My mother sent me these lovely creatures for my birthday this year. Aren't they adorable? They're going to be a regular addition to our mantle in October I think.
They were made by a friend of her's who had almost lost her sight. She passed away recently and I know my mother thinks about her a lot, so I feel very special having this momento to remember my mother's friend and remember that even when something terrible like failing eyesight happens its all about how you react rather than the circumstances.
