Firstly, I Have Cat, a great blog for cat/animal lovers, did a gift-buying feature on etsy sellers who have special listings that benefit animal related charities. Tiger and I are in it alongside many other creature-loving etsy sellers.
Yesterday I celebrated my birthday with my family since I'm home for Thanksgiving weekend (my real birthday isn't until tuesday).
My mom gave me this beautiful vintage photograph of a woman standing in front of an easter egg tree. It's such an incredible photo, and I think the woman looks like she belongs in a Hitchcock film.
My sister gave me this blackbird necklace and bird-printed blouse. She knows me so well!
These are pictures from Thanksgiving itself. I love that we have a house full of animals again. We used to have 5 - Tiger, Spotty, Blacky (our three cats) and O'Malley & Gizmo (our pups). We lost Spotty, Blacky, O'Malley, and Gizmo all within the same two years, which was really hard.
I'm so grateful I still have my Tiger, and within the past few months we adopted Baby (above, loving the tredmill) and Jarret (below).
Thanksgiving always felt like the most animal-oriented holiday in our house (maybe because of the sharing of the turkey), so it felt really nice to have many animals with us again.
On Friday afternoon, my mom and I went to Viviana's Vintage in Clinton, which is, I think, my favorite vintage shop. It feels like a real clothing shop in that every time I go, I can find something I love in exactly my size (something that's usually tricky with vintage stores).
This is the dress I came home with.
I hope you're all having a great Saturday! Keep warm.
