Wishful thinking ...

Today is Pomme's fifth birthday. 


Pomme is the grandson of 'Papsea,' who organises mighty big yacht races all around the world. Pomme is also my godson, and loves bobbing up and down in the waves. Indeed, he is an intrepid sailor always ready to discover new lands.



Seeing there's a big birthday out there on the high seas, it seemed fitting that for Wishcasting Wednesday (Yes I am aware that it's Thursday today, but wanting it finished for yesterday was a severe case of wishful thinking ;-), I wish to give my first little sailboat* to Pomme.


It's not just any sailboat. Although… it might not win the America's Cup … being paper maché 'n' all. However, woven into its billowy sails are magical dreams that sail out into the air ahead of you with the gentle puff of each and every tiny zephyr.


On the great big ocean of life, Pomme, may you find the confidence to ride each big wave, navigate uncharted lands and always arrive safely home to shore.


 avec tout mon amour

  1. Ange,
    I love this little sailboat. Love the lettering on the gossamer sail... the script, the placement of letters in the DREAMS 05, and the uncial DREAM in tone on tone... love, love, love! What type of paint did you use to do the lettering on this light fabric, may I ask? I am sure Pomme will love his gift!
