"It Was All Very Splendid...

...and the poor, kind-hearted mother cried for joy."
5x7
Playing around with another art card. This one is the 3 of hearts and the topic was specimen. It didn't turn out quite the way I envisioned it---the fairy baby doesn't look as much like an oddity as I had planned but that's OK. I just love the way the mother is looking at her baby. Doesn't she look so proud? Well, I must go and tuck my little one in bed. She is having a slumber party of sorts with her cousins and I have let them stay up late. Hope this doesn't backfire on me tomorrow!
Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend,
Tricia

Well, it may not be quite what you pictured with your mind's eye, but I love it! It's delightful.
I've really enjoyed my visit to your blog. Your artwork, the thrifted treasure and the dollhouse were all fun to see and read about.
I've enjoyed reading your comments in Merryville too. Thank you.

I also love that you can see part of the rundown wooden house behind the backdrop. Was it a traveling photogapher? She is in her best dress but still standing in the dirt. Beautiful photo.
