9 Days!

I was going to call this post White Rabbit, then remembered it is a 60's song about drugs!
Tragedy averted.
My white rabbit has nothing to do with drugs, although her art puts me in a dreamlike state!

She's really the Tin Rabbit aka Ann Perry.
She makes the most AMAZING pillows, pockets & other various works of art! Her work is featured in the current issue of Somerset Life.

I'm lucky enough to have a few of Ann's wonderful creations in my home.
Ann's son Lance is a very talented artist in his own right. 
 His awesome art dolls are published in the current issue of Prims.

You can read more about Lance & his art on Crescent Hill Designs.

The apple didn't fall far from the tree!
I'm so excited because in 9 days Dawn & I will be in Nacogdoches
for the Tin Rabbit Sale!

Finally face to face, not phone to phone!
Don't you love it when real life & blog land intersect?

My little Indian Princess & Daddy made it home from their camp- out.  I've never seen a dirtier child! 
 I made her strip down at the back door & carried her straight to the shower. 
A dirty child is the sign of a good time!
I had to show you the pumpkin they carved on the trip, pretty cool huh?

I am so jealous! But excited for you and Dawn. I think Ann's work is so wonderful and am a fan myself. Have a wonderful time and take lots of photos.

Your Indian Princess and her Dad look like they had a perfect time together.

Yes, I know it's about drugs, but I love White Rabbit

oh The Tin Rabbit..her work is AMAZING! Can't wait to see more. And your daughter and her daddy are both adorable! TFS!

Beth Leintz said...

When you said "my white rabbit has nothing to do with drugs"- I thought you were going to say "the rabbit died"- remember that old way of saying you were pregnant?

That Lili is so pretty- she's going to be a classic beauty- even if she's covered in dirt.

Anne - Fiona and Twig said...

Oh, I wish I could be there!
Hmmm, I wonder if I'm off work?

Your lil' princess looks so happy!


Daphne Nicole & Lynda Cade said...

How exciting, her work is gorgeous!!! Adorable picture of you daughter and husband together, glad that had a good time!
PS. wanted to make sure that you got my email with my address!
Blessings~~~ Daphne

X(dirt) + Y(pretty little girl)= H2O(happy)!
See...I'm a whiz kid at math!
I'm also jealous...but let's just leave that one for the geniuses to formulate.

The Tin Rabbit sounds like a great place to go....wish Nacogdoches was just a tad closer to Katy ~ LOL!

Vicki said...

Ann is so talented. I love her work and her blog! Everything is just so darn pretty and so much inspiration there! Her son is so talented too!How exciting for you and Dawn?! I can't wait to see pictures from the trip. Speaking of trips...how great is it that your little one got Dad all to her self on a camp out? My daughter loves dates with Dad. Safe travels.

I wish I was going with you and Dawn!! What fun!

Try to convince her about you know what.

sissie said...

Hi Lisa,
Call me crazy but I always loved that song!!!

But I love the Tin Rabbit's beautiful artwork even more!!!

Your daughter is such a cutie and Mr. T&T ain't so bad himself!


time-worn interiors said...

You lucky little thing! I wanna go! I've always wanted to go to Ann's but it's never worked out for me!

Here's hoping you girls have the time of your life!! And buy some great stuff!

I still wanna go! :(

Still smiling over your White Rabbit comment... and loving that beautiful Rosette on the pillow!

Dawn ... The Bohemian

Jodie (everything vintage) said...

What IS it with you and Dawn? I'm drowning in my crocodile tears over here!!!!!
The kids better not love her more than they love me. Well, at least don't let me find out that they do...my heart will break!!!!
Plus... Make it clear to Kevin that nobody loves him ad much as I do!!!!!
Am I covering all of my territory here?
Oh. I forgot about YOU! ...
You and Dawn have lots of fun (but not too much fun without me) and think of me 24/7. Or at least tell me you did....
sadly signing off that I can't go play with y'all.

Jennie said...

Lisa! I hope you are well - I'm so enjoying your blog. Thank you for your class at Wicked Tea, I love Coven book. Take care!


Julia - "Vintage with Laces" said...

I would love to join you two, Lisa! If there just weren't all those thousands of miles between me an Texas. Sniff, sniff, sniff!!!
You girls go and have lots of fun!!! Just think a little bit of Dorthe and me who are so far away and never can play with you. Sniff, sniff, sniff!!!
Little princess and her Daddy look happy! They must have enjoyed their camping trip together. What did you and the boys do in the meanwhile?

Linda said...

This sounds like a wonderful time! I love Ann's work, it would be fun to meet her. I love her son's art, too! The photo of your husband and daughter is so adorable!

Miss Sandy said...

This is one time in my life that I would love to be the proverbial "third wheel" and get to hang out with you two fun gals! Have a safe trip and a great time!

Storybook Woods said...

Wow, that is some white rabbit. Beautiful. What I would give to be able to poke around your home!! Love the photo of your daughter and Hubby, soooo sweet xoxox Clarice

She Uses Her Words said...

Such gorgeous art! And I love the name White Rabbit! What can I say? I'm a child of the 60's. Have fun at the sale. Take Care, Karen

June said...

Lisa dirty or not, she is still the cutest little girl on the planet! Hubs isn't too bad either. hehe!

I love Ann. She is so talented. I didn't know about her son being an artist. His art dolls are wonderful! My keyboard is wet and slippery right now from viewing all of Ann's creations here. WOW, can she make beauty.

Will you give Dawn a hug for me? I love that girl. And then I want her to give YOU a hug for me, because just love you too.
And I want to thank you for lifting me with your words today that you left at my place. Thank you so much friend.
Love to you...

Charlene said...

ADORABLE!!!!!!!!!! I don't know who's happier L or Daddy!

Sandy & I had such a good time being with you today. We helped the economy in McKinney a lot today! Hope you & Dawn have a blast at Anne's. Give Dawn a huge hug for me. Hope to see you again soon. Hugs!

Lisa, back in the day, the old timers used to tell us that we had to eat a peck of dirt before we die.
Isn't it great! Dirty kids, you're right, looks like they had just the BEST time!

Anonymous said...

Can't wait to hear about your trip - you get to meet Dawn in person. I have to wait until May to see you both!

What wonderful memories your daughter will have...sharing a great time like she did with her daddy...it's wonderful when a father will do that kind of thing for and with his daughter.

Your blog is so very amazing...just love what you share.
Nice to get together with great friends isn't it ?

Beautiful art work! So glad you get to go to such an awesome show AND with a dear friend you met through blogging. What could be better? :)

So I am catching up on your blog and am just goig to respond to these first few posts right chere (did I say that riiight?). LOL trying to talk in my best Texas accent 'cuz I was born with it. :)

Okay, so I was sooooo intimidated to meet you and Cindy and the AMAZING CAN DO EVERYTHING Ann Denise that I felt like a total dud. I was telling Tom all the way over there how talented you all were and what if I didn't fit it, etc. etc. You are all so amazing and I can't wait to be in the midst of ya'll again.

Do you know that because of you I am now on the hunt for dried sunflower heads? LOL how cool is that thing!!!! But guess what..found them...where you might ask...Etsy of course! :)

Okay, not after a duck but do like that rat. :)

Nacogdoches!!! The Tin Rabbit is in Nacogdoches?!?!? You are kidding me...do you know how many times I have been there and NEVER knew that??? Do you hear the sound of me kicking myself??? LOL Another reason to come back soon for a visit. :)

Please give Dawn a hug for me and tell her I can't wait to meet her too.


Tammy said...

Congratulations and I am sooo jealous! I know you all will have such fun together. Can't wait to hear all about it. I love Tin Rabbit's work. It is feminine and so elegant.
Your little angel looks like her and daddy had a fun time.

Boxwood Cottage said...

Ohh Lisa I'm just catching up with your blog and commenting, I'm so very excited for you that you go to Ann's Open House today and there is not more I could wish for right now than joining you! Since I'm the lucky owner of some of Ann's amazingly beautiful creations after a private friendship swap we did last January, I so know how gorgeous her art is in reality and I'm sure she is just as wonderful in reality too. Yes I can't hide being jealous today but that didn't mean that I don't wish you an incredible great time, I certainly do and I hope you'll take lot's of pretty pictures from Ann and her magical home to share with us once you're back!
Enjoy! I'll be thinking @ you girls all day!
Warmest wishes from overseas!
xoxo~ Carola
