...I ADORE getting mail, bill-less mail that is. I don't get mail that I love very often, besides the odd internet purchase. But in the last month I have gotten two wonderful packages from afar, one from Reno,Nevada and one from Australia. I actually won a couple giveaways!!! I was so pumped as I never win anything, ever...so it was to my delight that I had a little bit of luck pointing in my direction.


...I'll start with the package I got first. It was from the lovely, can't speak highly enough Stuff blog. I won a Catnip pillow giveaway for my kitty dollfaces.. so I decided to put an order in at Stacey's AWESOME Etsy Shop since it was coming from that far away and I'd been meaning to order from her for so long. Her kitty toys are all handmade and insanely well done, and my kitties FREAKED for it all!. Plus they are actually very cool looking, they pick the coolest fabrics as opposed to the cheese you buy at major pet department stores. She even put up a little slide show of my kitties when they first opened up the gifts,here...too cute. She also has a heart of GOLD and is all about helping support shelters with the money she brings in from sales. If you have a cat, Check her out!!! Your cat(s) will love you for it.

















...My last but certainly not least Giveaway Win, was from the oh so inspiring blog Artdecadence. She is absolutely amazing and also has a wicked cool Etsy Shop. I won a really cute, sassy set of vintage inspired napkins. As you can see below...they are almost too pretty to use though...eeeps. She also from the sweetness of her heart sent me a few other bonuses, One being like the Most Hilarious Book ever called "Pussy Pie hits town"...Thank You, Thank You...this fits in so well with my odd Cat Book collection.


















...this book slays me with giggles.



...these are the cute napkins I received which say "I need to believe in something. I believe I'll have another Drink.", with the funny "Pussy Pie" book, as well as one of the "Binky Mats" from Stuff. (fur covered a la Turtles)

...So there you have it...I just had to get that out of my system and share the love to these awesome ladies. I love the bloggy community, I've met the nicest people in the World on here, I swear. Once I get my feet off the ground,job or career wise I will most definitely have a giveaway...can't wait!

Congrats on winning the giveaways, such cool stuff! Love the mailbox kitties :)

Yay, a turquoise table project! You asked for some sanding tips for your table? If it has curves of any sort (say on the legs), best to hand-sand with 80 grit (coarse), then 120 grit (medium), then 220 (fine grit). You can skip the 220 if you're not worried about a super-smooth finish and want to maintain more of the "old" character. For the table's top, if you can afford to pick up a hand-sander, I highly recommend it. The results will be much smoother than hand-sanding and it's not as back-breaking. You don't have to buy an orbital, just something like a Black & Decker Mouse will work. The same 80, then 120, then 220 process for the smoothest finish. I think the Mouse run about $20-25, and you can use that baby for years to come. After you sand, just thoroughly remove all dust, I recommend priming, then paint. Good luck girlie, I can't wait to see your finished table. You must post pics!

Hey girl...pleased you liked your package...wasn't sure about the book...I thought it was funny...so happy you did as well! Pity you weren't over this side of the world so that we could break open those napkins with a champers!

Hooray! Congrats to you :)
Yep, bill-less mail ROCKS! I'd also be stoked to find one of those adorable kitties in my mailbox! Or..actually on second thoughts, my mailbox is kinda small and tubular...It'd probably be kinda horrifying to find a cat squished into it O.o.... maybe a mini kitty.

The Curious Cat said...

It is true -there are some wonderful people out there on the blogosphere aren't there? Love the gifts - getting gift mail is so much fun! :) Loving the cats today too - where do you find such funny photos?! I'd love a little paw to poke through the mail box and grab the mail off you! :) xxx

The Curious Cat said...

oh jesus - that link before...does the job! xxx

Sam said...

Look at that pussy cat go with the cat nip pillow!! Hmmm...may have to get me one for my Dad's cat! (Adore his enormous white whiskers by the way!)

Chrisy is the best!! How cool you got Pussy Pie too!!! I vaguely remember seeing that cartoon out and about - it looks very silly!

Lastly , what is it with cats and small spaces? Look at those fluffy folk jammed into letter boxes!! Every cat I've ever owned (and I've had quite a few) has made a bee line towards anything remotely box like and small! A mystery!!

Pesky Cat Designs said...

Looks like you scored some winners! BTW, love all your mailbox kitty pics especially the first. I'll definitely have to check out Stacey's Etsy shop for my little Anni. Looks like your kitties loved their mailbox delights as well!

Gabbi said...

Lovely prize!! Chrisy is amazing...♥ I love the napkins, like you I probably couldn't bring myself to use them. Also, the cat in mailbox photos are hilarious, it's probably George's dream to do that. He has the weirdest fascination with the mail man, he's completely afraid of strangers but for some reason he throws himself against the screen door whenever the mailman walks on the porch to deliver the mail? I don't know if wants to kill'em or kiss'em? :)
