Ces said...

HEYHEYHEYHEYHEYHEYHEY!!!!!


I want those patterns. Are you designing patterns for neckties? They are sooo-cool. If you have them in silk, I will buy them and wear them with my fall and winter outfits. These designs are so much better than the stiff and staid designs in men's ties. Don't they know that there are women who love to wear ties? I am serious.

WHAT THE HECK?!
WHAT THE HECK?!

WHY ARE YOU WRITING A STORY ABOUT ME WITHOUT MY CONSENT?

"Anna Bella Maria Mary Josephine Constance Karen Maryweather?

Don't you know my name is Maria Victoria Isabella Christina Cecilia M----- P------ A----- C----
???

HUH?
HUH?

Why do you think I act this way?
HUH?

Seriously why can't you design neck ties my favorite if the first on the left. It would be nice if you put the deranged girl on it too - YES YES! I love deranged girls. I love that you have a wicked city woman. Oh A.Bella is perfectly deranged! Let's call her A.Bella M.M.J.K.C.M. She and Isabella Wellesley will be best friends! Don't you think they need another friend from the Pacific Coast? That way the entire US is covered - You cover the East coast, I cover the mid states and that California girl will cover the Pacific states. Total domination!~

Vanessa Brantley Newton said...

Ces, I didn't know it was YOU!!!!! See , I figure You, Bella , Cheryl and I must have some super alter egos or somethin' cause they just keep popping up all over the place. I was must some Mental Ninja. I've been taking classes from the Master Ninja Bella. I think you would look so cool with those designs on a tie he he he! I'm so glad that you approve of the patterns! YOU are Simply hilarious and crazy and this is why I love you! he he he!

Susan Faye said...

What a magical forest! Just beautiful!

narelle said...

I love those trees. Very interesting ideas and pattern.

Bella Sinclair said...

Yesssss, with all of us working together, we will take the US by storm. And then tomorrow....THE WORLD!!! MWAHAHAHAHA!

Oh, jeepers. I LOVE Little Red! She's got ooomph. What an adorable little skirt. And I wonder what she has in her little basket of goodies. Pineapple upside down cake and a good can of mace. I tell ya, Red. The floral trees will probably lead you to Granny's house. But if I were you, I'd follow the trees with the bling. They will take you straight to Cartier's. Ooh la la!

nina seven said...

I'm in LOVE! Those are the coolest trees I have ever seen.

Sascratch said...

Cheryl Lynn said...

Ok, Momma! This is unique and sweet, and a little edgy, if I may say so. I love Little Red. The girl is tre' cool. I need, and I do mean NEED, her stockings! You, Ces, Bella, and I would make the perfect girl band; I'm really just a frustrated rocker chick, you know.

This is just another example of your talent, wit, and charming creative genius!

Love ya, much!

Art Fan Ako said...

I'm really loving your style. This girl's stockings are the coolest! Love the patterns. Great entry!
