Fawns and Bluebirds

Here is another of Grammie's cards.  She must have loved it so to keep it in her collection--it is all spotted and stained.  I can see why she liked it so much--those little fawns are so sweet.

When Clytie and I were walking in forests surrounding The Abandoned last time around--Sissy actually saw one of these delicate little creatures.  Today's card is in honor of that magical moment.

This is adorable, and it's so nice that you can attach it to a great time as well.

I like the little card. Glad you had a safe trip this last time. Also glad you and your sister were able to spend some time together before you went on this last trip. I plan on going to my Mother's tomorrow to spend the day. Granddaughter will be going along and also our one daughter that just recently retired. So I'm hoping we have a nice time.

Ah sissie, those little fawns look so much like the one that bounded away from me - I've never seen a deer so tiny ... and quick!

Fawns are so magical looking - tender and fragile.
One of my favourite sets of pictures were those I took one day at a nearby Nature Reserve when I cam across a doe and her fawns. I was able to observe them for over an hour.
Really magical!

YOUR Grammie must have been a true gift from God. Always such sweet and dear cards of hers. So glad you made it back from your trip safely. Hey I have been meaning to tell you that you named your sweet kitty the same as my poodle, Bootz ! that must be a popular name for beloved pets. Hope she is bringing much happiness to you and hubby , isn't love wonderful.

I believe cats to be spirits come to earth. A cat, I am sure, could walk on a cloud without coming through. ~Jules Verne

You will always be lucky if you know how to make friends with strange cats. ~Proverb

There are two means of refuge from the misery of life - music and cats. ~Albert Schweitzer

If animals could speak, the dog would be a blundering outspoken fellow; but the cat would have the rare grace of never saying a word too much. ~Mark Twain

The cat could very well be man's best friend but would never stoop to admitting it. ~Doug Larson

There is something about the presence of a cat... that seems to take the bite out of being alone. ~Louis J. Camuti

After scolding one's cat one looks into its face and is seized by the ugly suspicion that it understood every word. And has filed it for reference. ~Charlotte Gray

A cat can be trusted to purr when she is pleased, which is more than can be said for human beings. ~William Ralph Inge


There has never been a cat
Who couldn't calm me down
By walking slowly
Past my chair.
~Rod McKuen

Your cat will never threaten your popularity by barking at three in the morning. He won't attack the mailman or eat the drapes, although he may climb the drapes to see how the room looks from the ceiling. ~Helen Powers

I had been told that the training procedure with cats was difficult. It's not. Mine had me trained in two days. ~Bill Dana


If there is one spot of sun spilling onto the floor, a cat will find it and soak it up. ~J.A. McIntosh


A dog, I have always said, is prose; a cat is a poem. ~Jean Burden

If the pull of the outside world is strong, there is also a pull towards the human. The cat may disappear on its own errands, but sooner or later, it returns once again for a little while, to greet us with its own type of love. ~Lloyd Alexander

The cat seldom interferes with other people's rights. His intelligence keeps him from doing many of the fool things that complicate life. ~Carl Van Vechten

My cat speaks sign language with her tail. ~Robert A. Stern

In ancient times cats were worshipped as gods; they have not forgotten this. ~Terry Pratchett

Before a cat will condescend
To treat you as a trusted friend,
Some little token of esteem
Is needed, like a dish of cream.
~T.S. Eliot
( my favorite )


People that hate cats will come back as mice in their next life. ~Faith Resnick

Kittens are angels with whiskers. ~Author Unknown


When your kitty purrs to you, doesn't it break your heart that you can't purr back? ~Terri Guillemets

A cat isn't fussy - just so long as you remember he likes his milk in the shallow, rose-patterned saucer and his fish on the blue plate. From which he will take it, and eat it off the floor. ~Arthur Bridges

No heaven will not ever Heaven be
Unless my cats are there to welcome me.
~Author Unknown

Cats speak a subtle language in which few sounds carry many meanings, depending on how they are sung or purred. "Mnrhnh" means comfortable soft chairs. It also means fish. It means genial companionship... and the absence of dogs. ~Val Schaffner

People who love cats have some of the biggest hearts around. ~Susan Easterly

I will close with this last quote, it makes me think so much of YOU & CLYTIE. LOVE YOU BOTH SO MUCH !!

BETH , I HAD TO DELETE THE SECOND COMMENT AS IT SOMEHOW REPEATED THE FIRST ONE - LOL. DIDN'T THINK YOU NEEDED TWO COMMENTS SAYING THE EXACT SAME THING. HAVE A GREAT DAY MY FRIEND!

Such a Wondrous Place this Faery Space said...

Gosh your cards are just darling. I especially love when they were yours or sent by family. My friend, Rena and I adore snail mail and sending through the post. I appreciate your wonderful blog world you have! Blessings.

Paula said...

How very sweet, Beth! I love the water marks ... they lend to it much character ... and show that it was much treasured, even though it still is!! :))

I love this little card. Deers have always had a special meaning for me. Over the years I collected ceramic figurines of Deers. Thank you for sharing your Grammie's wonderful cards with us. I love looking at your blog.
