V, Paper Doll Edition

Talk about making my day! Working through my reading list at Bloglovin’, imagine how surprised I was when I hit The Jersey Gem and saw this!ย I told y’all in my last Sunday Coffee that Meg (of ย The Jersey Gem) was talented. Well, if this ain’t quite the rendition, I don’t know what is!

An illustration of yours truly (and in my fave vest! ) by Meg of the Jersey Gem.

And here’s the inspiration, from WVW: Fall Preview:

Woot! Let’s celebrate. Tomorrow is the first day of September, and in my head, that marks the beginning of fall. BOOT TIME!


  1. Hi V.
    That is one well deserved compliment. The drawing is terrific. Will she send you the original?
    Enjoy your “end of summer vacation”. Take the time you need, your friends will be here when you get back. (I mean that, we aren’t going anywhere!)
    Friend from the opposite coast,

  2. If that isn’t a compliment I don’t know what is. Terrific drawing – she certainly is talented, and new to me. Off to check out her blog now!

    P.S. I am with you on the joy September 1st brings – boot weather! Too bad the temps here are in the mid 90s this week. BOO.

  3. Aww you are very welcome!!! I’m so glad you liked it!
    & thanks to everyone who has left such lovely comments!
    I will have to send you a large version of it! ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. MEG!!!! Amazing, darling, seriously. Thank you so very much. As you can see from the comments, we all agree: you are one talented lady!

      Thanks for sending the large version!

      1. I really am flattered and so grateful for everyones comments! And of course like a lot of people have said you have great style so how can it not turn out fabulous eh! haha

    1. It really is such an honor. I agree.

      If we all start thinking collectively about nice 70-degree days and boots, you think we can will it into existence?

  4. WOWEE!! This is seriously the coolest thing ever. Talk about one fine paper doll. She’s hot just like the woman who inspired her! Meg has some serious talent and she totally nailed your Fall uniform. What a treasure! xx

    Thank you my lovelies, for your kind words and support! I am flattered and grateful

  6. That is an amazing drawing! It’s such a compliment.

    And yes, I’ve been counting down the days until fall. I’m a boot gal, and I’ve been wearing them since early August. Haha.

    1. Isn’t it?! I so wish I could get away with boots now. Well, I do have my little sandal boots. May need to break them out!

      Thanks for your comment!

  7. I hope this finds you doing well. I’ve had a rough week. I got laid off from work. Now I’ve got to find a new job. I’m not looking forward to that at all. Wish me luck. Take care of yourself. Hope you enjoy the upcoming weekend.

    1. Keith, so sorry to hear that you were laid off. I wish you much luck in finding a new job…keep the faith and you will prevail. You take care as well. Thinking only good things for you!
