Vanessa Valencia, the darling, magical, creator of A Fanciful Twist is having another Mad Tea!


Can miles truly separate you from friends... If you want to be with someone you love, aren't you already there?”~Richard Bach

Hello, I am Vrai, the pixie of truth.  It is a gypsy Mad Tea Party, I invite you to, in the fields of Holland, a land full of magic and mystery, comfort and compassion.  The Ethereal Nether Gypsies are here to remind you that nothing is worth more than a kind heart, a vivid imagination, an open mind, and a love of traveling the Earth.

 

“I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel's sake. The great affair is to move. ~Robert Louis Stevenson
 
 

 

 
What is home?  Do you carry it with you in a place in the heart?  Does its sweet essence waft up to the senses like a favorite tea?
I narrate today’s tea party because it is a gypsy tea, mutable, as me, Vrai.
 
You see the Ethereal Nether Gypsies’ home changes with the scenery.  They like it like that and have their homes in their hearts and give love to all they meet.

So, let us sit beneath the apple trees, with our drawings and tea, and 
and think of them, if you please.
The Ethereal Nether Gypsies invite you to peek into what inspires their paintings of Dutch Blue Love Birds at the circus.  They take this invitation very seriously, for they are a precious and private folk and trust and
adore your true hearts. 
 

 
The Nether realm is a place of caring and compassion, true kindness, and appreciation of the Earth’s gifts.  The gypsies have been blessed to have met many who open their homes to them to enjoy teas and tokens of beauty. There are times they look to the stars in awe and wonder at the simple and astounding kindnesses they have felt on their journeys.
The colors of the foods of the Earth and the flowers given to them by friends and strangers, along the way, inspire the colors of the paintings of their Gypsy Circus with Dutch Blue lovebirds flitting in and out of their lives. 

 

Each painting reflects the colors, joys, and fruits of every traveling day.

 
They paint with their hearts and when they stop for teas in the corners of Holland’s magical lands, lovely places are set.

 
 
 

 
 

Brushes and comfort are given.  Palettes are refreshed.
Inspiration is sweet. 

 
When it is time to pack your bags, again,
 

the peonies will smile on the bushes, as well as, from the table set in the caravan that bumps and winds its way along the enchanted road.
 

 

And The Ethereal Nether Gypsies will send you wishes of light and blessings and thanks on cards of old, so that you will remember them and the stories they told.
