Charlie Brown Christmas Tree

My dad sent me the following photos while working in Ann Arbor today:

In case you have trouble reading the note in the second picture, this is what it says:

A few years ago this tree appeared here one day with a note attached which said "This is the Charlie Brown Christmas Tree. I found it in the trash and rescued it and planted it here." The tree was scrawny and misshapen then, but look at how beautiful and graceful it has become. Merry Christmas everyone!

I think whoever did this must have a very loving soul. It made me smile when I saw these photos and read the note. I hope it will do the same for you :)      Oh, and be sure to look closely at the first picture, there is an ornament on the tree, just like in the Charlie Brown Christmas special (one of my all-time favorites!).                     


On Saturday my new doll came home. Her name is Irina, she is a 35cm porcelain BJD made by JRDolls. She is the twin sister of my doll Isabelle (they were both made with the same mold, although there were some minor modifications). I think she's really sweet, and they look super cute together! Here are some pics:

Irina is wearing Ishtar's wig at the moment - I am actually making her her own wig, but I haven't had a lot of time to work on it. So Ishtar is wearing Elena's yarn wig, Elena is wearing her beaded icicle wig, and Irina is wearing Ishtar's wig until her own wig is finished….

New Illustration: Alice (Fairy Tale Fashion Series #4)

Alice (Fairy Tale Fashion Series #4)

Through the keyhole you can see Alice walking through Wonderland, meeting the Cheshire Cat. Characters from Wonderland inhabit the borders, including the Caterpillar and White Rabbit. Many skeleton keys also float around the keyhole - one of them can unlock the door, to free Alice. But which one? "Alice" is the fourth illustration in my Fairy Tale Fashion Series.

This illustration is now available at my stores on Cafe PressRed BubbleArtist Rising,my deviantArt print shop. and my Zazzle Store.
