Photo A Day Challenge - Day 15 & 16

Day 15: An Ordinary Moment

A familiar sight around our house,
my little Daisy cat on the bed against the pillows (atishoo!!)
...she fell asleep during the (N)ieews:)

I received some lovely comments
on Fat Mum Slim's Facebook page about this one...
"So dreamy" & "Gorgeous cat".

Day 16: Two Things

My vintage copy of "Pride & Prejudice"
& my little mp3 player...something old & something new. 

 This copy of Pride & Prejudice is very special to me.
There is an inscription in the front:
my grandfather's signature; the date: 1943; & the place: Johannesburg. 
It also contains some lovely illustrations inside by C.E. Brock.

 Charles Edmund Brock (5 February 1870 – 28 February 1938)
was a widely published English line artist and book illustrator,
who signed his work C. E. Brock.
 He was a very successful illustrator of the books of authors such as
Jonathan Swift, William Thackeray, Jane Austen, and George Eliot.

Well that's that for today...I'm still working on getting my office/studio
ready for the new year. Sorting papers and throwing stuff out...
...purging so to speak.
I didn't have a worktable in here, just a desk
(which is always cluttered)
but now I have a desk and a worktable!! 
The only problem is...3m x 3m rooms can only contain
that many pieces of furniture and art & craft supplies.
So there is major reshuffling of "stuff" going on.

Love & Blessings
