A Wonderful Prize

Today in the mail I received a wonderful prize.  Diane from Always Crave Cute sent me this lovely book by Clare Turlay Newberry.   Diane's blog is always the best.   She is one of my treasured blogging buddies.    If you have never been to visit her please do.  You will have a wonderful time seeing all the cute treasures she shares.  She has a lovely Etsy shop with great vintage items that are sure to bring a smile.

The story of Smudge captured my heart.  Any of you who visit regularly know I love kitties.

One of the beautiful drawings in the book was of Smudge's father Buster.    

His colors are so vibrant.  

Here is Smudge's Mom Muff.  

This book will be placed on the shelf with all my other treasured ones.   Hope you enjoyed seeing my prize.   Have a blessed day.    Thank you Diane for bringing me such joy!

  5. Oh I do so love treasures such as these! Love the name "Smudge" for a kitty too. Another blogger (I've lost her site) once sent me the book Blue Willow, a childhood favorite. I was over the moon! Imagine my surprise to discover amongst my packed away books that I'd already bought a copy for myself a long time before! Who knew?
