What a delight to find these cuties chattin' it up this morning! Which reminds me, I need to call my sistah, and possibly we can connect with Granny, too! Would you like to join us? There's plenty of string! :o)

Epanorthosis said...

I tried to call you but you did not answer.

Ces said...

Three way!!! That was HOT HOT HOT!!! I rememeber that. Great illustration Vee. I tried to call you too, but you did not answer.

Tamara Henderson said...

Cute illustration!I remember we played with cans like this when I was a kid.

Alissa Staples said...

So cute Vanessa!! BTW saw your musical book signing on youtube, and it made me very happy!! You rule! <3

Tracey said...

So cute! If telephone bills keep going up this might be a great idea again. Keep up the fabulous work.

Tomás Serrano said...

Ha, ha... but now I think they are playng with cellulars...

k.h.whitaker said...

Cute, I always loved tin can telephones. Fun Illustration as usual Ms.Vanessa. :)

Janine said...

Oh yes, how wonderful was the cell- phone-free time!
I miss it, well it is practical (like PCs too)but sometimes, too much technologit is y for me.
Well, it is kind of schizophren to write that down, while I am siting infront of my notebook ( hi hi).
However, I love your girls, and their tin- phones.
Have a great weekend
Janine

Melissa Saylor said...

You are just too clever for words. Love, love, love! Thanks for sharing :)

claudine hellmuth said...

i love your illustration work!

Giuseppe Bianco said...

So cute. Your art style is truly original. This illustration make me wish I was a kid again.

salli s. swindell said...

fabulouso + fantastico!!! and how DO you find the time to leave such adoring comments on so many blogs??? you're the best!

Ana said...

hahaha, I used to play like that. Making your own phones was so fun and having walkie talkies the ultimate cool. I don't know if kids would enjoy these kind of games today as they all seem to have their own cell phones now... It's all about technology and they like to talk through their facebook instead. I was a kid in the late 80's and early 90's and it seems like an entirely era has passed. This makes me miss those days so much ♥

k.h.whitaker said...

I'm sending big virtual hug to you!
XOXOXO

Bella Sinclair said...

Aww, LOOK at these cuties! I love their outfits, especially the little polka dotted number in the middle. I remember laughing my butt off when my girlies were trying to do this for the same time. They'd stand two feet away from each other and shout.

I have my can. Anyone got a 3,000 mile piece of string?

XO XO XO XO

Ces said...

Aah Vee! I am okay. I just need to take care of something important, get ready for the holidays, move to another corporate office, implement a major project, write 100 rule modules, celebrate my husband's birthday the week of Thanksgiving with dinner and guests, follow up with so many medical appointments - I have a specialist for every major organ in my body (it seems)... you see? My sisters are worried that I am not blogging so I need to return as soon as I can. Hopefully I will have a holiday post. Thank you so much Vee. I got your so sweet email too. Tsup! Tsup!

Rabbit Town Animator said...

your work is so amazing! I love your characters!

Michelle Henninger said...

Oooh, Vanessa I love this!! You have such a wonderful way of capturing the character of little kids! I love these kiddos. Thanks for making me smile, yet again!! :)

Ces said...

Thank you for the extra 500 miles. I hope the line goes through me because if it has to go from either you two, you will need a longer string,, around 1,700 from Vee to me and about 1,600 between Bella and me. By the way, going towards Bella, about 740 of that is just to get out of Texas!

Ken Chandler said...

Vanessa, you have been busy! and you're work is lookin' so good! Congrats on getting your art published, and for collaborating with Tori Spelling. I'll be back to see more of your incredible work.

AtelierBrigitte said...

Hey Vanessa! My wife and I rented Grown-Ups yesterday and there was a scene where the kids all hooked up string phones. It brought back fun memories. Your illustration just warms my heart! It is so perfectly sweet. Like heart candy! Those little girlie characters are pure “Ms V” !! Hey thanks for stopping by and the encouraging and kind comments. You’re the BEST!

I love these girls! It's wonderful how you've styled each girl's outfit to create individual characters and yet they all coordinate so harmoniously together.
