We moved to our summerhome on Saturday. At first there were only Ari and me. As we had to cut the grass from our yard before we could take our kitties with us.

here Ari is cutting the grass with our new second hand lawnmower.

Here are the wooden storcks the live on our yard.

There is also a stone cat that watches over us.


He looks very angry.

There is also another cat that says Welcome. It was broken until I fixed it on Sunday.

I also toned it abit as I changed the way this welcome was attached to my wedding present cat.

I also toned ourĀ  windchim that had broken. This isn’t just what I wanted…. next time I will change it a little more.


Yesterday when we came home I found a package inside and that made me so happy. Now I have beads for necklaces and Finmollies for the summer as the store here goes for vacation.

Here’s another photo from them.


I also heard from Wendy that Vanessa has gotten my little angel and that she loved it.

I think I will take some beads to our cottage so that I can make those little angels for others too.

This is my rosary. I got this as a gift from a friend year 1969 in Poland. Since then it has been with me. I found it after many years and felt bad as it had broken badly.

Welho my Cornish Rex princes thought that this is a wonderful toy for her.

I didn’t agree and after ter this I sent Welho away from my computer.

This was what I got done on Friday. It wasn’t as easy as I thought. The only things I could use were the Cross and the rosary charm.

I got this done yesterday and I like how it looks.

I’m going to make me a collage from these as the picture of tzasouna reminds me of Karelia. My Grandmother is from Karelia as is my father, too. That little booklike box was the container of my rosary. That little book is a Swedish New Testament witch was printed in London in the year 1849. Last and not least there is my rosary. These all have dear memoriesof my youth and roots.

So I will make my framed memory collage from them.
