    1. I know how you feel! :(

      It's been far too long!

  5. Aw, these are all really lovely!

  6. this is so filled with animals! :D Love the bug brooch x

  7. This post made me smile! Goodness, I can practically hear Julie Andrew's singing "brown paper packages tied up with string..." Thanks for sharing the happiness.


  8. I would die if I found a toad that small - so awesome!
    I wanted to get a case from Casetagram but I'm too scared I'll drop my phone and it'll shatter without an Otterbox of Lifeproof case.

    1. Ya know, I always thought that too but couldn't resist cute phone cases so I got rid of my Otterbox and *knock on wood* it hasn't broken yet. I'm also a phone thrower - not on purpose but like when I'm walking and swinging my hand my phone flies out. That seriously happens more than I'd like to admit and it's always just the case that breaks. I think having a screen protector might help too!

  9. That Dane is beautiful. We used to raise Great Danes when I was little. I miss them. :( They don't live long enough. Such gentle giants...

  10. this is cuteness overload! i love that little toad!


  11. My word, that brooch and buttery fly photograph are amazingly beautiful. What's making me smile today? Thinking about my time at the Paul McCartney concert last week: http://tinyurl.com/mu2bzps

  12. I really thought that brooch was a bug and thought it was the most amazing looking bug I'd ever seen, haha.

  13. All of this is great :) But those pictures of you and Elycia are priceless. Have you seen Milo in person yet?!

  18. Animals and mushrooms and plants make me happy too. I love my own kitties and succulents and houseplants just as much as you do. (:


  19. Are you a Disney Princess? That is the only explanation I can think of that makes you such an animal magnet. I am so jealous!!!


  20. Where's Maggie these days?

    1. She's been busy getting into trouble with Crum! But seriously, she's doing well and growing like a weed. I have the cutest picture of the two of them to share soon.

  21. Gorgeous photos! That tiny toad compared with Crum! :)
    I've always wanted a Casetagram but never ordered one. Maybe I will :)
