ceci n’est pas un alpaga

IMG_4761

..but it’s the closest thing to an alpaca I’m ever going to own! Last summer I stayed at an alpaca farm where I met my yarn provider. He and the other alpaca boys where grazing right in front of the house when we arrived.

Straight from farm to yarn, what’s better than that? I bought one skein of yarn and this week I finally finished a scarf, just as the weather is getting warmer.. Yeah, yeah, I know I should plan ahead and start knitting warm wooly things in summer and to crochet summer tops in January. Next time. Some day. Whatever.

*but to stop knitting and hooking? Never!

tigger warning!

even the bittiest
the itty-bitty-bittiest
of smiles can make you
TIGGER HAPPY!

😜🎈💫

even if it’s real sappy
or just a plumsy pun
you shouldn’t pass by fun
or a moment in the sun!

💫🤪🎈

so keep springs on your feet
be ready to pounce on a laugh
to chase down every tickle
and to bounce, even in sleet!

I know this will come us a great shock to you, all the more so if you paid a considerable amount of money for your “pashmina”, but I can no longer hide the truth:

The Authentic, Original pashmina is MINE.

Some poor ignorant soul had donated it to a charity shop, which didn’t know any better so instead of contacting Christie’s or Sotheby’s it sold it to me and didn’t even charge that much for it. What can I say, though, except c’est la vie..?

PS. Oh, why haven’t I sold it through Christie’s or Sotheby’s for a staggering pile of money? The answer is very simple: There are countless bills, bank notes, cheques and coins in the world, but only one Authentic, Original pashmina! 😀

..if the Mona Lisa was on that wall there’d be so many people in front of it that you’d only see their backs (and bald spots..) so enjoy the peace and quiet.. #mindfulness #breathing #quietmoment #relaxation
