It's Show and Tell Monday!
These are a few of my favorite things! Like Pink Fridays at Make Mine Pink!Visit us this friday for all things related to tea parties!
Well I stopped at a yard sale today. I spent $19.00 and I bought several things. A David Dart suit for my girlfriend Rebecca and another little suit in a purple gause. It will be great for the summer..also for Rebecca. I got a bust of a Flamico dancer. (She needs a little work on her forhead.)A really beautiful silver cigar band ring and my favorite of the whole sale a box of old buttons.
I just can't resist that old jar or cookie tin filled with old buttons.I feel like a child .Sitting on the bed sorting and looking at them.
The colors and shapes. are soothing and pleasant to me, I know you know what I'm talking about.
When life gets tough and the endless complaining about the economy gets to me I am grateful that a $2 box of buttons can bring me so much pleasure.
This is a rare photo. Her name is Lulah. Every time I point the camera at her she runs and hides so I never get shots of her.
Jewels on the other hand poses for pictures.He is the orange and white kitty in the slide show.
I live in L.A.in an apartment (the building is pink.Can you believe I just realized that!ha ha ha Oh Inka!) It isn't really busy on my street but it is
Jewels is big on hunting, actually gathering he always brings his catch up alive. I have gotten very good at catching mice and the like and putting them out on the balcony to save them from cat games.
One night last year my cat Jewels and I heard this meowing. Little tiny "meeeuuus." But when ever I ran down the stairs to try and see where it was coming from. It stopped.
I finally gave up trying to find it and went to bed. Then at about 3 a.m. I heard some very loud screaming kitty sounds.I ran down stairs in my night gown to see what on earth was going on and there was Jewels with something in his mouth.
The little creature was kicking him in the head but he wouldn't let go of the catch. I shouted at him to put it down and there she was as tiny as a mouse. She was in full on Halloween cat mode. Every little hair on her tiny body standing on end all the way to the tip of her tail.She bolted.
Jewels stayed down stairs all night.he is such a loving creature.But when it was time for breakfast he gave up and came upstairs. Don't think that cat will ever miss a meal.
I heard the meowing and went down stairs one more time. This time she was so hungry and tired she let me pick her up.She was no bigger than the palm of my hand and skinny. I think she was about 5 weeks old.I brought her upstairs and gave her watered down cat food. She had little tiny teeth so she could eat. I thought I would find her a home.
Well you know how this story ends. I named her Tallulah after Tallulah Bankhead because she was so dramatic.Her name got shortened to Lulah.
That was just too much name for such a tiny little girl.
She got that round kitty look in a couple days and was healthy. She still won't let me touch her. But lately she has been coming into my bed at about 3am to get some cuddles. Once in a great while I get to pet her. She loves Jewels and comes when he calls her. Sometimes I have to tell him to leave her alone. He cleans her so much she will get soaking wet from licking.( I could hardly type that it was making me laugh so hard) So sweet.I'm patient and giving her all the time she needs.
This is a great lesson for me in business.Be patient and my business will warm up as well. Give it all the time it needs. But most of all don't get so crazy trying to make it happen that I lose sight of the joy in a $2 box of old buttons.
See you for tea on Friday!
