My House Guest

The prodigal Grandkitty has returned for a visit.  Yes, Mo is staying with "Granny" while his mother roams around Europe.  Diane is presently in Italy.  Took the night train from Paris.  Paris was apparently amazing.

So I have not done any bragging on my blog about this amazing feline in quite some time.  Since the blog is slow in the scrappy department, this seemed like the perfect time.  Yes, I will throw caution to the wind and risk losing followers.  ;)

Here he is in all his glory... the basement dweller.  He does enjoy his floor of the condo.  What could be better than a large area to run in,  a patio window to look out of and a LazyBoy recliner all to yourself to nap in?

He does venture upstairs for visits especially if he thinks chicken or treats may be involved.

A sunny afternoon nap on Granny's dish mat is always relaxing.  (Don't judge me.  I can justify gross germs when it comes to spoiling my zoo of animals.  I know... What would Martha say? hee hee)

I noticed when looking at these photos of Mo that his fur looks a bit strange.  I then remembered Diane telling me that she gave Mo a haircut a while back.  Poor Mo.  Apparently it costs $200 to have a big furry cat like Mo groomed.  Diane would rather buy shoes I'm sure, so home cuts it is.

Mornings are always a great time to hang out in the dining room where it is sunny and there may be reflections on the wall.

Oh, what a beautiful boy he is!

While I'm on the subject of bragging and beautiful.... here's a very recent photo of Little Thomas!  What a big boy he is becoming.  A sweet little man with such a cute short haircut!

I am thinking this photo might be great to scrap with some of the new MME with all of the wood patterns!

The last photo I have to share is of Lady catching a weekend morning cuddle with her favourite guy.  I am pretty much ignored on weekend mornings when this guy is home.

Just to redeem myself as this actually being a blog that shares something creative or crafty,  here is a peek at the shawl that I am knitting for my mother.  I am about 5/6 of the way done.  I thought it might be nice to warm up her shoulders.  I love the vibrant colours in this yarn.

Before signing off,  if any of you have some BG "Porcelain" that you are needing some inspiration to use, take a peek at CSI this week!  Could it be any more perfect?

You may also be interested to know that there is now free downloads each week that go with the palette and challenge.  A great way to stock up on some good free stuff!!

Happy Scrapping!!  Jen  :)


  1. Woow Jen what a precious cat girl!!! I love cats!!!

  2. Mo is such a pretty kitty! He has green eyes like my previous kitty, but the coloring kind of similar to my kitty now. My kitty love laying on the top of the sectional where she can watch out all the windows, being she is up high enough and the location. Yes, the wood grain perfect for that photo!! I am getting some in next month's kit. ;) What a pretty shawl!! I am sure your mom will love it!! Happy Easter!! Hopefully, the snow is disappearing. We are supposed to be getting temps below freezing at night here now. What is that going to do to all these blooming plants?
