Like Herding Cats!

I am ready to kill this loaner of a computer. I can't for the life of me figure out how to get my photos downloaded...so sorry y'all...time for a couple of reruns! I know y'all are wanting to see what's in store and in the store. Believe me...I'd love to give y'all a few peeks, but just think of anything your little heart desires and maybe...just maybe...it will be either at Winnie & Tulula's Junk and Disorderly Sidewalk/Birthday bash or at De-Briz Presents A Midsummer's Night Dream.

I sure hope y'all are making plans to come see us at one of these great events. Remember...W&T's is June 5th from 10am-5pm and De-Briz will be Thursday evening from 5:30pm-8:30pm. Cat Daddy will be on hand at both locations and I'll be too busy to keep up with what he is doing...wink, wink!
Getting things ready for back to back shows has been a challenge...what with my occasional lapses of attention. Trying to plan two different looks is exciting, but also frustrating. Ask me if I would do it different...no way. When Liz, Fran and I first started talking about an event and then actually selecting a date, I was so excited at the prospect of working with these two talented women, there was just no way I would pass up such a great opportunity. Did I mention we are holding it in their back yard? Did I mention that same backyard is about an acre or more? Did I mention it is gorgeous and shady? We are all working hard at both venues to ensure that everything is just what you as a shopper would want to see and buy and we are doing all we can to make it a success. We'd love to see a De-Briz show become a twice yearly event...but really...that depends on us providing quality merchandise and y'all coming out to shop! (No pressure y'all...just thought I would throw that in!) This won't be the last post on this subject...I promise you that! On top of all this, May is always a busy month for us what with Mother's Day and all the birthdays we have as a family in May. We start the month off with the Oldest Melon Head's, then Sister Trash is up next and we finish off the month with Graycie and I. She and I always have a birthday party and blow out the candles together. She was kind and only made me blow one out this year...what a sweetheart! You have no idea how much this means to me, but I love those silly candles and what they represent. She is one of the lights of my life...although I can't hold her a candle to go by! Ahhh...to be 8 going on 18 again!

To wrap this up for the night and speaking of birthdays...a certain someone we all know and love is celebrating today. If everyone would raise their glasses with me, Cat Daddy would like to make a toast to one of his favorite kittens.

Happy Birthday Sweet Tea...hope you had a FAB U LOUS one!

XOXO

What's with that loaner computer? Not allowing you to load your beautiful photos, drats! Wanted to say something else, but got to be a nice lady here (well... you know ;)

Thanks for your always encouraging words too, Debbie they mean a lot to my little heart.

Computers suck, and they KNOW they hold us captive! Nothing makes me more pissed off than my computer! There, I got it out, I feel better. And happy birthday to Sweet Tea, hope you do something fun!

Take care, Sue

AuroraSuzette said...

Yuck. I can remember my own computer issues, not that long ago. I do wonder if you really just like a chance to toy with all of us here in Blogland with pictures of your man, Cat Daddy. Hmmm. Hope the BD celebrations were/are marvelous!!

Happy Birthday, Dear Debbie! Remember, we're not getting older, we're getting better (at least if we're doing it right). p.s. Great photos of all of those Cats!

Dar said...

Sounds like one continuous Party going on in your life....wish I could be there Hon, but you seem to be a wee bit over 1300 miles...not a day trip anymore for this ol gal. I wish you the greatest time and tons of sales, sass and sisterhood with your kindred friends and new-found friends.
Have an awesome time without me...boowho

Debra@Common Ground said...

Happy Birthday, dear Deb! Sounds like you're too busy right now to get into much trouble. Gee I hate it when you're not around! And I can't wait to see every thing that's going on with this outside show...you just HAVE to let us see what it's all about!
Hugs and Birthday Blessings to you and Gracie,
Debra

Happy Birthday!!!! me and my Mom use to share a cake. FUN,fun, fun.
Sounds like you have been busy. Hope everything goes great on the 5th!

When you get your regular computer back just go ahead and take a ballbat to this one. You'll feel better. I wish I spoke from experience but unfortunately I do not. The one I am stuck with literally makes a roar like its fixing to blow up. We have to not only turn it off but unplug it when we're done cause we're afraid it will catch the whole house on fire.

I wish I lived closer to you - all this sounds like so much fun, but just so you know my dream in life is to attend the Marburger show sometime. Trash, I live vicariously through you. You have no idea.

Kathie Truitt said...

And by the way Cat Daddy, really is the Cat Daddy. He's a handsome man!

Happy Birthday to all!!! Having computer problems is a bumer, I'm having to use my mother's computer to leave a comment, mine would'nt allow me to leave one, it's such a pain! Well I'm off to Winnie & Tulula's to set up my new booth! Blessings~~~Daphne

Wish I could get to at least one of your events. One of these days. I'm really wanting to get to the shows this Fall.

Good luck with everything and don't work too hard. Cat Daddy looks pretty darn comfortable.
