Friendship Friday

Today marks a new chapter in my life.  For
those who don't know, when you go on
Medicare, it starts the first day of your birthday month. For me that is today...I am now on
I began Andy's Attic when I had a space in a
mall and did shows.  I have phased that part out and also decided that I don't want to do any
on-line selling.  So, for now, Andy's Attic
is being retired.  I have another blog:
which I will start using for Friendship Friday.
But for today.....

Just thinking about a friend makes you
want to do a happy dance, because a
friend is someone who loves you in
spite of your faults.

Todays quote is dedicated to all my
blogger friends.

 I know I've never told you
In the hurried rush of days
How much your friendship helps me
In a thousand little ways;
But you've played such a part
In all I do or try to be,
I want to tell you thank you
For being friends with me.

Life is a chronicle of friendship.
Friends create the world anew

Friendship Friday


The joy of being friends is just
a simple code of faith and trust,
a homey comradeship that stays
the threatened fear of darker days:
the kind of faith that brings to light
the good, the beautiful, and the bright:
and best and blest, and true and rare----
is having friends who love and care!

Today I am showing you the things I
won from Deb's blog Garage Sale Gal

This fits perfectly into the Friendship
Friday as I have made many "blogging"
friends over the years.  Deb is one of them.  I love her blog and the things she finds and was
thrilled to win her giveaway!!

Upon opening the box

I found a sweet card from Deb.

Tinker Belle decided she needed to
help me open things. 

Except she wanted to chew instead of open!! 

These are all the goodies that were included. 

A sweet pink hanky, a lovely linen towel,
two little cards, and a chintz dish. 

 A couple of stickers, buttons and little
"tickets", precious little clothes pins,
an adorable toothpick with a chick in
an egg,  and a playing card with a house.

To top it off were two very sweet hand-
made cards, a couple of post cards, and
cute little name cards.

I am a lover of "smalls" so this package/prize
was perfect for me!!  I am so happy to have
won and hope you will visit Deb's blog for
some fun and eye candy!!

Thank you Deb!,  for the prize, but mostly for
your blogging friendship!!!!

Meet my new Friend,
Tinker Belle

She is a rescue kitty.  I did not want a rescue
kitty.  Hear me out...I was under the misguided
idea that rescues were feral, or abandoned,
cats/kittens nobody wanted, were put in cages and then someone "rescued" them.

I did not realize there are rescues that
really care for these cats/kittens.  I responded to
an ad on Craig's List and went to look at
another kitten.  The wonderful foster mom
thought I would be more suited for Tinker.
She was so right.  I wanted a lover cat!
My last two cats had been taken from mom
too soon and were not really socialized well.

I wanted a cat that had been "mauled by
children".  By this I meant one that had
been around a family with kids and other pets.
A kitten that had been handled from day
one.  That was why I did not want a "rescue",
because I did not know about places that
foster these little babies.  I don't know why
I was so clueless.  I also found that they
give her the first two vaccines, deworm, check for diseases, put in a micro chip, and spay and
neuter.  Price:  $80 for one  $100 for two.

But I got my lover kitty.  She loves  to be
held and snuggled.  She is not afraid of
every little noise (except new ones) and
she is the perfect kitten for me.

If you are looking for a great rescue for
cats/kittens in Vancouver, WA.
Furry Friends is the place.

Today's quote is by Leonardo Da Vinci.
I chose it because today one of my best little
friends is leaving this world.  We have found that
we have to have our cat, Munchkin, put to sleep.
Me with my little girlie.

Miss Munch is 13 plus.  She has been the
sweetest little friend in the world! She
will go where she can run free and play.

Please note: For this quote and in the future I am taking the liberty of changing quotes that said "he", as they did in old days, to say "she".  I feel "she" is suitable for 2013.

If a woman does not make new aquain-
tances as she advances through life, she
will soon find herself left alone.  A woman
should keep her friendship in constant

Friendship is a spiritual
thing.  It is independent of
matter or space or time.
That which I love in my friend
is not that which I see.  What
influences me in my friend is
not his body, buy his spirit.

We cannot tell the precise moment
when friendship is formed.  As in filling a
vessel drop by drop there is at last a drop
which makes it run over, so in a series of
kindnesses there is at last one which
makes the heart run over.

New News

source for all pictures this post

I am very excited!!!

I've been wanting to do this for a while
and I can finally let you in on it.

I'm starting a new blog.  I'm keeping this one,too.
But I wanted one for all the other things in
my life. 

Like if I should see something unusual and want to
let you know about it right away... 

Or I get some hare brained idea I want to share.... 

Or if I heard about something and wanted to let
you know about it.

It's new so I am working out bugs.  Go over and see how I do.
