News from the Tower


First the bad news, my poor Bubu is in the wars again. He has something going on in the eye he nearly lost. They are thinking it may be a tumour, so any positive thoughts please send our way.


Top secret wedding dress expedition, with added bonus of Elvis…


Trying out a new style !!


Wedding venue booked, celebrating with the biggest meringue in the world

Oh Dyan, I know how you're feeling about poor Bubu!! I have a 14 1/2 year old kitty that has given me several bad scares in the last several months. Saying a prayer for Bubu...and you!!

Hope to see you in TX!! Fingers crossed that the classes aren't full!!!

Aw I hope Bubu is OK. I love the pages you have been working on. Just taught a Teacher, who runs a class for Special Needs Children, how to get started on the Gelli plate and she has set it up as a lesson plan this coming term, she said she wants to teach them confidence in writing too so I told her about some of your methods to turn words into Art, I hope that's OK, I will let you know how they get on. Ha funny I was also talking to an Art Teacher at the Pencil Museun in Keswick about you, she was teaching kids how to draw what they feel instead of what they see, and she has written books on it! AND YET she had never heard of Mixed Media or Art Journals either so I told her to look up AFTH and you Anyway don't let me disturb your flight?? Xx have a good trip. X Sam

I am saying a little prayer for Bubu. Praying some eye drop meds from the vet will do the trick. :-)

Poor kitty. My one eyed dog wishes him well. Tumor too but been fine two years now. Wedding fun for both of us. My daughter's big day is August 8!.. May your long travels be productive and safe.

Mandy Mcgregor said...

Buba is loved- thats all cats want and the occasional feed. Whatever he has wrong you wont let him suffer. My mums black cat lost her eye in a bad RTA and she copes really well without it years later. I hope you have a good vet for they are angels in disguise round here ( Leigh)
btw- do they sell VIMTO in America ???
Lovin the pink , purple and blue together WOW nice flight :-)

My heart goes out to you, poor Bubu. I have a black and white cat as well, and, being an animal lover and having had cats most of my life, I really empathize. Your photos and art are beautiful.
