Zebras are Your Favorite ~ Letters from the Heart #atozchallenge


Dear Barbie

You wanted to take this last letter and celebrate the love of zebras!

These are some of the items found on your bookshelf.  Tall Cool ☺ne would be happy if you would dust them.


Cats can always be found hanging around in the office. There’s Chow Maine having a rest.

Oh you interrupted her when you took her picture.  Don’t mess with a cat when it’s sleeping.


Coffee time is always best in an extra large zebra cup!  Cheers!


This is a cross stitch made by your sister when she liked you. It hangs in your office next to your desk.  You wonder if she still does cross stitching.  She was very good at it.


Back in the day you used to call it “Buxton Chrome”!  Zebra Duck Tape ~ because almost anything can be fixed with duck tape…


Would you look at that? Another cat. Oh wait that’s not a cat, that’s a puppy.  Fernando, the transgender — he thinks she’s a puppy. 


You couldn’t bring yourself to tossing the cup away even though you can’t drink out of it now because of the crack. It makes a good pen holder (AKA clutter collector).  You hate that Starbucks got rid of the On-Line Store. 😦


More random pictures in the office. 


Very cool shower curtain.


Stuffed toys, or as Tall Cool ☺ne calls, the dust collectors.


Hats, well because they are fun to wear!



This is a wooden handmade zebra. One of the places you worked gave it to you.   That’s just a few of the random zebra items found around the office. It’s a fun hobby but you need another room if you are going to continue to “collect” stuff.  And you know who probably won’t go for that. Speaking of, here’s a song:


That’s it for the zebras and that’s it for the a-z blogging challenge.  Don’t forget to come back tomorrow for the end of blogging survey.  And try to keep in touch with all of the cool people you reconnected with and made new friends with.   Until next time. 

Your constant and faithful,

  7. Barbie,

    I used the yahoo email address you provided with your WordPress log-in info. Perhaps that one isn’t good anymore but if you want, you can shoot me an email at curiousasacathy@gmail.com and I can share with you again. 🙂

    Have a good day!

  8. Excellent collection! Do you own a Zebra mask?
    I like the cup = clutter collector description. Haha. Guilty!
    I have a room devoted to one of my (many) collections: the Smiley Bathroom!

    You are one of my new-found A-Z friends this year. I enjoyed your posts. 🙂

  10. That shower curtain is cool, indeed.
    Have you seen a Zebra in person Barbie? I’m sure you must have. I reckon, you could do a Z post easily for any number of A to Zs:)
    Congratulations and all the best to your daughter and you as you prepare for the new arrival in your lives.
    God Bless.

  11. Barbie,

    The first year I started sketching again in 2017 I did so using the A-Z Challenge to springboard me into action after years of procrastination. Naturally by the time I got to the end of the alphabet, Zebra, was the likely choice of my art sketch. 🙂 Collections are wonderful and fun but they do require an occasional dusting which isn’t so fun or wonderful. Wouldn’t it be great if such things didn’t serve as dust magnets?

    Well, my friend we crossed the A-Z finish line again together. I’ve truly enjoyed your letter series bunches. In fact, this is one of my favorites this time around. Your writing style and topics resonated with me. I subscribed to your posts via email at the beginning of the challenge, so hopefully it’ll prompt me to visit you throughout the year. I tend to get swamped with my regular blog memes and everything else gets pushed aside. Cross your fingers that I’ll improve in that area of my life. 😉

    Congratulations on a job well done, my dear! I plan to do a Reflections post but the Road Trips I can’t commit to at this point. I would like to but trying to figure this out is another story. *sigh* Oh well…have a funtastical weekend!

    PS: One more thing, you asked about one of my sketches. I sent you a message to your yahoo email regarding your request. Did you get it? If not, check your junk folder. 😉

  12. You sure love your zebra 🙂 Nice collection, I do approve of your SBUX mug.

    A boy we know was born with Niemann Pick C. His favorite animals are zebra, and fortunately he got the chance to meet them in their natural habitat in South Africa twice already. They were not sure he’d make it till kindergarten. Last week he turned 13!

    Congrats on completing A – Z! Nice re-connecting with you 🙂 Add me back on Facebook!
