The Greatest Gift


A simple feast of jam and bread,
a bit of crafting with needle and thread,
a scary film seen to the end - 
all are much nicer when shared with a friend.


I'm sad to report that these two
have had a falling out over a certain handsome teddy bear.
Friends no more.

  2. What a shame! Anyone can see these two are made for each other. Some dolls are just all looks and no brains, I think. ;) Love their starry eyes.

  68. I don't know how you think up these things, Amalia! You just keep on topping yourself. And this one I can easily see made into a movie with the two stars above, which may or may not be a film for children. And pretty soon we'd be seeing these two setting records in the merchandizing market.

    Why not pitch your idea? And I'll be able to say I knew you when!

    1. What a wonderful idea, Dewena. Thank you so much for that and for your kind words. One of them has quite the sharp tongue so it may not be a film for children, but it could be fun. I promise not to forget you when I'm famous :-)

  70. I had a good chuckle out of that, at the expense of those two, I'm sorry to say! I hope that they make amends, because no teddy bear is worth losing a friend :)

  74. Amalia, your posts make me smile every time. These are so cute, and you're right, it's nice to share time with a friend. That's why I love my blog friends so much.

    Those birds of paradise are such unusual flowers, aren't they? You were one of the few who thought they were beautiful. I think they're different but pretty as well, and I used the pics for my post because they look like people's profiles hehehehe.

    Have a lovely weekend.

  91. Oh so sad they had a falling out (I'd like to see that obviously handsome teddy bear too)! I really enjoyed visiting your blog for the first time and scrolled around a bit -- I am deeply ashamed to tell you that I did not know where Haifa is and had to go away and google it. So I learned something new today as well as getting to look at your beautiful pictures and enjoy your wonderful poems. Thanks for having me over :>)))

  93. Yeah that happens sometimes between friends:( Hope they make up or each find other friends! Sorry, for being slow with responding lately to your nice and kind comments! I think I caught a bug from one of the grand kids at Easter, and have been fighting to get my health back.Today I'm feeling better for the first time. So here I am, inviting you back to Seasons this week!
    Changed the beginning date to Sunday instead of Monday to give the bloggers overseas a little more time - I gave the others an email, but all the Dutch people I couldn't find the email (wonder if the Dutch internet gives more security!)
    Hope to see you at SEASONS before Wed. 7 pm, US Pacific time with one of your beautiful photos:) Have a beautiful week!
