Have you ever been somewhere and you see something awesome that just makes you stop in your tracks and think (or yell out loud) NO WAY!!! Well, I had one of these moments this past weekend. First I need to give you a little background. Hopefully most of you know who this is….

Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly

Now, if you have read my blog a couple of times you should also know who this is….

A naughty kitty named Holly Golightly

You see, Breakfast at Tiffany’s is one of my favorite movies. Of course it features Audrey Hepburn, but did you know that in the movie she has a cat named CAT? Anyway, imagine my reaction when I found this at a flea market this past Saturday….

A Cat dressed up like Holly Golightly!

NO WAY! This is a packaged of “10 refreshing, fragranced hand and face mini wet wipes in a resealable pack”. It has a picture of a cat dressed up as Holly Golightly. There was absolutely no chance of me leaving these behind. I bought the only two packages with this picture that the lady had. I am thinking that MAYBE, MAYBE I’ll give the second pack away in my 25th blog giveaway along with a bunch of other goodies to ONE lucky winner this time. Oooooh, I wasn’t going to mention this but I just have to because ( I’m an A type) something’s not quite right with these wipes. The manufacturer says these wipes are “My Pear Lady” fragranced wipes. They got Breakfast at Tiffany’s mixed up with another Audrey Hepburn film called, “My Fair Lady”. Okay, I know, I’m too picky and most of you don’t care anyway!!! I hope you all get some fun “NO WAY” moments this week, especially now that the Christmas rush is upon us. Keep reading my blog and watch out for my 25th blog giveaway!!!


Am I a CCL???? Are you?

So Martin and Adam are always telling me I’m a crazy cat lady (CCL). Let me set you straight.

First of all, I am a tried and true DOG person!!!   We decided not to get another dog after our dear Sainted Wally died, because with travel soccer, antique and craft shows and Martin working on weekends, we just don’t have the time.

Our Dear Sainted Wally. Rest in Peace.

But the house was very quiet and strange with no fur-baby, so we adopted a cat from a friend of mine who rescued her. My friend already has 5 cats and 3 dogs so she couldn’t keep this one as well. By now, most of you know her….. MISS HOLLY GOLIGHTLY!!!!!!

She is a cute, small cat who really loves to be held. She loves to be held A LOT. She loves to be held so much she meows and meows until someone picks her up. As a matter of fact, she is spoiled rotten about getting attention. Wally was never so bossy!!! Somehow she has wheedled her way into my heart though, and it occurred to me that, yeah, I kinda like cats. But why do they think I might be a CCL? These are just a few of the little trinkets from around my house and shop.

Here are some old mohair lions and tigers (big cats) I’ve collected.

This is a cute little “Dime Kitty” booklet from a bank. They used to give them away free to children to encourage them to save money. I had intended to sell it in the shop, but, well, aaaah, now it is in my collection. The very stylish 1950’s black kitty is on her way to my shop on Friday. I think.

This is some fabric I bought when my friend Peggy and I went to Pennsylvania this summer. It’s soooo cute! I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to cut it up to sew with. Maybe it can be my funeral shroud! Okay, too far, I know. And truth be told, I also bought this fabric on the left with puppies…..

Oh look, it has kittens on it too! Who knew? Okay, I knew.

But I am NOT a CCL. Real crazy cat ladies have like 50 to 100 real cats and their houses smell like dirty litter boxes. Real crazy cat ladies dress their cats up in costumes. And real crazy cat ladies eat cat food out of the can to show their kitties how good it is.

I only have one cat. My house only smells like a dirty litter box 50% of the time. I haven’t even tried to dress Holly up for fear of having my entire body torn to shreds, and I don’t eat cat food because I’m a vegetarian!

There, see, I’m not a crazy cat lady. Are you????
