Up, up and away ... while the sun shines, let's make hay!

Today's cat illustration sees our intrepid black kitty cat boldly going where quite probably at least one cat has gone before.  But this is no fishing basket - you'll find no pilchards nor sardine fragrance infused here: just friends, flowers and well-needed good cheer.  And on that note ...

Happy Feline Friday to you !

Australian Wildlife from Bushfires Need Our Help

10.1.20

I try to keep it a happy place here – a refuge from reality.  And this was going to be a cheery 'Happy New Year' hello!

But what’s happening here in Australia is devastating.

The loss of human life, livestock and homes is tragic. The enormity of loss of our wildlife and their habitat is unfathomable.  We live in a sunburnt, dry and drought-prone country and bushfires are a sad norm here - but the 2019/20 Australian bushfire season has been of a scale and intensity we've not seen before. It's staggering.

If you can donate vital funds to help our native animals recover, please go to WIRES Wildlife Rescue, the organisation in the heart of the hardest hit country at the moment.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart. 

This beautiful organisation has been caring for wildlife for over 30 years. WIRES will ensure that the funds you donate will go where they are needed most to save our injured animals’ lives, to search for all those clinging to life who are still out there, and create ways to sustain the surviving wildlife that's now homeless and without food and water. The season is not yet over - sadly our summer is not even halfway through - let's pray that these bushfire beasts are done with us soon. 

And to our firefighters and every person supporting them in their efforts in every way, you are angels and we thank God for all that you do.  Stay safe. Much love.

Francophile Friday and Festive Fun : Pink Scooter, Louboutins and Festive Fashion

The year's flown by faster than this pink scooter in Paris with its merry cargo, it seems!

Today's illustration is a blast from a Christmas past and shows our stylish lassie zooming by the window of Christian Louboutin in Paris.  Not only has this past year flown, this past decade has flown, too.  I just realised I've not stopped to reflect yet on the significance of a decade ticking over and 2020 just around the corner.  But really, that's probably a good thing.  Too much navel gazing in the rear view mirror can take us away from living in the today. 

That said, I'm incredibly grateful for all the blessings in my life, in the past, in the now and for all those yet to come.  Thank you for your visits here, however frequent or rare.  Wishing you a magnificent Christmas and a contented, peaceful and happy New Year.  And on that note ...

Happy Francophile Friday and Festive Season to you!

PS:  My online store is always open, so pop on over to your heart's content.   No mass-produced items there ... everything you acquire is made to order or one-of-a-kind or made with exceptional care.  Thank you for your support of my artistic endeavours - it means the world to me.
