I am currently reading. I.M. : A Memoir by Isaac Mizrahi. As most of you know he is a designer, talk show host and much more. I am enjoying reading about his childhood and how he was always interested in fashion and design. Being gay in his Jewish neighborhood made things difficult for him in addition to being overweight. I am glad he was able to get through that and become successful.
It was a funny coincidence, I just got some sheets at TJ Maxx and they happen to be designed by him. I had to have these sheets- the kitties look like Angel Phoebe in her polka-dotted bikini.

Hi everyone! Poor Penny is getting bumped from her tips today so we could show you what we won from Sweet Purrfections. We won this at the end of March and it was delivered right away. I left it in the box for my hubby to put together, but he has been busy with outdoor tasks. Then I remembered that I didn’t need him to assemble this- no tools are even needed.
*Disclosure-I won a Catit Vesper Cottage. I am not required to do a review. All opinions are my own.
All I need is my Sammy.
I got this mom
It was idiot proof! You just slide the pieces together like a fun puzzle. It comes in oak and white. I chose white because I have a white bookcase and a shelf in the bedroom which is where this piece will be located.
Joanie and Sammy were eager to test it out when it was on the bed. As you can see, it has 2 levels, and came with a cushion for each level. It is very sturdy and I like the little cat head carved in the top.
Once I set it on the floor, they lost interest, but I am sure they will go back to it. Thank you Sweet Purrfections and Catit for this amazing prize.
I have been reading Dani Shapiro’s memoirs. She has written 5 memoirs highlighting different aspects of her life. She has also written several novels. I started with Devotion:A Memoir and was immediately pulled into her life. After that I read her latest memoir , Inheritance: A Memoir of Genealogy, Paternity and Love. She writes about accidentally discovering a family secret.
I have also read Slow Motion, a memoir of her life as a young adult and how a tragic accident affected her. And I just finished Hourglass: Time, Memory, Marriage. I only have one memoir left to read. She teaches memoir workshops so someday I hope to attend one.
Hi everyone. Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers. Some of us have 4-legged children, some have 2-legged too- I wish you all a wonderful day. And I want to wish my special Mom ( AKA Grammie) a Happy Mother’s Day too!
Brody was the only one willing to take a selfie. He is most happy to have a mother.
We are also joining Cactus Catz’ Sabi Saturday. A fun hop where you show something vintage/antique, recycled and repurposed. Last week, I showed you the war ration book my great-aunt left me. This cookbook was also with the ration book.
For our art today, I am showing you the masterpieces The Great One made for Mother’s Day gifts.
She made 8 coasters. One for her mom, one for me, one for my mom and then she has a Grandma, Nana and Mimi too.I also helped her make a glitter bath scrub for her mom and she decided to keep one for herself 🙂
We will join Sabi Saturday on Sunday.
