  15. That kitten is adorable!! I have three cats and they are a handful even though they are full grown. Haha. Love your hair! I'll definitely be coming back to read this blog in the future. :)

  16. So I just heard about you on freckled nest and of course I had to visit your etsy shop!! You are beyond talented. I absolutely adore the headbands, but I am LOVING your illustrations! They are so cheerful looking. My favorite is Derby!

  17. Oh wow, what a lovely dress!! I'm just stopping by Freckled Nest and wanted to say "hi!"

  18. I haven't seen Inception. The only two comments I have heard were "confusing" or "boring". I never see movies in the theatre, but it seems like something I will watch when it comes out. That kitten is too cute. My best friend back home got a puppy and I can't wait to visit just to play with him. :)

  19. That dress is fabulous! This is my first time to your blog, and I must say. It's awesome, and you are gorgeous!

  20. awwwww kittens!!!!! so cute. i love the one of it squeaking haha. also, i really cannot get over your hair...it always looks so good! has it been white and blue for a long time? (it has since i started following you anyway) i'm assuming your hair is probably blonde anyway as i never see you with roots lol and the platinum colour actually looks really natural (maybe it is?!) anyway, the blue is so fun, i love the placement. that dress is adorable too!! you have quite the tan going as well...jealous! haha, okay...so inception, i liked it. i really liked the cast...however i was disappointed with the ending. i feel like sometimes it's a cop out when they end movies that way...i was a bit disappointed with the ending...annnnnd it was too long.

  21. That white Kitten is sooo cute! Ahh Makes me want a kitten again. And I saw Inception yesterday, and I have to say it wasn't what I had anticipated but it wasn't bad. I just felt that it was dragged out a bit and I can't say I was to happy with the ending but I can't say I was surprised either.

  28. Oh hey....adding to the "i'm-here-from-freckled-nest" chorus. I'm actually here every day, sooo...that makes me a stalker, but whatever.

  32. Hey there! I found your blog via Freckled Nest. Your cats are so cute!! I also have two cats (Sushi and Buddha) and they are my world. I just taught myself how to knit over the winter and have made two afgans with plans on making a third. I do plan on learning how to do more. I have just "liked" you on FB and I look forward to more of your blogs!!
