TEENY-TINY


Who would believe all those grapevines would come to good use? 

Silly me - just assumed they supported the grapes for wine.

So here's my teeny-tiny grapevine tree for a rocking xmas time.

Happy holidays everyone!

MALCOLM APPROVES!

BLUE TRUFFLE
3" x 3" pastel
glass + 3" square gold scrolled frame (no matte)
private collector


Feeling a bit guilty after seeing all of Malcolm's holiday spirit.
(He told me to get with the program ... sigh)

So I created a truffle treat for a sweetie. 
Almost bite-size too, as a petite 3" square.

The best part is all shipping and taxes are 
inclusive - cheers!

MAN, CAN HE PARTY!

PARTYING MALCOLM

Didn't I tell you? 
Well Malcolm definitely got me into the holiday spirit! 

MALCOLM DOES SAN DIEGO!

MALCOLM
I met this little gentleman over Thanksgiving 
and he definitely was a charmer!

First he scoped out my joint, then decided 
he wanted to join me playing with my 
dolls - so very artistic!

And definitely was a party-kind-of-guy (see above).
