the cuppa cuppa tree


this morning i was feeling scatterbrained and not much more than an occupant of space, and then i found out why! i was already hard at play somewhere else. i went over to bella's world to say hello, and to my great surprise discovered i was already there! i was dawdling on a tree swing, holding my treasured coffee cups and wearing my favorite rose and hat. bella even put me in the right place - surrounded by friends, but on the periphery, lost in my own world and gazing at something in the sky. just where i'm the happiest. bella is on the left, giggling over a big cuppa. ces, the brilliant abecedarian illustrator who has a fondness for tossing brightly colored dishes in trees, is celebrating over an even bigger cuppa in the middle.

thank you, bella, for this irreplaceable drawing and for sharing your talent and friendship with me. from now on, when i look at this picture, i will operate under the illusion that i'm as sweet as this girl in the cuppa cuppa tree.

i wish i were as cute as a button. not so! i'm going to put this drawing on the wall and look at it whenever i get in a chronic grumbling mood, which is often. bella's drawings are full of happy goodness - i never leave her blog without a smile on my face. her talent is amazing and so is she.

I am now an unnatural shade of red. I can feel it. I am so honored to be featured on one of your posts, and your reception is more than I ever imagined. Thank you, sweetness!

And yes, you ARE cute as a button!

I agree, you are cute as a button. Look at you precariously balancing the cups while balancing on the swing. How talented you are!. Isn't Bella the best?! This is pure delight.

"not much more than an occupant of space" could so describe so many of my mornings.
