Here they are! Our Wisepersons with their menagerie. Yes, the postponed House Blessings finally took place a week last Sunday. Don't you think that the glittery pine cone Christmas tree adds that final creative touch?
Though if we're talking creativity, I did get a teensy bit carried away. Of course the travelling magi were far too polite to mention it. And the generous whaft of incense certainly made the house smell much much nicer than it usually does. Makes a change from Parfum de Dog Pee...
It must have had an effect, as in a burst of yet more creativity I was inspired to take the scissors to my old school scarf to make this natty little jumper for GP dog II. Just what's needed to take the chill off these frosty mornings we've been having. Talk about creative upcycling. And there's still enough material left for a couple more outfits. I don't agree with dressing dogs up like little toys, but like to think that our old Headmistress would have given me top marks for inventiveness.
I guess that GP dog is relieved that I didn't save the co-ordinating scratchy, itchy powder-blue wool twinset and horrible corduroy beret. One can carry creativity too far.
