That's one fried pussy cat!

If you haven't noticed I am quoting from Christmas movies for my post titles. I am not sure why, I just felt like it!

Ok, this piece is really quite amazing. I bought it in the fall and once again felt like I needed to wait for inspiration to finish it. So I waited and then suddenly last week I whipped out my trusty Modge Podge and let it work its magic. I had all these scrap repo- vinatge pictures, I just started pasting them on immediately fell in love with it! I showed it to Meliss, who also fell in love with it. She said she wanted it. I fully intended to sell it until Jen came in the picture. Ah, Jen. What can I say about Jen except that she should be the master shopper. Santa needs to hire her for consulting if not Santa, maybe husbands. Jen had my name for our annual book club gift exchange. Jen gave me a little bit o heaven in a box all wrapped up in the coolest scarf I have ever seen. The box was adorned with the most amazing ornament that I am turning into a necklace. Inside she gave me these scissors you can see in the picture, 2 rolls of bakery twine on little wooden spools one red the other green. [I just wanted to cry I loved them so much] A custom made stamp made just for Mamie's by Three Designing Women and a sweet little hankie from Anthropology. It was so neat to receive something so carefully thought out. I was very very touched. So, what does that have to do with the box you say? Well those scissors look really cute in it, so does the twine. I placed all sorts of other goodies in it for wrapping, tags, tinsel and such. I had to keep it. I told Meliss the news. She said "ok, just don't sell it to anyone else."


Merry Christmas! Keep checking back, I am working on New Years and Valentines. Plus my mom has made some SUPER cute bibs. With chennile backing and the sweetest vintage fabric with a magnet for a latch! I can't wait!

*******I have an extra treat for you if you can guess what Christmas movie this title comes from! Post it in the comment section.
