Faery Gifts from Diana Heyne


Diana sent me a beautiful Faery set similar to this one. So far I haven't got any decent photos as I don't have a camera anymore. 

Thank you so much, Diana!

Hugging Chair



"Hugging sofa that'll make sure you'll never be alone again"

A very short story inspired by the hugging chair on Bored Panda.

I

I wake up feeling strangely smothered. I had fallen asleep in my chair. As I try to get up its furry arms tighten around me. "Nooooo", it growls, like the Godfather talking through a mouth of cotton wool, "I love you! I am all you need!"
II

It is two days later. I lie in the chair, which is now befouled with my own refuse. I haven't eaten or drunk anything in days. The chair will not let me go. I think I will die here.


III

My vision is going black. The chair is crooning a lullaby in my ear.
