The Ahhhmazing Patricia van Essche

I opened my email Sunday night to find theee most beautiful illustrations from the most talented Patricia van Essche...

And finally, an Hermes beach towel pour moi!

But best of all, something money can't buy, skinny minny, long legs...

If all of those gifts weren't beeeyond enough, look at the custom MRR Design frame she had Marnie make for me as well. Who's the lucky girl?

Kindness of PVE, the most talented illustrator in all the land. And, the most generous! I mean, who doesn't want to be immortalized in Lilly and a white bikini looking all svelte? And, my own virtual Hermes beach towel to boot! I can die happy...XXOO

  22. Is it wrong that I'm jealous (in the best possible way) about those illustrations? The one in the chair - To. Die. For. The profile. The attitude. The skinny legs. All completely fabulous.

    I've been toying with getting her to do an illustration of my family and this seals the deal. J'dore PVE.
