It's been so busy here at the Animal House! Between wedding planning, house stuff, and my day to day life I haven't had much time for the things I love. Enough of that! It's time to remember what's important!
I started working on the fabric banners for the wedding. I had initially purchased this flower fabric for my bridesmaids dresses but then we went a different route with the dresses. So now with many, many yards of the stuff I thought I'd still incorporate it into the wedding as banners! I found this paisley eyelet lace fabric over the weekend and I knew it would be great paired with the floral! I'm also planning on doing some burlap banners. Fun!
Lately, I always have at least one embroidery project on hand. This is my latest! I love owls and this little guy is no exception. It's hard to see in the photo, but I used a metallic floss for his eyes. They really stand out!
So, the Ikea table finally arrived and I finally assembled it. I've yet to decoupage it (I'm waiting on the prints I ordered)...but in the mean time, my cats love the little cubby underneath. I placed their cat cube in it and the kitties couldn't get enough! :)
Speaking of kitties...you all remember Romeo? The stray kitty I've been feeding? I decided to have him neutered. Sunday evening I dropped him off and picked him up Monday evening. Because he's a stray, they ear tipped him (they cut off the tip of his ear...it's like a universal sign that he's been neutered). Poor guy also had to have his tail shaved due to burrs. They discovered one of the burrs caused a flesh wound and it was infected. So then I had to pay for an antibiotic shot...plus wound cleaning...plus flea meds. So what should have been a $42 endeavor turned into nearly $100 out of my pocket. It's ok...it needed done. One less cat to add to the overpopulation!
Saw my neighbors chickens running around the neighborhood today! Aren't they cute? I wish they weren't so scared...I'd love to pet one! :)
