Happy, happy, happy, happy, happy Spring!
As I went for my walk early this morning, I saw a "white" rainbow - I didn't know there was such a thing - it made me think of my father, Preston, and I cried from the crazy beauty. The rabbits were out eating green grasses and little yellow flowers were blooming everywhere with fog and sunshine all at once - it was just like Alice In Wonderland! If you have not yet seen Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter - "please", go feast your eyes on the magical, visual buffet!!! I really need that hat. Johnny, if you are reading this, I'll trade you something cool for that amazing hat!
We are making "beautiful wear", packing trailers and sewing props in preparation for our very important date at Marburger Farm Antique Show very,very, soon. I think we should just throw one big tea party for the whole week. What a blast that would be... We can do that after the show and everyone is invited!
"If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is because everything would be what it isn't. And contrary-wise; what it is wouldn't be, and what it wouldn't be, it would. You see?
- Alice
Maybe that is why a raven is like a writing desk!!

Oh, this picture of Johnny, Robin...be still my beating heart! I saw 'Alice' last week with my family, and I absolutely LOVED everything about it! Oh, the costumes...I wish I lived nearby so I could join in the tea party fun with you. Come over for a visit - my daughter Abby and I had a little Alice photo shoot of our own x

Such a Wondrous Place this Faery Space said...

Loved it, as well. Actually found myself smiling and being so grateful for experiencing such beauty and storytelling in 3D that it felt dreamy at times. I am in awe of it all. Great photo of dear Mr. Depp, it looks like he could be at your place, hee hee. Good luck at the farm!!! I know what Magnolia Pearl, a raven and a writing desk have in common...
They all have feathers that set the imagination in full flight; the plumes of the peacock full of the beauty of this Earth and its surreal perfection, the raven's flight and flights of fancy in that they are one of the only flying birds known to play and the quill that sends ideas to paper to be appreciated for all, a sharing. Well, off I go. Take care beautiful ones. Blessings.

Very much looking forward to stopping by your booth at the show. This will be my first time going and I'm beside myself excited!

I saw a white rainbow on an Oregon beach recently. Didn't know they existed... magic! (Like Johnny!)

Every picture of Johnny is amazing, he just gets better and better with age... I do plan on seeing the movie.

Wish I could be there for the Spring Show, my DH and Grandson are presently visiting in Texas, but alas, I will be working and couldn't make it this time.

However, our Anniversary is this week *20+ years* and my DH got me an amazing MP Mary Poppins Travel Bag at auction and presented it before he left... always wanted one so it was the PERFECT gift!

Your Rainbow Moment and memory of your Dad touched me, so many things remind me of my Dad too... I like to think its his way of revealing himself to me in nature and everyday moments.

May you have a grand Tea Party and many sales at the show.

Hi Miss Robin!

I just wanted to let you know that I purchased my first Magnolia Pearl outfit last week and everywhere I went people ooohed and ahhhed! I have followed your work for quite some time but never had a chance to buy anything. I bought it from Leslie at Frilly Frocks in Phoenix, AZ. You are amazing and your clothes make me feel like a fairy princess!

Take care and Happy Spring!

I just stumbled upon your site and was in awe at all the pretty pictures and video's. The stories are wonderful. I read all the way through your blog and just loved it. The photo's with your grandmother were very touching. I know she is still guiding you through life and is one of your guardian angels.
You have such a beautiful soul and spirit. I immensely enjoyed my visit. LOVE the lace victorian clothes! I don't think your anywhere in South Carolina, but I would cry to be able just to touch them. I've always loved romantic clothes like this. ♥♥♥

I *knew* there was a reason that I'm drawn to you and your site. Johnny Depp, Yeats and tea parties. I feel like I already know you. I hope you will be at the Autumn Marberger show. I'm planning to come down just to see you all.
