the cat, the pink room, a strand of lights & the old maid


i found these vintage 1968 cards and saw sparkly ornaments. they look smashing together with twinkly lights and with vintage ornaments. after the holidays, they can hang in your eclectic home to add sparkle to each & every day.

each ornament is $5. i will be listing these on etsy on friday and want to give my blogreaders first dibs. the goldglittered ones feature a silverglittered letter or numeral & the silverglittered ones feature gold. all have a clear bead. shipping is $1.50 each, $2.50 for up to three and $3.50 for more than three.

the garland measures seven feet and each ornament is twosided with either two smaller old maid cards on the rectangular jinglebelled &pompomed dangly or vintage santacollaged diamond jinglebelled & pompomed dangly. the garland is tinselcity and is $25. it is perfect for a mantle (writing this with major mantleenvy), a tree or a doorway. (shipping is $3 and can be combined with ornament purchases.)

blossom the xmas angel
blossom discovered her climbing skills in fifteen minutes after i decorated, so i am going to let her have this tree & redecorate another, i think.

tomorrow, i take lucy mae & blossom in to get spayed. already, i am missing their mayhem over the next few days. those garanimals have been such medicine for the soul. there is nuttin like pottytraining a puppy to get your mind off of your real problems, is there? i will finish up this deadline & play nurse this week.

oh, by the way, if anyone reads my blog and you want to link blogs, please let me know...and i will link right away.

Love what you've done with the cards. Hope Blossom doesn't climb the next tree too! She better not chew on any fairy lights.

I love sparkly stuff too. The picture of the cat in the tree is precious. That is, unless you don't want a cat in a tree.

Love that Blossom. In her younger days, Nikki longed to climb houseplants that couldn't possibly support her 13lbs.
