  2. Hello Janet, I love your cute Puffin's colouring in the first painting, and the details in the second. Aw, the baby Puffin of 2015 is so gorgeous too. What fascinating creatures! I love the beak.
    Your doll is wonderful - right down to her stockings! She's a fine lady indeed.
    I love how furry the squirrel's tail is.
    Cheers and Happy PPF 🌻
