The reason I haven't had time to blog lately is because I've been pulling an auction together. Several Catster Moms who are also friends on Facebook have been donating items for an auction that will benefit a Catster family in England who is going through a really tough time.

Be sure to check out this blog to see the 97 items that have been donated. You can bid on any item by clicking in the comment section of the item. If you don't have a Google account, you can still bid by selecting Anonymous, but then be sure to leave your name and email contact info.

There are many beautiful jewelry items, some fun kid items, and of course, lots of cat items! Start your holiday shopping now, and help out a needy family at the same time!

Thanks for looking and bidding . . . . .

Cute Little Bench!

I have inherited from different family members several chairs and benches that have needlepoint cushions. After awhile, the needlepoint gets shabby looking, so I decided it was time for a change! Here is Calvin from a couple of years ago on a little bench I got from my aunt.

You wouldn't believe the nasty material they would use to stuff the cushion - some of it is like straw and then there is the old cotton fiberfil - nothing but sinus problems! So, off with the old - very easy to do - remove a few screws, take off some staples and get rid of the stuffing!

Then a new cushion was added with a layer of quilt batting on top for extra softness. I love this cute cat fabric, and it only took about 10 minutes to put it all together!

Now, it's ready for a cat - can't wait to see who is the first to use it!

Another Round of Dancing!

Dancing with the Stars starts tonight. Look who I drew in the Red Hots pool!

I don't stand a chance, however we have a few extra picks, so if she gets sent packing early, I might still be in the running!

Better Than Krispy Kreme!

Newman, here! I took over the MRS. blog today to tell you about the pawsome prize I won over at Life is Art . . . . Art is Life! Emmitt is one of my doggie pals, and his Mom crochets food and sweaters and stuff like that.

I won a doughnut. Emmitt is giving away a doughnut every week in September. Since I was the first one to win, I got to pick which doughnut I wanted!

Here I am bragging to all my siblings that I got a doughnut and they didn't!

The doughnut didn't smell like chocolate . . . . it sort of smelled like Emmitt!

It didn't take long for me to try to stick my face in the doughnut hole!

I love my doughnut, Emmitt! And I sure was happy to get it today because two years ago today is when I got rescued. I was a teeny, tiny, little boy who ran across the road at the right time.

Don't they always say location, location, location . . . . . . and you gotta be at the right place at the right time? I found the purrfect home, and who knew I would one day get a doughnut from a dog!

Thanks, Emmitt!

Successful Yard Sale!

Well, the yard sale is history! The weather was perfect, the turnout was good, and the end result was over $700 profit! And there was a bonus - a Red Hot friend donated two bikes with the proceeds going toward my Komen walk this November. Both the bikes sold, and also a totebag for a total of $85 going to a great cause!

We spent all day yesterday sorting through the leftovers - three trips to Goodwill and the rest boxed up and saved for the next time I have energy to do it again!
