"A Keepsake Day"


Today is a "keepsake day".
The softest snowflakes are falling all around me.
They are falling on my head.
Their landing on my eyelashes and my nose.
I treasure keepsake days because they make my heart happy.
Each day is like a huge surprise, and I don't know what to expect next.

Today, I have something that I want to tell you.
I wanted to tell you before,
but for some reasons the words did not come from my lips.
You see, I remembered long ago when you- my friends
said "Tweedles, you should write a book".
I listened to you, but I did not know if I could do it.
How could I- "the Tweedles" - write my words in a book ?
After pondering my thoughts for many hours days and weeks
the words came together.

A year ago this " keepsake " was born.
Some of my favorite poems and stories are on the pages.
I still remember each adventure.
I still remember those special "keepsake days."
I feel them in my heart- just as if they happened yesterday.

Soon I had enough poems and stories
for yet another keepsake.
Where do these words come from, I ask myself?
Oh I know ! They come from "keepsake days"!
Now volume 2 has been born!
I am much greatful to Auntie Melissy Life is art ... Art is Life -
for helping and inspiring me, and for designing my beautiful keepsakes.
And I thank all of you, for encouraging me!

I wish I could send everyone of you my keepsakes,
and I am sorry that I can't. I wish I could!
If you want- you can check them out in my little store on my blog.
Now I am going to catch some snowflakes in my paws
and make another keepsake day!
Nitey nite
love
tweedles

Oh Tweedles, I can't wait to read your new book. You know how much I love your first book. I may have to wait a few weeks to buy it (something about my silly assistant having some unexpected expenses lately), but don't you worry, I will be ordering it as soon as I can.

Would you believe it is 80 degrees here! Enjoy your lovely snowflakes.

Love, Pip

Tiffy said...

I have never heard of a keepsake day but I love it. The idea that a day (or every day) is a keepsake is very heartwarming. I treasure each day just like you do.

Congratulations on your second book. I just know it is as wonderful as the first. Momma told me she read the first one and it was magical. Maybe one day she will buy the books for me.

Oh tweedles is this not just the best news! A second keepsake. I really had no doubt that you could do it though. Mum did not realize you even had a first one. When i save up enough allowence i am going to get both.

Please do feel upset that you cant send everyone a copy. For those that cant buy one they can still enjoy your blog, which is just as wwonderful!
