Random round here

Remember the little plate I got at the car boot sale this summer? I hung in the cat’s feeding area. I love making every bit of my space beautiful to look at. (That little tray is there because Morgan is the messiest water drinker and splashes out more than she actually drinks)

Speaking of Morgan, what’s this about? That scrubby little cat is so skinny when she’s wet or when you pet her but can be such a little dumpling other times. (She is very healthy and slim though, so don’t worry.)

For anyone who’s ever felt badly, here’s proof that even if you’re 115 lbs soaking wet and have the cutest body with the longest legs, you’ll still be critical of your bum in a new pair of slacks!

I love getting the boxes of costumes and vintage clothes down from the loft storage. We’re now up to four large boxes plus a dressing rack, where the best vintage dresses hang, three hat boxes full of vintage hats, and one box full of shoes, purses and other little bits.

This ginko is in a little street corner park just two blocks away from me. It’s such beautiful golden tree right now I really wanted to show you. 🙂

      I am so glad I got to see this blog. Your black and white cat looks like one I had when I was young. I named her mittens. Also, I love the picture of the yellow tree.. Also, being a woman I can relate to the being critical of your self. although, you tend to get less so with age… I am 43 and around 40 stopped caring so much.

    Love the cat plate! We, too, have to keep a tray down for our kitty but it’s because he is such a messy eater. I think he has an overbite which makes it hard for him to eat wet food on a flat plate. When I’m around and he is in an eating mood I will hold the plate at an angle for him. Ah, the things we do for our pets! The golden ginko tree is gorgeous!

    Gorgeous Ginko tree. I remember when the first ginkos started showing up in our area, not that there are many even now. It is still a novelty. (novel-tree?)
    Love your kitty. We finally decided that those several- days- worth drinking bottles was the way to go.
    Even then I think ALL of my cats have to paw the water and I end up changing it daily anyhow.
    And they love to sit on top of the water bottle, which sometimes leads to a tipping tower.

    A golden Ginkgo! You can’t beat that 🙂 I love that you make every part of your house beautiful–such a delightful point of view. Got me thinking about what little things I can do in nooks and crannies….have a lovely weekend!

      Wow — that ginkgo is amazing! I had no idea it turned gold in the fall. Awesome!
      Love that little area for Morgan. So sweet!

          Yes, they are! And now, when they’re golden, is the perfect time for gathering some! They taste a bit like green tea, quite pleasant!
          I have one in a pot!! Which seems odd, but they get so big (eventually) I could never decide where to plant it!!

    In the morning I wrote my “Random 5” and in the evening I go look at the others.
    Morgan is so pretty and definitely satisfied with their own body …
    Oh I love boxes and baskets full of vintage clothing, I did not see long – this is sooo inspiring –
    The Ginko is a beautiful tree, I met today a ginko leaf pattern, carved in stone … what a coincidence!
    The plate reminds me of Art Deco.
    Have a great weekend

    ah … cats and water … long ago we bought a very heavy china bowl for the cats to drink from because our dear departed Gus used to push the bowl and slosh the water before drinking … sigh … Harry dips his paw before drinking …. thankfully our tiny kitchen floor is tiled with terra cotta (outdoor) tiles so clean up isnt too bad but i really wish they’d be neater drinkers, dont you?

    You are so sweet to create a pretty spot for your kitty. 🙂 Morgan is precious! She reminds me of my baby Waddles, who lived to be 21. Our cat Chase Bird likes to tuck his tail into the water bowl with his paw. I’ve never seen a cat do that, but he does. Then he drinks from the little pool that collects around his tail. Strange. 🙂

    Your kitty does look very happy and healthy. I will never be 115 pounds again, but yes I do worry about how my bum looks in new jeans 🙂

    Your cat is adorable! So soft, I’m sure. My fluffy cat does that airing out pose all the time. My short haired cat hardly ever does. Hmmmm! The “bum” photo made me smile 🙂

    Morgan the kitty is so cute! We have a fluffy kitty, Snickers that is a skinny little gal too and a messy water drinker!
    Your daughter is cute. Oh to be that young and skinny again. Well maybe not that young but the skinny part I wouldn’t mind.
    I love Ginko trees and they have such a wonderful yellow leaf in the fall.

    Your cats have a very pretty eating area. My husband would not be pleased if I made my cat eating area pretty. Love the fluffy kitty shot too. And that golden Ginko is stunning.

    Your cat!!!! well I have no words ~that photo is hysterical
    Yeah, we all wish our bodies would behave sometimes, no matter what our size is, lol
    That gingko tree is to die for! I love gingko leaves so much. You are very lucky to have one sitting so close by. Thanks for sharing that blazing gold tree!
