We're moving!

In the words of the great Phoebe, Let's live in an apartment that we both live in! It's with giddy pleasure that I announce that after much searching, Mitch and I have purchased a condo — okay, Mitch has purchased a condo and promises to let me live there. Nice, right! Moving to the ever blossoming Lower Lonsdale region of North Vancouver; our sweet suite is wonderfully south-facing, has great big windows, and an open kitchen. After much searching, bidding, and some light renovating; the place should be move-in ready by the weekend! Eek, homeowners? I mean, whoo, homeowners! Also, no more painting, please.

Mickey's purrfect basket

This image is in response to yesterday's blog post on one of my favourite feel-good websites, My Himalayan Cat Goma. Goma looks like Gus, but he's even fluffier!! Yesterday's post was titled, Cat in a basket—How to Choose a puurfect basket for your cat. Well, Gus isn't really one to surrender to the confines of a basket. Mickey, on the other hand, can usually be found curled up in this one anytime between the hours of 7pm and 2am, at which point he usually decides it's time jump on my face and eat my hair. What a guy.



Be sure to check out Goma and Sachie (his owner)'s blog, My Himayalan Cat Goma. It'll make you smile, and you'll have it bookmarked in regular blog-rotation in no time!

So lovely

It was love at first sight when I saw a picture of this beautifully eclectic oven mitt in the October issue of House & Home magazine. After making a trip to Vancouver's new(ish) Anthropologie store, I was so disappointed when I couldn't find this set there. But wow, does that store have some incredible clothing and unique kitchenware!


Dotty Match Pot Holders

I love love love all the turquoise and yellow patterns!

Simon says...

Simon says: Act just like Jasmine's cat. From the first film, Cat Man Do, Simon's Cat has reminded me of the heartwarming joys and frustrations of living with Mickey, my cute and cuddly yet ever so needy fluff ball of a cat.



I love this film because it makes think back to all the all-nighters I pulled when I went back to school, and how Mickey would curl up beside me as I worked away until the early sunrise (at which point he would run like lightning to the kitchen to be fed). But like clockwork, at about 2am and 4am, he'd wake up full of energy, wanting to play and sit...everywhere...just like Simon's Cat.

To see more of English animator, Simon Tofield's hilarious cat films, visit his website or YouTube channel. You wont regret it!
