Ode to small creatures

So charmed by our time kitty sitting that we decided to enlarge our little family and get one of our own.  Meet Dash our newest addition! 

If he is not causing the children to burst out in excited giggles and squeals as he leaps and bounds after string or stray flip flops  he can be found curled up purring on my shoulder or lap as I sew or attempt to type.  

I grew up having all sorts of pets; 
dogs, cats, birds, mice, hamsters, rabbits and it has to be said I spent a good deal of my teenage years rescuing and raising baby squirrels, rabbits and birds. 
After  a 17 year gap I once again have a small furry creature at my side... 
I can't tell you how happy it makes me! 

And yes, the market last night went well!! So busy though (with customers and crazy winds blowing things willy nilly) that I neglected to take even a single photo! Sorry. 
It was worth all the effort of this last month (many a sewing session at 4:30 AM). Am feeling so relaxed now...time to clean up the neglected corners of my house and sweep away the sewing trail!
Happy Monday to you all! 


  1. Ah, what a cutie! Congrats to you guys on your new addition. Our girls love playing with the barn kittens. We've got four right now. They were born on Easter and are not so little anymore, but still VERY playful and love the attention. Kittens are definitely a gift from God. Have a great day!

  2. I love the name "Dash"! And yes a cutie...
    Congratulations on another market day! That is wonderful.
    I hope the heat has lessened at least a tad.
    Happy Monday and week to you too!

  3. Well done for your collection Juniper!! It was nice to stroll around the market yesterday :)

  4. Congratulations on Dash! What a perfect cat name. As someone who grew up with loads and loads of animals roaming around the house, I completely get what you mean. We currently have two cats, one who is a joy and the other who is a terror. I can't be without a bundle of fur and love to nap with and talk to and simply be around.

    Have a beautiful week! xoxo Gigi

  5. So cute! I love his patterns. And the name is perfect!

  6. What a cute kitten! I love his colour.

  7. Awwww!! I'm a firm believer that a house isn't a home till it has a wee furry creature in it!! Congratulations on the latest addition to your family :-)

    Oh, remember I told you that my friend had written a novel based in malta...she's going to be doing a book tour there. She is excited and terrified and would love to meet you if you can make it. Her blog Caroline Smailes in search of me has all the details (thought you might be interested)
