I love Peter Rabbit~
I loved the movie about Beatrix Potter~
And I think I would have loved her~Beatrix Potter..I was amazed ,when I read the tale of Peter Rabbit to Noah this week he had no clue who PR was!
This from the child that has every book imaginable..
I think Peter is out of favor here in QC.
In fact Jacques had never heard of him before me..
He said Peter Rabbit was not part of his French culture growing up..
I am French but my parents were bilingual..so perhaps that is why I had heard of him..
I am easily infatuated by artistic people.
Much more so..than financial people.
Or very technical people.
I admire them..I am in awe of them..I married one..
But I actually fall a little bit in love ..in a different way..with artistic ,creative people..photographers,artists,musicians,chefs.
My mom was a true artist..thus the love affair~♥
And the little wannabe part of me.
But I am not loose enough..too organized..too tidy..can't relax if my immediate surroundings are not..en ligne.
I was not always like that..when I started dating my husband..much to the concern of my dad..but my mom's 100% approval..
my dad actually told my husband....:"Have a look at her room..you will need a compass to dierct yourself once you walk in."
It was true.
My room had a black wall, a white wall and some kind of psychadelic black and white wallpaper..a single bed against that wall..and some kind of furry black throw..
most of my clothes were on the floor..a whirlwind..
I was 19.And this was 42 years ago..
My mom did everything for me..I am ashamed to say..she even made my bed as I sauntered off to university.McGill.
Marrying an engineer..made me re- assess my habits..
I could tell you 100 funny..now they are.. stories..that actually made me cry 41 years ago..
But w/ the years..I became ..a tidy nut.
So the artist flew away.
That's why I love...artists..most of the ones I have met..and gotten to know.. don't care about tidy..I am not generalizing..these are the artists I have come to know..could be very different for the artists you know..
And my mom was super tidy..but she had left her art behind..so many years before I knew her.
I love the stuff everywhere.. the art room that has paint and paintboxes ..and canvases..and LIGHT everywhere.
Pastel dust here and there.. oil on the floor..cookbooks that have pages turned and dirty..art stuck to the walls.I just can't function that way.
Wondering if Beatrix was that inclined..
Speaking of artists..Amy at UTryIt~ made me fall in love w/ a little Easter cookie scene she created..
I knew I had to make some to pop into the boys baskets..I like making the things that go in their baskets..
These cookie vignettes..I am wrapping individually..They have their own stand after all.
I made my regular sugar cookies..I had Matcha..the sprinkles..everything..so I was good to go apart from the Lindt bunnies..I have a small silicone mold..but the bunnies were just a bit samller and I wanted to make them like Amy did.
Plus a Lindt at Easter.is like a Laura Secord treat at Easter~
I couldn't add a flower in the bunnies ear..nor could I add roses..they are BOYS after all as they like to tell me.
But I am thinking of dollying one up for Donella if I see her.. or I will ask Myène if Giu is now too old for these.
You can let your imagination run wild..
Amy was kind enough to even include a video..Amy THANK you for sharing these ADORABLE Easter treats with us..
I am paying it forward for those who would have missed these;)
