sunshine, lollipops & rainbows!

hi there!

well, my new years resolution to blog more regulary seems to have fizzled out before it even began. but i have so much stuff to blog about, really i do!

first things first–this has been happening over here:

 sonny n lucy

i tell ya, the last 1/2 of the year was a hard one. i lost 2 of the greatest cats (old age related illness) and my sweet bunny pal (old age, natural causes) all in about 4 months time.

in october i adopted sonny (the big guy, and the paw model from the last post) and then a couple of weeks later lucy (the little grey one) showed up meowing on my front porch. she was teeny tiny! only a few months old. i heard her and opened the door and she practically ran right in. since the moment they met they have been the best of friends, so it is pretty much sunshine, lollipops and rainbows around here these days.

and while we are on the subject of lesley gore and cats, please enjoy this video.

 i found this incredibly cute unfinished needlepoint at the thrift store a few weeks ago, so perfect! it looks just like little lucy!

little grey kitten!

oh, and here are a couple more cute little embroideries i found recently…


bunny in the bathtub?!

now i think i will take a tip from that bunny and go take a soak!

    Such a cute post Hannah! Sorry to hear about the loss of your furry babies. It hits hard doesn’t it? Your two new pusscats look adorable!

    thanks! they are so sweet, and so sweet to eachother and my other 16 yr old cat, which is usually the tricky part.

    So happy and sad for you. we went through a very similar time a few years back (now we are back up to maximum pet population and all the hilarity that brings)
    it’s so great that you are on the sunshine side of things.

    thanks lisa! oh my gosh i forgot how rambunctious these youngsters can be!!! i was so used to my old-timers! but so much fun, at least when they’re not breaking knick-knacks.

    I have that toadstool needlepoint, too. I inherited a partially-completed canvas from my boyfriend’s mother, taught myself needlepoint, and finished it. It made my laugh to see the same one here!

    that’s awesome liz, totally worth learning how to needlepoint for!
