The Cat’s Meow In The Cupboard

Filed under: Animals,Thrifty Finds — Laura R @ 9:48 AM

I have been working on clearing out and reorganizing my main display area of the house, a built in china hutch between my galley kitchen and breakfast nook.
I am sure it was originally designed to hold the household dishes but when I moved in this display case was taken over by gnomes and dog figures and cat collectibles and, at some point, COWS.

Since they were pushed back behind other, more recently found treasures, I guess they were from my early days of farm living. Or pre farm dreams. 
Some will be spared but others are soon to find their fate on CraigsList or some other venue.
I love my thrifting but have come to the age where if I am not displaying, appreciating, and enjoying my treasures I want them to go to other shelves…in other homes.

I was browsing thrift blogs, as I prefer to do for relaxation and online window shopping time. On one of the link ups I saw a very familiar thumbnail leading to A La Modern.  The reason this got my attention is those Modern folk (Bryan & Linda) know their collectibles and valuables.  I was downright excited that maybe I had something good and had picked it up for a quarter or half dollar.

In the same cabinet with all those cows reside a larger and smaller version of clay cats. I apologize in advance for the fuzzy pictures. Those darn cats would not sit still.

So, they are not the designer cats described by A La Modern, but to be honest, I like mine better. Are they really designed to be Chia Pets?

 Only the larger one is marked.

You can see mine do not have the black outlined faces.

The question this week at The House On The Side Of The Hill is: What do you treasure?
While famous names might increase the value of simple objects I am still happy with low prices and objects that make me smile.

A Tuesday Treasure

Filed under: Animals — Laura R @ 7:05 PM

A blessing in my life right now are mother cats who are willing to care for kittens they did not give birth to. What makes it remarkable is that the birth mothers were not injured or worse. They did the birth process and cleaned up the kittens and then just walked away. There was no further interest, no remorse, no antagonism, just lack of any further interest.

No, I did not get a pig.  It was just an image too cute NOT to use.

And the multicolor kitten before the Who Rescued Who sign is not mine either.
If you happen to have one like it, I would love to add it to the family.

I promise to feed it and change its water and walk it and brush it and keep it out of trouble.
