Feline Slumber

On my walk the other night, I came across this little cutie. I’d seen her on a previous walk whereby she threw herself at my feet for about a 5-minute pet session. She’s an older kitty, a little sway backed, a little bony. But so friendly and sweet. I loved catching her mid-nap. And I love the tile address sign on this house. It’s a very cute little cottage.

Living in a Nutshell, book signing and crafting shindig

Last night, my belle mere and I went to a book signing at Warwick’s in La Jolla. The book: Living in a Nutshell: Posh and Portable Decorating Ideas for Living in Small Spaces. The author: the smart, fun Janet Lee. But, this was no ordinary book signing. We not only heard the author’s story, but crafted these really cute tassels using a wine cork, velvet ribbon, and pretty paper. And, yes, that is a bottle of champagne and a cupcake. Now, this, my friends, is the way to host a book signing. The cupcakes were delicious; made by the author’s sister. Her parents were there also; an adorable couple. Her dad invented microsurgery. Yowza! Creative people.
More pics from the event:
Mary’s hands, putting on the finishing touches.
This yummy champagne is called Courtage. Made in France, of course, by a group of Americans with a passion for bubbly. Quite delicious and light. I need a case of the stuff so it’s always on hand. The bottles are tiny. Just enough.
Finished tassels.
Peace, love, and happy Friday,

Gwynnie Loves Saylor

Gwyneth is a certified snuggle bug, and she loves Saylor so much. She’s always snorgled up next to her. Evidence to follow, and this is a mere sampling of the pictures I have of these two love bugs.

This and that

On a walk the other day, I came across this little new cactus bud. It was like: hi! look how cute and new I am. *snap* And pardon the blurriness.
Also on a walk, this house I like to go by has chickens free ranging in the yard! Well, hi there, chicky! *snap*
And here’s little B. (short for: Katie Bee), mowing down some wheatgrass. She loves it.
Nom, nom, nom…
Peace, love, and Tabbies,
