We're "Up!"

According to Momcat, Up is one of the best movies ever. She just got home from seeing it in 3-D with Philip and Jill. She spent a lot of time talking to Maggie about it, so I'm assuming there must have been a DAWG or two in the film.

It was an up day for lots of reasons. Jill surprised Momcat with some "thank you" goodies for the French Lick vacation the two of them went on recently.

Look at this gorgeous tool caddy. Closed.......


...... and open. Jill even supplied the essential tools for all sewers on the go.

These beautiful note cards feature old-fashioned quilts. Momcat and Jill both love Civil War and early Americana quilts, so these cards are perfect.



Next are a couple of darling pairs of quilty earrings. Momcat wasn't able to attend the NQA show in Columbus, Ohio as planned, so Jill brought this lovely bling home.




Amish Booty

While at French Lick there was an outing to an Amish Flea Market, restaurant and store. You've already seen the concrete geese, scary dolls and sweet chicks.

Momcat loves little cubbies. She was excited about these finds.



This is a table top cupboard. It's big enough to hold cat treats. At least, that's what would be the most logical thing to hold. Momcat may have other ideas.


The above is a spice drawer and an Oatmeal Cookie scented candle. My guess is some sewing notions might find their way into the little drawers.


Every quilter keeps a list, but how many actually have quilt designs on their papers?


This towel rack will find its way onto a kitchen wall eventually. Sometime in the next month or two the kitchen is going to be painted. The towel rack should be a nice way to display the towels, especially since Trouble likes to pull the current ones from the handle on the oven. For some reason, our beans don't like to dry dishes with towels that have been on the floor.


Maggie Update

The other reason Momcat is up is that Maggie has grasped the idea of using the backyard as her potty. She hasn't yet discovered the best way to get our beans' attention. She seems to think that they should just know that she's staring at the back door.

On the other hand, even with a bout of diarrhea, she's made it outside all day after coming to get Momcat. I hate to admit it, but she's a good doggie.

Since I have vast keyboarding skills, I've been giving Maggie spelling tests. She knows how to spell only one word so far.

I hope you have an Up day, not filled with poo.

My mum used to have a cat that had to be locked into her room at night. When squirty wanted to go out, mum had put a long string of Indian bells on the back of the door, and squirty would go up and push them, letting mum know she had to let her out, so she could run out of her cat door and pee.

Wow, being able to make your pooh into letters would be awesome!!

Nice to meet you.

Momcat you got some good goodies!!
Glad you all had a wonderful time, and found some great finds.
A lot of dogs are just that way. They just stare at the door and that is better than clawing the door, or barking and barking. I just keep track of my dog. It gets easier with time.

UP is amazing, and I can't wait to go back when it comes back to our drive-in theater. What great finds! Well, except for the creative writing in poo...
