The french fairy sends greetings

If you've been following along my adventures, you know my heart has been strunk not only by cats, donkeys,old goats, one eyed pugs and one handy farm man, but also by my childlike counterpart, Thelma , who lives with her paints and her family in France.

My chartreuse is now three, and it dawned on me, she will posess the power to communicate in letters and maybe a blog of her own someday...Well, in good time, but for now, I am kept in touch with her life by her gracious mother who recently sent me pictures of Mlle. Thelma preparing for Christmas. She began her preparations way back in early November, and these pictures were good timing with my recent post about Father Christmas.

Look at that face, so much hope in it for the many important grandiose things in her head.

Quelle heartbreaker! Mlle. Thelma has a wonderful sense of theater. In that Santa hat she looks like Lara of Dr. Zhivago.

I know! That face, huh?

She is a lovely child, your little "french farie."
Ce Magnifique!

This is so sweet. I had to go back and read all about Mlle Thelma. You are very lucky to have this special tie to such a special little girl! It was very sweet of you to include the little story and all the extras for her. I have a daughter her age and I know how much they love to get things in the mail. Just think what the future may hold for both of you and your growing friendship! Very neat!

Thank you for reading! The farm and my art/writing keep me hopping, so might not respond immediately. Thank you for understanding. ~Katherine & Apifera ~
