~ It's Been Awhile ~

Boy time sure does fly whether you're having fun or not! I can't believe it's been this long since I posted something to my blog. I've been preoccupied with my beloved feline daughter Katie, she's been having health issues since October, something is amiss in her throat. She had surgery, in January, to remove a mass, which was diagnosed as a granuloma, yet her condition remains unchanged. She seems otherwise normal but her voice has changed dramatically and it appears to be uncomfortable for her to purr. She gulps constantly and coughs occasionally when purring so I know there's an irritation there. I keep hoping that her body will heal itself and that she will get back to normal, I do love her so.

I've also become quite obsessed with Pandora jewelry, collecting charms and creating bracelets, a pricey addiction it is! This weekend though I'm concentrating on completing my seasonal decorating so I should have some more pictures to post in the coming days. This is what I've done thus far:

atop a cabinet that sits in the family room:

black stepback cupboard, also in the family room...hooked mat and pinkeeps were made by Stephanie of Olde Colony Primitives and the red wildflowers are available in my shoppe:

and the foyer table...that Charleston lamp is one I offer in my shoppe as well as the greenery which are the artificial herbs sprays:

...that's about it for now friends, have a great weekend!

Hi Janet! Everything looks beautiful!!! You have quite a knack at decorating and putting things together... I am loving all the spring flowers I purchased from you... they are wonderful and give my house such a nice spring touch!
Has your vet ever suggested that your cat may have asthma? We have a cat that had a very deep purr and coughed quite a lot when he tried to purr .... He has been on an inhaler for several years and is doing much better.... It's just a thought.... We were all surprised that a cat could have asthma!!
Hope you have a great weekend!

...Pandora jewelry is lovely and I could see why there should be a Pandora Support Group somewhere, very addictive. :o)

...So sorry to hear about Katie. Hopefully she is on the mend and with time she will get better. I know the love you feel for her, I feel the same towards my furbabies. Sadly, this morning we had to have our lil' schnoodle named, "Salty", put to sleep. She was 13 and had Cushings Disease and a battle with bladder stones, she lost the battle this morning. It's so, so hard to say goodbye. :'o|

...I will keep lil' Katie in my prayers.

...Have a lovely day & love your decor too!

Your decorating style is splendid as always Janet! Bringing a bit of springtime indoors is the perfect tonic this time of year.
