Goodbye, Sweet Sam

Saturday we had to say goodbye to one of the sweetest cats we've ever had the joy of having in our family.

Sam was given to me by my Mom 10 years ago... he was probably 1 - 1 1/2 years old then.

He was a sweet-natured cat and patiently shared his space with the turkeys and birds and chickens.


He loved catnapping... a lot!


...even with dogs yapping all around him...

He quietly sat on the back porch, watching squirrels in the nearby trees.

 And catnapped some more...

I've posted about Sam over the years... you can read stories about his love of catnip, his turkey watching, and tolerance of dogs here.

Goodbye, Sweet Sam. We'll miss you. ♥

Another Holiday Ornament Sneak Peek

The weather we've been having here on the Cumberland Plateau in Tennessee has really put me in the wintertime crafting mood! Overnight we had a low of 18 degrees and I woke up to light snow flurries!

I'm still working on ornaments for my Winter White Wonderland collection...
and I wanted to take a minute to share a few photos with you.

I'll have mistletoe clusters (as seen above) made from steel wire, vintage glass beads, early 1900s Christmas sheet music, and glass glitter...

and mittens and stockings made from natural cotton batting and old-fashioned silver tinsel.

You'll find the entire collection here on November 21st!

Thanks for stopping by!

A Little Sparkly Preview...

Adding the pièce de résistance to the glass glitter cones... antique buttons and vintage metallic ribbons purchased years ago... little hand-fashioned medals, if you will. I have used these items sparingly over the years because I don't want them to end.

If you want to see what I'll have to offer, just pop over to my Honeysuckle Lane Shop blog. I hope to start the sale November 21st! Get your shopping list ready! :)

Take care & God bless,
