Winter Retreat....

 


“That perfect tranquillity of life, which is nowhere to be found but in retreat, a faithful friend and a good library”

See you in a while dear reader and friend....let the wintery winds sing...

Oh my sweet one, I too am enjoying this retreat I am on. To read, to dream and then attempt to create, it is all so soothing. And one must have the song of winter to lull us into this dream state.

I will be thinking of you. I am sipping on CHOCOLATE and STRAWBERRY TEA at the moment, and it is perfect to help lull me into a state of winter.

DUTCHESS! YOU CAME TO NOWHERE! See me and Balzac? It is rather cold up in that hot air balloon, but we just wanted to look for our dear friends.

I will be drawing more these days and hope to contribute to what I felt was my favorite part about illustrating: playing with all of you dear hearts.
