Chair Kitties

Our new lanai chairs are now Ipo's favorite place to be. Allie still likes her mommy's reading/beading chair the best.  How can she breathe like this?  :D

A Rant

Normally, I don't use my blog here for anything but funny stories, cute kitty pix and to show you the stuff I'm making.  But today I am going to rant and hopefully, warn you guys not to buy this product.

The product is the Schticky brand roller thing to pick up pet hair.  We bought one from Amazon and it worked great for 3 entire days.  Then it was no longer sticky and therefore, useless.

I emailed the Schticky people and they said basically, oh, we can't help you, you need to call.  So, I called.  I got this guy with a heavy accent who informed me that no, Schticky does NOT stand behind their product unless you buy it from them and then they want another 8 bucks in postage.  I asked the guy, you do NOT stand behind your product simply because I bought it from  He said, yes, that's right.  I said thanks and hung up and went to Amazon who kindly sent me a mail back label and will refund our money.

So, friends, please do NOT buy a Schticky product.  It's a piece of crap.  My friend bought one, too, and had the exact same problem.  Her's lasted 3 days, also.  I say boycott, at all costs, this lousy product and please tell all your friends not to waste their money.
Ok, no more rant.  :)

Ear Cuffs

One of my wire magazines had the coolest directions on how to make ear cuffs.  I think they are fun so I made some.  :D  I do believe I will make many colors.  What fun!

A New Table and a Dancing Lady

The other day we decided we needed a new lanai table.  We took our old one and left it at the Disappearing Shelf.  No matter what we put out there, it disappears in a couple hours.  Sure enough, the table was gone in a couple hours.  Goody.  Now someone has our happy green table on their lanai.

So, we went to Pier 1 and lo and behold there was the cutest sunflower table.  So we bought it and 2 matching chairs and toted them home.  What a disaster. The nuts were all a hair too small to fit on the bolts and the nuts to cap off the bolts were way too short and the bolts were too long.  So today we took it back.    Tempting fate, we merely exchanged it for a new one.

I fortified myself with lunch then decided to put it together.  Hooray!  It all fit and we have a new table and chairs.  Ipo decided to check it out and she approves.  Isn't it cool that our bright yellow cushions fit the new chairs perfectly?:D

Then I got out my wire and made this fun little dancing elf.

Cool Mint

Don'tcha just want a mint julep and a hand fan?  Maybe a parasol? :D  I finished this last night and love it!  Usually I'm not a pastel kind of girl but this one... hmmm, maybe it's the mint julep I like so much.  :D

The Kitties and A Rainbow

Look at the bookends.  Aren't they cute?  I don't know what got into Ipo acting like a normal cat.  :D
It was a rainy day yesterday so B decided to take some pictures from our window.  The rainbow is looking across the street and the blue is a bit of our pool.  Look at all those delicious smelling plumerias!  So pretty!
