Halloween Pillows with a Vintage Touch!

It time to decorate for HALLOWEEN!!!

I just LOVE vintage greeting cards & was so excited to find some fabric printed with lots of the old images!  I especially like the ones with CATS on them (of course).  The sentiments are great too - love the "Jolly Halloween" one!

I made 3 cute new Halloween pillows & appliqued the fabric image blocks on the front with a blanket stitch.  They are all in the SHOP right now so have a look & have fun getting your house all decked out for the holiday!

Feline Friday - Foster Furries

Little Frankie
Here is my latest crew of foster furries.  They are 4 littermates - 3 tuxes & 1 lone gray.  It took me a few days to learn to tell the tuxes apart!  I have them for 2 weeks so they can grow big enough to be altered & placed for adoption.  They are SO adorable & playful! 
I LOVE the picture of little gray Frankie on the chair with the stuffed bear!  I'm a bit partial to him because he's the smallest & sweetest of the bunch.  He also has the same name as my late dad & that makes him even more endearing to me.
They are all eating well & using their litter boxes ~ with the exception of someone who had diarrhea yesterday & left several small deposits on the floor for me to clean up!  I later ran to the grocery store to mail an order & looked down to discover I had poop on my sleeve!  The life of fostering kittens!

FALL IS HERE!  Have an awesome weekend!

New Cat Nappers!

I haven't made any of my Cat Nappers in a looong time ~ sooo...
I got busy sewing last weekend & kicked these 4 new ones out!
The stores have such adorable fleece prints out right now.  These turned out super cute & they even come with matching handmade TOYS!
If your kitty or your friend's kitty needs a special treat, check these out in my Etsy Shop!

Time for a Halloween Painting!

Look what you can do with the top of an old FENCE PANEL!
We had a fence repaired recently & I rescued the tops of the panels that got chopped off.  They are the cutest "house-shaped" wood blocks & I knew I'd have fun coming up with some creative paintings for them! 
Just HAD to do a haunted house for Halloween season!  Really happy with how it turned out.  I sanded the wood but love how it's retained all the texture & knots ~ gives it more charm & character I think!
You can find "Trick or Treat House" on Ebay ~ just click HERE!

I am SOOO loving this COOOL weather that's finally here!!!  FALL is my FAVORITE!!!
