Fastest sale ever!

Just finished this little "flower girl" pixie and listed her today on Etsy, and wow! She's already sold! Thanks Kathy! I have another one already in the works, hope she sells as well. I think it helped that I mentioned it on twitter, it is easy to update quickly on there to tell about new items. So if anyone wants to know right away about my shop updates check it out if you can. Bye for now!

Thank you

I just wanted to give a very heartfelt thank you to everyone who commented on the loss of our kitty, Tigger. It meant so much that you all took the time to give your support and we really appreciate it. If Icould I would send you all a homemade choco chip cookie like the one below. It was good comfort food that's for sure. Bye for now.

Farewell my friend

Farewell my friend
Originally uploaded by bewitchedmagic
Time to say goodbye to a loyal and sweet friend, Tigger. When we first met you hardly ever meowed, but after we got another cat, you found your voice. In fact, you became the drill sargeant of the house. Meow, time to get up! Meow time to get on the treadmill! Meow, time to go to bed! You were the friendliest cat I knew. Like Will Rogers, you never met a person you didn't like. And you had such patience! You let Sabrina imprison you in her room while she read to you and gave you spa treatments. You liked to cuddle, but only when you felt like it. Life would have been boring without you, and we are so glad we got the chance to share our lives with you. Here's one last head butt and a kiss, goodbye my buddy.

All dolled up for a Valentine's Tea Party!

Here's the story of the Florence's Valentine Tea Party. She heard about the big blog events for Valentine's and couldn't wait to get started! First, she whipped up a batch of Valentine sugar

cookies, with the help of her best human friend Sabrina, and then she invited all her doll friends.
She called up Tina and Gracie and told them to get all dolled up! And of course, they did! Tina wore her best blue dress with a stunning whie floral hat. Florence wore a pretty little pink number. Gracie didn't like hats, but Florence said that was ok.
They all shared some cookies and some gossip and some laughter. Tina asked Flo where her sister Mary was. Flo told them that Mary and her friend were having a Valentine's Dance.
Mary held her dance at the cottage, and invited Beth, June and Bunnie. Mary wore her blue party dress, June had her fairy cosume and Beth wore her pink tea gown.
They had some tea and discussed the songs they would dance to. I was finally decided they would play some waltzes and a few polkas. Boy those polkas really wore them out!

June asked if they could have another tea party.
Mary said that would be delightful!

Beth was so worn out from dancing she asked Sabrina for a little help. She almost fainted, but Sabrina came to the rescue!
Well, I hope you enjoyed the Valentine parties, and please don't forget to leave a comment to win the doll faces and the pendant!
I will draw a name on Sunday evening at 6pm central time! Good luck! And don't forget to check out all the other parties, here and here!
Also, please check out my newest creations at Lollishops: Here is a larger version of the Louise pendant that you see above.
And here is a pendant with a "Petit Sweet" cupcake.
Last, but not least, are two new pixies I created,"Cheri and Louise". Here they are sightseeing in Paris. Tres Chic!!!
Bonjour! Have a Happy Valentine's Day!!

DesLauriers Look-alike Meter

I always wanted to know which one of us Sabrina looks more like, me or hubby. Now I know, but only by 3%. I kind of always thought that she was a pretty good blend! Bye for now!
