Welcome!

Welcome to my world!


Can you spot the festive visitors?




Santa makes himself comfy on my desk...

Green glass kitty hangs around all year 
- she matches the lamp!

She insisted on being included,
as this is Cat Whisperer's blog after all!


And of course, the little tree,
bedecked with ornaments new and old...

Vintage publications grace the table
 on which the tree sits...
Representing Britain, The Illustrated London News...

Inuit: The Night the City Sang.
Many many years ago,
when I was just starting in this field,
as a student assistant,
my boss would gather us "kids" at Christmas
to listen to a reading of this book,
a charming tale.
This book comes off the shelf every
Christmas to sit under the tree,
and I recall the wonderful time we all had,
and remember fondly,
this special lady who left us too soon.

And of course, French Canada - this is Quebec after all!


There is something so lovely about vintage decorations.
Over at the main library,
my colleagues got busy with a new twist
on a Christmas tree,
using books!

How cool is that?
"
Behold! Our beautiful tree, created from Forbes,
Fortune and The Economic Journal –
with some Church History added to the mix!
Topped by The Great Atlas of the Stars,
opened up to the Omega Centauri –
the largest globular cluster in the Milky Way!"



The tree is complemented by a paper star,
fashioned from discarded magazines,
a trick learned from YouTube of course!

  1. Thanks for the tour of your space. I do love the book Christmas tree! Hope you had a pleasant and warm Christmas and I wish you a satisfying, contented 2015 with a few good adventures. Should I wish you another cat? : ) Sheri
