The fox and the hare make a return

Are you the one for me? (2007)
Could be...
A wisdom of owls.

It’s okay; your secret is safe with me. (2009)
Could be...
A diligence of messengers.

See more possible collective nouns...
After a pause.

Oh Isabelle!

Found! At last! Isabelle Tibeault is an artist who makes amazing animal masks and this is her blog. Visit and see for yourself.

All images above I've borrowed from her site. I hope she doesn't mind.

(Found via Ulla's own blog.)

Trying to keep my sketch book close at hand

Attempting to draw at least once a day, every day. Here is one of many recent January sketches. This one is of an Indian tin bird on a Hungarian mat.

Adopt me!

Meet Long-eared Eleanor
, a Thelma’s one of a kind felt and fabric stuffie, lovingly handmade especially for hammer & daisy. A rabbit with bags of personality, she would greatly love to find a new cosy den to call her very own.

A colourful felt and fabric stuffie that has been lovingly stitched by hand, with eyes fashioned from two Portuguese buttons reminiscent of strawberry jam tarts. Long-eared Eleanor is part felt, part fabric, and comes decked out with a beaded tummy and decorative stitching.

A small Thelma’s fabric tag sewn on the reverse side sits below her button tail.

A keen traveller and a wordsmith, grab this little honey and claim her as your very own today.

Available here.

There on page sixty-two of Inside Out magazine sits a Thelma's stuffie of mine looking for a home.
