Francophile Friday : Catch Me If You Can


Paris Pets illustration : Catch the Kitty, Frenchie (Illustration © Shell-Sherree)

When you're taking a leap of faith, it's handy to have someone you trust with a safety net.

Today's illustration sees our intrepid travelling kitty cat and her French bulldog friend navigating a less-than-graceful landing of our magic carpet in Paris. Some might say 'clumsy' but unless they've tried setting a rug down on a rooftop while avoiding potted geraniums, pigeons and poo ~ well, walk a mile in those stilettos and try not teeter-tottering, too.

So come, let us lend a hand and each grab an edge ~ though on second thoughts, this fluffball looks well skilled in handling her dismounts and landing on all paws.  What's the bet she nets perfect scores.  And on that note ...

Happy Fluffy Francophile Friday to you!

PS:  For your animal-loving, Paris-loving friends, please take a squiz at the prints, stationery and homewares via my store menu links.  Merci, grazie, thank you.


Fashionable Friday : Camels, Kitties and Kate Spade New York

Ask this camel for directions and you'll end up at Kate Spade New York.  It's an oasis for your inner fun lover, you know.

Water isn't the only essential in life.  Not taking oneself too seriously is right up there, too.  Today's fashion illustration draws inspiration from the Spring 2017 campaign of this whimsical brand.  I'm not sure how alluring it smells, but it's cute, it's bright and full of smiles.  Open one of those bags and you might even find cubes of sugar and a glass of mint tea. Come, sip a while with me.  And on that note ...

Happy Fashionable Friday to you!

Fashionable Friday : Vintage Glam Hat Pat

All for one and one for all !

Today's illustration has us ready to join the three Muskateers ~ hang on .... four Muskateers ~ and make it an even five plus one.  Puss in Boots would be right at home.

I love drawing vintage glam.  Frankly, it's easier for me to illustrate it than to source and wear it.  But wouldn't it be fun to harness your inner actress, muster your Golden Age of Hollywood, sally forth in your finery and have people wondering if you're taking a lunch break from a film set nearby? Yes, it would.  It honest to goodness would.  And on that note ...

Happy Fashionable Friday to you!


Fashionable Friday : Pink Cloud Oscar Pyjamas

Walking around with your head in the clouds can be a dangerously happy thing ... so is wearing them.

Today's Fashion & Fluffballs illustration shows us lolling around days later in an Oscars-appropriate fluffy pink gown that's one part organza, one part tulle and one part fairy floss/cotton candy/Barbe à Papa.  Clearly we need a bigger lounge and pyjamas. And on that note ...

Happy Fashionable Friday to you !

Francophile Friday : Feeling Rosy by the Eiffel Tower

What could be more beautiful than an armful of roses?

An armful of roses and a kitten.  Kittens make everything better.  Even the illustrated ones.  Oh, what the heck.  Let's throw in Paris and the Eiffel Tower as well.  In for a penny, in for a franc. {Frexit, anybody?  Time will tell.}

May your weekend be every bit as rosy as this and more.  And on that note ...

Happy Francophile Friday to you !

Where there's manure, there's a pony !

Ever the optimist {and annoyingly to some, I might add}, when life shovels up clods that are on the nose, I will always look for the bright side ~ even if I have to dig around a bit to find it.   Call me stubborn and pass the Kate Spade.

Today's illustration finds us languishing in an aqua vision of fluffiness on a tufted purple velvet ottoman in a bucolic corner of countryside ~ as you do.  I think there's a certain romance to being barefooted and impractical.  How about you?  And on that note ...

Happy Fashionable Friday to you !

Fashion & Fluffballs Friday : I Dream of Jean-y

I'm not sure we could squoosh ourselves into Jeannie's bottle, but we can aspire to some Jeannie-esque hair.

When I was little {littler}, I adored I Dream of Jeannie.  My most adored PJs were pink and white spotted, with a top akin to hers.  If I could find her harem-styled outfit for a fancy dress costume today, I'd still want to take it for a spin ~ albeit with a diaphanous scarf draped strategically where a six pack will never be.

For lounging around in today's illustration, however, I've chosen something muffin-top friendly plus boyfriend jeans, being far more conducive to kitty climbing than harem pants.  The very thought makes my eyes water.  Aieee!  And on that note ....

Happy Fashion & Fluffballs Friday to you !
