The Christmas Book

All I want for Christmas
Is to have What Katie Ate.

A Simple Christmas

Much has happened over the past 6 months which changed aspects of our lives forever. For good of course.
What better way to mark the birth of Christ then, with a sprinkling of fairy lights, a hint of Frankincense and Myrrh and last year's little angels from Vienna.
And a divine-smelling pine called Mr Tuna.

Sweet, Black and Hooded

October beckons, albeit distantly. Poe's mind fills with mischief.
Perhaps this is how we should look when we visit Ogilvy then.

I couldn't have said it better than the person who originally captioned this.

And right back at ya!

The Dymo monster is at it again.
I get no flowers in the morning but a DIY dymo bracelet instead.
Then again I've never been a hearts and chocolates kind of girl.

Our Darling Bear

Rainbow Bridge

There is a bridge connecting heaven and earth
It is called Rainbow Bridge because of its many colours

Just this side of the Rainbow Bridge there is a land of meadows,
hills, valleys with lush green grass

When a beloved pet dies, the pet goes to this special place
There is always food and water and warm spring weather

The old and frail are young again
Those who are maimed are made whole again

They play all day with each other
There is only one thing missing

They are not with their special person who loved them on Earth
So each day they run and play until the day comes
when one suddenly stops playing and looks up !

The nose twitches !
The ears are up !
The eyes are staring !
And this one suddenly runs from the group !

You have been seen, and when you and your special friend meet,
you take him or her into your arms and embrace
your face is kissed again and again,
and you look once more into the eyes of your trusting pet

Then you cross the Rainbow Bridge together, never again to be separated

"The woods are lovely, dark and deep
But I have promises to keep
And miles to go before I sleep
And miles to go before I sleep"

Rib Art

si la lumière est la vie,
qui est le soleil de ton univers?

se la luce è vita,
che è il sole nel tuo universo?

si lux, vita,
qui soli in mundi?

si la luz es la vida,
que es el sol en el universo?

The Girl with the Monochrome Wardrobe

Controversy notwithstanding, I'd say this range was designed for me.
Poe has already put an order in for the distressed mini.
Mr Postman, where are you.....I'm giving you one week, or do you fancy two fingers up your nose???
