Amazing Anita ~ Castles, Crowns and Cottages

  


This is part of my saying thank-you to my American friends ...  first there was gorgeous Karina and now I would like to acknowledge ......  Anita of "Castles, Crowns and Cottages" .... This amazing, beautiful lady in white at the harp ..... the one who is constantly vibrant, happy and so full of life .... the one who comments on your blog and you feel happy for the rest of the day because Anita has visited with her beautiful words and is genuinely interested in everyone!  I am in awe that she gets around to all of us to leave comments that instil a depth of appreciation that I know you all understand ... it makes us feel special and that is a true gift indeed ...


 



I know Anita loves crowns as I do .... and this wedgwood one is perfect for her ....





This is Anita's favourite castle in France, Chateau de la Reine ....




The gorgeous Carolyn Quartermaine script fabric with the twinkling chandelier, I think, is something that Anita would love .... whimsy, elegance and the French touch .... Anita is a French immersion teacher and has an amazing gift to be able to impart knowledge to our younger generation. 


Anita also sketches these exquisite pieces ..... the above one of my favourite queen "Marie Antoinette".  How talented she is but I also know how humble ...


I am in awe of her talent, skill and her ability to send beautiful thoughts, friendship and love across the globe ....



I think the glittering crown is perfect for Anita and she is Audrey Hepburn the 2nd!  I thank her for her friendship and cherish it immensely .....




Anita ..... you are AMAZING .... the threads of your friendship and spirit are spread throughout the globe....

Thank-you ... your friend M.A. the 2nd
