Valentine Kittens


When my father was "courting" my mother, he gave her figurines, mostly cats. I thought it was incredibly romantic. Sigh.

As a young girl, I loved the porcelain Siamese kitten figurines. 

They were soft and sweet, with big blue eyes. 

And maybe they were even... real. 









Happy Valentine's Day dear friends!

  5. Courting? What's that? Hello DATING is barely in my vocabulary!
    It was nice to meet you in person! Now I know the face behind the blog (and book of course!).

  7. Ann, this is Jenny, Lucy and Sam's mom. I can hardly believe it -- you were the only one that caught the Marilyn Monroe pose! That was absolutely the intention and I think if Marilyn was alive today, even she would get a chuckle :D

  8. those are precious! I love the "rear end" views! I wonder if your love of cats started BEFORE the figurines or did they have something to do with it?

    I sooooo wish I had been able to meet you all in NY this past weekend, sounds like you all had a fabulous time!!

    Happy Valentine's Day My Wonderful Friend!

  11. How cute.

    To answer your question, there were 6 and 3 but we lost Crystal a year ago, so he's up there facing the other direction. Gracie has been good about remembering Crystal when she's made us a header.
