Vanessa this is so fabulous! I wanna think of things like this and I love your style so much. Sometimes I think I really need to simplify my work, I just always end up doing it the same way though. Soooooooooo cute! I really love all the clothes too.

Lisa M Griffin said...

Hee-Hee, boy he is really tied up in knots. Pretty much the definition of tough love. =)
Fun, charming, and a delight... just like the artist. Have a great week! =)

Awwwwww, Vanessa, thank you so much for what you said on my blog. You are the sweetest! I really appreciate that more than you know. It's hard not to question your self and your work sometimes. I guess I am feeling a little out of sorts right now. Bless you, you are so kind!

Who would think a python would have to be rescued from some kids?? Great twist (hehe!). Love your new springy background - I spruced up my blog for spring, too! You are awesome!

I love this. It is such wonderful fun! And your new template is so refreshing. Congrats on the header, the blog and Pinkey Python's rescue.

Ces said...

Oh drats! Security is preventing me from enjoying your creation. I shall be back. Down with floods! I'll be back, with weapons!

TJ Lubrano said...

Janine said...

So lovely!
You bring truely so joy in my life, and I bet not only in mine.
I see your blog had a facelift, but I can´t see the header, I tried to different servers and nothing but the little red x showing that there might be something.
That´s sad, I am so nosy aftre I loved the old header so much I would like to know what the new one is like.
Have a great week
Janine

BAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAA!! Oh JEEPERS, Lady V! This KICKS it! I can't get over poor Pinky's face. HAHAHAHAHA! I really love the girl wearing Pinky as a hat. She's got a real tight grip. Hey! I want her rainboots! Polka dotted rainboots ROCK! I love this, love this, love this sooooooo much!

Krista said...

Well, if it isn't SPRING over at Ooh-La-La! Lovely! And if this isn't just the cutest group of kids messing with a python. You have a knack for dressing your kids in such stylish up-to-date clothes! (I guess I don't have a whole lot of inspiration-- my boys are all about t-shirts and shorts once the weather is over 50 degrees!) And your faces are so over-the-top EXPRESSIVE!

Susan said...

Hey Miz Vee! LOVE the new look, how'd ya do it? Is it one of the new blogger templates or your own custom? My blog needs an overhaul like now! Poor Pinky indeed, that bow tie, ACK! Seeing your cute kids is always such a special treat, they are so fun and full of life and those polka dotted boots! I saw some like that the other day in TJ Maxx - was pretty tempting. Thanks for sharing your wonderful world with us! Along with Ces & Shirley I also bestowed the Renee Award on you. You probably have it already, but oh well - you've been a wonderfully supportive friend and inspiration and I truly appreciate it.
Thanks! xoxoxo Susan

Okay, you know what? These faces are so adorable, it's scary. You are soooooo good! This is a lovely rendition of the theme and so funny. I love the look on Pinky's face (I guess I'd look like that too if someone tied part of my body into a bow! HA!)

Have a great day, my dear, and I may give you a call tonight, if that's okay.

Love you much!
