Hi everyone,

We had a blissful show with the most amazing people full of love and laughter. Thank you God for this life and all of its beautiful opportunities. Thank you to all who came to play with us and to all who were there playing in spirit. And to my Magnolia Pearl girls, there are no words to express my gratitude - you made it possible. I love each and every one you with all of my heart.

Here's our new spring line of beautiful wear - Hope you like it. Click Image Above.

Love to all,

-- Pearl.

P.S. - John, if we live to be three hundred, it wouldn't be long enough. I love you the most.

"Sometimes," said the skin horse, for he was always truthful. "When you are real you don't mind being hurt."

Does it happen all at once, like being wound up," he asked, "or bit by bit?"

"It doesn't happen all at once," said the skin horse. "You become. It takes a long time. That's why it doesn't happen to people who break easily, or have sharp edges, or who have to be carefully kept.

Generally, by the time you are real, most of you hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby.

But these things don't matter at all, because once you are real you can't be ugly, except to people who don't understand...

Once you are real, you can't become unreal again. It lasts for always."

-- The Velveteen Rabbit.

Whenever I need a "breath of fresh air", I always look to your words, your work and the way your beautiful soul shines onto others!

Today I cried tears of happiness when I read your blog...I knew immediately your post was from the Velveteen Rabbit...I so loved that story as a child...it resonates with my soul...forever loving things tattered, worn, rusted...oh so many stories they have to tell...I know you understand Robin.

Thanks for bringing the child back to me today...for that I am truly grateful! Bless you!
