I just love getting mail, especially when there is a box of felt included! I ordered a few shades of pink (getting ready for Valentine's Day), a teal and purple that I think will look great together, and more green and red for Christmas.

In the last few days I've made some Christmas ornaments and a candle/jar wrap that I will soon add to my etsy shop. I'm also considering adding a shopping cart to my website for those that don't want to join etsy. That involves more html stuff that I don't understand, but I'm hoping the program I chose to use plays nice.

We had a crazy storm run through yesterday with 70+ mph winds and I discovered a design flaw to the cat house I built with my dad for the kittens that showed up on my deck in May. That's a long story that I will save for another day. So since the sun is shining and it's a beautiful day, the cat house got a cleaning. New hay and clean blankets, and left the lid/roof open to dry out. Good thing we decided to put down that sheet of vinyl flooring as it made clean-up a breeze. Yes that's right, the cat house has vinyl flooring...left over from a bathroom remodel at my parents' house. Thank goodness my dad saves his scraps! It also has insulation and a shingled roof. Only the best for my feral cats!

I'm hoping the beautiful weather made the kiddo's school field trip to the national park that is practically in our backyard a lot of fun. I'm not even sure what they were doing there, but that seems to be par for the course with a 13-year old.

I hope you are having beautiful weather where you are!

Blog changes

Thanks to, I've added a fun new background to the blog, then threw in some buttons from some of my favorite blogs/sites and even made my own button to share. Whew! That's nothing for some of you html wiz kids, but now I need a nap! I'm going to continue playing around with it, but if you happen to see something that doesn't look just right or a link that is broken, please leave me a comment. Thanks!

Another great blog

I found this blog a few months ago and just started "following" it. I'm a sucker for a good flea market find and have been known to bring a few things home off the curb. A dresser, a piece of wooden fence, a small table. You just never know what you might find driving home.

Check out At Home With K. She has a great eye for what something can become with a little bit of elbow grease and paint. Her style crosses many different decorating styles, so you are sure to find an idea to fit into your home.
