holiday with cat-angel
So, unfortunately for me, I was ill for most of my holiday, but, I did get a tree, for the first time! After avoiding the crooks on Roncesvalles (whose already inflated prices - $45 for a small tree! increased by 10 dollars between first quotation and our trip to the bank), we bought a nice spruce from a heavily-caffinated, but very friendly hipster-florist. We decorated it with some old, nostalgic ornaments, LEDs, new disco-ball style balls and more handmade, handprinted fabric ornaments than I thought I had made. I realized I lacked a tree toper, so I whipped up this demented Minouette-angel (purple block printed Minouette on striped gold silk, with felt, vintage islet frabric and Japanese washi cardstock). It's quite crazy, but it makes me gleeful.
Minouette approves, and prefers to sit under the tree, like a furry present.
