Look it's a Rainbow brite eskimo girl!!!

My favorite thing about the cold might just be this hat.  I threw this on this morning as I ran out to get some Starbucks.  I love it and people always mistake it for a wig.

There will be no frock for me today (just this hat and some cozy sweats) I have a crazy weekend ahead so I'm only working a half day and then I plan on getting crafty by the fire with Peetee and the kitties.

Sometimes when you have a dog and two cats things can get a little crazy.  They are either all sleeping, eating or chasing each other around.  When I found this quirky book written in 1945 called The Gingham Dog and Calico Cat I fell in love with the story and illustrations.  Check it out!

Maybe the universe didn't let me become a parent because I would have read books like this to my kids,  who knows.  It's cute and a bit disturbing, kinda like me :)

Have a great weekend everyone and a very Happy Veteran's day to all the vets out there!

I had that book as a child, I loved macabre scary stuff, too. I love those illustrations, the cat looks such a snooty madam.
That hat is freaking fabulous, it does look like a crazy mullet wig at first, I bet you get loads more attention in it than normal!
Have a rocking weekend, babe!
catch up soon, I hope.
Love You! xxx

That HAT, Krista! It's the faux fur version of your hair colours, how incredible!
I love the illustrations in the book. My kids actually quite like freaky/disturbing things, and goodness knows our 4 cats, and the 3 kids, do enough rough'n'tumble scrapping!
Enjoy your weekend, love! xxxxxxxxx

What a great loca wig.. I mean hat.
only you and your bright colors can pull this off.
that is the most adorable creepy,crawly book. I love scary stories. aww your pets are like your childres. I miss my family pets back in California. We have all kinds of birds and dogs except for cat.
besotes with wigs


That hat was MADE for you! I love it.

I'm another fan of the creepy/macabre side of life - stems from my mum. On Sunday evenings there used to be a horror story on the radio, my mother used to let me listen to it with her from a very young age. My friends couln't wait to get to school on Monday to nhear me re-tell the story.
I hope your weekend has got off to a good start and you enjoy the rest - I'm lots better, so hope to catch-up properly with people next week.
