  1. How many delights in today's post!
    The watercolour, as delicate and beatiful as always. Congratulations.

  2. Love your flowery teacup, Carol--very sweet. I think I gained ten pounds just reading this post.

  3. Hey Carol! I know I've been completely MIA (and did you know I only noticed this week that you left all those comments on my flickr account, thank you! I've only just started to check it recently). Anyway, those are beautiful and how I miss being able to wander over to his shop. Pssst...and just so you know, it's Joyeux Noel. =)

    This is why I love receiving your post! Beautiful Buche Ispahan! Thank you ;)

  5. That buche Ispahan is a thing of beauty. You should paint it since you won't get to eat it.

  6. MARSI, what a good idea!
    I'm not sure I want to eat it...
    It's a little too pink for me.
    Now if it was caramel color that would be different.

  7. Um, as to your last comment, Ms. CarolG, you are the artist. You can make it more caramel colour if you want.

    But even if you do make it more caramel color, you still won't want to eat it - still too pink. I'm with you on this one.
    Does Pierre leak his new creations to the mini makers or are the mini makers just using corporate espionage to get them while they're new?

    Carol, your drawing is incredible as always!
    BTW, I just received the bandai's PH miniature collection, they are so cute.
    Thanks for the shout out, it's very nice of you :-)
    Hope to see you again soon...

  10. Yum. I love that red macaron in the cascade photo. Well all of them look delicious.

  11. I do hope you are not going to have a Mini Christmas as well. This mini thing is getting our of hand :)


Love hearing from you
