Special Thanksgiving Giveaway, Snow and Sammy!

A week from today we are already celebrating the 1st Advent and I have just finished sorting the decorations that are to go on my wreath. Finn & Hannah, handcrafted dolls, were dusted off to make their annual appearance on a shelf and I'm almost done with my Christmas gifts - all of them handmade this year!

Meanwhile it is getting c-c-cold with snow predicted on Thursday. Speaking of Thursday, head on over to my Facebook Fan Page. There's a special Thanksgiving Prize to be won! Handmade by me of course! See the widget on the right side of my blog. You can win a cosmetic bag and sleep mask set. All you need to do is become a fan and 'like' my page. One winner will be chosen on Thursday 25th!

In other news I've had a bit of a scare when I couldn't find Sammy anywhere this morning. It all started harmlessly when I let him out on to the terrace as usual. The terrace is enclosed and there is no way Sammy could disappear from there. So after a while I called him back inside and usually he answers back (it sounds like 'kakakak'). It's hilarious! But on this occasion nothing. So I went Sammy. NO Sammy. NO SAMMY.
And then I remembered that we had pushed the outdoor chairs and table all to one side due to the recent storms and something told me he must have climbed up and over onto the other side (the big outdoors)...and wouldn't you know I spotted two shiny green eyes staring out at me from inside this big bush. With a lot of cajoling and promises of yummy treats I finally got him out from there and carried him back to safety! I don't know who was more scared - me or Sammy!
One thing is for sure - I'm going to keep a close eye on him whenever he's out there from now on!

Thanks for stopping by today!


  1. Oh my scary!!! Thank goodness he was scared enough to stay put. Yikes! The cat I had growing up used to try and sneak out the back door sometimes, and sometimes she would succeed, but, once she got out, she realized how scary it was and basically just did a fast lap around the yard before sprinting right back in the door!

    You are on the ball too, with your holiday gifts already made, wow! And snow? Can't believe it...this year is flying by!

  2. Thankfully you found him so soon. After what Duke did I know how scary it is when they disappear.
    I wish I could say that I was finished with my Christmas gifts. I need to get busy.

  3. Oh Sammy! You scared us too! Don't do that again! There no place better over that fence since you have the bestest home ever so you stay where you're supposed to!

    Our mommy already likes you on Facebook so hopes she's entered in your drawing!

  4. If I tried something like that, my human would totally freak out too. But I think it must have been a big adventure for Sammy, and I sorta secretly envy him!

  5. oh my... so glad you brought him back to safety! That is so frightening when our cats get out into the wide and scary world. But he is safe and you are happy - we all are - and feel warned to be extra careful with our feline loves!
    many blessings!
    PS I will head on over to your facebook page. I have an account but don't do too much with it. Haven't quite mastered it yet... :0

  6. I am so glad he is now safe and sound. That is so scary.

  7. Glad you found him! Hey Duni, Sheila and I are ready to have you as blog-guest...could you please send me your email again? Somehow I've lost it!

  8. omg! glad sammy's back and safe! whewwww

  9. Ooh so glad he didn't go far! We have a cat that does the same type of thing whenever possible - tries to make to to the big outdoors, but never goes far from the tree right outside our door :)

    That is so neat that you handmade all your gifts!
