Feminine Felidae

Are you a cat lover, or secretly a cat hoarder? Learn the ways of the claw with the fanatically interesting book, Cat Lady Chronicles by Diane Lovejoy. Be engrossed with bold and colorful cat images, featuring fine artists from around the world, while learning about a true story of a wonderful woman, that found a new meaning in life with her rescued cats.


My favorite part of the book is when the author mentions, while realizing she is who she is, that there are more important things in life, than material possessions.

"Who am I?" I still carry the Ferragamo tote bag I bought more than a decade ago and acquire affordable antiques for our historic home. It's hard to resist material temptations. But when it comes to the "It" item in my life, it is the interconnections with Lucius, Lydia, Leo, Linus, L.B., Alvar, Lillie, T.J., Perkins and Miss Tommie. Connectivity means much more to me than a command center for communications, a site for bundling electronic interactions. People, pets, art and books enrich our spirits and fuel our lives." (Lovejoy 152)

In chapter eight, Lovejoy reminds us, "...if you are inclined to feed stray cats on a regular basis, ...buy trousers or shorts with deep pockets,...." She notes that she is, "...prepared to feed a hungry cat anytime." (Lovejoy 113)

Here are some lovely fashion choices that may suit you as well:

What do you Think about Style.com/Print?

I received Style.com/Print Fall 2012 magazine in the mail a few months ago, and I have enjoyed it so far. I like "The Top Ten.." sections, but they could have left out the top ten party animals. The lists give a good perspective of the season, and the picture quality is interesting and easy to read. It has a fun and modern layout, which young people enjoy. I wish the section entitled The Trend Report, was a little bit more in depth, but for those that do not care about reading minuscule details, it is perfect. Another cool section is called The Instant Get, which features luxury contests to enter. The magazine also features artwork, information about designers, and street style from various cities. If you have this issue, what do you think about  it? Did it intrigue you to want to purchase a full subscription, or were you unimpressed? I think I like it better than WWD Magazine. Read more about the first issue, and you can purchase your subscription here.

Note: I am not affiliated in any way with Style.com. This is just my opinion based on owning the second issue of this magazine.

My Mistake

Hello everyone,

Please excuse the mess on this blog. I accidently deleted all of my pictures on my blogs, because I removed them from my gallery on my new phone, not knowing it would remove them from my albums online. Please bear with me while I salvage some of my previous posts, by finding the old images and adding them. It will take a few days, and I may delete a few posts. Thank you for your patience.
