A Spot for a Convalescing Cutie....

  This is my beautiful Victorian Bed.  I purchased it from a friend's antique shop.  She knew it was perfect as soon as I said I was looking for a full size Shabby Chic style bed!

It's so short that I can't imagine anyone taller than me sleeping here, and
I'm 5'2"!!

 As far as Shabby Chic goes, it's the "real thing".  Someone painted over what I can only suppose was once a gorgeous rich cherry wood.

Just threw this in for cuteness sake....
Something about a fresh made bed, that always attracts the kitties.

My babies, Sadie and Pippa.

Sadie got spayed this week.She's a tiny thing
and it took a long time for her to come out of the effects of anesthesia.  
Watching her do so was a trip! 

When I say she's the real thing, I mean she has the scars to prove it...

 Just a few shots of the shabby parts

Cherry wood showing through.

They don't make em' like this anymore!
Check out the gorgeous detail.

Carvings and Curves!
Purr-fect Spot for a Convalescing Cutie....
 I found this pretty pink chenille bedspread at an estate sale a couple of weeks ago.
My original plan was to make cottagey seat covers for my dining room chairs.  
The kitties and I are enjoying it on the bed for now!

Miss Sadie is doing well.  She has even been outside a little with me close by. 
She takes her medicine like a champ.  She is the sweetest, most docile thing anyway.

Miss Pippa will have her turn but she's still so tiny - only 3 pounds or so.

Much as I love my girls, I don't need more kittens!  

Only wish my babies would stay little forever....

Have a wonderful week!



P.S.  I have some exciting updates coming soon for my etsy shop!  That will be my next post!

Can you believe it's Wednesday, well nearly Thursday already??  That makes it time for "Share The Love Wednesday"!!  Wouldn't miss it!!
