Artful Party

Today is the Artful Blogging party that is being hosted by Ms. ArtsyMama herself. It looks like there are a ton of people getting all creative today and that is so cool.
Some people are posting "how-to" guides of their crafts, or baking cakes, and holding discussions. For my part, I am going to share my finished Art Hat Doll and her history (because every Art Hat Doll has a story to tell, I am just sure of it!) I thought this would be a good post on this day, because every party needs party hats don't you think?

Meet Beatrice Bell

She is a lovely English girl who runs a flower shop near the train depot in Northhampton.

Because she see’s so much, (because after all Northhampton is such a busy, bustling place) and she knows who is buying flowers for whom, and who returned whose flowers, and who longs for flowers, and so on and so forth, she is well regarded far and wide for her ability to be discreet.

If you ask her how she knows something she will only giggle and say:
“Oh a little birdie told me…”
Beatrice has many suitors herself but she doesn’t confess which one she loves the most.
Except to him of course…

NOTE: I would like to thank My Bear of Very Little Brain, Mr. Pooh for being my model today. I know he would have much preferred to be eating honey and visiting with Piglet.
