While the rest of the girls were getting all dolled up in Christmasy dresses, Fig and Chantal slipped out with me to do a shift at our Arts Gallery.
In the satin bag they went and didn't pop their heads out until we were in the festive gallery...
Here's an artsy photo of the girls with our new "portrait" setting on our phone camera.
And you can see why the girls are clamoring to see the Gallery...this year the colors of our special winter show are pink, white and gold!
The girls found bead jewelry, pink trees, quilted winter bags, and paintings of bears.
They found their favorite colors in watercolor paintings and felted scarves!
Look! Birds in tree quilts, and creature angel tree toppers! Fig and Chantal couldn't wait to get back and share what they saw at the gallery!
The girls found the bird basket that Birdy told them about! But instead of little white birds there were red birds, and red and black, and brown! And they were all very noisy!
And look who they found in the felted wool!
Gossamer, standing as still as a doll can!
Where did she come from, and how long has she been here? It's a mystery...
And what a pretty dress she got to wear!
The three little girls shared all their stories about their gallery adventures with Violet when they returned home. But Gossamer wouldn't tell her secret, how she got to the gallery all by herself...
