Thursday Things

The Mommy's been on a buying spree lately. Some stuff for her, some stuff for us. Most of our stuff is still on the way (as is some of her stuff), but she's gotten some of her stuff so she wanted to show you kitties and beans what she's gotten in case you might be, y'know, interested. Other than the first thing, we don't know why you would be, 'cause it isn't toys or treats for us and so why would you be? *sheesh* (The Mommy sez: Kids! Be nice!)

~~~
The bestest thing that came is another new blankie! Our friend Peggy of Peggy's Place posted a few more of her hairy and fuzzy blankies early last week. We just love the two hairy blankies we already have (you can see photos of us on them *all* the time), so The Mommy thought she'd get us another one, this time a fuzzy rather than hairy one. It's a pretty burgandy and white, and just as soft as the hairy ones. Here's Sassy trying it out (she seems to have taken it over the most, although Callie really likes it too):


You can see it right up next to one of the hairy blankies on the left, and the difference between one that's hairy and one that's not, especially if you bigify. (The snowflake blankie underneath the new burgandy/white blankie is totally different...kind of a microfiber thing.)

Thanks, Peggy and Mommy!

The Mommy also has gotten some really cute kitty cards from a few places on Etsy. The first to arrive came all the way from England! She got these lovely two sets of cards from Zoe at Zozocards (images used with permission):



Zoe has some other really cute things, too, check her out!

~~~
The Mommy got some really neat mini notecards from Caprice Creations. Caprice had a set of mini notecards listed for lunch boxes -- like to tuck in for the beankid to find at lunchtime? -- and one of those was a kitty that said "Purrrfect!" underneath. The Mommy got a custom order of just a bunch of those, in different kitty colors. She also worked with Caprice to come up with a custom card that has a couple of kitty paw prints that say "Pawsome!" underneath. Here's a couple of photos (images used with permission):



Caprice has a lot of neat handcrafted items in her store.

~~~
The Mommy also got this really nice set of pen and ink reprint cards from Deb at Mortie Doodles (image used with permission):


They are really lovely, very intricate artwork. She has all sorts of other things at her store, too.

~~~
More to come another day, but we hope you've enjoyed seeing these things! Some of these cards may be making their way out there in exchanges or paw it forward packages once we get going on those, so maybe you -- or you -- or even YOU -- will see one even if you don't buy your very own.

Ta!

Your Mommy is really on a spending spree! Maybe she can talk to our Mommy about getting a hairy or fuzzy blanket? She waits too long and then the one she wants is gone!
