The Three Little Kittens

And sometimes four. ☺ I bought 2 vintage baby blankets and a matching pillow the last time I went to the antique mall. They are felted and embroidered.

I gasped when I saw them and knew I had to have them! I tried reasoning with myself but it did no good! If something makes me gasp and then clasp my hand,s AND I can afford it, I think I should buy it- don't you? I have no idea where I will put them but they make me feel happy when I look at them and that's good enough for me!

HOUSE NEWS: We made our offer on our little cottage and the owners are considering it! Yippee! Our lenders are requiring a ridiculously massive amount of fix ups so the owners are having to call in contractors to see if they can afford to do them. This sounds much more hopeful to us than a flat out NO! so I am excited about that but I'm not excited about more WAITING to know for sure! My sons are contractors and I know what it takes to call in painters, electricians, etc. and then put together a bid. Our realtor said we might know something by Monday or Tuesday but I won't hold my breath.

Thank you all for your well wishes, prayers and encouragement. If we buy this house, I'm chaining myself to the foundation and NO ONE will ever move me again! Ha-ha!

The fun thing about baby blankets is that they are "small" so they don't take up a lot of room...which means the more the merrier of course! =D

Absolutely, if something makes you gasp, you should have it!
It's so frustrating how long these house sales can drag on. I remember just sitting there in a daze, waiting to hear if the house was going to be ours. I hope you hear VERY soon!

Holly, The photograph of your sons still has me smiling ear to ear. They are all so tall and so skinny. Your genes I can see! I have never heard of a bank insisting on repairs before you purchase a house. Boy, I wish I had that good fortune in the many fixer uppers I have lived in! Those flower beds are meant to be yours. It's only a matter of time! Have a lovely weekend. Your kittens in the pussy willows is so charming. E

Hi Holly!

I think it is down right charming that you have all these men in your life and you can be the queen of cutie pie cottage with no competition!

I am really excited about your house and I pray that this works out. It seems like the perfect little dream come true for you and more than anything I am excited at the thought that you can "stay put".

That is my quest in life too, to seek and find and then stay put!

The kitty goods are adorable!!!

Thoroughly Modern Me said...

What a great find-the kitty blankets are adorable. I gasped when I saw them-in person I would have shrieked and grabbed them up right away. You were right to buy them!

Ric Rac and Polka Dots said...

Oh Holly, I SO hope your offer is accepted. Maybe you can sweeten the deal and offer to help with a few things, if that is allowed. Whatever it takes is how I would be thinking about it. I'd get my boys over there to do a few of the smaller things if it was ok with all parties involved. I'm still crossing my fingers.
Love the little kitten items you found, very sweet. Makes me think I should make something like that for Ellianna.
NO WAY are either of us old enough to have four grandchildren. Or any for that matter!!! :) Thanks for visiting and leaving the very nice comment.
Hugs,
Julie aka Grandma Julie
