Left Behind :(

Hello Peeps,

The Mother has sailed away on a cruise heading to a few Fijian islands with the Boss and friends. Snowy and I teamed up and tried to hide in her luggage so we could go too, but... the Mother found us. Ooops!

Now Snowy just looks longingly into the distance waiting for the Mother to come home (he has separation anxiety, poor thing).

Don't worry though - he is going to get lots of walks and treats, plus Miss H will let him on the couch for snuggles (shh, don't tell the Boss). Hee...hee...

While the Mother is away Miss H has decided to do some craft that she hasn't done for a while. 

These "L-O-V-E" letters were once very pretty covered in scrap-booking paper but now they have been dreadfully faded after living in Miss H's window sill for a couple of years, so she decided it was time for a change up...

She stripped off the paper and was left with the original make over of the plain brown letters. 

After a little sanding Miss H used modge podge to attach stamps. These are the first two completed letters.

Aren't the stamps beautiful? They are pieces of art in miniature. Miss H used a mixture of very old stamps and newer stamps. 

Tonight Miss H is sitting down with some stitching of London-themed patterns while watching The Sound of Music. Miss H realised that her 6, 5, and 3 year old nieces know more about it than she does (she hasn't seen the movie as far as she can remember) when they wanted to play it with her. They assigned her the role of "governet" before explaining the story to her and she wants to be more knowledgeable next time they play. Hee...hee...hee...

Love From
Baa. xxx


  1. Oh I am sorry you and Snowy were left at home while the mother travels. But you have good company with Miss H. Love the new look of the letters, the postage stamps are lovely.

  2. Oh goodness me Baa ...look at Snowy's face!! I am pleased to hear the Mother has gone away for a holiday but sorry you could not all go with her! I look forward to seeing the completed letters ... they will look amazing. Happy Crafting to Miss H.

  3. Such a shame to be left behind but, you look like you are having some crafty fun too! Christine x

  4. Stamps are often miniature works of art so it's a wonderful thing to re-use them for something. So sorry that Snowy is feeling left out but I'm sure Miss H is looking after both of you (as you are looking after her).

  5. Somehow missed this post! Poor Baa and Snowy! Great makeover on the letters Hannah and I hope the cruise was wonderful! xx
