I have to be honest and just tell you. There are so many tales, tricks, and all around happenings that go around here, that well, simply never get told. I mean, how could it all ever be shared? We (you and me) all have our own super full lives. 24 hours in a day. Impossible to share it all. So, I am going to try, from time to time, to remember some of the untold tales - of the very bestest variety.
Which leads me to me, and Mini Vanessa.
The doll version.
Yep, you heard (err, read) correctly.
Mini Vanessa is a surprise birthday creation (isn't that super nice???) made by a lovely lass (who makes dolls and more) on the other side of the pond, Patricia (of Papillon Bleu UK).
I love mini her, I mean mini me!
(mister says I look stern below, not my intention, teehee! But I was trying to balance my huge & heavy camera in one hand, mini me in the other, and press the button, whilst in front of the old mirror :)
But wait, it gets better, Mini Vanessa had a birthday party in December, at Patricia's.
Unbeknownst to human Vanessa!
It was super superb for doll Vanessa not only to be made, but to get to celebrate her birthday in the UK. Wouldn't you agree?
I knew I felt my ears tingling :)
What fun! (THANK you again Patricia!)
Oh and, in keeping with the mini topic....
I am getting ready to really start planting.
You know, digging in the soil, preparing the ground, etc.
I knew there were a few rogue mini carrots in with the herbs, still waiting to be picked, but it was better than I thought...
I planted these in June. Can you believe it?
Lots of mini carrots.
Being eyeballed by mini Miles...
Carrot Lover extraordinaire...
And also a puppy, who weighed in at 24.4 lbs at the vet today.
But wait wait....
I feel myself morphing into doll land...............
G'bye for now, see you soooooooon!
ps: I am sort of obsessed with all the tarnished bits on that old mirror I was taking photos in. Why are old mirrors so fascinating? Do you ever hope to see someone looking back at you, when you peer into an old mirror? I sort of madly hope, and then get scared and un-hope :)
