Yes, I swore that Fiona & Twig, both the blog and the shop, would never ever feature any cutesy cat tchotchkes or cat-themed anything (even though my biz/blog is named after two cats).
I have a dangerously low threshold for cutesy.
But I've been sitting on these photos for nigh on a month now, determined that someway, somehow, I was going to post pics of my four-legged daughter Winnie in her little antique kitty bed. And of course, in so doing, not jeopardizing my blog cred as a cynical, sardonic voice railing against the cutesy.
Blame it on the paint fumes, or all the recent late nights cleaning and pricing and plotting and planning my booth opening next weekend....when fatigue sets in, my brain shuts down. Less synapses firing = less verbosity. So win-win!
You don't have to muddle through another rambling excursion into my pysche, PLUS you get to ooooh and awwww over precocious kitty pics.
Wearer of many hats!
