Happy Holidays!

Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a wonderful holiday week of fun and relaxing! Yesterday I took Diana and my grand-daughters into San Francisco to see the Nutcracker Ballet.  We rode Bart and then walked a few blocks to an area they call “The Plaza”.   It’s a beautiful area and it was filled with […]

Love that ornament. So pretty!

Merry Christmas!

Pat Godkin - Dear Anne: thank you for sharing your holiday celebrations. I was thrilled to see you will be at Homespun Holly 2015. I have registered for my 2nd year!! It will be great to finally meet you in person.

Mary T Salmon - Lily will love her puppy!
I hope to mark a quilt tomorrow. I finished my Bunny Hill quilt for granddaughter, Sarah. I made a pillowcase to match. I use your satin ruffle, just like the pattern and used it on the pillowcase too.
Have a wonderful Christmas, Anne.

julie zaloudek - A trip to San Francisco and the ballet–what a fun way to start the holiday celebration!
We’ve done some lunch/shopping outings to get in the spirit. I went to Starbucks this morning. Tamales and posole tonight, presents and good food tomorrow. Along with tossing treats from Santa to the cats!
Have a wonderful and relaxing Christmas–all the best to you and your family in 2015!

Karen S. - What a beautiful day in the City! And “little Chelsea” is just adorable. What a sweet gift for little Lily. Merry Christmas to all of you, and thank you for all you give us throughout the year!

December 25, 2014 - 3:57 pm

Tammy - Merry Christmas. The ballet sounded wonderful.

December 26, 2014 - 5:48 pm

Barb - Ah, The Nutcracker is such a charming way to celebrate the holidays – how fun for all of you. Chelsea’s “twin” is just too adorable – like Chelsea herself. And the Santa ornament from Ireland is so beautiful – what a wonderful gift!!

I do hope you had a peaceful, joyous and very Merry Christmas!

Miss Jean - Happy New Year, Anne! Next year, if you don’t want to travel to San Francisco, The Gallo Theater in Modesto has a fabulous Nutcracker performance. The daughters of our friends are in it.


I was going through pictures today and I found some of Moochers my cat. Moochers, I can’t believe we named her that, the poor cat.  She was such a frail thing when she found us, and the name didn’t fit at all.  But there we were in the vet’s office and they asked me her name.  Moochers was all […]

Letty - Okay, the shot that made me laugh out loud was the one with his legs spayed out straight behind! He’s adorable!

December 2, 2014 - 5:07 pm

Letty - Okay, I just gawped at the pictures and didn’t read first. Moochers is a SHE! Sorry Miss Moochers.

December 2, 2014 - 6:09 pm

Barbara - Moochers was a very lucky cat to be adopted into your family. She looks like she is having quite the nice life. Thanks for sharing her pretty face with us.

December 2, 2014 - 6:13 pm

Anita - Such a sweet face, thank you for the update. No decorating in my house just yet. Happy holidays.

December 2, 2014 - 6:14 pm

patricia G Hayes - Ms Moochers is such a lovely color. So now you have a full family. Two doggies, a cat, is that enough now or will there be more to add sometime.
Anne. You are special.
I too enjoy the photo of her wither legs splayed. Cats are so fun, we have a three quarter siamese and never cease to notice new things about her and her antics even though she is eight and a half she is still going strong. Sleeps with us every night, is such a member of the family. Just us three, dad mom and Suki. Suzi rules though, does your Ms M?? Patricia G

Mary T Salmon - Anne:
I can feel the love between you and Moochers…such a wonderful connection.

December 2, 2014 - 7:54 pm

Tina - I love the picture of her laying on her tummy with her legs sticking out behind her – Too funny!!! ;o))

December 2, 2014 - 8:13 pm

Miss Jean - We had a cat once that we named Uegly – pronounced you-glee. The girl we got her from said she was ugly and had named her that. She grew up to be a beautiful part Siamese cat.

December 2, 2014 - 8:39 pm

DeAnna Dodson - Awww, isn’t she just precious! I so much want to hug her. :D

December 2, 2014 - 10:25 pm

Nancy B. - Precious kitty love :)

December 3, 2014 - 12:14 am

Hildy - She’s beautiful! My cats are 10yo now and it shows. They stay more inside where it’s warmer and the connection between us grows stronger every day. As much as I love kitties I think it’s even better when they’re older:-)

December 3, 2014 - 12:29 am

michele - hello
years ago in my family we had a similar cat , same color ,same fur . All the cats inour home were called POMPON.
each time my mother thought it is a male . No no she was and of course she gave birth.
I like Moochers

December 3, 2014 - 2:45 am

Megan - So precious, so beautiful.

December 3, 2014 - 5:23 am

Sue H - She is beautiful …. love her color!!! My own Polly has a Sherpa bed like Moochers and she also lays out with legs straight behind her! They could maybe be friends???!!!!

December 3, 2014 - 6:15 pm

Ronda - Sweet kitty! I think the name suits her! We always start decorating the day after thanksgiving ( that is unless black Fridays hasn’t kicked our tails). I love Christmas decorations and I love looking at my tree when all lit up! The last 2 years the season seemed short and we haven’t put up all or Christmas décor:( Maybe the old saying is true the older you get the faster the year goes by lol. Looking forward to the new site.

December 4, 2014 - 6:10 am

Barb - Moochers is truly a beauty! What a really pretty girl.

Am I correct, but don’t you have at least 2 other cats – I think they are black kitties. Or am I wrong & confused?

Anyway, give Moochers a scratch on the head from me :-)

December 4, 2014 - 7:14 am

mimi'sdarlins - Hi Anne,
I’m sure Moochers doesn’t mind her name at all…I expect when she found you she was happy to be called anything :)
Thanksgiving is usually the go ahead to turn on the outdoor Christmas lights and begin to transition the house from autumn to winter decorating. All that said, I’m a bit slow to start this year but today am hanging garland outside to welcome visitors. Happy Holidays :)

December 4, 2014 - 8:20 am

ina - what a beautiful kitty….love the name. ;p

December 15, 2014 - 10:47 am

Ginger - I know this post has been up for a couple of weeks, but I have read it 2-3 times. The photos of Moochers are wonderful. What a great name and great photos of a beautiful cat. Thanks for sharing your critters with us. I love to read about animals and their humans.

blessings and Merry Christmas,
Ginger Gwartney

Laura Lynch - Ann,

Moochers is so beautiful!! God knew exactly what home needed Moochers & what home Moochers needed . . . a great match! I’ve done several cat, dog, guinea pig & bird rescues in my time . . . they are always the best pets . . . I think they KNOW they’ve been saved! You are a kindred spirit (reference from one of favorite movie series, Anne of Green Gables w/Megan Fellows).

I start decorating after Thanksgiving . . . but some years it takes me a week or so to decorate.


December 30, 2014 - 9:02 am

greg - She’s such a beautiful cat! Those eyes! I had to do a bit of name changing when I brought my two cats home from the shelter, too. And of course, they love to help with quiltmaking… although I’d rather work alone!


It’s that time of year again.  Thanksgiving, a day to give thanks for family, friends, and all the people who enrich our lives.  I love Thanksgiving, I love the tradition and I love cooking the feast.  I’m thankful that across the world my family in Germany enjoyed the same traditional food on their table.  Lily will […]

Tammy - That meal looks really yummy and is making my mouth water. I live in Canada so we had ore last month. I am really jealous that all my American relatives and friends will be getting that tomorrow while I probably eat some sort of leftovers. Happy Turkey Day everyone.

Hildy - Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family! And it would be beautiful if it was a holiday here in germany a day off work is always a good thing;-)
