Ballooning



When tiny spiders come down with a case of wanderlust, they throw out fine lines of silk and go wherever the wind takes them.  If they're lucky to catch the right jet stream, they can cross vast oceans this way.  Eight-legged balloonists have even been found high up in atmospheric weather balloons, though they were probably dissatisfied with their final destination.  Happily, our little guy here and his traveling companion are having better luck on their aerial adventure.

Bonjour ma chère Bella,

Hier soir, j'ai visité longuement ton blog... Etrangement et avec bonheur ce matin une nouvelle publication s'affiche !
Un véritable bonheur !

Une originale embarcation ! J'aime beaucoup la petite valise avec l'adorable parapluie au manche de tête de canard ! J'ai offert à ma petite-fille un parapluie similaire.
La fillette a tout intérêt à se cramponner, heureusement qu'elle est bien attachée...
Lorsque je me rendrai à la dollhouse, je regarderai si les demoiselles araignées n'ont pas reçu comme hôte ta consoeur !

Très belle oeuvre.

Gros bisous 🌸

Oh, I know this about spiders. I read Charlotte's Web. You have a crazy imagination, Bella, to think that little girl would enjoy being on a giant spider. I think I would wait for the next insect.

Oh my goodness, this is so delightful dear Bella! You have a magical mind..your spider and friend are so charming! Thank you for popping by the dusty ol' blog..I tell you, I'm happy to simplify and visit my dear friends out here and am glad to be away from the crazy FB land that it has become, plus I'm not too keen on the whole infiltration during the elections. I shall be hopefully tending to family more and writing too. I hope you and the girls have been well!! xo

I have watched this spider in a TV program. His name is "Yuki-mukae" meaning welcoming snow. This small girl is likely to have high trust in the spider.

Imagination, nice illustration, a duo very well blended, I do not know what I like more the illustrations or their stories.
Congratulations.
Greetings.

I can’t believe you are drawing spiders!!! I was bitten on my neck by a spider yesterday evening :(
