This blog is perfect for winter time…as well as this season of flu! Even with a flu shot, I have been doing extra sleeping and laying around, just like these dear “Wee Folks”, as I tried to deal with a mutant form of the flu perhaps. The malaise and lethargy has been the hardest part since I like being busy. But then again, it’s the perfect opportunity to get inspired as one tries to emulate Salley! Thanks again for all your amazing blogs and inspirational ideas.
Everyone looks so cozy!!
How Beautiful Salley. You are an artist to the 10th Power.. Amazing work and details..
Love the little house on the cover of Wee Willie Winkie! =D
I loved seeing all of the close-ups of your sweet little ones. Thank you for posting them.
They are just precious, Salley! I am going to your Etsy shop to see what you have there. It is such fun to see the work of your hands and heart.
All these lovely wee folk are making me very sleepy … beautiful work 🙂 Wendy
