Saturday Favorites



I do love living in an old house. Blogger is not letting me upload any other pictures, so here is one of the sides of the house painted this summer by yours truly.



I love gardening. These 2 pots thrived beautifully this summer! I felt like a success.




I love cats! Here is Mo, aka Bubba as a one pound kitten. Note the mohawk. He is now a big thick cat that looks like a young tough thug. We love him!

Join Laurie for Saturday Favorites. There's a whole lot going on!

Have a wonderful weekend,
Carol

I love yellow houses, yours is very pretty. What a sweet kittie, I would have one if i wasn't so allergic to them.
Hugs, Cindy

Well there! You showed Blogger that you could find a way around the snafu. I wish that Blogger worked as well as we all expect it to. What a cutie pie Mo was and you'll have to show us an updated photo when things are working, which will be soon, I hope.

Carol, that was a lot of house painting for you to do! I'm impressed! When I saw the thumbnail photo of the kitty on my blog, I started smiling. Couldn't wait to get over here and see the photo. Mo sure looks like a kitty who needed some lovin', and I bet he's gotten that at your house! Thank you for linking to Favorite Things. I am so thankful that you are such a regular for my Favorite Things weekly event. I love coming to see what you've been up to. I hope your Thanksgiving is wonderful! laurie

Hi Carol...

Ohh...I love your yellow house! Girl, I can't believe that you took on all that painting yourself...BRAVO!!! Your potted flowers are sooo pretty! I did a bit of gardening this summer as well but kept it all to flower pots! Now...I just have to tell you that your little kitty just made me smile! What a face he is making...too cute! Thank you for sharing a few of your favorite things with us today!!!

I also wanted to thank you for coming by and taking a peek at my autumn candlelight dinner! I sooo enjoyed your visit and sweet note! Thank you sooo much for the warm well wishes, my friend!!!

Warmest Thanksgiving wishes...

I love yellow, its looks like continual sunshine and laughter...God shining and smiling on you. I cannot imagine climbing a ladder and painting all of that, what a job!! and such satisfaction, well done!!
Love your kitty also, sweet little boy.
We are restoring an old Queenslander. It is weatherboard also, different to yours and yet, the older ones have such personality don't they.....
Ours is built up high for ventilation from the tropical summer heat. I have a small picture of it on my side bar. It is waiting for a veranda on the front and top side and a car port on the bottom right side. Underneath is the basement.Hugs CML
