I received some really lovely cards for my birthday before Xmas, but this one stands out for me.
I have deliberately blurred the photo - if you believe that you will believe anything, LOL. Anyway, it's obviously a pusscat eyeing up a rather tasty goldfish.
So who would send me such a card?

Only #Huxleybobs, the Tibetan Terrier office manager from Quentin James Designs.
And he wondered why he got a string of sausages lead for Xmas.............
Right then, what have you got to show us this week? Post on your blog and leave a comment with a link to your post, or just email me and I will link for you. x

No reason in particular to think about Toby today, but then I don't ever nead a reason. He was a constant companion so I think about him all the time.
I wonder whether you want this opportunity to remember your special buddy. If so, let us know and either blog about them or send me their picture and I will upload it here for you.
Here is a photo of my super hero.

I have used the firm Bunches over the years to send special wishes to people who matter to me. They mail bouquets, chocolates, balloons etc, generally on a day specified by you.
I found this photo on Facebook yesterday, of a pusscat who has taken a shine to the box that some flowers were delivered in. It seems that since they arrived, the cat has slept in the box!!!
So cute.
What has taken your eye this week. Are your little buddies helping you to craft or just re-cycling like this kitty?? Post your photos on your blog and leave a comment with a link to your post. If you don't have a blog, then email me your photo and I will upload it for you.

Happy New Year once again to all the little buddies who live with crafters. As you know, I now only have fish and they don't play very much!! so I feed the wild birds and get great pleasure from doing so. As I type, there are bluetits, long-tailed tits and Mrs Blackie feeding in one of my big trees. Wonderful.
However, they are too quick for me to get a photo of them so I have this little gem for you. A whole wall of buddies in my local craft shop.
I know which ones I would choose.
Who are you keeping company with this week? Upload your photos on your blog and leave a comment together with the link, so we can all come and share the fun.

HAPPY NEW YEAR - a bit late I know

Having been away for 2 weeks, this is the first chance I have had to tell you about the amazing buddies I have seen. To begin with, we decided (that's DH and I) to buy seed and fat balls etc for the birds that would visit our pitch. Believe me, we spent a fortune and it was worth every penny. We had
a robin
at least 14 long tailed tits
umpteen great tits
several blue tits
a magpie
coal tits galore
a green finch
at least 3 bullfinches
either Mrs robin or sparrows (but not tree sparrows) and
a blackbird
I tried and tried to take photos but it was so difficult through the motorhome window. However, here is one I did manage:
I think that's a bluetit enjoying the last of the Bill Oddie fat tower.
Along the Tees were plenty of cormorants and the odd duck or two around the barrage, but when we went to Newcastle, there was also a sea lion or seal, not sure because as soon as I managed to get my phone ready to take a photo, he/she had disappeared under the Tyne bridge!!
I thoroughly enjoyed getting so close to the gorgeous little birds, but who have you been crafting with lately. Leave a comment with a link back to your blog so we can have a peep.
