Night is lifting 

and so are the memories 


The Castle of Butter's past.

Tea Rat has taken it upon


to look into his tool chest

and bring Butter Castle

back to its former state.

He built a new chimney

and applied the stone and brick

on his own

while Rattus repaired 

the chandeliers.

(Thank you Penny and Jeri for your suggestions!)

Wandering and Wondering

The night had fallen 

but a luminous companion in the sky

led the two travelers toward

the frozen ledge of a horizon.

There, situated as if on a looking glass

stood an abandoned timbered castle.

"I'm beginning to wonder old man, where I've seen 

this dwelling."

"Has your mind wandered away from you son, have you

forgotten the spring of your wonderings? 

This is


"But of course old man; this was our destination

the day I faced the giant, the day we met 

Bebe and Miss Moussie.

Our travels began somewhere...oh, where

were we going, please remind me."

We were going Nowhere and to our great delight

it took us 


we wanted to be."


Wishes for a wondrous 2017



The Dutchess




and to all who have passed this way.

-I am sorry little Mouse...I can't make it..
-What is wrong Big tell me..
-My heart is to heavy..its keeping me down..

The garden is glowing

with the dancing wicks 





It's in this garden

eight years ago

that I met a mouse

But this mouse

did not scurry from one end of my patch to another

but rather

from one side of the Atlantic

to this side of 


Dank goede vriend

for telling us the story 

of a Big Bear and a Little Mouse

for sparking the creation of 

Tea Rat and Rattus

for entertaining Bebe and all the other characters

of our improvisation.

We have fond memories of you.

Welcome Spring with Bebe

Spring has arrived with the sweet scent of flowers.. Come sit with me dear friends,  and enjoy the day. Please do not startle me, as I am taking a wee nap under the tree... Maybe Miss Moussie  would bring a basket full of goodies,  and I know Tea Rat would have plenty of Raspberry Tea.. 
Rattus, do you have a butterfly net? 
Love, Bebe

Please join Bebe for a picnic in Nowhere...

shhhhhh....May I tell you a secret ?  Bebe is hosting a picnic  in Nowhere....

I wonder if this book will help me locate Bebe...

 I better get going.... That owl may just beat me to it..

 What the! This is not the zoo!  Does this mean I have to go home?

Hello my dear Nowhere friends. 
It won't be long now.. Valentines day is in a few short weeks, no?
So I have put out some luscious grapes, cheese (yum) Italian bread and must not forget the TEA....
So please sit awhile... Enjoy nature, good friends, a lots of food!

Maybe if the weather permits, even dip our tiny toes in the water. The weather in Nowhere is always beautiful!
Love and kisses


Dearest Bebe and friends, can I, can I PLEASE 
bring my horse Neptune to the picnic?
We promise FREE rides
all day long along the banks of the creek.
