Here’s a wee quickie mini-birthdee review, in magic window form,
for your delight and delectation. As always, the Magic Windows series
is a portal into my world in snippets captured my my trusty telephone camera.
The full details (or as much as I can reveal) of my birthday adventures to
be revealed soonly, but for now: a little taste of some of the magic…
My dear friend Janette, confectioner extraordinaire created for me
this incredible birthday cake. I wish I could explain to you how delicious
it was, but honestly it left me bereft of words adequate to convey the
marvel of that perfect icing, those triple layers, the plump berries!
Totally divine. Janette is (well, partly) responsible for my calipygian
rump, as she has some amazing home-baked cookies or cakes
almost every time I see her! They are totally impossible to resist.
This fancy duckie was one of my very first birthday surprises, from my
friend Charity. I’m going to somehow attach her to my head for Easter!
Colin made me this sweet gumdrop tree, got me those gorgeous flowers
and both Tam Dao and Passage D’enfer! Can you believe it? He’s the best.
Sur le birthdee table: gorgeous roses from Steve + Emily and branch
shaped beeswax candles I bought last year at Tale of the Yak in Berkeley.
Pandora created this heartbreakingly beautiful St. Agnes doll for me
(better pictures soon, promise!) She carries a sword and a lamb,
and wears a glorious halo. Her tender breastplate can be lifted to reveal…
Her gorgeous innards! A sacred, saintly heart – and the tinest, most perfect
doll uterus and ovaries you’ll ever see! Before I received her, I had the
strangest dream: that my incisions had re-opened, the scars and stitches
dissolved, and my belly lay flayed open. I could see my uterus winking
at me through the opening: a grey pearl of dread at being so vulnerable.
I thought, “I had better call my doctor and tell him what’s happened..”
My sweet sweet Chad (aka. Mon Petit Fantome!)
sent me an incredible parcel filled with the very best loot
(details later!) Isn’t that doll the prettiest? You must go check
out Chad’s new Big Cartel shop – I want every single thing in it!
I’m crazy busy getting ready for the last Gadjo Disko, so action may be sparse
’round these parts for a short spell – but then! Mardi Gras glory will be upon us!
Mercy! Thank you to everyone for the sweet birthday wishes, I am humbled
by all the love and abundance in my life. I’m grateful for what you add to it.
