This is where I get to say anything I feel like saying and you get to agree with me.
We will also share stories and chocolate if you have any.
Naps are also encouraged, if shopping is out of the question.

Feeling Catty

This is the brother of the cat we used to have .
This was the last litter from the breeder.
William Wegman, the man who likes to photograph dogs, loved photographing these cats.
They are really doglike in their way, they are not the typical loll around and nap cats.

I want another one.

Winter Projects

I am planning projects for the Winter months to come. When it is like today, icy cold, snow covered ground and nothing better to do than stay home where it is warm..and there is no risk of sliding and being stuck somewhere .

I have a very large bedroom. It has   His and Hers closets. I also have 2 large chests of drawers.
I still seem to need Places to put Things.

So using this as an example, although I don't think I will go for the wooden crates, maybe something a bit more modern and finished .. and white .

Just for the shoes alone, this is a brilliant idea.

so this is one of my Winter Projects.

Do you make projects when you know you will be staying in and needing something to occupy yourself ? or are you happy to just loll around and enjoy being home and not having anything to do ?

Happy winter, lolling or otherwise ~

Someone get me out of here


So ... I would go for the British understatement and say ''We got a bit of snow overnight''.
But who am I kidding ?

I am buried in snow !! I won't be out til July !!!

God took pity on me and sent me a neighbor with a snow blower thing that cleared my driveway so at least I know that if I have to run for my life, I can get at least as far as the end of the driveway ..
It is quite beautiful.
Someone get me out of here.

Baby, It's Cold

Yes, it is winter. Time for people to pull out the woolies and thermals and put nice soft blankets on the beds and throws on the sofa and pull the drapes closed against the cold dark nights.

But the magazines are showing these posh apartments belonging to so called designers and they all look so uninviting, so cold and doctors waiting room-ish.

Who wants their living room to look like a hotel lobby ?
Who wants a kitchen that looks like the bar in the hotel we stayed in in Argentina ?

If I am going to start decorating according to magazines, I am going to dig up some French mags, they have rooms with drapes all over the place, doorways etc ... they have big fat sofas buried in pillows and soft throws to keep you cozy.
Color and warmth .. that is what the every day person wants in their life.
In their homes and especially in winter.

These opinions have been brought to you, free of charge, from Me.
Sitting here nice and cozy in my little office with the chenille sofa and pillows and throws and drapes framing a view of snow. brrrrr.
