For Our Lovely Sorceress, Resa

Little birdies know this that month is the one when our Sensational Sorceress of Silk, our Goddess of the Graffiti, our friend and fellow blogger was brought into the world.  The exact date remains unknown so our little group made up of Gigi, from Rethinking Life, Beth from I didn’t have my glasses on…, Holly, from House of Heart and me decided that we would celebrate our friend today. Mid-month should keep us safe, right?

Resa brings nothing but joy to us all through her blogs Graffiti, Lux Art and More, as well as her impossibly beautiful gowns at Art Gowns.  She has made us all gorgeous as her AGM models and created wondrous stories to go with her wonderful drawings.

She adds sparkle to the world and I could not think of any better image to represent her than fireworks!

My dear Sorceress, from me all of us, we wish you a most wonderful and happy birthday! (Not your AGMs, but hey, this is my bouquet to you!)

Lotsa love,



Advent Calendar – Day 11

In the spirit of Christmas and the Advent Calendar that has been revamped and re-purposed in myriad ways, I have decided to do one of another sort.  Instead of taking one chocolate per day (or wine or whatever goodie is in vogue) or adding one item into a box to donate for a good cause (a very good thing, indeed) I have chosen to send a little love to my favourite blogs.

Day 11 – Graffiti Lux and Murals AND Queen’s End

Resa McConaghy is one busy woman!  Not only is she a costume designer by day, she is also a photographer, a writer and creates the most gorgeous art gowns, evah!  (Click on her name to go to her website and drool away.  I promise you, you have never seen such magical dresses.)

We follow a few blogs in common – most notably, A Frank Angle and have bantered over songs in his musicals regularly.  I suppose I’ll have to give him credit for this one, too 😉

Queen’s End blog is, I would say, more dedicated to her writing.  Speaking of which, I have her book “Nine Black Lives” downloaded and, when I get a chance to sit down for more than fifteen minutes, will read it.

Where I first got to know Resa is from her Graffiti blog where she shares wonderful street art, not only from her home towns of Toronto and Winnipeg, but from wherever she travels.  Resa will also accept submissions (and I now find myself paying more attention to the ones in Montreal than ever before; determined to one day send her some…) and will share them.

Resa is one creative, sexy, glamourous lady!
