I'd like to introduce you to the two most recent plush additions to my buttercupbloom etsy boutique:
Edwin the Excellent Owl - who hails from a Ponderosa Pine in Oregon
And, his sister, Ms. Hester Gillespie, the Amazing Hoot Owl...a Southern gal
Its been a little difficult to smile around here as our family has been dealt yet another blow. Our elder cat, Willie, was diagnosed this week with an incurable type of heart failure. Sudden, yes. Too close to losing, Cleo, yes. Cherishing this last weekend together, yes. Lots of cans of tuna being opened...and juice being squeezed for our boy. He's as happy and comfortable as we can enable him to be. So hard.
So, plush owls make us smile...as do brand new baby nephews with names that start with the letter "O". I'm off to visit baby "O" tomorrow as long as ol' Willie remains stable.
Yin and Yang.
