A big thank you to Thea!!


     And a big, fat hiss from Yes Dear, lol.  She was not a happy camper with me today.  I got her cat charm in the mail, and it's adorable!!!!!  I love it Thea, thanks so much.  I bought it for three pounds twenty five pence, which is less than five bucks, if my calculations are correct.  I did have to pay extra for shipping, but that's because I'm in the US and Thea is in the UK.  I sent her a message on her blog, where she showed a cat charm, and asked her if she would be willing to ship to the US if I paid her extra for it.  Turned out, she would be interested.  I asked for shades of purple and this is what she worked up for me. 
Here is a pic of YD modeling her new cat charm.  I held it up so she could sniff it first.  (I think Thea must have a cat or two, cause she was using her Jorgenson's Organ to smell it.)  Then I hooked it on her collar.  It was hard to do cause the clasp was almost too small.  I pulled my hand back and YD started looking all around for it.  Then she shook her head, and realized it was on her collar.  Freak out city!!!  She kept trying to pull it off.  It is very sturdy though, and withstood about ten minutes of her pulling and tugging on it.  Finally, she gave in and decided to wear it.  It was too cute.  She gave me this exasperated look, like, "Why do you do this to me?"  Please note, this is the only thing I've EVER hung on her collar.  She doesn't like wearing the collar, and she hates the harness even worse.  Poor thing, lol.  Anyways, she looks beautiful in it!
     I have a nice talk with Jules and with Rosa tonight.  Not together, none of us have three way calling.  Julie and I somehow (Don't ask me how, I do NOT know) got onto the topic of terrible porn movie names.  She used to work in a video shop with a back room for adults only.  She was telling me some of her faves, and we were both laughing about it.  The funniest was Shaving the One Eyed Snake.  I thought that was hilarious!!!  While I was talking, I got some done on my Midnight Hunting.  And then I realized...  I don't have a couple of the colors in it.  For tonight, I'm gonna skip that blend, but tomorrow, it's off to Hobby Lobby to pick it up.  And a couple of other skeins I need, if I have the moola.  We'll see what I have when I look in my wallet tomorrow.  I can't remember if I spent all my dollars or not.  I know I have some change though, enough to get the one skein I need if I don't have enough for the rest.  I HATE the end of the month.  I'm always so broke!!
  Hope you're all doing well, and sleeping like babes!!

lol - You have an addiction for sure, if you're scrounging for change to get stash. Maybe you could sit with a cup outside Hobby Lobby with a sign that says "out of thread". YD does look good with her bling on, I hope she learns to enjoy it.

OMG, Claudette, that is soooooooo funny!!!! I KNOW I am addicted already. I freely admit it, lol. You just gave me the best mental picture though, lol. Thanks for that, really. I really needed a giggle!! YD says thanks for the compliment. She's used to it, now that she can't pull it off. (She adjusts easily, lol.)

Yes Dear looks so sweet in her cat charm. She almost has that look that says now just look at me don't I look puuuuuurty!!! Lol!

Kaisievic said...

So cute, Julie. Yes Dear looks "charming". We put a collar on Furio but he kept wriggling his way out of it, so we gave up.

Margaret said...

Love Yes Dear's new charm! Very nice! Yes, I can definitely see Mia doing the same thing if i tried putting a new charm on her collar. lol! She looks very pretty with it on though.

That is funny.. all of our older cats frequently get out of their collars..my parents keep a stash of the break away's.. and right now our kitten..malbone is running free cause our only female cat Ginger gave him ring worms..so poor thing gets goop in his eyes, cotton in his ears and dumped into a bucket of dip. his first was last mon and tomorrow is his second and ginger's first....

LOL dad don't like stealth kitties as we call them without their belled collars...they tend to sneak up on him and scare him almost into a heart attack..it's very amusing.

But right now Rufus and Mally are stealth..i took off Rufus's collar cause his neck get's itchy from it.. of course mom told dad he took it off..lol

Gizzimomo said...

Awwww, she looks so pretty and yes we do have several cats..... one of which looks very like Yes Dear! I'm glad it got there ok and that you managed to persuade Yes Dear to wear it as it looks fab!

Awww, Yes Dear looks beautiful! I am glad she adjusted well to the charm, it looks great on her :)

I am totally addicted as well, I too scour for change for floss, lol. Sometimes I even call DH at work and see if he will pick me up some floss on his way home from work (he works a minute away from JoAnn's). I just wish I could find more change...LOL!!! I hope you can get the floss you need! If you have troubles, let me know and I can pop some in the mail for you. :)

Yes Dear looks stunning with the new charm! I have 3 cats, but only the female wears a collar with a bell. I tried collars on the black one, but he gets out of them and loses them every time. I haven't tried one on the third cat yet.

Maybe you could recycle some cans or bottles to get enough stash $$$!

Siobhan said...

Yes Dear looks very dashing with the new charm!

Congrats on getting to 100 followers--I see that number has seriously jumped! You go girl!

Nancy said...

Yes Dear looks beautiful in her new bling and from the look on her face she thinks so too!

Dani - tkdchick said...

LOL I don't think my cats would allow me to bling them up without getting my eyes scratched out!

Vicky L said...

Yes Dear looks good with her collar. I hate the end of the month too. I am always broke in the last week.

mdgtjulie said...

LOL, Sally, I was sitting in my chair stitching last night and telling her she was now even prettier. And she was giving me her ho hum look, lol. LOL, Kaye. I used a cheap collar on her at first, as I knew she would tear it up. And boy, did she. She tried everything to get it off, lol. Finally, she gave in. So I put her blingy collar on her then. It has little glass bits posing as crystals. Thanks Margaret. I'm always telling her how pretty she is, so she thinks she's gorgeous!! Luckily for me, YD hasn't figured out how to get out of hers. Awww, YD's collar doesn't have a bell. Yet... Thanks Thea. I figured you probably did. She's fine with it now, so it's all good!! Awww, thanks Rachel. I'm good. I have more change than I thought. Although I have to wait till tomorrow. Hobby Lobby is closed on Sunday, which is fine as I work on Jesus on Sunday. I'll go in on Monday and get what I need. I recycle everything I can. We have a big garbage can for recyclables. But it's okay, I have lots of change, more than I thought I did!! Thanks Siobhan. Lots of people came out of the woodwork to post on my giveaway post, lol. I love the way it looks on her. She always thinks she looks beautiful. She's so spoiled, lol. Thanks Nancy!! LOL, Dani, I didn't know if YD would or not. Luckily I escaped unscathed, lol. Thanks Vicky. It's worse than usual this month. I bought four charts because HAED had two sales, and I didn't realize how much I'd spent until it was too late. Darned impulse buys!!

Tama said...

She looks so pretty! Purple is her color, lol!
I may need to look into getting one of those for Grizabella, if I can ever find a collar that will stay on her tiny neck.

mdgtjulie said...

Thanks Tama. She's gotten used to it now, so it's no big deal. I hope you can find a collar. Is she a kitten or just small?

♥ Nia said...

"Why do you do this to me?" LOL :D
I feel your pain.. I hate the end of the month too =/ Reminds me that there's a new month starting and new bills to pay :p hehehehe

mdgtjulie said...

Yes, exactly. And I hardly ever do anything to her? She looked soooooooo put upon, and she's spoiled rotten. Yeah, there is that too. I hate bills, lol. All that money that could go for stash!

Pumpkin said...

YD is just charming in her new bling :o)

mdgtjulie said...

Thanks Pumpkin. I love it too!
