Angel's Creampuff Princess,,,,,

Here she is. Her name is Cream Puff, And she has lived up to that name every minute of her 16 years. If fact, she will be 17, in March of 2011, & still let's me know that she is the #1 cat of five, special & sassy in every way! She is a Blue Cream Point, Registered Himalayan, and white as the pure driven snow flakes falling, and just as pretty! Here eye color has always been this beautiful Caribbean blue with a big fluffy plumb of a tail & the trademark white spot on her mustache. And I taught her to wink at me when she greets me in the morning. And the "cat Greeting" is something you just cannot ignore.....they all so take it soooo serious!!!!!!! All I had to do was get her attention & repeatedly wink & finally she did it back!!! So do the other Himmies!!!! Try it! And, even that head-strong, fat-little, red and white Tabby, Rusty, that was rescued from the front porch, is winking back (sometimes; when he feels like it)!
Now, there is something more special & quite inspiring about this little peanut, Creamer of mine......she went totally blind 3 years ago & I thought she was dying. What a scare. But she pulled thru with flying colors, with hand feeding, & help from a Vet, and is still brightening my day, as usual. Cats are pretty darn smart. She remembered where the food was, and all I had to do was show her where I placed the litter box & there she was using it like a pro in all her glory! Her little Kitty Cube is right next to my bed and, she still goes to the register to warm up this winter & knew where it was located. And travels everyday to her water and dish, way down the hall, which all I have to do is tap her dish so she can hear just where it is.
What a blessing when she comes to my chair to be brushed. You have taught me many lessons Cream, and how courageous & smart you are! Love you special-Creamy-Puff!
Oh, & did I mention, that she still winks at me, when I call her name.........

2010 Akron Children's Hospital Annual Tree Festival

Sharing a picture of this year's, Country Heart's donation to Akron, Ohio's, Children's Hospital Tree Festival!

I usually do this every year, since my son was hospitalized as a toddler, on Christmas was devastating to have a baby that was so sick with croup ~ and in the hospital on this night of nights. He was so brave and treated with so much good care...I have always showed them my full appreciation for this service ---with a donation.

My theme for this year was "The Star of Bethlehem Wreath" with three sparkling golden Stars in honor of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. In the past I've been surprised & awarded a Ribbon for one of the 'Best of Shows'....which was also an honor and a treasured memory.

Favorite Old Quilt Santa

Here he only hand created Santa for this year of 2010! He is made from almost one whole, old battered, red & white quilt. My own pattern, and lots of sewn on wool with a hand sculptured face. He is big and ready to be shipped for adoption. May only be making a few more from his pattern. His leather belt was a great find, fits his plump waist to a "T". Comes with brass bells and his own pair of little red mittens, also antiqued several times. Little sheep on wheels and bag of greens is an extra perk, handmade candy canes are sprinkled with diamond dust. Sports an antiqued tag that reads 1861-1865, and a signed and dated sewed on tag. Country Heart's signature heart on his hand ~ says he was made with love, especially for you..... thank you for checking Santa, out, email me if you are interested,

This Santa has been me if you would like to place an order....Price: $148.00 + postage.
