Happy New Year – 2020

Happy New Year! Can you believe it is 2020? As a kid that was science fiction era, (if you discount Back the future set in 2019, lol). There are no flying cars, well not in mass production. I still have to eat food prepared mostly by humans and there is no world peace. So many…

In the studio with Chloe and Dexter

I have not done Christmas portraits (or pawtraits) with the animals for a few years, but with young Dexter on the scene, I really wanted to. Poor Chloe was not feeling the Christmas spirit and I left the cats out this year. However, Dexter was in his element. Don’t get me wrong it was not…

Share your world – 17th December 2019

Christmas is barely a week away and another year draws to a close. I am still attempting to get into the holiday spirit, but it still alludes me. I did get my nails painted sparkly Christmas red, that’s as far as I really have got. I did two Christmas portraits, one for the dogs and…

Sadly severe hot and windy weather the other week had taken its toll,…

Share your world – 3rd December 2019

I know it’s December and I have already had two Christmas luncheon/celebrations, but I still am just not feeling it. Does anyone else find that?

Another week and another set of questions from Melanie (who I hope is feeling better from having the Flu), this week VERY Christmassy SYW What traditional Christmas decoration is actually a parasitic plant? Without resorting to Mr Google, I have no idea, is it Holly? I am not really sure, here in Australia we have a…
