Here Kitty Kitty!

Bad Cat Jewelry invited me and Miss Lizzy to join in the cutest idea for a treasury. She and another Etsian had the idea to feature shops with cat in the name. Sounds like there are lots out there in Etsyland. I had no idea!

So here it is. My Lizzy is representing TopCat Creations at We are on the bottom right side. Go out and give us and click, along with all the other kitties!

Etsy is so much fun!

3 Little Monkeys

No, I'm not posting about monkeys today. Actually, 3 Little Monkeys is the name of an Etsy shop belonging to one of my SEUS teammates, LilSouthernGirl, or Michelle. She has the cutest kids items. Bows, bibs and tutus, and so much more!

Michelle is the Mom of three. That is where her shop name came from. Her nickname for them, her 3 little monkeys. She loves to make kids items. Her love of making children's items came in handy when she wanted to bring in income to help her family and also be able to stay at home with her children, who have special needs. LilSouthernGirl's 3 Little Monkeys shop has been open on Etsy for about five months. And Michelle does craft fairs and flea market sales around MS. Just recently she was in Tupelo.

Here are a few of my favorites from her shop.

Of course, what girl wouldn't love a tutu dress!?

The little piggies were calling out to me. Oink, oink!

My most recent favorites are these cute flannel bibs. The cupcakes look yummy too. Oh, and she will also monogram it for you.

She has so many adorable items that I could go on. But why don't you visit LilSouthernGirl's 3 Little Monkey's shop on Etsy and see for yourself. She has a weekly special and frequently has other promotions and sales. This week her special is her very popular "add-a-bow" nylon band. They look comfy!

It really is a Monster!

I ordered a custom dog bed from StylinPupPillows, one of my fellow SEUS Street Team Leaders. I wanted it so our 5 doggies could get on our bed and watch TV with us. I just couldn't seem to get them to stay off our bed. So, Emma was wonderful enough to make the dog bed to my size specifications exactly. I wanted it to be about the width of a regular dog bed, but the length to go all of the way across the foot of our king size bed.

She decided it was better to ship it to me and let me stuff it since it was going to be rather large. I thought that would be great since I've had a couple bags of poly-fil lying around forever. Whew! Did I ever underestimate the size of this thing! So, this is what I had to get to stuff the bugger.

Yes, it is 10 lbs. of Poly-fil!

And this is what happened when I opened the bag.
It just kept growing!

It took me about an hour to stuff this thing.

And it is perfect!!

Except the dogs wont lay on it! They stay on the floor now... :\

Seasonal Nice

This treasury was created by a nice EtsyFriends Team member, Reesa (ReesasFavorites). Sounds like she had some trouble when Etsy was freakin' out yesterday.

Thanks for including me Reesa!

Because I Said So!

Another treasury west snagged on another late night! I need to stop worrying so much and get to sleep earlier! :\

Ok, on a happier note, I have had an obsession lately with Fall colors! Guess it is because I don't tolerate the heat very well. Can't wait for the cooler weather to get here in Alabama. Unfortunately, I think it will be quite awhile coming.:( But, I'm getting my Fall fix on Etsy. Hope you enjoy these SEUS finds!

Sharing some of my Photos

I wanted to post a few of my photographs. I'm working on improving my technique. There is a very vivid Marigold picture here that I used the macro setting on. I have enjoyed playing around with that. Hope you enjoy the photos.
