Not all ghosts are scary...

I'm feeling sentimental this Halloween, and this lovely kitty cat has a lot to do with it.  Halo is a beautiful creation by Maya Schippl.

Halo reminds me not only of cats from my past, but all the precious pets that have come and gone, each special in their own way.  Perhaps this Halloween we will each be granted a visit from our beloved animals who live on in our hearts, and the treats we enjoy will remind us of sweet memories.  :]  Happy Halloween!

Finn

This adorable meow is Finn.  He apparently wandered into the HC and fell asleep when work ceased for the evening.  :D

He is made by JMDS.

I won't wake him right now, but this evening he will have to move so I can continue my work.  zzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Simon

Back in 2012, I mentioned the beautiful work of artisan Natasha Fadeeva.  She makes the most amazing little animals.  I just swoon over her mice!!!  :D  I contacted her about using a vintage mouse photo in the Heritage (more on the hallway vignette here), and she graciously gave me her permission.

I am happy to report I am now the proud owner of one her delightful mice!  Simon came across the miles with a gift and a rose.

I think he might be ready for Gustav's housewarming already (I know, I know - get to work on the Mill already).

Happy Groundhog Day 2018

by brae  

Woodrow is busy looking for signs of spring on this cold Groundhog Day, and I think he's found something!  Fingers crossed for an early Spring!!!  Actually, I'd even settle for a temperature consistently out of the holy-crap-it's-bitter range.  :\

And, my ever-thoughtful boyfriend has made sure I have a touch of spring in the house to enjoy while it's blustery and cold outside.  :D

Paw prints

It's my birthday week.  Well, it has actually been my birthday month filled with outings, lunches and dinners with family and friends.  :D  I'll have mini presents to share soon, but I am busy, busy, busy this week especially.  I've been making a dress from a vintage 1970s pattern as well and will blog about that once it is done.

In the meantime, I have finished up a new pillow style for my etsy shop.  Paw prints!  :D

Back soon!
