The King of My Castle


Jack is definetly the king of our castle.  Well at least he thinks so........ 


This is what I bought for our babies to play on - A massive scratching house which they practice gymnastics on as well as Trapeze, Wrestling, Tightrop Walking and of course Pouncing from great heights.  Who needs a television when you have 2 larrikins living in your home to enteratin you.


The last 8 - 10 weeks have been difficult ones in our household and one day I will tell you all about it but needless to say it has all been very time consuming (Thats why I am hardly ever here.....) and very stressful.  The kindness of bloggers is so overwhelming at times and to receive a "Just Because" gift in the mail from the lovely Pat was just what I needed - It arrived on a particularly "bad" day and soon put a smile back on my face.  I have been lucky enough to meet Pat at our Bloggers meet up in QLD earlier this year (She was there on holiday) and she is a gorgeous gal.


Look at what she blessed me with - The colours are so "me" and it has been beautifully made - The stitchery in the bottom is gorgeous.


And these beauties were inside.  I love "bling" and these are also very "me".  Thanks so much Pat XXXXX


Now that I have my son living back home it is a great excuse to make sweet things - He is as much of a sweet tooth as his mum so I whipped up a batch of Rocky Road over the weekend.


And just to prove that I have been trying to cross some things off my "July" White Rabbits List here is a little sneak peek of the Christmas Doll I have been commissioned to do.  Almost Finished !!

Hugs - Fee XX

I have always wanted a setup like that for our cats, though atm I think the ones we have a a little old for one now (We've had at least a dozen cats over the years, now having three between 5 and 12 years old).
The fabrics on your doll look beautiful!!
Hoping much love and happiness fills your heart this week! Hugs.

Lucky kitties to have such a fun playground! Your gift is beautiful and such a wonderful friend to send it to you. Hope you will soon have brighter, happier days ahead and your son thrives with Mom's TLC. That rocky road looks delish! The sneak peek of the doll looks beautiful, can't wait to see more.

My Amber is green with envy. She would love that playground. At two years old she is still very much a kitten and loves to play. Hope your family life will be easier as your son receives your love and care. God Bless.
