Home for the Holidays

Happy Sunday, crafty friends! It’s Christmas in July this morning. My siamese cat is snuggled in her favorite chair for her afternoon siesta. She will wake shortly for prowling to ensure no creatures are stirring. Her miniature friend has brought her a small gift but is careful to let her nap. I am sure she will be thrilled when she awakes.

  3. What an adorable scene you created and love the kitten all cozied up, little does she know there is a mouse lurking around, but she must remember it’s Christmas time a time for peace, joy and giving. Thanks for sharing with us at Double Trouble. And WOW, Makira, what a great job on your blog…. love it. And love your kid tab too… great idea.
