Those Darn Cats & Purty Pearls

OK, so I'm too cute by half, but I'll blame it on my boy cats here. They just do some of the goofiest things and most of the time, my camera is nowhere near. Well, I got a sequence today that taught me something, besides being very entertaining.

When Red Kitty drinks from the faucet (which he loves more that anything except eating food) he actually lets all that water just sort of run over his face before he actually puts his mouth into the act. I wondered if he was sort of feeling his way over to the right position, or if he's using this chance to sort of wash his face? Today I realized that cats actually don't mind water too much, on their own terms. I made some video clips of Purrmeister playing in a running faucet that was filling a watering can. I hope to edit and post it when I get a chance because he's very enthusiastic about playing with that stream of water.

Purrmeister's new napping spot--a metal basket used to store magazines and catalogs. It's my fault--I sometimes drape a sweatshirt or fleece over the edge and he turned it into a little nest.

I'm starting to post some of the new pieces with silk and pearls in my Etsy shop--I can't get over the colors I came up with and I still have nearly a dozen to post yet! These are just so much fun because they are so versatile. I also love how soft they are where the crocheted silk chain rests on the neck or is clustered around the wrist. You quickly forget you're even wearing them--so if you are into looking good AND being comfortable--give this little invention a try!

The colours of your new necklaces/bracelets are just so lovely Karen. Especially the blue to wear with a white shirt and a jean. So elegant.
And yes, i vote for a video of Purrmeister playing with water. This little boy is so cute. Funny to see too red kitty drinking from the faucet.
Thanks for sharing a part of your life.

We love to play in the water too. Tabatha loves the faucet and Khaki plays in the water bowl with his paws. But when I try to take a picture,of course they immediately stop.
The colors in your jewelry are really nice. I like them a lot. Have a great week end.
Oh, and of course Purrmeister is as cute as ever.

The deep ivory is AMAZING. I'm not sure if my redhead complexion could pull it off, but I'm in love with it!

Love from the farm girl that bought the red pearls for her sister's Christmas wedding... (I plan to send you another picture...)
