furbabies and postcards

First, the newest postcards received. This one is from Vicki...her birthday is September..a sapphire birthstone. This is bobbin drawing on beautiful blue silk. Very elegant. Thanks Vicki.
And this is from Lily. Her birthday is in April...birthstone diamond. This has the sparkle and the shape! Thanks Lily, it's beautiful.
And on a sad note. This week has not been a good one for some fur babies. My friend Suzanne lost her puppy Maggie last night, and my SIL is losing her cat Jingle bell to cancer. My heart goes out to both of you. It has not been that long since I walked in your shoes with my beloved Sidney and Ira. There will never be a day I don't miss them.
And that makes today's antics of Chloe and Harry all the more special to me. These two little people lightened my grief and despair, and they enrich my life each and every day. What's not to love here!

My thoughts and prayers are with you both Ann and Suzanne.


  1. Oh the postcards are fantastic..I want to learn how to make one! Help please!!!

    I am so sorry for the loss of the pets, I was in that same position last year, lost two of my best pets so I still mourn and know how it feels..hugs go out to the families! I too have a ragdoll cat now and each day with his antics is so precious!!!

  2. Is your cat asleep on his back? How funny! When mine flops down like that it's the "Don't you want to pet my belly?" pose, which, depending on her mood can be a good or a dangerous thing (an actual request for affection, or maybe it's just a tease and an excuse for some hand wrestling).

  3. I can't believe how those cats just flop down. Chesty's having a tough time, he realizes that somethings up but he doesn't know what to make of it. We took him to the townhouse on the weekend but he wasn't too impressed and wanted to come home.


Thanks for visiting! I always enjoy your comments.
