A casual blog highlighting my life with kids, grandkids and kitties...Also an avenue to show some items from my etsy shops.
**Please note..The other half of my life is dovoted to helping feral and free roaming cats in Walnut and the surrounding areas. You can learn more and follow our activites there at Walnut Iowa's Feral Cat Program! **
Every year, over Father's day weekend for 29 years now, the AmVet's Antique Walk graces the main streets of Walnut~ This is the view from my workroom. LOTS of people, antiques, fun, food and a bit of heat this year!
Should you visit, you will find Miss Kitty and her rider ready to help you find a place to park. Miss Kitty is very friendly (oh, how I love those velvet noses!) and she graciously posed for this photo!
Vendors come from all over the country! These two are staying at my house for their 18th year! Theresa (left) is from Kansas City and Karin (right) comes from St. Paul Mn. Area. They are a delight and I love them both!
Grayson and her mom, Heather are downtown helping in Heather's mom's booth. The girls are selling pretty flower hair clips...see Grayson's???
I always find a bargain! This is a gorgeous chenille bedspread that I found right outside my front door. Its in great shape! My BFF Kathy in P-cola has been looking for one like this and hopefully she likes it...otherwise, it will show up in my Etsy shop!
And, oh yeah, FOOD! One can find everything literally from soup to nuts! I chose Tony's BBQ Bistro for lunch....bbq'd chicken sandwich, chips and an ice cold pop....delish!
Well, he's done it! Gibbs has wormed his warm little heart into ours and whined long enough to gain entrance to the house. He is the best cat ever! A big baby who just wants to be loved and live inside! Im giving him short visits for now. Soon he will be a regular and maybe spend the night in the house even. I still havent seen him use a box and until I see that, I harbor some distrust. MUST USE BOX...but like my bff Pam says, he is a smart boy...He wants to fit in and he will. The other 3 are getting used to him. Lucy is the most resistant, but her nature is to not like any change AT ALL, even if it involves her brother and sister. Possum seems to like him the best. They lay close by each other and just hang. I think soon they will be touching.
I guess if you are going to live in the country in a big old house, one might as well have multiple cats! :)
