Today's Wonder of the World is...Crepes, Crêpes, and Crapes Fit for A Queen!

Who else but a Court Magician could take crepe paper like this
and make a treasure like this?
Or like this...
I know who! It's my lovely friend Nancy at Fete et Fleur!
Visiting her blog is like stepping into a jewelry box filled with the most fanciful treasures! She even makes little doll shoes!
So now the Queen has her shoes of crepe paper. What about her crown?
Let's hop over to Roses Petite Maison, another enchanted place I love to visit, and let sweet Rosemary crown her with glitter and stars and crepe paper medallions!
And don't forget something pretty to carry, with more crepe papery frills!
Now, what about flowers for our queen?
Of course...boughs of Crape Myrtle! Let's cut a few branches to make a blossom bouquet!

Crape myrtles are a true wonder.
Here's a few by a neighbor's driveway.
They come in all different vibrant colors.
There's even a grape myrtle!

The red ones remind me of something...

That's it! It's the burning bush! The bush which burned and burned and never was consumed! The one God used to speak to Moses.

Those crepe myrtles have been burning..um, blossoming since June, and they're still going strong!
And their bark. Now that's a wonder too!

If God is speaking to me through Crape Myrtles, God must be saying, "Enjoy my Wonders! They're for you!"
Either that, or God's saying, "Don't commit Crape Murder! Read Southern Living's article HERE and stop chopping my dear trees to pieces."
Or maybe that's just me talking.
But I've forgotten all about our Queen! She must be famished!
What else should we feed her but crêpes, of course!
Sammy has crêpes at the ready. He's happy to share his recipe here, in case you have a queen or king reclining on your sofa, waiting to be fed.
Here are the commoners, eating the left overs!
Have a Wonder-full Wednesday, y'all!
