Friends who Care and Gifts to share

So many well wishes, kind and consoling words
have been posted by so many
beautiful blogging friends
on the loss of our darling
last week
that I was totally blown away!

Sincere heartfelt thanks
to all of you most

Also just yesterday arrived this most beautiful surprise
from all the staff at our local Vet Clinic
who have been active in
caring for her
in the

final months.
Included was a most beautiful poem.
Just how special is that
was she
 to be loved so much!

Now life goes on somehow and before our recent episode I had started a
small baby quilt for my girlfriend's daughter who has
recently had a baby boy and who just
loves these

It is coming with Jeff and I when we visit my ailing 91 year old Dad
who lives in Adelaide (interstate) next week.

I had also just finished another little fabric and paper journal like this
which will become available for sale.
Let me know if anyone of you are interested!

And speaking of journals I wanted to share this beautiful little paper and lace
journal which I won in a giveaway from

I think Anna has only very recently started on her journey of making a journal or two.
She does the most beautiful paintings which
you should see on her blog!!!
Beautiful work Anna and thank you so much for this gift I won.
It is just so pretty.

Just one more thing to share:
this vintage Fleur-de-lis
pewter plate

which is very happy to be sharing company
with some other vintage silver and pewter items

and jewellry on top of this
cupboard in my

Thank you all so much for your kind thoughts and comments
during this really difficult time!
Love and hugs to you all,
Suzy xxx

  8. Hi Suzy. I saw the title of your post and send a belated condolence on the loss of your beloved furry family member. It is truly a gesture of love to take care of our pets the best we can.....and then let them go peacefully. I know it will take time (believe me, I know). It looks like you're keeping yourself busy by creating and giving to others. Another loving gesture! Take care.

    A big hug to you.......Angie
