5 Lovely Things



{Loving this illustrator and her vintage fashion sense.}


{Do peek at the botanical background/image on this illustrator's site!}

"The Leopard of Little Breezes yawned up and further off from the rooftops of Omaha, Nebraska, to which September did not even wave good-bye. One ought not to judge her: all children are Heartless. They have not grown a heart yet, which is why they can climb high trees and say shocking things and leap so very high grown-up hearts flutter in terror. Hearts weigh quite a lot. That is why it takes so long to grow one. But, as in their reading and arithmetic and drawing, different children proceed at different speeds. (It is well known that reading quickens the growth of a heart like nothing else.) "


{One day, Laura and I are going to go on a Chitty Chitty Bang Bang tour 
- especially to the very real Cobstone Mill. }

{Are these paperdolls by Breezy Tulip and Emily Rose not the sweetest things?}

Also, you may have noticed a new poll in the sidebar. Now you can put your 2 cents in on what this blog should post about next! (Highly useful to indecisive characters such as myself...)

I wish I could live inside those pretty illustrations for a moment. Everything looks so sweet and calm.

All quite lovely. :) (Glad to find another Chitty Chitty Bang Bang fan, too.)

Reborn, me too! They've been a sweet comfort in my sad, crazy week.

Melissa, Laura watched Chitty Chitty Bang Bang several times a week when she was little - die hard fans here! ;) I'll have to get her to post about the neat commentaries she found this week!
