Great Aunties Garden

I know ....where have I been.  Mostly loosing body fat with the intense heat, but mainly here and there.

Romping and pretending is my favorite pastime....Reality is much to much sometimes.  So I get together with my band of superhero puddleducks and we escape to faraway places and banish villians.

Spectacles Crane shows off his aquatic talents. 

There has been much flurry at the grange this summer and my creative assignments where cut down to just one fabulous swap!

I will share all the splendid imagination I recieved...very soon...I can only tell you, that recieving art from suburb talented ladies from all over the world is a very precious gift ♥

To: the women who inspire's this fantastic ning site and our

I hope you where able to pop over to for the  "Mad Tea Party!"  Vanessa is a non stop creative heart and uplifting soul, who I had the pleasure of finding thanks to a Willowing Friend.. .

  Christina has gifted me such joyfilled cards in the past (picture of just one shown below)  and her art is thrilling and original.  She has been discovered in her homeland of Sweden to illustrate for a childrens book.  Congratulations and "I told you so" 

On my return.. my puddleduck email box had such cyber♥messages and I was overwhelmed.  I am truly blessed to have connected with each and everyone (you are listed in blogs to visit)
I have mentioned before the crafty bunch just over the Great Britian...The constant inspiration and "Come Join IN!"  lets gooooooo  just lifts my soul.  So following into another swapping adventure (previous was the ultimate fun 50button swap resulting in a cyber friendship the "Mermaid Art Swap" is my next escape to the land of piece, joy, and imagination.

Speaking of Faye(cartwheels&bubbles) that the heat has burnt itself out and me along with it,   remember the little mouse from the MolleMakers mag that Faye so generously sent me?  Well I thought the mouse needed an addition to her wardrobe. (Buttons from Faye...all the great ones can be found in England!)

I am smiling and happy to be blogging today, I have missed all♥s    so very much.  There is tons more I would love to ramble on   about but my chores have piled up and I must go for now...But not until I express my gratitude to my sweet sister Charolette. 


Grown with Love & Care and on the day these jewels POPPED!  I recieved their photo's to brighten my spirits and to let me know.....that a sister knows............

Yes♥    I am blessed and todays tale just skimmed the list

Until next time.....
