This week I received a box from my lovely friend Shelly Hawley-Yan in Canada. shelly is an avid animal lover and does lot of rescue work ( last post mentioned she is rehabilitating a goldfinch :-) ) , all kinds of animals, and , of course cats/lkitten/dogs. I often do wish I were her neighbour, would be hanging out there all day helping out.
Back to the box. It contained so much I could not, at first, take it all in !! This morning was the first time I had to photograph everything . A BIG lot of pics to follow !!!
First I wanrt to show you this wonderful drawing ( pen and watercolors) she made of Floris, my little brave kitty who died 1 1/2 years ago.
It is fantastic ,each time I look at it I see him back, looking this charasteristic way.
she included a miniversion...
And lots of other things like :
very small kitty portraits
a kitty doll !!!
A kitty charm and some kitty buttons :-)
and even a porcelain kitty
very small kitty vases ( porcelain)
Since we are both petit pointers ( Shelly designs wonderful things) she understands the need for nice sharp scissors. I love nice sharp scissors! Am always on the lookout for them.
A ( cat decorated ) magneto comes in veryy handy when you loose the small needle and it must be somewhere. sometimes you can actually see it, but can't pick it up. But it can also simply hold needles.
Part of all these lovely gifts were packed in these two (RL) containers:
and it all came with a very sweet message , written on this card :
Can you imagine I am really gobsmacked ?
Thank you so much Shelly !
