Look, look, look!

It was a GOOD mail day at Eloise's house!  Assorted things that I've ordered over the last few weeks all arrived at once - it was like Christmas!  See?

Okay, it's a crappy snapshot on my kitchen table, but it's just a snapshot.

The grate is for those ugly holes in my kitchen ceiling.  It occurred to me that heating season is approaching, and once I've fired up the woodstove I won't be able to get up there until, oh, April.  I got it from this website.  After all of your marvelous input, I've decided that it's going to be painted white to blend in with the ceiling.  I'll post pictures when it's done.  I think it's going to look really nice.

Then there's the catnip eyeballs.  They come from this etsy shop: www.etsy.com/shop/hannapt - "because every kitty deserves an eyeball to chew on."  They're made entirely of recycled fabrics, and the cats immediately settled in to savage them - didn't even take them to a dark corner first.  I got the discount three pack.

Then, there's my fabulous mask.  Another spectacular piece from merimask .  This is a terrible snapshot - look at it here.  And it's mine, all mine.  The photo doesn't really do the colors justice.  It actually looks more metallic in person.  I think you all need a piece of gorgeously sculpted leather, don't you?  Besides, she has a kid to put through college - it's not a frivolous purchase, it's an investment in the generation who's going to be paying for our social security.  :-)  Seriously - go to www.etsy.com/shop/Merimask.  At least look around.  If you're tempted to buy something... well, that's not MY fault...  I've already hung in on the wall, and I haven't even had it three hours.

A very good mail day!
