Family and such

Great high blue skies these days. Like the open palm of a departing hand, September is retiring… unwrapping as it departs the colors of coppers and golds. September takes leave and disappears into the miasma of the last horizon. Then the other day while I was pruning the holly hedges that surround our little white cottage, the last winds of summer let loose unleashing the first gusts of autumn. It provoked a shower of leaves... leaves that spread out all over the garden floors in a sudden magical wave of enchantment, and crawled onto the porch and inside the garage with the crimsoned crinkled sound of pure delight. I heard a whistle, a song, a lament... saw those mysterious deep shaded trees, the riotous unconquerable privets and bushes and gnarly trees at the edge of the garden, and I knew... oh yes, it is definitely autumn around here. And it cannot be any more pleasant, or amusing, or magical... 


You see, some very special people came to visit out little white cottage this week… 


Listening to the scurry of little feet and the jingle bells of children’s laughter round the house… 


Then we all got together for two days and a night... 


Sons and daughters, mommies and daddies, uncles and aunts, lovely little fairy cousins and silly mimas and old papas… we all got together and celebrated our togetherness…

  
With laughter and telling tales and dancing with karaoke video games
 Fairies and princesses came to celebrate... 


And who would have thought of doing nothing else but engaging in the marry making of fairies and little mischievous witches?  Cause oh yes, witches came to celebrate too!


One by one down the stairs they came... 


They danced and rode their brooms
half-naked under the full moon...
Yippee!


We hugged we squeezed we kissed...

Our littlest fairy.  Isn't she just adorable!



 And dressed alike...


 To visit the Aquarium...


Then all of a sudden at the Aquarium we all discovered that little Pebbles had somehow decided she rather liked wearing her shirt backwards…. The surprise on big cousin's face says it all!  We couldn't really tell when exactly did little Pebbles had done this...  you go figure ;)


Oh oh and can I share something amazing with you? A new line of makeup from Younique, which I was introduced to by my daughter Cindy, who just recently became a presenter for these products. I’m totally heads over heels with their products, particularly their mascara, which it gives you lashes you would never thought you could have… see what I mean.  Hard to believe these are my real lashes… 


I was so impressed with this product I had to ordered it immediately… forget about those faux eyelashes, which, by the way, I have never ever used, nor will ever wear.  This product, all natural, with 100 percent natural fibers taken from Green Tea would extend your very own lashes by 300 percent and make them look fuller and longer than you’d ever dreamed of. The name of this mascara is Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes and you can get them easily on her website.  Click HERE, and tell her I sent you.

Thank you for visiting my friend!

  2. oh Fall has arrived for you, you must be so relieved from the heat, does it feel deliciously wonderful?
    Oh Cielo, I wish you were My Titi, that's the Latin version for ''aunt'' as you must know.....or my cousin, or neighbour, why aren't enchantress's like you spread out more evenly across the globe? the world would be so much more fun. Those girls must have had such fun and delights to keep in their memories forever.
