owl eyes (day 12 of the 30 day photo challenge: close-up)


owl pincushion made for me by my aunt mary!

It’s a little owl pincushion! This little guy was a surprise made for me by my Aunt Mary! He’s so perfectly stitched & perfectly adorable. I especially love the scalloped stitches on his wings; can you see them?

It’s a beautiful day today, it was even chilly last night! The morning breezes are starting to almost sound like autumn, and I’m always ready for autumn weather. My favorite.

This photo is part of oh so lovely’s 30 Day Photo Challenge. Today is Day 12: Close-Up.

in memoriam of my cactus: a plush cactus

My beautiful pet cactus, Cactus, is now officially a resident of cactus heaven. It was a good cactus, and I loved it as much as anyone has ever loved a cactus, but the Cleveland sun, especially the amount that comes through my window, was just not enough.

Cactus, in better times

Cactus had been looking a bit peckish for awhile, but I kept hope that it was just having a dormant winter. But on Wednesday, its head popped off. Goodbye, Cactus.

My room and my heart are feeling rather empty, so I was compelled to make a memorial version of my beloved Cactus.

Plush Cactus

Much less alive and much more cuddly, the presence of Plush Cactus is slowly healing the prickly hole in my heart.
