The Science Experiment...

Dear Friends of The Tearoom,
Today's collage is for the challenge at Collage Obsession and our paperdoll daughter Victorienne is back!  She is such a curious little girl and so when I told her that the prompt at Collage Obsession was "Science", she wanted to be the one to conduct a science experiment!

She had a theory that she could turn perfume into music!  In spite of my skepticism, her experiment seems to have been a success!  She explains it to me and so I will try and explain it to you.  When she was doing her spelling lessons, she saw that the names of some flowers and scents contained the letters which are also the names of musical notes.  She built a machine from some of the things that her Daddy helped her find in the attic of The Tearoom.  When she added drops of perfume into the machine, the letters which were musical notes went to the gramophone to make music and the left over letters in the names of the scents and flowers left the process in the form of purple-colored smoke!  How did she come up with this?  I'm not sure, but perhaps she has a future career ahead of her as a scientist!

Breakfast Amongst the Flowers...

Today's collage is for the challenge at The Three Muses!  The prompt this week was to make a book cover collage or base your collage on a book.  I used an image I had of a lovely cookbook from the 1930's and added vintage images of flowers from my postcard collection to create a book from my imagination.  I don't know what this book is about, but I like the image it invokes of a warm summer morning, surrounded by flowers, enjoying soft boiled eggs, sourdough toast and fresh fruit!

Not So Sure

(Please click on the image in order to see it larger.)

Some of the members of The Ladies' Explorers Club of Upper Jam-Pot have entered The Butterfly Enclosure, in order to more closely examine some of the more exotic species kept there.  However, Lady Peony Petunia-Petal is not so sure.  It may come as some surprise, but I share Lady Peony's trepidation!  In as much as I like the way butterflies look and have used them in my artwork numerous times, I do not care for them to flutter around me and tend to avoid them!  I know how silly this is, but I've been a bit phobic of them for as long as I can remember!  I think I might be slowly getting over my silly fear and hope that doing artworks like this will help!

My collage today is for the challenge at Take A Word, where the prompt was "Black and White".  Some color was also allowed, so I hope the nice folks there will not mind that Black and White's cousins Charcoal, Sepia, Ecru, Espresso and Dust were invited to the party at The Tearoom today!  Images from Tumble Fish Studios of Mischief Circus and my own collection.

Cycling Through the Pansy Jungle

(My collage today is for the challenge at Collage Obsession, where the prompt this week was "Cycle.  All images from my collage today from my own personal collection, with the exception of the tricycle, which is from The Graphics Fairy.)

Dearest Friends of The Tearoom,
Even though there are still some small piles of snow on the ground here in The Land of The Tearoom, we know that spring is on it's way.  And, no one is more excited about the emerging springtime than Our Little Victorienne!  Although she can't yet ride her tricycle through the pansies, All Friends of The Tearoom should view this collage as being a view of a time to come...

(Victorienne says, "Won't you please click the image for a

Please keep checking back, as Victorienne has adventures galore in the Pansy Jungle, located in The Wilds of The Tearoom Porch, later this summer!  Also, keep watch for your introduction to a new member of Our Doll and Animal Family and a possible fashion show or two, as well!

An Easter Treat...

Wishing all Dear Friends of The Tearoom a Most Happy Easter!

These nice rabbits told me they would like to share their special Easter cake with you!  How nice of them!

It's been such a long time since I have posted here!  Our laptop had been experiencing some issues, which were resolved only last week.  So, I have a lot of catching up to do on many projects, not the least of which is my book project on Victorienne and a new collage sheet project!

Won't you please keep checking back as I post about all the new and fun goings-on in The Tearoom?
