The week in review


Some weeks are a breeze and others test you to your limits..This week was one of those.. My dearest Ethel got sick... we fought and we fought but it was no use.. sadly we lost the fight and my dear little girl headed over the rainbow bridge! I miss her so much..She was my inspiration.. my friend and a superstar! She will live on through my work and in my heart.. We had rainbows and sunrises..She'll ALWAYS be my orange!

My inspiration.....


I nursed my dear little girl for three whole days... We tried SO hard but she just couldn't fight the infection...

On our last full day together she was weak but still my beautiful little friend..




At least we got to have breakfast together.. And I got to tell her everything I wanted too..

I miss that little orange furball!

As a tribute.. I took a photo of a fairy hamster puff in the woods..


The woods helps me clear my head... And I can feel her all around!



I took my new camera to the woods too..


I love the spooky effects! And polaroids are magical!




I am selling hamster fairy puff sets in her memory in my Etsy shop



For EVERY pack sold I am donating £1 to the Small Animal Rescue Society..

Her memory will live on!!!


She will be missed by EVERYBODY that followed her adventures..


I have been so touched by the hundreds of messages I have received about her and can be happy that she made so many other people smile so much..


Here are a couple of tributes from friends on Flickr




How special!?? People have been so so wonderful and it's meant the world!!!


Here's MY tribute..








Also last week it was Dad's Birthday! Poor Dad.. twice around his birthday I have lost a furry friend!

I did him a funny doodle..



Well I had to do SOMETHING!
He baked him own cake for goodness sake!

Haha..It was coffee and it was DEEEELICIOUS!!!


So as ever... Sunshine..Rain.. Happiness and sadness.. But it all helps to make us who we are..

Here's to a sunnier week... Make it special!

Sweet dreams little Ethel...



Hello guys.. I am so sorry to have to share this news but sadly on 21st January 2012 
my dearest baby girl and tiny orange sidekick Ethel took a trip over the rainbow bridge to heaven.

I am writing this with tears in my eyes and hoping that it will help me come to terms with the loss of one of the most amazing friends I've ever had.. Just a hamster they say... And I feel sorry for them because they will never understand.. She was something completely magical in a hamsters body..

On October 10th 2010.. I walked into the pet shop after losing my tiny rescue Robrovski Rosie and saw her there....
The chubbiest ginger ball of fluff I'd ever seen!

"I've got my eye on a little fat ginger hamster" I said... Then I took her home on the bus.
We loved each other... She was a star!

I spoilt her... She made my heart fill up a little every day so we were quits!
She's was awesome.. My tiny sidekick!

I miss her... Right now my rainbow has no orange!
But it will be back.. I will be back.. But for now.. All the sunshine I've given
Can I have a little back? Please?



This is the rose I have chosen for her pot... It's happy and orange and named REMEMBER ME..

Perfect..
