Sunny Sunday

Earlier in the week Äiti picked up a package which had been sent all the way from the USofA, from none other than Mom Trish of the Katnip Lounge. As you can imagine, we were all over the packaging and eager to see the contents. disappointingly, all that was in it for us was some string - no little love lockets from May Ling for Mirsku. But he coped well with the disappointment. No, instead there were two gifts for Äiti. The first was this cloth, entitled 'Aurora Stran'. As Loyal Readers know we sometimes see the northern lights, and the dancing tails of those who are at the Rainbow Bridge. Since Stran left us, we have not seen them, but we know he will be there, tail waving. But this is a permanent reminder for us, and we have put it on the wall at the top of the stairs. And we are very honoured as it was Mom Trish who did this dyeing.
Dad Scott dyed a t-short for Äiti which Seppo is helping to model. Äiti bought t-shirts last year but they are a bit big for her now (she still wears them though as they are comfy and colourful). But this is the perfect fit for her.
We are incredibly grateful for these gifts - and the card that was sent too. Äiti is having a hard time getting used to life after the God Emperor and knowing that she has such amazing pals really helps.

We are both so honored you featured our art today! King P, please tell Äiti she's as tiny as a little wood sprite--all that hard work on the pavement shows.

xx Trish and Scott

Gifts full of love. The hanging brought tears to our mums eyes. She misses Stran. Your mum's heart must hurt a lot.
Scott outdid himself with Aiti's shirt. The colour combos are superb as well as is the way the pattern falls.
Aiti, you look great!
