remove glitter with play dough!
i have been told, more than once, but less than a million times
that people in my presence
inexplicably end up with glitter
stuck to them or on their food or in unexpectedly odd places
or see traces of it stuck to my face or hair or feet
while it is true that i do enjoy a great love
of the sparkling wonder that is glitter
i know there are those of you
who may need an easy way
to rid yourself, or your things, or your cake, or your abode
of all that remains
i have a fine gift for you
an easy and magical method to clean it up
you are welcome.
clearing up glitter can be tough. it turns out that there’s one easy way to get rid of those sparkles that spread everywhere. just grab some play dough and press it over the affected areas. that’s pretty much it.

interior updating work has begun
someone has a whimsical creative streak
and one of these chairs is not like the others.

i love that this family has embraced the fun in life.
“life goes by fast. enjoy it. calm down. it’s all funny.”
note to this townie and his car
who’ve made so many smile:
Shout out to the person driving the smart car that looks like a little tykes cozy coupe!
Everyone loves it and it brings all of the smiles and laughs every time you are spotted! 🙂
“whimsy doesn’t care if you are the driver or the passenger; all that matters is that you are on your way.”
as the snowfall arrives
there is a soft quiet
a world of white outside
the cottage is filled with color
the center of the snow globe
i’m clearly drawn to whimsical animal art
that is the wing of a peacock kite you see in the upper left corner.
“laughter is the sun that drives winter from the human face.”

whipple-scrumptious fudgemallow delight
it’s almost easter – a great time to make wonka’s whipple-scrumptious fudgemallow delight with the chiddlers then?!
how to make a truly whipple-scrumptious sauce
for your ice cream sundae:
you will need:
an adult to help you
a large bowl of your favourite ice cream ready in the fridge
60g dark chocolate
1 cadbury’s crunchie or similar chocolate bar
80g dark brown sugar
150ml double cream
what you need to do:
break the chocolate and the crunchie into large chunks
and set to one side.
in a saucepan, over a low heat, melt together
the butter, sugar and cream.
stir until all the sugar is dissolved.
turn the heat up and continue stirring for 10 minutes.
be careful, as it gets very hot and can splutter.
use a very long wooden spoon or a tall adult with a long arm.
turn the heat down again.
get your bowl of ice-cream from the fridge.
put the marshmallows, chocolate and crunchie into the saucepan,
stir around once and pour over your ice-cream.
