Hello! it's been a while :O)

ART DOLL

My latest Art Doll ~ Fern and her frog Fred, who refuses to turn into a Prince :O(

ART AUCTION
WHAT CAN YA DO?
When the time comes....bid on the amazing Cigar Box Shrines already in the auction..... the auction officially commences on 17th through to 24th April. With a preview on the 16th April. I will post details of the auction website nearer the time.
One hundred percent of the funds generated in the upcoming auction will go directly to the project.

FAMILY
Having just returned from England, I still feel a little homesick :O(  My Grandma's funeral service was lovely, and I have lots of treasures to remind me of her life :O)
Spending time with my Mum & Dad was great, as was time with my sister (on the left), and my rapidly growing gorgeous neices (oh, and my brother-in-law of course! well, he isn't rapidly growing except for the grey hairs tee hee)

PETS
My beloved black cat died the day I returned form England, eek, I so miss him.

Onray returned from the vets yesterday.... he got bitten by a Rattlesnake AGAIN!

Bobby vanished for three days, has returned thank god, but she's never gone wandering, so I was freaked out for a while...

Well folks, I think that's about it for one day :O)

  3. Sorry about your little woolly friend, I think our big fluff ball "Dave" is on his last legs right now :o(

    The doll is fantastic and the little frog is so cute... is she modelled after me by any chance? I'm forever kissing frogs and not a Prince among them!

  6. I am sorry for your loss. I am glad you were able to go back to England to visit family. I know how hard it is to be so far away. Alaska seems like such a distance when you are clear in the middle pretty much of the US. It is sure a trek from KY.

    Sorry about your cat. :( I hope the other one feels better soon.

    I love your doll as I do your others. But this will have to be my favorite considering one of my favorite colors is green and I love frogs. :)

    I hope you have a great day!

  18. I love Fern and Fred...those beautiful greens, just gorgeous!
    Very sad to hear about your black kitty...mine too passed away a month ago. Still have the one cat and Big Bunny and they are doing well.
    Blimey rattle snakes, I thought mice are a worry, that's pretty scary...poor Onray...you would think the once was warning enough!
    Your cats must have missed you so much!
    I'm looking forward to catching up with family real soon. My nephew is getting married...yikes is he that old already!

    take care
    Grace
