I thought those of you who are on Facebook and have pets might enjoy taking part in this.

https://www.facebook.com/groups/Missysonlineshow/permalink/1236010193109550/?comment_id=1261589253884977&ref=notif¬if_t=group_comment_reply¬if_id=1483283689704983

It costs £1 a photo to enter payable by paypal. Every pet will get a rosette with special ones for the winners.

It is run by a friend of mine who has fallen on hard times, so entering is for a good cause as it will help provide for her beloved cats. I have entered my boys.

Hope you will check it out, I'd love to see friend's pets their too. Any pet is welcome.

The categories are
1: Pretty Girls
2: Handsome Boys
3: Cute Babies
4: Pets In Action
5: Sleepy Pets
6: Pets With Fav Toy
7: Mischievous Pets

he New Year is usually a time for Resolutions, and so we shall have them as our January theme as well.
Resolutions don't need to be bound to the New Year, and they can be anything, from small to big ones, like "I will never again challenge an Elf to a drinking contest" or "I will become the king of Gondor so I can marry my love".

Making resolutions is one thing, but keeping them is another, and so you can also explore the theme of keeping or breaking resolutions in your story or picture.

The deadline for this challenge is January 25th, but can be extended until the end of the month. If you need an extension to finish your story or picture, just write to the email below!

For writers: send your stories to teitho.contest@gmail.com. The contest is anonymous and the story can't be posted publicly until the results of the challenge are announced. Aragorn or Legolas don't have to be main characters, but at least one of them must be mentioned in the story.

For artists: Submit your picture into the Teitho gallery folder of Arda-Inspired at deviantArt. The picture should be new, drawn specifically for the challenge. State that you are submitting it to the contest in the artist's comments.
Happy writing and drawing!

Your Teitho-moderator,

I took part in the "Holiday Wishes" group and Silverlight made me this lovely artwork of my ginger boys.

My connection issues have been going on a week now and I can't stay online more than a few minutes, I called tech support and spent ages on the phone only for them to say they's have to pass it on the faults department and I'd hear what was happening in a few days.

So if I'm not around, don't worry, I'm just tearing my hair out at lack of internet.

Leo is still fighting his flu bug. He still stays by the radiator and is very unsteady on his feet but is more alert than he was.

I signed up for a Christmas Tree.

You browse Christmas trees and then send virtual goodies if you wish. It's fun that's stress-free and cost nothing to take part.

Here's my tree.

Teitho: December challenge "Doors"
Fri Nov 25, 2016 5:25 am (PST) . Posted by: mirach_ravaia
"It’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out of your door. You step into the Road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there is no knowing where you might be swept off to."
- Bilbo Baggins

As we stand on a doorstep of the new year in December, our theme for this month is Doors.



It's at the green round door where we first meet Bilbo and begin our Middle-earth adventures. It's a dangerous business indeed, stepping out of them. The story takes you through many doors and gates: through the secret door in the Mountain leading to a dragon's den, through the password-protected Doors of Durin leading to Moria, through the Dark Door leading to the Paths of the Dead and the seven gates of Minas Tirith, until you finally get to the very Black Gate of Mordor. How different it is from the green round door where everything started!


A door or doorway symbolises the transition and passageway from one place to another. It is both and entrance and an exit. An open door has been a long-time symbol of a new beginning. An open door shows that there’s a way out and can also provide a view of what lies ahead. A closed or locked door, on the other hand, can represent a dead end or create the feeling that there’s no way out. It is often used to symbolise the passage from one world to another in religion, mythology, and literature. You can use this symbolism in your story instead of an actual door or gate.



The deadline for this challenge is December 25th (Merry Christmas!), but can be extended until the end of the month. If you need an extension to finish your story or picture, just write to the email below!



For writers: send your stories to teitho.contest@gmail.com mailto:teitho.contest@gmail.com. The contest is anonymous and the story can't be posted publicaly until the results of the challenge are announced. Aragorn or Legolas don't have to be main characters, but at least one of them must be mentioned in the story.


For artists: Submit your picture into the Teitho gallery folder of Arda-Inspired http://arda-inspired.deviantart.com/ at deviantArt. The picture should be new, drawn specifically for the challenge. State that you are submitting it to the contest in the artist's comments.

Happy writing and drawing!

These are just adorable. I admit I was sorely tempted by one,(I'm sure you can guess which) but regretfully decided it cost too much to indulge. If you type "KATZEN" at the checkout you get a discount.

See if you can find your favourite pet.

As some of you enjoy my photography, I have created a couple of calendars and made them available on lulu.com.

I truly wish I could afford to give one to anyone who would like one. I make less than a pound from the sale of a calendar so this isn't a money-making venture, just a way to show off some of my photos. Hope you enjoy and will take a look even if you don't wish to buy.

http://www.lulu.com/spotlight/CalendarLady365

There are two calendars available, one featuring my cats and one of views and flowers.

If anyone would like a custom calendar featuring photos they especially enjoyed, just let me know.

The lady who owns these cats is a Facebook friend of mine. She is ill, but denied help under our heartless system. She loves her cats as much as I love mine and they keep her going. Please help if you can and share.

I came across these lovely art cards celebrating crazy cat ladies(I proudly proclaim myself as one). The artist helps cats in Greece and the cards raise money for the colony she cares for. The cards would be perfect for framing or sending to cat loving friends. I bought a couple and am delighted with them.
