Shoe Cat

Posted in Home on July 4th, 2010 by kristin – Be the first to comment

Our cat, Sammy, loves shoes and feet. I won’t bother trying to explain it because we probably won’t ever understand it, and I don’t even know if I want to know. Here’s Sammy in his favorite chill-out spot: underneath our gossip bench by the front door, an area that tends to collect approximately one million pairs of shoes. You can tell he’s really enjoying himself if you look carefully at the bit of tongue sticking out of his mouth. Weirdo!

Caption contest? Sure, go ahead.

While we’re on the subject, here’s a video of Sammy eating a chocolate pizelle.

Marry Me, Amy Butler!

I’m only 5% kidding.

Amy Butler is a goddess. I think that I would actually have trouble speaking if I ever met her. First, gorgeous adorable cute fabric, and now… WALLPAPER? Amy B. — you are perfect.

I’m so tempted to wallpaper one of the walls in our living room with Lacework (in ocean) because, well, it just speaks shouts to me. Todd has reminded me that our walls are textured and it would be a nightmare sanding them down. And then there’d be the matter of actually putting up the wallpaper. And then there will come the day that we put our place up for sale and every single person who comes to look will really realllly love it except for the wallpaper so no one ever buys it and Todd and I live sadly ever after.

Immeasurable heartbreak, friends. I love this wallpaper, but Todd is making too much sense. Or is he? Feel free to comment and change my mind.

Krodd Castle on Apartment Therapy

Well, hey! A tiny corner of Krodd Castle was on Apartment Therapy today. I found these vintage letter cards at my favorite antique store in Georgetown and mounted them on acid-free paper in IKEA frames.

Now when you see framed flash cards, you can be all, “Um, Krodd totally started that trend.” (Then scoff for emphasis.)
