Peony OrganzaWell, my peonies are in bloom and there is always so much going on in Blogland and I sure do love all the inspiration.

June Peonies

Peony PerfectionMy friend Gabriela Danforth is such a talented lady from Toronto. She has been on television with her crown creations, taught at the Tinsel Trading Company and has been published in Somerset Wedding, as well as other places. Oh my I love all of her crowns and her blog is one of the prettiest places. She just introduced her paper dolls kits and well, I had to share them with you. She even has a special place called MAKE YOUR OWN VINTAGE PAPER DOLLS to show you all about her new kits. Stop by and visit Gabriela, she always has something wonderful going on and her place is so pretty and full of gorgeous crowns and paper creations.



Peony PerfectionA PARTY, did I say a Party. Yes, at A Fanciful Twist! Vanessa is the ultimate storyteller and gifted artist. Whether she is designing some new fabulous canvas or such incredibly adorable critters and creations, she is always in the middle of magic. So, to celebrate her 200th post she is giving us a party on June 28th...a mad tea party to be exact. Exactly why you must stop by and see all the details on her fun post with your invitation.


Peony PerfectionPINK Saturday is being hosted by Bev from How Sweet The Sound. There is still time today to let her know if you would like to visit all the blogs that will be posting their Pinkest Pink Possession. My daughter Sarah and I were cleaning out an armoire in her room and I found so many pink princess treasures. I think I found the Perfect Pink Possession to Post tomorrow!

Peony PerfectionOne more thing I POSTED a few more 8 x 10 prints to my etsy today. My first little number is called

Oh and don't forget The Rainbow Dragon. This is Wobniar, which is rainbow spelled backwards. He is a character from a story I wrote for my girls called The Rainbow Dragon. This cute little guy just couldn't muster any fire like his angry dad, instead he spouted rainbows when he saw life through a positive perspective (OMG more P's), and well in the story he convinces his father that it is more fun to create rainbows than be angry and create fire and raise havoc.

Peony Melody

Or would you rather be an ant...
An Ant it a creature that likes to help the peony along,
and he is known to, at times even sing a little song.
He is fast and furious and sings off key, but he still loves to sing,
He is partial to the color pink and prefers to sing along with Bing.

Hey there you with the stars in your eyes...


PINK SATURDAY STAMPThe song for this post is Swing On A Star, sung by
Bing Crosby.

I love it when the peonies are in bloom

Karen, I love this song. And, that Bing Crosby could certainly croon a tune.

Thanks for posting about Pink Saturday. This will be only the third Saturday that others have played along, and it seems to be catching the fancy of others. I am definitely a firm believer that we all need some pink in our life. I can't wait to see your pink pretties.

I'll be showing my mother the paper dolls. We both love them.
