Good Morning!

My dear little box turtle says Hi to all you out there in bloggy world. XD

He's one of those creatures that make you smile even if he's not smiling. I believe he is spoiled now, seeing as he loves his head petted, a smile a mile wide when you do. :)
Mr Walkingstone's a sweetie. 

Then there's this fella, hahaha
*takes a deep breath* Bilbo Darcy Gamgee Tilney, for short we call him Bertie.
He is an opera singer....with some Darth Vader theme thrown in there somehow. 
He's spoiled too, just as prone to make you smile, and make you scratch his head....

Well, that's all i have time for, i'm off the music camp! 


Au Revoir!

El Dorado, a book review... Or! I shall try to keep my head on and not just squeal and give spoilers.



                       
  PROCEED 
NO FURTHER.

MOVE THEE NOT A STEP.
IF YOU HAVE NOT READ THE SCARLET PIMPERNEL, OR YOU DO NOT KNOW THE IDENTITY OF THE SCARLET PIMPERNEL.
TURN AROUND. 



Okay.... *suspicious glance* You may pass.

*Sigh*

I recently read El Dorado By Baroness Orczy. It was amazing... yeah that all you need to know.
GET IT AND READ IT.


Random gorgeous picture...
LOL...


I CANNOT TRUST MYSELF.

*SPOILERS AHEAD.* 
Shall we carry on now?



OH MY GOODNESS.

THE "FEELS" IN THIS BOOK.

EVERYTHING GOES WRONNNNNNNNNNNNNNG.....


PERCY IS CAUGHT....REALLY, THIS TIME

All in trying to rescue the Dauphin, He is quite caught....thanks Armand....had to go and flippin' fall in love.

ERMIGARSH.
THEY'RE SOOOOO CUTE.

Jeanne and Armand. EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEk
I found a picture that resembles them.
 This is SOOOOO Jeanne amd Armand!  #Eldorado\
Hehehehhehee

Might i just say, i almost forgive Armand for his treachery. 

Almost.

Percy forgives him....so i suppose i should.
I love Percy, ermigarsh.


Poor Margot. C H A U V E L I N, Monsieur Chambertin....
Was soooooo spookishly aggravating. 
He just popped up, right when Armand was trying to get to Jeanne, like "Hullo! I've got you now!"
*shivers* 
CREEPY.

 

I believe they crossed Chauvelin with Heron in the movie.. Making a completely intolerable creature.


EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEK

THE End OF THE BOOK WAS SOOOO....NERVERACKING. 

But i don't know why.... i mean Percy is always supposed to survive...
It was just BAM everything happened. 
 
But this is his way.
XD
I loved this book, i'd read again but i'd surely cry this time.







YOU MUST READ THIS BOOK. 

The fop

Before the Rain

*Insert Peter Rabbit Soundtrack.*



Anyways, despite my declaration i made at the beginning of the day....it rained. 
Mocking me no doubt...i was going to paint more than just one thing today.

So you walk out of the picket fence and all the Reds rush up and mob you...they're the bandits of the birds.
The rest is mostly Crepe Myrtles , Roses, and ducks. 









Happy hearts everywhere!

The dragonfly posed. 
He was not there two seconds before i snapped the photo, but he photobombed. 
Congrats Dragonfly, you can be famous now, you're on the internet. 



Good night me dearies!


A Table Fit For A Fangirl.

So hi!!! I thought i'd let you in on some of the fangirlish fun that i've been up to today!
Haha, mission: Bingley Expectations, paint a table....
XD
Quote,
 "Yes, all of them, I think. They all paint tables, cover screens, and net purses. I scarcely know any one who cannot do all this, and I am sure I never heard a young lady spoken of for the first time, without being informed that she was very accomplished."

So maybe i'm not completely, but i am trying. That plus Miss Bingley's definition, and then on top Mr Darcy's. Sheesh, i'm a busy girl. XD

I painted a table!



 A SCARLET PIMPERNEL TABLE


Step one: Paint table.
no really, paint the table white.
I did this this morning while it was threatening to rain, i have amazing timing for bad situations.
It looked very good! No rain until it was almost entirely dry...and then i started drizzling so it dragged it in. 

Step two: Make or find a design that you want. 
I did pimpernels, two different sizes, one BIG for the middle, but not too big. And one Medium size for the edges. 
I decided to make stencils of the design that way i could just trace it onto the table. 
So step three was trace it...I did that! Sorry there is no picture. 
Here...a selfie instead. 
Whoops, missed....
:D
Red hair....there...who wants a face anyways.


Step four: Measure to the middle of your table, or just eyeball it. 


Step five:  Paint it, Scarlet Pimpernels are red, no pardon me, they are Scarlet. Actually they are more peachy round the petals and scarlet in the middle, but whatever.




Step six: Little flowers! Trace and paint those too. I did them in four different spots around the table, that was it is like a compass! Pimpernel Compass Table, haha i like that..





TA-DA!

One completed project!
Amazing non?

à bientôt! (no seriously, another post is coming soon!)
