I'd have bought it but it's not in my price range, anything under 25 grand is just for doing the housework in and you know me and housework.  It would make a nifty dreamcatcher with the moonlight shining through.

Stunning, but which pure silk gown would I wear? The gold or the lavender? I suppose either would do.

River, it's winter, you'll have to go with velvet. A matching ring would be nice and I can see Angel with a small one for a collar. Isn't it lovely spending non-existent money?

Annie O, I really needed that but isn't it just like a cat to struggle to drink from half full when there's a full bowl right next door.
I leave fresh water for the Bear but he'd rather go out and drink the manky birdbath water.
