All things wonderful........All things nice.......

Lots of lovely things today, all of which just makes me feel warm and fuzzy. Firstly I showed you a picture of my Jasper's door with all his cards on.  Since then the postman has brought more. Each day up to yesterday he popped cards through the letter box. Here are some more to show you. I cant tell you how special it has been that you have sent cards.So very special and so appreciated.
                         Then we received this gorgeous pot full of  Hyacinths from dear friends, they will flower soon and spread pretty cheer which is what our dear friends intended.
                   Another wonderful surprise was a package we received yesterday. Inside was a beautiful little ginger kitty Christmas ornament which  we will treasure and wrap carefully to  bring out every year. Isn't it gorgeous...
                   IN the same package was the most adorable little ornament.. Do you remember me posting this picture.
              Well just look at this darling ornament. We love it and it will remind us so much of our boy..
            We thank dear  friends so much for thinking of us and we love each and every card and treasure that we have  received..

Now for more news.. You will remember that Barrie and I were married in Vegas. Well because we married later in life we knew that we probably wouldn't  get back for the special anniversary's like silver etc so we made a pact that we would go back for our 10 year anniversary. That is on the 10th May and we have booked our trip and will go on the 4th May. What I didn't realise until blog friends told me is that blog paws is on that same week. I am thrilled to think it may be possible to meet several blog friends because that would be the icing on the cake. I don't think I will be able to get to blog paws but hopefully we can arrange to meet up with as many as possible. That thought does make me smile a lot, so fingers crossed.
    So a post full of wonderful things..
              Love and hugs to all.  Carol xx

Oh what a joy to see your Jasper's card and his precious face again looking in the mirror as was the kitty in the ornament.

I wish I could meet you two. I live a long long way from Nevada however, so here I will be happy in the knowledge that YOU are having a fabulous time and meeting some of the bloggers.

Isn't it great to know how much your special kitty touched the lives of so many? I remember being overwhelmed by that when I lost Twix. Those gifts are precious! I do hope you will be able to meet with some friends in Vegas!

Katie and Glogirly said...

What special and beautiful gifts from thoughtful friends. : )

Glogirly is SO excited that she may get to meet you in May!!! What purrfect timing!

PS... it's possible you might be able to come to just part of BlogPaws if you're interested. We can't remember, but we're thinking that in previous years there may have been an option to attend just one day. That being said, there's lots of mingling time in the lobby on all of the days, and there's usually one evening where we're on our own for dinner. : )

Madi and Mom said...

Such a sweet post of special friends and gifts.
Oh for sure the trip to L.V. was meant to be!!! Enjoy and we hear there will be lots of friends there.
Hugs madi and mom

Las Vegas and the Blog Paws at the same time. It was meant to be! It would be such a treat for all of your friends to meet you and Barrie in person!!! So many people love Jasper, you're family!

The trip sounds like a lot of fun. And perfect timing.

My Human thought she was going to do Crispmouse cards...right up till she didn't. Sigh. Honestly, she is soooo lame.

The Las Vegas meet up sounds like fun! Hope it happens for you!

I wish I could have read your blog b/c I miss it so!!!!!!!
Sadly I can not even see what I am writing!!!
I hope we will get enough money to go see a doctor about my eye but I don't think it will help---it didn't help my dad!! He was blind a few years before he died and tried everything, he had money!!

katsrus said...

Beautiful gifts and cards. That will be so fun for you and Barrie. Hope you also get to meet a lot of bloggers.

I never saw the picture of Jasper looking in the mirror. What a great image!

Mama Bear said...

Your comment about your upcoming trip to Vegas made me think about a wonderful "side trip' when I was in Vegas for a conference a couple of years ago. I was lucky enough to be able to meet Trish of Katnip Lounge and have the opportunity to cuddle with a few of her 13 cats. Such a pleasure to meet a fellow cat lover in person and have a great conversation.
