Illustration Friday: Forward

Once upon a time,
there were three little sisters,



 and Tillie,

and they lived at the bottom of a treacle well,
making treacle pies and treacle cakes
and all sorts of treacle delights.

Because what else do you do with so much treacle.

Now, everyone knows that Elsie and Lacie and Tillie
loved to draw things that start with the letter M:
like monsters,
and maggots,
and meerkats.

But what they don't know is
that every afternoon,
they would draw mustaches on their faces
 and sneak topside
with their basket full of treacle goodies
and leave it at the doorstep of a random house
with a note that read:

Got Milk?

*Inspired by the Dormouse's story from Alice in Wonderland.

Once she had moved into her new home, Haruki came to the chilling realization that she had not prepared a way to get down.  It looked as if she might be stuck there.  Forever.  Until she came up with a plan to lure in some unsuspecting birds....

Illustration Friday: Grounded


Hello, and Happy New Year!  I hope 2012 is starting off smoothly and beautifully for you.  We had an amazing vacation visiting my truly beautiful sister-in-law in Kauai.  Days were spent playing in the waves and reveling in sudden rain showers.  And in the evenings, we delighted in each other's company over fragrant teas, guitar strumming and the perfect ratio of raisins to almonds.  Thank you, C!  I hope you are having fun on your board and smiling.  We miss you!

Just a few snapshots from our time in paradise.  The Stalker Santa in the window creeped out my girls.  And yes, feral chickens!  Roosters are quite gorgeous, I must say.
