house magic cat 4

house magic cat 4, originally uploaded by calamitysue.

Not just a cool mummified cat,this poor creature was found sealed in the foundations of a very old house.There was no way it could have got in there and died,it was probably killed and put there to ward off evil spirits. A tradition in England ,there are a few documented in Australia.Here is a website that goes into it.

Ive asked the owner of this image if I can download it and make a print.I think it needs to hang in the shack.

The Cruellest Month

Two weeks ago, my flowers looked like this.

Then we had a storm. It knocked down a bunch of big trees; the local town was declared a disaster area, and we were without power (and heat) for 5 days.

We were luckier than many people, who lost sheds, cars, and roofs in addition to power; nothing fell on our house except snow and the buckets of rain that ended the storm.

Maybe Spring's really here now.

I got this set of large late 1800s photographs at a local tip yesterday .They have the names dates and family info on the back.So I shouldn't have any trouble finding someone who is researching them.
It also gives me an excuse to visit local spinster and keen cyclist Miss Cato(one of the family names on the photos),93 years young.
