Why do Summer romances fade? Maybe because the conversation was one sided... or maybe one partner prefers pineapple shaved ice over coconut flavor. One thing is for sure, the relationship was never the same after a sporty, beach volleyball entered the picture. C'est la vie!
When a hermit crab chooses a new shell, is it similar to taking kids shoe shopping? Does the little critter compare style, color, fit, and comfort? I would surely hope so. Nothing worse than being seen in an out of season conch shell on Venice Beach... the fashion horror!
Awhile back, a DIY cat bed caught my eye on Pinterest. It took some looking to find the perfect vintage suitcase to dismantle. The legs were a great find which I refinished a light walnut to better match a mishmash of wood in the living room. The plush bedding is a quilted pillowcase sham over a standard pillow... so soft and comfy. A feather toy, vintage luggage tag, original suitcase keys, and a monogrammed "G" added a bit of personality. Gizmo seemed to know right away that the special project was for him. He now naps there often and keeps his cuddle toy there always! Someone is definitely spoiled and he is more than fine with that fact.
