Happy Monday everyone. The cold is finally on the way out and we are back to just 32 degrees LOL. It was so cold over the weekend. Way too cold for skiing. But I think I’m going skiing again today before the rain comes.
I haven’t showed you my three new custom cat plates from my favorite whimsy Etsy shop artist, Rachel Kozlowski. I ordered three more of my oldest cats with my Etsy gift card from Christmas. And the kids and I love how they turned out! Silly and a little cheesy how my brother would say but that’s exactly what we wanted.
The kids picked their characteristic outfits.
But you don’t have to pick outfits. I ordered a custom plate for my husband’s cousin (our vet) as a birthday gift. And this is her dog that passed away. She didn’t want an outfit. I think the plate is adorable:
And there are the plates in our kitchen with the others:
If you are new around here then you might have missed the post about Monkey passing away (click HERE), my first set of plates HERE, my kitchen plate wall in general (click HERE) or my visit with the artist (click HERE).
And for those of you who liked my curtains and have asked me to start selling them because you just don’t want to make them yourself, well I still don’t want to make them to sell but I thought the curtains below would be a nice similar graphic alternative. Don’t you think so? Click HERE to see.
And here a photo to compare mine again and click HERE for the tutorial:
Yes not the same but similar and would look really great too.
If you follow me on Instagram then you saw that I posted about leggings. Say what? I know it’s not the norm for me to post about clothing, but I feel like I need to become a spokesperson for them now. And no I’m not being sponsored although I wish I was. I’d love to accept a monthly supply of different Spanx!
I haven’t started to buy their underwear yet but I love their line of leggings that I describe as a butt bra and jiggle proof. I have tried many other leggings and they just aren’t even comparable. So I’ve been gladly splurging on them.
Did you ever stand behind someone at the register with leggings on where you just wish you didn’t have to look but it’s just all in your face and not good? I feel like it just can’t happen with these leggings.
I actually have to buy the cropped leggings (click HERE) so they fit perfectly on my legs in length but they do have them in regular length too (click HERE). The faux leather look is definitely my favorite but I also have THESE and THESE. And in case you are wondering about the boots, they are from Aldo and now 60% off which makes them perfect for next year (click HERE).
And then on Friday night a drain pipe burst under our master bathroom sink which now makes me think I should just rip it all out since I was planning on doing that at some point anyways. It of course puts everything else on hold then. But why should I redo the piping for it and then down the road redo it all again? I think i might just try to do it now. Cross your fingers that I don’t run into anything awful. And I hope I can finally go and get my floating vanity from Ikea next week or the following.
And two cute photos of my kitties to finish this post:
