My youngest cat, little Rosie is not that much an outside cat, she only goes out with "brother" Arthur or with me




Therefore I bought her a cat tower ! and she is so happy with it !



I received this handmade service some 25 years ago. It came from La Bretagne in France and is destinated for cider. But it is also very useful for white wine because the clay keeps the wine cool.



another service I inherited from my grandma. The glasses are handpainted and the service must be at least 80 years old. But it looks still new and I still have all 6 glasses !

The cat tower is cool!
You have some really cool antiques too! :P
Are you leaving them to your daughter-in-law?

Your kitty is so sweet! I love your sets and they are in great shape for their age.
Thanks for dropping by my blog too.

I'm happy for your kitty. I think all kitties deserve such a tower. Your special sets; both are so unique. The blue one is particularly wonderful since it was your grandmother's. Kathi

That is such a cute photo of Rosie! Looking like a young lady :-)

I know many that have got that kind of cat towers for their cats and the cats really seem to like them! That's so great!

You've got some unique things there -especially the hand painted ones. Lovely.

Gattina,

I love the service that was your grandmother's. What a wonderful treasure and keepsake and handpainted makes it even more delightful. Thanks so much for sharing. It's absolutely beautiful!!!

Grandma's service is lovely -- but not "me". I can still appreciate it's beauty though! But I LOVE your clay service! That is perfectly ME! I'm such a pottery fanatic! I absolutely LOVE the stuff - and don't OWN any! Is that crazy or what???

I hope Rosie continues to LOVE her cat tree! Mine gets used as a catch all most of the time... and then on the rare occasion Freedom wants to use it, she has to push through my things to get to it! Ugh...
