Happy Caturday! {CoHost} - Cute Cats Everywhere

Kitty sunset
Art print available here.

Hey there people and Happy Caturday to you! I hope you are well, wherever in the world you may be!

As always, I am linking up my grateful list with Octavia and Vicky. My Caturday posts always follow the same formula. I'll talk about everything I'm grateful for then point out some fantastic kitty-related goodies. Grateful + Cats = Catful. Totally logical. Go with me on this :)

Grab a button and link up below! If you'd like a different sized button click here.

Here's what I am saying thanks for this week

134.  I am very grateful that I have Sunday off from my day job. 

135.  I am also grateful to have a day job with which I am able to support my family.

Here's my feline goodness for this week

This week I wanted to feature Simon's Cat. Have you ever seen any of his cartoons and videos? You really should - they're cute and funny at the same time. Here are some of my faves from the Simon's Cat website. Enjoy!

Cat vs toys
Cat vs toys - why is it they never want to play with the toys you buy or make? Why do they always want to play with something else entirely? Like a pen or whatever they're not allowed.

Cats as tigers
Cats as tigers - they are tigers really. I didn't realise there was an international Tiger day but I bet my cats did. Kitty sixth sense or something.

A cat for every occasion
A cat for every occasion - even for Valentines!

A kitty food scrum
A kitty food scrum - chaos, kitty fashion.

Before you link up your grateful and feline goodness below - I'd love if you would tweet about our hop. I love that people come along each week and link up here and I really want to invite more and more people to join in. The more linkers we have, the more goodies being shared around the blogosphere. Just click on the pick below to spread the Twittery goodness.

Tweet This Hop

Now it's your turn - link up all things feline or grateful below. I can't wait to see what you'll link up this week :) Don't have a blog but want to join in? Tag your pics on Instagram with the hashtag #caturday to get involved!

Have a great day people!

Wednesday Words of Wisdom

Good Morning, I am supporting another wonderful but detailed project for my day job and have been burning the midnight oils.  So today's post will be short and sweet.  My friend re-shared a great quote this morning on FB so I thought I would pass on these Words of Wisdom.  I hope everyone has a blessed Wednesday (and Saturday hurries up and gets here LOL.)

"Raised by Antique Dealers, I come by my love of all things old easily. I am passionate about illustrations, Victorian prints, and ephemera. ETSY is allowing me to sell what I love, and making it easy. I am looking forward to providing you truly creative folk with imagery, and provide an outlet for those who are looking for inexpensive artwork. Let's have fun together!" ~Reenie Kietzman
LaDonna LeRose
 "I am on staff at an HIV/AIDS Clinic. My passions are animal rescue (esp. Italian Greyhounds), HIV/AIDS research to find a cure, and LGBT rights. I have 3 daughters, 2 dogs, 2 cats and 1 husband.

My les choses necessaires include my Italian Greyhounds; my cats; antique books; flow blue china; religious jewelry, icons and medals; old pictures, and vintage designer handbags.

This shop has given me a great outlet for my number one needful thing, shopping! It's fun to share my expeditions with you!

Thanks for stopping by" ~LeDonna LeRose

Memory Hotel
Facia's Mom
"We live in the North Country, the Adirondacks of upstate New York. The snow falls steadily from late November sometimes until Easter. The mountains of Vermont are visible from our town and are reflected in the lake. We call our 1880s Victorian "Memory Hotel", so many families have lived here before us, so many memories remain. We invite you to come and stay for awhile, take something away with you... Share the memories......." ~Facia's Mom

Delusions of Grandeur Shoppe
Ruth Hultz
 "Always interested in collections, history, antiques and especially in re purposing-- even as a child--I finally have time to do it to my heart's content. Life is Good and it is fun making it good for others." ~Ruth Hultz

********************************************************************************** We have expanded our Pacific Postcards Team past the confines of Etsy. You can now join in the fun even if you don't have an Etsy account by joining the Pacific Postcards Team on G+ . Another great way to share our passion for postcards. I have not built a button for this yet so here is the link to our new community. If you know anyone that is in love with postcards and ephemera please pass this link onto them. Go to

The only difference in the memberships is that the latter will be included in shop
interviews, BNRs and postcard related activities. We also plan on having activities for
the general memberships. Hope to see you there soon.
Please remember that we have our very own Postcard Forum for any questions about specific postcards, collecting, creating, basically anything and everything about postcards. Finally found a rare card for your collection? Use the forum to show off that new found treasure.
