot for sheep (and pink flamingos – but that is a different post.). So when I saw these I just had to post about their super-duper adorableness (I say this is a word and I’m stickin’ to it!).

Baa baa - too cute


I came to the site Jo so and sew from Whip-up, [always a fun romp through crafty land]. I think I might need to make one of these. I mean seriously could they be cuter?

Speaking of cute… Jo so and sew, is a super cute blog but it is not surprising that I like it… she is also participating in Pip’s envelope project, which I just learned reading her blog AND she also loves flamingos. [Jo, I love these birds, but I think they may be swans not flamingos. – no worries though they are so fun it doesn’t really matter!] So that’s sheep, flamingos (or swans either are lovely!) and the envelope project. Any wonder I like this blog?

What could be more whimsical than Fairies?

Ever wonder what your name would be if you were to suddenly find yourself transformed into a fairy by an evil troll who wanted to eat you for lunch?  No, well me neither actually but just in case that ever does happen to you, you can get your very own fairy name here.

What’s my name… well its, umm, well its

Your fairy is called Hex Goblinweb
She is a bringer of riches and wealth.
She lives in places hexed and tainted by black magic.
She is only seen in the mist of an early morning.
She wears black feathers and rose petals. She has gentle green wings like a butterfly.

Oh and if I did suddenly become a fairy and needed a place to live – it would most certainly be here…

The Envelope Project -update

Speaking of Meet me at Mikes… Pip’s Envelope project is moving right along.  You can check out some to the ephemera and cool envelopes that she has collected thus far here at her blog and here.

Also she has set up a flickr set with many pics of the project… too much fun!

This image contains the stuff I sent…

Can you guess what came from me?

There it is! My envelope in the window of Meet me at Mike’e in Melbourne, Australia. How cool is that… which one you ask? the one with all the ribbons running along the side. I love this project!

Out, on a whim…

One of the great things about the internet is taking a little unmapped meander through bloggy-land.   Following one link after the other,  you simply never know what treasure you might happen upon.  Today I started out at ::Meet me at Mikes,

Meet me at Mike's

one of my regular haunts where I read about this fabulous Dutch illustrator, Noelle Smit.

Pip had heard about her through this amazing little patch of bloggy-land, Zeza&Flor,

which of course meant that I had to go there as well. This is a companion blog for Zeza & Flor shop in Belgium, but it is really much more of a personal blog. Let me just say that this lady understands whimsy! After spending a little time resting on this site, I followed her link to this absolutely glorious illustrator Cristian Turdera. His work is simply to die for. It is sheer joy and jubilation.
I am in love.
