Of course affection can be bought!
I've been stocking up on Love from Geneine Honey since her early perspex phase. There's really nothing not to love about the Australian designer's range of quirky and well-crafted accessories.
Frank the Sausage Dog is my latest paramour. He took a while to arrive (poor Frank #1 got lost in the mail) but you know they say "you can't hurry love".
Hopefully, Frank will fill the void that Matthew the Mouse left in my heart since that fateful day last winter when he didn't come home with me. Not that Matthew is that easily replaced! The moment that I realised that he was gone, I went to Tatty Devine (another great place to buy love) to try to procure one of his brothers but they were old, and crunchier and younger models have taken over.
All I have to remember darling Matthew by is this photo, taken during Chinese New Year last year (it was the Year of the Rat). Sometimes, I still dream of staring lovingly into his Swarovski crystal eyes and stroking his velvety leather ears...hmm...happy days.
I hope Frank is here to stay for I just can't bear losing another good piece of wood (filth not intended!). He seems pretty happy going on walks with the Likkle Bwoy and I think he's looking forward to going to Singapore one day just so he can mark his spot under my pal Poochie's apple tree. I love cheeky boys!
