The Owl and the Pussy-Cat

I think many of you know this wonderful poem from childhood. But for me this poem became the opening of this year. "The Owl and the Pussycat" is a nonsense poem by Edward Lear, first published in 1871.Lear wrote the poem for a three-year-old girl, Janet Symonds, the daughter of Lear's friend poet John Addington Symonds and his wife Catherine Symonds. 

The Owl and the Pussy-Cat

The Owl and the Pussy-cat went to sea
   In a beautiful pea-green boat,
They took some honey, and plenty of money,
   Wrapped up in a five-pound note.
The Owl looked up to the stars above,
   And sang to a small guitar,
"O lovely Pussy! O Pussy, my love,
    What a beautiful Pussy you are,
         You are,
         You are!
What a beautiful Pussy you are!"

Pussy said to the Owl, "You elegant fowl!
   How charmingly sweet you sing!
O let us be married! too long we have tarried:
   But what shall we do for a ring?"
They sailed away, for a year and a day,
   To the land where the Bong-Tree grows
And there in a wood a Piggy-wig stood
   With a ring at the end of his nose,
             His nose,
             His nose,
   With a ring at the end of his nose.

"Dear Pig, are you willing to sell for one shilling
   Your ring?" Said the Piggy, "I will."
So they took it away, and were married next day
   By the Turkey who lives on the hill.
They dined on mince, and slices of quince,
   Which they ate with a runcible spoon;   
And hand in hand, on the edge of the sand,
   They danced by the light of the moon,
             The moon,
             The moon,
They danced by the light of the moon.

For the last monthes i saw many ''owl and cat '' themed items.

Here is some of the   things  that catch my eye.

1. Owl & Cat Sewing Kit by OwlandCatDesigns on Etsy
2  The Owl and the Pussy Cat Brooch set by Natalie Hough on Etsy
3  The owl and the pussycat by  Joey's Dream Garden on Flickr
4  The Owl and the Pussycat cake by Sweet Tiers on Flickr

After several people asked me if I will do this sweet coupleI decided to create  my own version of the story.  
And started from the little pussycat.  I changed her nose a few times in the process, but now I'm satisfied with her little face. 

Now she need matching owl and a  boat for  two)
Until i made the right matching owl for Kitty, and fabric boat , she posing on camera with Emerald owl and paper boat.

Emerald owl is one of my latest creations. One of my dearest fans said - he looks like he's wearing a little kilt.
 He he ) I like the idea. He must be from Scotland.

My dear hedgehogs

I love animals, all type of animals. Honestly.
Nature is rich in all sorts of beautiful, interesting creatures.
And hedgehog a is  one of the loveliest ones. 
Hedgehogs are usually associated with children' stories, due to their cuteness and interesting behavior .
Many people think that hedgehogs - cute creatures that feed on fruit and apples. But in fact, hedgehogs mostly   eat the eggs and baby birds , frogs  and worms, insects.  Lovely image of a hedgehog in  children's books with an apple on a thorns - a myth. With apples or other things  hedgehogs  clean their spines, and not collected  fruits for the winter.

My hedgehogs spines are made of soft fur and they do not injure anyone.
This  hedgehogs are friendly and nice, they do not eat nobody, they like watermelon, tomatoes and grapes)

Our First Anniversary

Today is not just cold and unfriendly weather day.
Today is  our first anniversary with my husband.
This year has flown by very quickly - swiftly. We had a lot of good and a  bad things. Sometimes it seemed that I'm loosing my mind  and everything doesn't happen to me .
But despite all the misunderstandings, I want to say that I love you and you mean a lot to me, my Dear Dear! 
You brought me back to my  real  creative life, you turned all upside down , and I feel   that everything in life is exactly as it should be. 
Have you ever felt that everything that happens to you at the moment  strange, untimely, unusual and hard to understand, but at the same time, it is correct and should be so?
That is our case)
I'm happy that you're here with me...
