Poptastic pots and purrfect pals!

Bloggie pals!

Look what talented Tommy of Noir's Nook sent us!!

Hand painted scrumptious pots!


And from her Etsy shop

Creative cards!


How lovely! Thank you  beautiful Tommy!  

I am always in AWE at how creative and super talented my bloggie pals are - from writing stories and thoughtful essays, to photography, to drawing, to baking and knitting and crocheting to jewellry making to crafting things out of bits of stuff to reading a million books in a month to just being utterly fabulous and gorgeous! 

Me and Charlie and the Gumster salute you!

Have a great week y'all!

That was really nice of her! We do indeed have the most talented collection of people here.

Mark said...

That is some really nice looking stuff. Gumtree certainly seems interested in those pots.

Manzanita said...

How nice. Now each cat has his own pot to hide behind. I bet the human will have them filled and outdoors in a flash. We'll observe the growing progress. :)

Marg said...

Those are some mighty pretty pots. But there isn't anyone more deserving than you. Can't wait to see some pretty flowers in them. Take care.

Brian said...

Ah, jeez! All I can do is write and then only on my better days. I really, really wish I could sculpt and paint, but my artistic talents, such as they were, never developed beyond age 14. Maybe one day I'll find out I'm good at SOMETHING...

Meanwhile, I hope you enjoy your pals' marvelous stuff.

Pasha said...

Those are lovely.

And I just have to say "utterly fabulous and gorgeous" back at you, as well as "creative and super talented".

And you have lovely cats as well!

Hi Old Kitty .. how wonderful - I love 'real' pots with meaning .. and isn't a lovely reminder of Tommy and his etsy shop.

I agree many are so talented and offer so much to life .. exactly as you say .. I'd love to be able to be arty and craft oriented - but that didn't come my way.

Still we just make the best of our talents ... Charlie and Gumster do = happy sleepings in the sun!!

Have a good week .. Hilary

orbit said...

Ahh, yes. Dad says creativity is good. Creativity, coupled with recycling is even better! Good morning to you, and have a great week!

Fuzzy Tales said...

Such lovely gifts--a wonderful surprise.

Of course the question is what will you plant in the pots--surely some catnip and cat grass for the boys!

Hannah and Lucy said...

What a lovely surprise getting those hand painted pots. We hope you have pleasure in seeing them full of pretty flowers this summer - (paws crossed for a summer this year)!!
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Love those painted pots--such a great way to perk up plain old ordinary pots. Those cards are great, too!

I like those pots! Eye catching and sure to brighten a window or anywhere else they choose to be. Don't even need flowers but they would be gorgeous with flowers or plants.

Leave the pots unfilled for a while and see if the cats will sleep in them!!! I love cats in pots - or bowls. Or boxes. Goodness, I just love cats, period.
