TWO LEFT FEET



I've read and reread this page from Mrs. Trowbridge's journal. It's one of my favorites. I especially love the pages where she writes about her husband. Her love for Woodrow always shines through. I wish I could have watched them Dancing with the Stars... and the full moon on that special night.

Fantastic as always. I can't decide which I love more, the stories or the artwork! It is wonderful that I don't have to choose because I get to enjoy them both!!!I am in awe of your talents.

Wonderful! So sweet and enchanting...always a pleasure to drop by your site.
What do you use 4 making these beautiful illos? Is it acrylics, watercolor or digital?
or none of the above?
Just curious....
Love your work!

so touching - may Violet and Woodrow have many more dancing evenings...

(...though i worry that dancing on a stomach full of wormini slug slime might be unwise!)

You know it looks and sounds like they had a glorious evening, don't know about Woodrows choice for entree-slug slime,[ maybe the pond sauce helps it], but the Mushroom Inn seems perfect spot for celebrating.
