I love how all of your work is so recognizable. I never wonder who did it when it is one of yours. Lovely, lovey work.

What an elegant witch. She brings nursery rhymes and fairy tales to mind. "pussy said to the owl,'what an elegant fowl'" and, my favourite line from The Wizard of Oz,"only wicked witches are ugly my dear".

PG, Griselda is superb! Just as I was looking at her marvelous close-ups, I began to hear fireworks! Not for Halloween, but to celebrate an annual pre-NYC marathon supper that is served in nearby Central Park.

I just wanted to think that those fireworks to honor the debut of Griselda. Yes, her footgear is the biz!

Happy Halloween to you, and may the spirits move you to continue your marvelous creativity! xo

HOW lovely!! She's absolutely fabulous. You have such talent AND endurance to create these wonderful characters. Hmmmm....I think I have boots similar to hers!

LOL!

Chrissie said...

Wow - she's so, so ... witchy! And, like everyone else, I adore her wee boots - what a wonderful piece of craftsmanship.

p.s my favourite joke -
"What's the difference between a witch and a Mars Bar?".

"A witch doesn't get stuck to the roof of your mouth". ..... sorry ......
