Marc Andre - Flower Elf wins URSA!

The kitties and I have been under the weather but all are fine now. They had an upper respiratory infection that they brought with them from the shelter and have had a couple of rounds of medication. I had something - who knows- but am fine.

We (cats, bears, humans in residence) we thrilled to learn of our little Marc Andre the Flower Elf winning the URSA award in his category in the recent competition held by Bright Star Promotions. I must pass along how he got his name. Well, you know our love of the Pittsburgh Penguins. Their goalie is named Marc Andre Fleury (that's flower in French). Get it??? At first he was to be a leaf elf, but he just looked so cute in the middle of a sunflower. Well, that's how a little elf gets his name. There will be lots of little leaf and flower elves - hope you like them!!!

You are so sweet, Ruth! I do love this little guy. I still can't get them quite as small as yours. It's amazing how huge a 10 inch bear seems after making an elf! Thank you so much for leaving such a nice message! I hope your fall is lovely - we're still pretty warm here!
Hugs back - all kinds!

Thank you so much Paula and Megan! I so appreciate your kind words! The kitties are fine now and filling our days with joy - except when they want to play at 3 a.m.!
