What I've brought from the book store

Bag full of treasures. I'm so afraid that due to crisis some great magazines may be terminated! Hope we don't stop buying them and all of them survive.

Some cute bunnies

 Lop bunny

A couple of weeks ago we spotted a pair of fat cute bunnies on our backyard. Our first impression was that was some kind of garden sculpture. But no - they were real bunnies. I decided to take them inside and send my daughter to ask neighbors, maybe someone cried already missing them. Bunnies were quite friendly, the smaller one - I guessed it was a girl - came to me to make introduction. The boy ran a little around then also was caught and brought inside.

Lop bunny and guinea pig

Our guinea pig Cyrano was very agitated - he squeaked, he stood high in his pen and I took him out to make acquaintance with the bunnies.

Meanwhile our daughter found the owners. They asked her when she had found them - which day - they didn't even know that their bunnies had escaped!

One last glance - they are so, so, so cute! Yellow, big and round - like from kids book.

Bunnies go home

And off they go!

Next time they are in our backyard I'll keep them!!

Flower Faires

Flower fairies dolls
I decided to change my buddy icon on flickr and tried different photos of my works. It's not easy to cut a picture 48x48 px and make it look good. Now I have an icon from this picture. I love making tiny flower fairies from the silk flowers! You see they are really small - they are sitting on some kind of a computer manual and have a pack of compacts behind them.

New member

Our daughter was devastated by her pig's death. So we decided to go to the pet store and have a look. Just have a look.
And we returned with a new family member. He is quite an opposite of Afanasy - smooth, silky, quick and adventurous. When I saw his prominent curved nose in the profile I immediately said - Cyrano! And at hearing this everybody decided suddenly that we should take him.
For all of us it was a certainly comforting not to see the pig's den empty.

Our piggy

I haven't been writing here for a while. Our guinea pig Afanasy has passed away. Those who don't have pets can't understand how much grief brings the death of such a small creature. He didn't make it just a little to be 7 years old. It's a lot for a guinea pig! He traveled with us from country to country, sometimes by a separate plane, lived with us in the hotels, apartments, houses, always cheerful, always purring...
