These don't count!

A couple of days ago I received my 3 magazines from Amy at . I ordered the Christmas ornament preview, the Halloween issue and the 2008 Christmas ornament issue. I was really pleased with all 3 magazines. The halloween one has 6 or 7 designs that I want to stitch and the 2 Christmas ones have *loads* of things I want to do. Although I said that mags didn't count for my stash challenge, they double don't count as they were ordered before it there!

We have this gorgeous plant that we bought earlier in the year. I can't remember what it is called but have a sneaking suspicion it might be Boston Ivy. Anyway it is green through the summer but turns red in autumn and wow is it gorgeous. I can't wait to see it next year when it is more established. It should spread to about 10m eventually apparently.

This is a slightly blurry photo of our little wanderer - Biskey. I am wondering just why he thinks he is joining us at the dinner table tonight for his tea. Rachael was not impressed when she came to the table!!
And finally............
A while back I joined a site called The idea is you can exchange postcards with people. You send to a random person and when they receive their card, your address gets given to someone else to send to you. I took a photo of all the cards people have sent me so far. I may put an album on Webshots with them all.

Aww Biskey is gorgeous. Such a cute little face :o)

That plant is very pretty. Will it's leaves stay like that all winter or will it lose them?

He is a little cutey isn't he, but then I'm biased!! I'm not sure whether the leaves will drop or not. They aren't so far.
