The rat and the rooster

In Chinese astrology the rat and the rooster is not compatible - as both are competitive creatures. Rooster is outspoken, keen on the spotlight and grabbing attention - the natural defense of the rat is to nag at the rooster. However this was not the inspiration for my design, our beloved pet rat died over the weekend and I thought it would be fun to include a rat in my design, they love to sit on a height and look at their small world - I will miss her inquisitive cute little face. The rat and rooster and fan graphics are from Graphics fairy - linking to Brag Monday.

I simply have to share this beautiful picture with you, it is my friend Liesl's two cats - Gertjie in front and Hester at the back taking a nap, the photo was taken in her cottage - I just love the purple flowers ( it's actually some kind of poison weed - me think). Hope you are having a peaceful day!

I am so happy to be back after a hectic month. You probably think this is a very odd collage, but if you could have a peek into my mind right now, you would see all kind of odd things ;) The golden frame/scroll from Graphics Fairy, Karen has so many of these beauties on her blog - if you haven't visited her blog yet, please do, but don't blame me if you become obsessed!
