Just when I think I've seen the end-all-be-all of Christmas stockings, a package arrives in the mail from my friend, Joan:

...who apparently knows me like the back of her hand.

Do you hear angels singing? Because, I do.

Little googly eyed kitty cat angels. With bows on their tails. Draped in garland.

These are the kinds of things that I like to remember when I lose faith in the world.

Until next time (remember...every time a bell rings, a tabby gets it's wings!)
x's and o's,

OMG - hide that stocking. Otherwise "Santa Helen" will be shimmying down the chimney to steal it! I can totally see how that restoreth your faith.

Hee! Come on down! The fire is fake!

I know, right? Somewhere...sometimes...someone made this. Not us. But someone like us. They existed. On this planet. Amen.

Well, hell, if I knew it just needed googly eyes to win your heart, I'd have sent the cardboard box with them glued on.

That is one stellar stocking! Great job!!

PS: LOVED your card! Wherever did you find it?

I love this stocking! The eyes on the cat really make it "pop'!

Oh wow, I heart it! Kitty looks about how I feel right now. I'm still madly crocheting gifts for people and I imagine my face probably looks like that. AHHHH!

Eartha Kitsch said...

Barbara: Ooh! Ahh! And thanks! We made those cards. Fresh off of the printing press from our house to yours! :)

Amber: Thanks! I'll say! :)

Sarajean: Oh gosh, nothing like burning the midnight oil..

Kitty appears to have died from asphyxiation - hence the noose, halo and bulging eyes. She just needs her harp!

The google eyes! The angel's disguise! The bow! A SUPERIOR xmas stocking if ever I saw one.
