Sunshine on a Cloudy Day ...

Sometimes when it rains, it pours.

I have a friend who I thought could use a little cheering up.  Just a little something to maybe shine a little light into a dark day ...


Ever since making this pin, I've been wanting to make more. 
Playing around with scraps and ribbon and cotton thread ... pieces evolve ... layers change.

I have it propped up on my new lamp.  Technically, it's an old lamp.  Painted a new fun color.  See my favorite lamp was sent to the great beyond by this little fella:

Erebos*, the handsome boy on the left, had a little ... erm, DERP! moment and took the glass -- the beautiful, orange, smooth, round glass -- lamp with him. 

I heard it happen, but I couldn't look. 
I didn't want to see it.
Seeing it would make it real.

I made Chris do it. 
He had to tell me that my favorite lamp was a goner.


On the plus side, no cats were injured in the breaking of the lamp.
Or in the subsequent moments following the breaking of the lamp.

He's lucky he's cute.

* Marishi is the girl on the right.  Ain't she pretty?
