Folksy Friday: Meow!

OmG... A week passed, and I hardly noticed it.
Well, there was a birthday to be celebrated- The Man turned 37. Look at him, wrinkles and all:

Your friendly neighbourhood bum. Isn't he adorable? The hat was an impulse buy, £10 from Scope. Gotta love it! Love it so much, I had to... improve its ownership:

Yeah, that's band aid round my thumb. Nearly chopped the bugger off trying to open The Mans new pool cue wrapping plastic thingy! (leave it to me, darling, don't cut yourself. I know what I'm doing. Err.)

Crafting- wise, I have been kinda lazy... up until today.
I will leave the details for a soon- to- come post, but I shall give you a teaser:
C'mon, who knows what this is?

Now, let us proceed to this weeks Folksy Friday.

As some of you might know, we share our life, house and everything else with four cats. Shannon, Erin, Hope and Bob. Penny in our hearts.
For me, life wouldn't be complete without them furry buggers shedding hair all over the place, stealing items, puking up so you step into the mess first thing in the morning, gnawing away at everything remotely string- like and taking up so much space in bed that you'd rather sleep in the garage if you had one.
So, this week I will dedicate FF to all things CAT. Because they have taken over my life anyway.

Clicking the pictures will take you straight to the shops- I recommend you check them out, because Xmas is coming up, and there's (almost) nothing better than hand- made gifts.#



This one for charity:

I could go on and on.
Hope you found something for that special cat person in your life. Always remember:

"Of all God's creatures, there is only one that cannot be made slave of the lash. That one is the cat. If man could be crossed with the cat it would improve the man, but it would deteriorate the cat." - Mark Twain


  1. Hi, Steff, you are too cute in that hat! But so does The Man. You'll have to fight for it. I have no clue what that towery thing is - dying of curiosity - you must put me out of my misery soon. The cats are all fab, my favorite pic is the coin purses.

  2. Your object is a Knitting Dolly, I just bought one for my 6 yr old grand daughter.

    Love the hat too

  3. Puuuurfect! Sorry couldn't resist.

    Great picks, the card with the cat in the box is spot on! xx

  4. YAY for Pauline!
    I loved that thing as a kid, and I just had to have it.

  5. Awww! Cute kitty cats.

    I have that exact French knitting tool too!

  6. So many kittehs...and I too am crushing on the hat!
