  14. Thank you so much for visiting my blog and leave a sweet comment :)

  15. when I was in Primary school, our first tree was fake and the base was a pot. Dad wasn't well off, so we slowly accumulated the decorations, one year, the tree toppled and broke all the baubles. Dad didn't buy breakables again.

    We were the first few houses in Borneo with a tree. Dad went to England and started this tree when he came back.

  16. Hi Anni and what a beauty Tahoe is...and she has good taste. I'd nap on that afgahn too.

    It has been snowing here today totally a surprise...they said we might have a flake or two after dark. It started at 2 and was still snowing at 5.....LOL So much for weather forecasting.
    Hugs M&M

  17. the afghan is lovely, I can see why Tahoe has claimed it :)

  18. Such Christmas spirit in your household, Anni, even down to your kitty. I love that Santa that your cat has claimed. Beautiful work...no wonder you don't want to let out the secret. Leave it in your will!

  19. 'Goes straight for the nuts' bwahaahaha!
    I love the permission text of this cartoon.

  20. Tahoe has wonderful taste! She knows something beautiful when she sees it.

  21. What artistic work and creature comforts! Tahoe seems purr-fectly content. Your other content on your post seems a perfect match for the holiday season.

    Many happy ones!

  22. Great shots. Kitty has a found a nice place for it.
