Each Shining Light :: Three Hundred Thirty Nine

Oh Christmas Tree! I hear Nat King Cole, it smells bright, crisp, and beneath the tree is the new gathering spot for tea, homework, daydreaming. Cairo the Boo Kitty adores his tree. I hate to think what he'll do when the holidays are over and the goats get his tree. Where will he nap? Where will he find another tree skirt to slide around? Our kitty is tickled with Christmas, from his nose to the end of his fluffy tail. This week there are only lights, which is lovely enough, and when Max is finished with finals, and home, again, we will add ornaments. I wonder how calmly enamored Cairo can remain when the tree is covered in bright shiny temptations?

With Infinity More Monkeys, a picture a day.

Hi, I came to you via soule mama, and had to show my daughters your mantle – the real deal. :)

Hello! Thank you for stopping by, and for commenting! Our mantle... are you commenting on the prints? They're by Ryan Berkley. Or maybe you already know that. His art is fabulous whimsy. I first saw them in Portland, Oregon. Then, visiting my friend Jennifer (Infinity More Monkeys), I saw they had four prints framed and hanging and I was utterly besotted when Jennifer said, "They're the ancestors." It's just so funny and dear. Since imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, we ordered our own ancestors from Ryan Berkley's Etsy shop. The raccoon is our 'common ancestor!' Of course, if you were thinking of something else... well, then I've prattled on about the wrong thing! So, I'll be hoping you come back and we can talk about the actual real deal!
