Yesterday Jessie and Violeta had a play day.
Alex took lots of great photographs!

Jessie made herself comfortable in Violeta's bed, right in front of the fire.
Life is good!

 Jessie wants to take this bed home with her.

Great photos Loll and good to see that Violetta and Jessie are such friends. Your maple leaf is a beauty and wonderful with the gold foiling on the white and the gold layer behind which shows it off beautifully. x
