  3. Hi Salley and Rob, Seems that the @s I have for you are outdated… So I went to buy a ticket for Liberty and Justice yesterday and the screening was indeed sold out so I just watched it on the net. It’s wonderful – the enchantement of the sets, the charm of the music, the folktale heritage, the irony of the posters (Burma Shave) make the attraction of our goofball and deadly administration plausible.

  4. quel beau travail, quelle imagination ! votre univers est extraordinaire et exécuté avec grand talent. Merci pour tant de rêves. je rêverais d’être votre apprenti ! Rose

  5. Salley,
    I just got the book I ordered from you on Etsy. I’m so in awe of you. Thank you for inscribing it to my granddaughter, Bijou, and me. She’s only a year and a half, but we spent some time before bed looking at fairies. Your work is magic. ❤️
