Miss A. (my cousin)


This is the bedroom/studio/workspace of my cousin, Miss A. (sister to THIS COUSIN that got married a couple summers ago)
She is an artist, remember her name because clearly she will be quite famous one day for her wondrous ways and endearing, charming imagination.
She's like a pixie in the flesh creeping out of the woods to drop some beauty into our laps.
Feast your eyes and give her credit if you copy any of the photos to your blogs or pinterest board or whatever.











THIS is some of her work, ink and water color.
Magical, is it not?











Self portrait.


The dolls, the leaves, the tree branch over her bed, the paper stars...her creativity never ends. Her room is like an Anthropologie display, times 10, plus magic. I've been wanting to blog about it for a while now and I'm so happy I finally got around to snapping some photos whilst I was visiting back at our old home...because...

My Big Sis HAD HER BABY!!! The family would like to keep their privacy so I am quite sad to say that I am not posting pics or details as far as names and such BUT I can tell you that I made it back in time to be there for the birth. It was only about 3 and 1/2 hours of labor at home in a birthing pool, it was beautiful and perfect and no complications and it was a boy. He is wonderful and darling and I want to eat him up. The new midwife was amazing and I was so happy with her care for my sis. The Kidlet's Cousin was there for the last 20-30 minutes and kept rubbing and patting her head saying, "you are having very hard work mama, you can do it, you are so strong, so brave!" And periodically said, "Deeeeep breaths". I spent most of the time bent over the edge of the pool pushing on her lower back
(Thank God it was only 3 hours ish this time, my arms were shaking by the end!!!)

Anywho, thank you all for your prayers for my sister, she was so appreciative of them and everything has come out beautifully!

Lovies and Lyrics,

Congrats to your sister!

The Big Sis said...

thanks, sis, you've been such a help. I can't even imagine the little one's birth without you being there. Love you so much.

...and you're right...Angela is a fairy or a wood sprite! If I discovered one day that she had pointed ears I might not think a thing of it, it would make sense. Such a lovely person.

EEEE! You commented on my blog!!!!! I'm so excited, pretty sure this is a first!

Thank YOU for letting me be there! You're my big sis and I love you, you will never understand (and I don't mean that in a condescending or critical way...just stating facts) the love and adoration that a little sister has for her big least THIS little sis for YOU! I would probably walk on hot coals if you needed me to. Love you my dearling.

To everyone else, thank you lovely ladies, I will pass your congrats on to you. It's pretty much killing me not to post pics of him and his adorable face...but I'm trying to be respectful. Trust me though, I'd be honest if he wasn't cute (The Kidlet was actually quite homely when he was born, much to my dismay...but clearly he "cuted up" eventually)

Congratulations to your sister! And so sweet to read your words of sisterly love for her! We big sisters have our doubts sometimes.

Your pictures of Angela's personal space are amazing, as is her decorating style! :)
