A month ago, two of my dearest crafty buddies got together and plotted and schemed. I won't name anyone as I don't want to embarrass them but I was so overwhelmed by their kindness. When we lost Vince we were faced with a big vet bill. I had only a few days before placed a large crafty order so I emailed asking if it could be cancelled as the money was needed for the vet. So, that was all sorted out. A week later, I reordered a small part of the original order, with the intention of going back and completing the order a few items at a time.
So you can imagine my surprise (that has to be an understatement) when my smaller order arrived, together with another package from the same company. I thought at first there had been an enormous mistake and that my original order wasn't cancelled after all - and then I found the note. And I cried. A dear and loving friend (who is more special than I could ever say) had gone into cahoots with the store owner, and between them had sent the rest of my order. There were a lot of tears. I am a very emotional little squirrel - but they were happy tears, and shocked tears, and full of love tears.
There are times when friends can take you so totally by surprise that it takes your breath away.
This was made with one of the stamps in my order for one of the two naughty pixies - I am still planning something for the other one.

So, to the two naughty pixies (you know who you are) - I love you!
Hugs, Squirrel xx
I rediscovered some photos of Vince on the external hard drive so thought I would share these two with you. It was a very sunny day and he was lounging about on the carpet in a patch of sunshine from the front window. Toad grabbed his camera and got down there with him. Vince didn't bat an eyelid but happily posed for several shots. I think he knew how handsome he was.
