Peek-a-Boo I see You Sugar Plum


" Peek-a-Boo I See You ~ Sugar Plum "  Annabelle original 2012







One night, when the moon was full and the wood was warm and still Charlotte not being very sleepy to retire early to bed decided to take a stroll down the woodland path to pay a visit to her neighbour the Witch of Plum Wood Hollow. The usually dark path was bathed in moonlight now and Charlotte could see very clearly the beautiful moon flowers in the distance glimmer in the glow of the moon; their clove like scent intoxicating her hairy legs ,drawing her nearer to the witches' home.

Charlotte loved playing Peek-a-Boo just about everyday of the year but playing Peek- a Boo behind the Witches' ivy  and Moon Flower covered fence was her favourite place for on the other side of the fence lay one of the most enchanting gardens of the wood "Garden of Plum Wood Hollow ".
Under a Halloween Blue Moon the Midnight garden of white, silver and blue exploded in twinkling stars from heaven above and moon bug fireflies that had awakened from their secret sleepy flowery nests.There was something eternally mystical and magical about the Witch of Plum Wood Hollow's garden and behold in that very moment  Charlotte spied a patch of the most luscious plum velvet Fairytale Pumpkins she ever did see when suddenly she heard her name being called…"Charlotte……hello my dear, how have you been?I haven't seen you in such a very very, long time!
Charlotte was speechless and the witch of Plum Wood Hollow , a kind looking old gal dressed in the most appropriate colours of purple and black carried on talking. " I see you are admiring my Velvet Plum Fairytale Pumpkins ; ) .  I suppose you'd like one and maybe next year if you keep some of it's seeds, you too can have some of your very own Sugar Plum Whimsical Fairytale Pumpkins". Without a doubt in her mind , Charlotte excitedly answered, ' Oh, yes, I would luv one !"
 And so after picking out her favourite of the bunch Charlotte and the witch had tea; a cup of Lemon Verbena Tea home grown as you would have guessed from Plum Wood Hollow Garden.
The two ladies of the night shared in some organic gardening knowledge and lore and by the time the clock struck 2 the witch knew it would be best for Charlotte to stay with her and rest till the break of day.

Upon Charlotte's return home the next day, her first stop inside was to place her beautiful Plum Velvet Fairytale Pumpkin on her Victorian table and decorate it with a few mossy green and purple jewel beads to mimic  and remember the garden she had seen alight under a Full Blue Moon the night before. Too beautiful to share alone, she picked up the phone and called her friend Annabelle.

And so Annabelle loving the velvet plum colour of the Whimsical Fairytale Pumpkin was inspired to create more of the magical velvety gourds.

This Plum Velvet Fairytale Pumpkin is an Annabelle Original entirely hand sewn and soldered Charlotte Spider. I singed some mossy green organza fabric for the pumpkin leaves and added a few mossy green and purple beads.The natural pumpkin stem was glued in place and a Blue Charlotte A. Cavatica was hand sculpted and soldered .The beads are glass aquamarine and iridescent in colour.

Sugar Plum  and Charlotte look just lovely together in their Autumn Fall attire.

"For in an instance I did think I’d seen a zillion stars ablaze" When I had discovered the magical grove of fossilized crystals I thought I had seen stars. This is what it looked like only on the ground amongst the moss. Thanks to Zsaj for helping me interpret the scene I had discovered a few summers past.

Needed a break from woodburning and painting so I tried this lovely little toy{ Polyvore Digital Workshop } and created this collage. This is a great way for creating a virtual one before attempting a real mixed media collage, although this is art in itself. Thanks Cindy from "My Romantic Home "http://www.romantichome.blogspot.com/, for introducing this great little gadget. I think I'm hooked!

Another collage I created inspired by the poem "Twilight at Sea" I used dragonflies instead of birds...I luv them both but I adore how their gossamer wings catch the light. ~Annabelle

Twilight at Sea


The Twilight Hours like birds flew by,
As lightly and as free;
Ten thousand stars were in the sky,
Ten Thousand on the sea;
For every wave with dimpled face,
That leaped upon the air,
Had caught a star in its embrace,
And held it trembling there.
