The great finds just keep coming! Oh, and a little Monday cuteness.

So I know I shouldn't be shopping now but I do need a bookcase and decided to go on Craigslist. I like Craigslist because many times I find what I'm looking for with a little more style than if I bought it at, say, Target and for less! What I should not have done was type in two words "shabby chic". Needless to say I didn't find my bookcase but I did find this! I will be picking it up Wednesday. You will NEVER guess how much I got it for. $25.00! I will have to sand and repaint it because it has a few places that have chipped paint but that won't be too hard and it will be a fun project. I will be repainting a lot these days. HA! It's all well worth it. I'm thinking I will put it in my bathroom and it will hold some hand towels. :)

Okay, for a little cuteness this evening. Quincy sleeps like a baby. When he sleeps next to me he has to have his head on the pillow and then make himself purposely look so cute that I have to bury my face in that fur of his! Quincy is a Selkirk Rex and has fur like a "lamb", curly and thick. If you've never heard of a Selkirk Rex you should do a Google search and checkout the images. These cats are like teddy bears! :)




Hope everyone has a good week!

Your little cupboard is quite a find. And that little Quincy, what can I say, he is adorably cute and fluffy and I just want to softly lay my head on his belly and hear him purr.

You have the cutest blog! I just happened to click on your link from another blog. I love all the old pin up girls and the music. Your kitties are really adorable but would, I fear, cause me to get all sniffly and itchy. Nice to be able to appreciate their cuteness through pictures. I'm also a fan of Victoria magazine, several of your favorite films and I too have a binder of articles and clippings!
