"A Christmas Gift for Tabby"

I have got a little needle,
And I've got a spool of thread,
And a pretty piece of satin,
And some lace and ribbon red,
And I'm goin' to make a cushion
For old Tabby cat, because
The only place she has for pins
Is to stick them in her paws.

~Amelia Price Avers

(From Little Folks Magazine, December 1906)

  3. Hello, my friend!
    It seems so long since I have been able to visit!
    What a precious poem. I am sure your girls are busy making little gifts for all including your kitties!
    I want to tell you that I just love your profile photo! It should be on a book cover ~ it is so very Jane Austenish!
    Hope you are enjoying your preparations for Christmas and getting everything all of your little projects finished!
    Christmas Blessings!

  7. Oh, Marqueta!

    Thanks for your lovely encouraging visit to my blog today.

    I'm quickly putting yours into my Google Reader so I don't miss a thing!

    That poem is precious...I love kitties but my own allergies go rife when one is around!

  8. Dear Marqueta, what a lovely poem. I can just picture it! I love the old bits of beauty and wisdom that you share.

    Love and hugs,
