Mimi, if we manage to get together this summer, I'll bring you some lovely bits and pieces for your designs. :)

You are quite the amazing seamstress. Oh how lucky is Darla! The goatmother never makes me anything. Of course Ella would probably try to eat it if she did, but that is beside the point.

I think Darla needs some tasteful little tinkling bells tied to her ankles with ribbons! Such lovely outfits! It. Had. Better. Not. Rain.

Pricilla said...

Should she not be presented in white?
She is a debugoat after all....

Oh the charm of it all, I am quite overcome with envy. So is Lucky Nickel. Harrumph.
