Pink Ruffles and Birthday Girls

{Pink Ruffled Birthday Girls : ink pen and watercolour illustration by © Shell-Sherree}

Hot on the heels of last weekend's Paris balcony party, we're celebrating again.  {Or perhaps we never stopped ... } It was a birthday weekend Chez Shell ~ and it feels like it's been a birthday month, as I have several special girls in my life with birthdays during November! 

When I was drawing this illustration, two kitties wanted in on the action, so I let my pencil do its thing. Mine is not to question why ~ I just follow the magic. 

Belated as it may be {Sunday inexplicably drifted away on a melt of party ice}, please join us amongst the pale pink peonies and roses {thanks, dear sis!} for champagne, candles and fairy lights, dear friends and family {thank you all for being in my life, both near and far!} and the most amazing berry lemon cheesecake you could dream of {thanks, dear mum!}  In all the fun and frivolity, I forgot to take photos, oops {thanks dear dad for bringing the gear!} Maybe it's a sign I should do an illustrated version.  And on that note...

Happy Birthday to all of us, whenever yours happens to be!

    2. I do, Shell. I wish the party we imagine—the champagne, the pretty dresses, the gondola ride—was real.

      Sigh.

    3. We'll put that out to the universe and see what it comes up with, dear Petrea. I'll second your sigh...

  5. Well, I'm especially late to your birthday party (hope the card arrived on time at least). Let me add my birthday greetings to your bouquet of wishes—no less heartfelt for poor timing, I promise you! Sounds like you were properly fêted and I'm glad to see that another year in the hopper has diminished your wonderful sense of whimsy not one whit! xoxo

    1. You're late? Only fashionably so, dear Alexa!! And yes, your beautiful card has arrived, dear Alexa !! {Only just ~ but my bad as I've changed postal addresses and I'm tardy in notifying everyone, so it came via redirection but is safely in my hands!} Merci, ma chere ~ for your lovely wishes both there and here. :) x0

  6. In my world the best people are born in either November or June (great ruffles on the dress - highly whimsical)

  7. Happy-almost-a-month-late Birthday, Shell. The downside to following you on FB: forget to comment on the blog. I will do better, promise!

    The best peeps might be born in Nov or Jun BUT they aren't the best zodiac sign. :-)

    1. Thanks, dear Cali !! No apologies necessary ~ it's a labrinth out there ~ too hard to keep up with it all !

      Speaking of zodiac signs, when I looked up my compatible signs recently then looked up the three listed, my sign wasn't on their compatibility list. ??! No wonder unrequited love is alive and well in the world. :D

Merci, grazie, thank you for joining our conversation lounge. Your smile lights up the room. Even more beautifully than our crystal chandelier. x
