What with packing and getting ready to have my house torn apart, I didn't think I'd have time to play with Colleen today, but....

well......

I just had to!

This sweet little figurine sits on a shelf in Dahlia's room with many (ahem.....not all) of her Cinderella collection.
Here's that shelf.

And here's where we found her. Now, you can't tell, but the little pumpkin she is sitting on is of course - orange....because pumpkins ARE orange, right? Wrong....in my house they're silver (and with sparkles too).

We don't do orange here so I painted it.

And speaking of paint........I have an anniversary coming up. March 1st marks one year since I opened my blog and I'll be doing a give-away and all I'll say is it has something to do with paint.

You'll have to check back for more clues.

I love your fairy collection. I think it's hysterical that you decided to paint her pumpkin to make your decor.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Hi My Friend!

I think you should submit your "tweak" of that sweet fairy to the original artist...cause its far BETTER!! I love your flair right down to every last detail!!

AND gosh, I can't believe you are approachig one year for your blog! You are so talented with it all, I simply presumed you have been blogging for years! Happy early 1 year!!

I'm so happy that our paths crossed within this past year!!

Happy weekend!

P.S. Is it just me?? Or does that beautiful fairy look quite a lot like you?.....oh yes, she does!! :)

Of course it is silver...... orange would not go with anything in your beautiful home:)

I thought your giveaway might have to do with fairies...... but now that you said paint..... Are you going to be giving away one of your original paintings??? OMG...I hope that I am right.

Happy weekend.....and good luck with the remodel!!

Sorry we missed each other today:(

I think that beautiful Fairy looks like YOU! Those are really, really beautiful. I LOVE that you painted it silver...with sparkles, of course! It is much more beautiful than ORANGE, especially in YOUR house!

You crack me up!

I can't WAIT to hear what the giveaway is. I am on pins and needles!

Happy Weekend!

Life with Kaishon said...

Wanda : ) I just laughed out loud about how you don't do orange at your house : ) SO hilarious. Kaishon is all about orange! So, needless to say, we do lots of orange around our house : )
