Feelin the Love

So, if you know me you know I have a weakness for Eames era things. I have a crazy affliction for chairs - I can't explain it... it just is. Just look at the image headlining this blog. Seriously, there are a total of 14 (14!!) period chairs (this includes the dining chairs that are reproductions) in our 1400 sq ft house. Not including my Aeron office chair and two stools. Oh, and two vintage chairs in the garage awaiting a makeover.

Anyhow, my husband gracefully deals with my addiction and on rare occasions feeds it. Yesterday he was very excited to present me with these stamps. Not only did he buy the stamps, but he bought 3 books of them (2 to selectively mail out and one to keep for myself - duh!), and apparently he had been stalking the post office waiting for these stamps to come in. So much so that the day he walked in and they had the stamps the lady behind the counter saw him and excitedly yelled "Eames!".

I'm definately feeling the love ;) Now, who is going to be lucky enough to recieve these lovely stamps... hmm. I may just have to keep them all to myself!!

Update: As if the postage stamps weren't enough, these came in the mail yesterday! Rubber stamps with an inkpad. I instantly want to stamp every surface in my house now!

If I dodn't know any better I'd think someone might be trying to butter me up or something ;)


Crazy kitty can't catch a break

Just when things were going well. We finally built a screened in enclosure for our outdoor cat PK. It extends off the back of the garage an has a kitty door into the garage so she can go in and out. We had been keeping her in for longer periods of time (especially at night) which reduced all the little scratches (and some big scratches and bites) from fights. Everything was going peachy, until...

Sunday morning I walk out to feed her and let her out to roam a bit. I found her sitting on top of her cat tower with a gash from one side of her face to the other, bleeding and sneezing... ugh. After a 2 1/2 hour trip to the vet emergency room and $300 bucks, she had to be sedated and needed several stitches. Even the vet was baffled by how such a strange cut could have happened. I think she actually said "If only you could talk little girl, you'd have some kind of interesting story..."

Best we can figure, we found some blood and bird feathers on the chicken wire surrounding her enclosure. That crazy kitty tried to pounce a bird on the other side of the wire! From the looks of it she almost got it too. Bet she'll think twice before trying that again. At least I hope so...


That crazy kitty

This photo was a total fluke. I was taking pictures of some class cups and after she inhaled her food she came to investigate what I was doing. As you can tell she's still licking her chops. I thought it was funny but it's probably one of those faces only a mother (pet owner) could love! hehe... it cracks me up!

She's much more attractive in person - I swear!


Pure Life Soap Co.

I LOVE these products! Totally organic and everything feels/smells so fresh! I bought my first bottle of the Coconut & Guanabana lotion a few months ago at our local natural food Co-Op store but when I went back recently to purchase more, they no longer carried the line!!

I found them on sale here and just ordered a bunch. I won't need to buy shampoo/conditioner/lotion for quite a while now! Yippeeee!
