Some nice glass dice beads a Jubilee house
and a few Lampwork beads, andsome Industrial chic too..
(this will be in my shop)

See below Cat? So how far does Love go..

Its been a painful journey with My beloved long haired Booboo. This cat has been my heart forever. Isn't she pretty? It hurts to let go of the people we Love, no less our pets. Ive had her for five years. She came from Virginia with us..she has history..a part of us. My Son brought his pug home two years ago and the cat was so unhappy really stressed never ever got used to the dog. She lost weight and her hair became dull. But we all persevered and my girl she did put on weight again but was some what still she was scared of the pug. The pugs is so friendly but how can an animal know this? She just couldn't. I guess cats act out and my lovely soiled on this lovely couch she did *both items. I could of died! Then she soiled on my other couch. I don't know why my husband didn't throw her out then but in shock I tried to be sensible. So heart in mouth I took Booboo to the Shelter. She cried the way in her carry cage, I brought her in bravely and held back the tears. Maybe I'm just not practical..or a bit foolish? But I CRIED all the way home..just sobbed. I called my cousin and friends and they said how could you do that would you want tomeone to do this to you? But no matter what anyone said I knew what I had to do. I went back on the Monday and got her. I took all the covers to the dry cleaners wow what an ordeal. Did the cleaners take the smell out? No. Thank God for "Natures Miracle". It took all the odor out! So after this was all done I have been very hesitant to put my furniture together again. I just couldn't go thru that again...

And here under these words is Booboo..

This was my living room two years ago. I hope to have it back to looking like this again this year!

This is how I lived for two years. Furniture all piled up to keep the cat off. What a way to live eh? How far does Love go? But this was the way of Love for me. Foolish well maybe, but I always felt **Something** would give that somehow something would change. I look at these pictures and now chuckle!

By the way this is the picture of mine of "What the Bears do in the Woods". I love this picture! We do store up treasures don't we?!

This is my other handsome chair that was covered..

You know I pray about alot of things in my life, and I always wondered how I would get back to normal with living this upside down situation. It had been two years. What if and when we had some family come to visit? My Daughter had gotten a new apartment. Two dogs she had and for some reasons they didn't work out and she had to re home them. She called one day and said "Mom I can take Booboo because my new kitten could use the company". I was like ohh okk but that's two cats and all. She said its ok Mom. So Booboo is atleast with our family still. But I sure do miss her little fluffy self. She hides over there sometimes being a new place and all and doesn't like the kitten but atleast its not the terror with the pug. Sometimes things don't seem fair tho. Maybe before long my Son will get a place and I can bring her home! I really miss her..

Yes this is a long post..almost finished!

I went here the other day. Houston is so so very crowded. No fields like in Virginia that I miss terribly! But I can drive by this reservoir for a mile or so all woods to a beautiful restful nursery. So I ventured to Cornelius..

Hard not to spend when one is determined to pay off her bills!

Look at this wonderful owl tree!

This wreath was $259 wow not cheap. Maybe next year I can make one like this one. Its so beautiful. Maybe today I can drag my husband out there to visit it..

A candy room and candy galore trees..

I bought this little guy on the left. He is now an orphan as I left his Mother in the store!
Looks like I will have to go back and get her..

What a cake! I had it in my hands! Even at $30 it was hard not to buy it. *Sigh when you are determined to pay your bills off!

TODAY.. My husband played his key board and we sang Edelweiss was so nice. It was pretty sweet as my two Parrots swayed as the music was played..

This afternoon we finally after months of waiting get down to it here is my husband and Adam drilling holes in my stainless table for the creation station for my Lampwork. We turned everything on and off and went over all preocedures. What will we do tomorrow? The same thing over and over!

And buy a fire extinguisher!

THANK YOU for stopping by..
have a wonderful day!

May the Lord Bless you!


I love the necklace you made.

Not sure what to say about the cat and dog situation. I wish he had someone else he could have take the dog to -- but things are what they are. I volunteer in a shelter and am glad you got her out.

Hang in there!


What a story. Poor cat. Looks soooo sweet! She lived in your house before the dog, didn't she. Did she ever go out, or was she an indoor cat? Hope she will end up liking her new home anyway. And how many animals do you have really? I have two and a half cats. My own two ginger ones, and the neighbour's longhaired cutie Atlas, who rather frequently comes inside our house, esp when it gets a little colder outside. Well we let him in, coz we don't have a cat door. But he actually comes up to the window and ask. Anyway ... christmas is coming ... love the decorating.
All my best, Malin


I feel for you and would have tried all those things myselg too! She is a sweet babe and maybe she will like another kitty instead of a dog. We are owned by my sweet Cinder and no others are allowed. One stray tried but she is way too territorial to share.

I loved the shop tour and the owl tree was fabulous!



Thank you Lori its been a dilemma for a few years now. Never thought the cat would act out. The couch is a bit pricey and I just flipped when she did it! It was like living in the dark ages with the room like that. But I miss her alot.

Malin yea the cat got the hit and it wasnt fair. Yet the dog never did something like that. I want to bring her home again now for my oldest Son to get a place and take him! Oh cats are so wonderful. I had her and my Sons pug is here. I have a quaker and a sun conure parrot too. Mess makers lol. Malin thank you for your sweet comments!

Thanks Kristen yes she was like that too didnt like other animals not fair tho.
The owl wreath maybe I can make something similar to it next year. Very pricey that one is!


Love the necklace!

Boo is happy, the little princess and does all she wants. No little pugs to run away from, just a pesky kitten who adores her.

I did offer to take the dog though, she is much better w/o a dog around ;) She is an easy cat to have around though. Unlike the little Orange Monster kitten.


I will have to come over and see Precious Boo today maybe?! xox
