A little break

You may have noticed I've been absent from my blog the last week
Sisco has been missing since Monday night and we have no idea where she might be
We're trying to stay positive, but it's really hard
I'm going to take a little break from my blog for now as it's too hard when I can't stop thinking about my little baby

♥ Monday Etsy Loves ♥ All of my Love ♥

Happy Monday!!
Hope your week is off to a good start
My tomato plants are still alive by the way!
I know I've haven't mentioned them in a while, bet you thought I'd killed them!
No, I have lots of green tomatoes
I'm just hoping we still have a little bit of nice weather and they ripen
I'm totally glad I grew them, and I've learnt so much
I'll definitely do it again last year
Little tip, make sure where you put them has enough space for the roots to grow
Otherwise you'll end up with 8ft skinny plants, and they don't look good! haha

I've been drinking lots of herbal teas lately to keep warm
I don't usually like fruity teas, but I've got and Apple and Cinnamon one and it makes the flat smell amazing!
What's you favorite teas? I love getting recommendations

Cat Crazy Saturday

Happy Caturday!
Hope your weeks been good!
This weekend I plan to sew my heart out, although my craft area really needs tidying
I'm trying to ignore it for now as I have so much to do
But I hate it messy
Every now and then I'll spend a while and make it all neat
And every time I think to myself 'why don't I do this more often, it's looks so nice'
But, I don't
Ever wish you could just click your fingers like Sabrina the teenage witch and everything would be sorted?
If only!

Anyway onto these weeks finds


Love this cat brain illustration!

These cards are cute!


How amazing are these?
Purrfect for Halloween!

These are so sweet!
I don't care what age I am, I think I'll always love Hello Kitty!

Love this rug!

And that's it for this week! Remember kiss your fur babies from me!

Autumn Inspiration

Bit of a different post on my blog today
As much as I love the changing seasons
I'm aware that getting up in the morning to be greeted by darkness instead of the sun beaming through your bedroom window can be hard
The weather can really affect your mood and I know a lot of people that get the Winter blues
I do too sometimes!
But I totally believe in focusing on the positive and trying not to let the negative in.
When I first started my blog I wasn't too sure where it'd go, but I knew one thing
I wanted it to be positive
I wanted it be be something I can look back on and smile
We all have our bad days and crappy times, but I never want to put that aspect into my blog
I don't want to focus on the bad, I want to look forward to the good
So, here are some inspiring quotes I love, that are great for a little pick me up

It's been so dull here and raining lots

I absolutely love art that is creepy cute!
And this is definitely that!

When I saw this print

Seriously, how can you not love it?
Unfortunately the artist slipped my mind, but lately I came across her site and fell in love again!
Her work is so cute!
