A Little Romance, A Little Business, A Little Housekeeping

Getting a little housekeeping done here today....
and I don't mean the kind that requires AJAX although it is badly needed!

Taking care of some needed posts and combining them into one:

First, an update on kitty!

Here is my sweet Sissy cat when she was just a wee baby,
ten years ago.

Let me hear a collective "Awwwwwwwww!"

 Here she is, a grown up, "big girl"
We took her to the vet today to have her stitches out.
About a week ago or so she had surgery for a very bad laceration
to her back foot. There was a nasty stray cat who attacked her so no more going outside for Miss Sissy.

The vet was thrilled with how it was healing and said "it has healed better than it had the right to heal!" I think he impressed himself!

Either way, I am impressed and so happy she is better.
Thank you for all of the wonderful and kind words of cheer
you sent to me!

And for a little romance this week I was thrilled to see
my new ad in Romantic Homes Magazine!

Look at all of these other shops,
led by creative and bright women

I feel honored to share the page with them! 

Thank you to Erica of Meadow Street for creating this ad template
for me. I get to replace the picture each time with whatever I want.

Here are some of my latest finds... some with pink and some
with a bit of an Industrial touch.
I just added a new category for those items
that are a bit metal and a bit rusty.

Hope you have a super weekend!
Now, to get to the house cleaning...

Linking to Pink Saturday!

I am so glad your Sissy is doing better and that she will not be going outside anymore....she may not be too thrilled with that, though!

Your ad is so pretty, I saw it in my Romantic Homes. Erica always has beautiful ads!
Love all your pretties, but those two darling china jars took my fancy!

YES! Wish you were there at that estate sale! It was out on Wheat Road right next to Coia's Nursery. I saw A LOT of things you would have loved. Got some nice stuff and am looking forward to future posts featuring them.

LOVE you recent finds - and the Industrial Revolution is a hoot - American Pickers, anyone??

Now, about the violet cup and saucer - it totally is from the same set that my Lily of the Valley Shelley piece is from and I'm wondering if I ought to add it to my collection . . .

I'll be browsing the shop in a bit . . .

She was the sweetest kitten!

Glad she is healing up.

Romeo the Kitty here says "Meow and please get well meow!" to her.

He also says "If I were there to protect you, meow growl, you would never have gotten hurt!"

Rom is a stay inside kitty too, he understands...poor girl.

Pets and love to your kitty.

GRATS on your ad - love your stuff, best successes to you!!

First time visiting your blog and it's absolutely LOVELY! I've become a follower and will be checking back soon. Also, glad your kitty is well! My cat LUCY was attacked Fri. right at our house by a stray cat! All is well with her...she lost some hair, had a slight limp, and was scared. I'm sure your business will be successful! From one sweetie to another....Roxie
