♡ Birds and Stars ♡
A place to nurture my dreams

(Photograph by Sarah Liu.)

"She was a proud, brave little chatelaine, and dispensed generously the one hospitality she could offer—the dreams she dreamed—the visions she saw—the imaginings which were her joy and comfort."
(A Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett)

The Princess Code

Welcome to Birds and Stars! This place will always be changing, for as long as I can work on it. Here you'll find my art as well as collections of comforting and nostalgic things that make me feel happy and at peace. ♥
We are freely hosted on neocities, part of the Mental Heal Circle, and also affiliated with The Princess Chateau.
You may call me Lala, although my real name is Lamees (lam as in lamb, ees as in fleece)! You can read about me here. I'd love it if you'd sign my guestbook when you're done! ♥

... sometimes, there are bunnies hiding here and there, but they're very shy and tend to disappear if you tap them! (They came from Catch a Star!)

"Whatever comes," she said, "cannot alter one thing. If I am a princess in rags and tatters, I can be a princess inside. It would be easy to be a princess if I were dressed in cloth of gold, but it is a great deal more of a triumph to be one all the time when no one knows it." (A Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett)


4, January, 2021 I didn't really say anything when the new year started here, did I? Well, I hope the new year will be a good one for you all. ^^ Best of luck with whatever you set out to do! Each day is a new opportunity, so don't worry about setbacks (they're natural!) or breaking new year resolutions, you can keep trying until you achieve your goals. ♥ Yesterday, I updated the Dollroom with a link in a new section called Odds and Ends (for things that don't fit the already listed categories)... read about how a lady whose parents didn't see the need to educate her further helped establish forensic sciences and how her dioramas with dolls (The Nutshell Studies) play a role in educating police detectives to this day! I also accessed my old photographs and have some dolls in traditional Czech dress to share, so those have been added there too.
26, December, 2021 I have updated the Cheer Up page with a new addition to the Play section (links to some old colouring pages and paper dolls) and I have a late entry for the Diary. Things are improving and I can code more easily now! ^^ I think I'll add a proper navigation to my fansite and soon link it.

I updated my Diary, Best Wishes! page (with more information on Iris' reappearance in Pocket Monsters 2019/Journeys), and the Links page with a new, cute neocities website.
19, October, 2021 to whoever left that comment, I hope you reach out to any means of help at your disposal (speak to a counseller, try the 7 Cups of Tea website, etc.) and talk to someone... it's hard when you've got to act okay for everyone around you. Take care! Since you're Muslim, I also advise reading Quran after prayers or at least twice a day. I find 4-5 pages work well for making me happier or at least, more resilient, softening reality's blows. All the best! اسال الله العظيم، رب العرش العظيم، أن يشفيك
10, October, 2021 About a week ago, I updated my Disry and added a new page of Pretty Panels because the old one was quite long! Today, I'm updating the Toybox and Calm Down pages.
14, September, 2021 Wa 'alaikum asallam! It's still hard to update my website without a computer of my own, but I do have some things collected and uploaded, waiting to be added to pages later...! Thank you for the sweet messages in my guestbook, I'm glad this website can provide some comfort. ^^ I finished reading A Little Princess today! Lovely story... Iris showing up again in the anime is wonderful, I wonder if I should make note of it in my Best Wishes! page, although it's after that series... a note! If you scroll allll the way down, you'll find my e-mail tucked away. ^^
