New Wings for School

As a child I remember Mother Good Nectar. She was a real looker. I take after her.
She would always make me and my sister Purnetta the Strange, lovely wings
for fairy school each year. Now that I'm all grown up, I still like to
sport a new pair of wing this time of year!!! I also love the humans, Parda,
shoes and designer clothing. One must look spiffy for the school year.
Oh I 've put on a little weight since the high wire. To many nectar cakes
and honeyjoop, joop tea he he he!

Scribble's First Day

Hiya Wibblians-

I redid Scribbles. She is now a tiny little bug girl, instead of an old gnome person thingy. This is her first day of school, and she's getting dressed. It's taking a little longer because over the summer her feet got bigger than her shoes remembered. Oh well, she's a growing Do-Bug. Wish her luck today!

Wibbly Gazette #5 (Prompt)

Halloween Spooks
by Eleanor Dennis

Millions and billions and trillions of cats,
Cackling old witches in tall, funny hats,
Screech owls screeching from the fence post and tree-
It's Halloween time as plain as can be.
Dim spooky shadows go slithering by
As black bats and witches go riding the sky;
Get out your costume and join in the fun.
Don't let spooks scare you, and don't turn and run;
The scary old spooks are just Jerry and John
With Mom's old percales ripped up and pinned on.
So get out your costume and funny face too,
To keep folks from guessing that you are just you.

Hullo Fellow Wibblians-

Fall is almost upon us. And you know what that means? Wibbly Wobbly Wood will be hoppin' and a boppin' with all sorts of fun activities, from pumpkin pickin' to apple boppin.' And I'm sure more than a few of us will start out raking leaves, and end up jumping into them instead.

Here are the prompts for the next month:

Sept 21- Oct 4
What was your most favorite or not so favorite part about school starting up again in the fall? Using your Wibbly character, illustrate/create his or her hapinness or disgruntlement. Maybe illustrate some sort of classroom scene using your Wibbly character.

Oct 5- Oct 18
What are some of your favorite Fall childhood memories? Was it apple picking in a giant orchard, or picking out your favorite pumpkin in the endless rows of vines? Did you ever go for a hayride and accidentally get bumped off? Did you ever make candy or caramel apples, or popcorn balls? What do you think your Wibbly character would be doing for fall? Harvesting, decorating, madly sewing together a costume for the big Wibbly Woods Harvest Ball?

Oct 19-Oct 31
Wibbly Wobbly Woods is having it's annual, and first ever, mind you, Harvest Ball. Illustrate your character in a costume of his or her choice, and show a scene of what you plan to do at the ball. Are you going to be part of the band/orchestra? Are you in charge of bringing desserts, or are you going to be there helping to decorate? Or do you plan to make a muck of the apple cider and dance wildly all night long? How do you plan to help or participate with the Harvest Ball?

Looking most happily and forwardly to all your wonderful postings!

Back By Popular Demand...Walter and the Three Bears!!!

Before Walter moved to the Woods he had a part time job training elephants at the circus and his friends the three bears had an amazing high air balancing act! Goldilocks came to see the show. It was a big hit with the crowd. I drew this on a very long narrow piece of illustration board and it turns out it was too big to fit on the scanner so I had to scan it in two pieces....just pretend it is in one piece. ( I know a man who ran away from home when he was a teenager and joined the circus. He was a clown and drove the elephant truck. He said it was scary how the truck swayed back and forth from the weight of the elephants...they must have been dancing back there or something....I can just see elephants square dancing ;o) And as Walter is quite the lady's man (uh I mean dog), I thought you would all like to know that Walter is just as cute from the back as he is from the front (Walter is rolling his eyes as I write this and is demanding I remove that picture from the Internet!) I don't have photoshop or illustrator so my friend Doug put these back together for me :o)
And now you get to see the illustration the way it was meant to be seen.

Lady Good Nectar has the Bear Family over for Costume Tea Party

Oh Dear, I invited the bears over for Tea this afternoon.
When I opened the cottage door the poor dears ran away!
I thought I'd told them that it was a costume Tea and that
I would be dressed as a Mime. Mrs. Bear let me have it for
scaring poor baby bear to death. He doesn't take kindly to
clowns and Mine, but he sure ate his weight in tea and crumpets.
He he he!

Sir Dante's Surprise

What a fright I just had! I was just waking up from an afternoon nap - thought I'd run out for a sip of water. Of course, I've never had any visitors, so I didn't bother to pull my trousers on...I was just going to be a minute. Well, I stepped out onto my branch, and heard a giggle behind me. Mercy! Imagine my scare when I saw three bears sitting in my side yard enjoying a picnic lunch! I sprang out of there in such a hurry - I really didn't know if I was on the menu! And of course then I had to hide in the forest canopy until the coast was clear...out in broad daylight, and in my BIRTHDAY suit! This is so embarassing! I should have come here first to read the news about a new family of bears in the woods. Now I'm afraid I'll be too embarassed to meet them again!
