Caturday: Roar

Posted on May 12, 2012 and tagged Personal, Art & Photography with comments

Isn't it the best when you unintentionally snap a photo of a kitty with their mouth open? It makes Marshall look ferocious, but really he was just mid-meow.

Here are this week's links:

  • I'm just dying for a pretty floral dress, like this one from Anthropologie.

  • I'll never understand why one day I want to dress all in flowers like a girl and the next day all in triangles like some... iPhone case from Society6.

  • Speaking of Society6, I'm in love with this print by David Fleck. The sky is beautiful and the detail in the building is incredible.

  • When I found this tote bag the other day, I laughed because many years ago when I was really clueless (even more than today!) I ordered my first business cards with 'stationery' spelled wrong. Luckily I noticed before I gave them out to anyone.

  • If you have love/hate relationship with Pinterest like me, you'll get a kick out of the Pictureless Pinterest Twitter account. It's hilarious and you should follow them. While you're there, you should follow me too!

Have a great weekend everyone. Say hi to your Mother for me.

Caturday: Nap Time

We have a bean bag chair and it's one of Barney's favorite places to sleep.

Here are this week's links:

  • I came across Gimme Bar this week and I'm loving it. It's the same concept as Pinterest except you can keep your items private. In addition to collecting images, you can grab tweets, videos and text. It's proving to be very valuable at keeping things organized (and private) for blog posts.

  • These little Vitriini glass boxes are so beautiful. Perfect for keeping jewelry.

  • Here are the perfect colorpop jeans from Madewell. I love them in purple...and red...and green. I'll just take them all.

  • You may have already seen this on another blog, but the Things I'm afraid to Tell you project that Creature Comforts started is just wonderful. Tons of bloggers have participated, and list keeps growing.

Caturday: Furball

Last week you saw a baby picture of Barney, so this week I thought I'd dig up one of Marshall. Wasn't he just the fluffiest little guy?

I'm going to do something slightly different this week. I wanted to tell you about some of favorite Etsy shops that I've been admiring lately.

  • If you follow me on Twitter, and you should, you may have seen me tweet about a dress I just bought from Jessalin Bueutler. They have some of the coolest minimalist patterns and all the clothes look so comfy!

  • I love the combo of collage and embroidery at Selflesh. The prices are fantastic for such unique art and when you buy a piece you're buying the original. Can't beat that.

  • Prunella Soap is no secret on Etsy, but I had to mention them anyways. They have a huge selection of handmade and organic soap in every scent imaginable. Bonus: it's all vegan! I love the little travel soap too, so convenient and great way for them to use up scraps.

  • Lastly, Old New House is an amazing vintage shop. Some of the items are not cheap, but if you're looking for an extra special piece you're sure to find it here. They also have a beautiful collection of antique rugs.

Caturday: Baby Picture

Say it with me now, "Aaaawwwwwww!" This week for Caturday I decided to dig around in my old photos to find some baby pictures. Or should I say kitten pictures? This one was taken when Barney was about 5 weeks old. Don't you love it when kittens are right in the middle of playing and in an instant they're fast asleep?

Here are some things I found on the Internet this week that I thought you might like:

  • I made these mini vegan donuts this morning and it's taking all my will power not to scarf down the hole batch myself.

  • Make your own colorful string-tie envelopes with this great tutorial.

  • This is one of my favorite Photoshop tutorials. Add a pretty ombre effect to your photos.

  • Lastly, this cat serving tray is just killing me with cuteness. I need it now.

Have a great weekend everyone!
