Simply Iowa Potion....

I was working on Sweet Peg's Memory Tree...all afternoon... and there were a few things, I wanted to apply...but couldn't figure out a way to do it... I needed teeny, tiny vials...to attach, to the Tree... but...I found a really small one...that she can actually open, and on occasion, get a 'whiff' of the shop...Peg lives far away... so when she wants a little reminder....it'll be in the little bottle!{I gotta tell ya... it truly smells exactly like the shop...I love it...Peg will do her usual, over exerted, from the depths of her bowel, gaggy cough...she does when working in a Sweet Annie, Mega Dusty, Cob Webbed, Mouse Turded area...as she sniffs down memory lane...
{tee hee!}
Ingredients...
Sweet Annie...Lily of the Valley, {dried, from the Spring Sale} Moss... 2 strands of my hair... a pin and needle...{stress...hence...the hair, and pins and needles...} a tiny Christmas bead, from a Vintage Garland....{Christmas, Year 'round, ya know}.... mouse chewed candy wrapper... dust,{ from a 150 year old Farm Cupboard}... Vintage Lace Fragment... 1880's Crib Quilt Fragment...
{Simply Iowa raised, Cookie Fed, dried} Mouse Turd.
The bottle is corked, and bound, with a piece of French Toile, and a jeweled Heart...
a Perfect Simply Iowa Potion... gently shake...pop the Toile...and sniff...
I think Peg will like it...

Oh Sharon...
I told you, The Mad Hatter and I, have 'Muchness' in common...and where else, but the 'Rabbit Hole', could this all be dreamed....Give me enough time, and I'll bet I could make a cake, to make you BIG...and who knows... add a little of that magic water, that runs through the Old Fountain, in the greenhouse... to the Mystical Potion, in the little bottle... and... it could make you small...and God only knows, what else...oh dear...{I've always sworn, there is something amazing in that water...everything, that resides in it, thrives, beyond belief...}
Thanks for visiting... and, I'm not sure a Nuthouse would take us in... we may have to create our own...wait a minute...we already live in one! Yeah!
Merry Christmas...
Love to You...
