Furry Friday (and a Sneak Peek!)

New fabric has arrived! I'm so excited to share this first peek at Cuzco (pronounced Kooz—Koh). More on the inspiration for this collection soon, but for now, spread the wings of your imagination and venture to the mountains and valleys of Peru...
And here's some Friday Fur!

Furry Friday

Earlier this week, i was cleaning up a bit and noticed that (one of) Franny and Lou's kitty beds needed a wash. So i plunked the bed by the kitchen door and went down to the basement to toss the fabric liner in the laundry. Didn't take long before "someone" discovered their bed in a new spot, and i tiptoed to my camera to snap these:
The bed looks terribly uncomfortable, but they love it — no matter where it is! In case you're wondering, the bed is called the Kitt-In Box™ (get it?) and i bought it on the Refined Feline website. Some pretty silly pictures on there that show how this box is "supposed" to be used.

On another topic, out in the garden two of my favorite daffodils are in full bloom. This one is called Pink Charm:
And this one is called Stainless:
I bought both varieties from Brent and Becky's Bulbs, and if you're looking for some unique spring and fall blooming bulbs, i highly recommend them!

It makes sense that i'm showing you these on Furry Friday because we planted Stainless several years ago in memory of our beloved cat Mitzy, who had the purest white fur under her chin and on all four paws. Every spring when these bulbs come up, we're reminded of all the beautiful seasons we had with her and how, even in her absence, our love is ever-blooming.

Have a wonderful weekend!
