Went to Erddig near Wrexham today. The North Wales Owl Sanctuary were there, we have seen them several times with their beautiful owls. Anna (in the grey and pink hoody with the Barn owl) and her two best friends Teghan and Sorcha got to hold an owl(so did I.. wooo hoooo...a lovely Barn owl...Iwanted to take him home!!!!). They are gorgeous owls, so friendly, the little kids got to hold a tiny owl. If you want to know more about the Sanctuary this is their website that has all the details:-www.owlrescue.co.uk. I am going to post some more photos tomorrow these include close up shots and some of the tiny owl that Anna took:)

These are our two little kitties, they are brothers and love each other very much, even if they like play fighting!!!This is my little lad. His name is Coci , he appears to be black but in the sun light he is dark chocolate brown...like coco powder. He loves playing chase with his brother(Izzie), cat biscuits,his toy rat,watching squirrels through the window and talking kittie to his mommy( we kind of understand each other).He gives lots of kittie kisses ,well tiny head butts really. My Nana was a crazy cat lady too.
This is Izzie, his interests are food, looking out of windows,sweet corn.!sitting in shopping bags,lying in the sun,sleep,playing with his weasel toy and hiding in wardrobes! He is Annas baby:) and he gets very purry. He has a smirky smile.They are three and a half years old,but are still babies really!!!!

We've been to Liberty Bell in Chester:)It was full of gorgeous prim style American goodies. I got a few little Halloweeny bits to go in my collection . We will be back in December to see what little snowmen they have(I collect them as well, well they are tiny and theres still room in my miniatures cabinet!!!! Anna took the shop window photo on her phone, you can see the'Rows' at Chester. These are the second storey shops and walk ways,some dating back to the Tudor period,though some are Victorian restored versions.

Over the last few weeks I have had several enquiries about commissions and if I take them. I have always accepted commissions and still do. So if you would like me to make a certain item you have in mind or you have missed out on my Etsy or Ebay listing and would really like a similar item made especially for you, or even a gift for someone, please do not hesitate to email me :-email@example.com. No commission is too small. I usually make and post orders within 10 days. Thank you for your interest :)

A little look at at my other creations......little mice!!!! These are my Georgian mice, complete with white wigs. My favourite period in history is the Tudor period, in second place is the Georgian period. I love those powdered wigs (I know in real life they were full of creepy crawlies!!!) and gorgeous dresses ,the Costume Museum in Bath has some fabulous examples.I loved the costumes in the film the Duchess and Marie Antionette.... I just thought you would like to see them:) I also have a passion for the Jane Austin period but thats another story.........
These are my latest owly creations,brooms,staffs,books,signs,wands and displays. The little display boards come with a free standing larger owls and a little owl ink well. They can be displayed seperately. I loved making these owls. Anna has always loved holding owls and when we go to the local National Trust properties ( Speke Hall, Chirk Castle,Errigg and others)there are often owl trusts and have owls on display. She still loves having a liitle hold:) even though shes older now. A selection of these feathered friends are already on there way to Debbie:)
