Beside the Seaside

Oh wouldn’t it be nice to be beside the Seaside beside the sea! I won’t be seeing the sea this year, so I have consoled myself with making a Seaside scene. The little lady is certainly enjoying her ice cream! More details about how she came to life are over on the Calico Craft Parts Blog , I hope you can pay her a visit.I found the most brilliant thing to make really realistic looking ice cream! 

Take care, and please stay safe, thank you for visiting me today xx.

Rainbow Bridge

Hello, I hope you are staying safe and well. Today I wanted to share The Rainbow Bridge poem with you. It is 20 years since my Golden Tammy passed away, but I still miss her every day. I know many others are in the same boat too. I have made these Rainbow Bridge hearts as a memorial  to our beloved pets. If you would like to make one there are more details about the easy steps on theCalico Craft Blog

Rainbow Bridge

There is a bridge connecting heaven and earth
It is called Rainbow Bridge because of its many colours
Just this side of the Rainbow Bridge there is a land of meadows,
hills, valleys with lush green grass
When a beloved pet dies, the pet goes to this special place
There is always food and water and warm spring weather
The old and frail are young again
Those who are maimed are made whole again
They play all day with each other
There is only one thing missing
They are not with their special person who loved them on Earth
So each day they run and play until the day comes
when one suddenly stops playing and looks up !
The nose twitches ! The ears are up !
The eyes are staring ! And this one suddenly runs from the group !
You have been seen, and when you and your special friend meet,
you take him or her into your arms and embrace
your face is kissed again and again,
and you look once more into the eyes of your trusting pet
Then you cross the Rainbow Bridge together, never again to be separated
