Since I was turning my personal Tumblr account into a girls & cats Tumblr anyhow, I created dreamcats, a repository of pictures of cats on film, soft focus cats, girls with cats, etc. I'm sure something like this already exists, but something like this as "curated" by me did not exist until now. Feel free to send along your favourite dreamcats, catfriends! And if you have cat allergies but love cats, you can follow dreamcats and not have to reach for tissues.
Tess (it's her birthday today!) and Kater and I have started a cat club. We have secret rings and everything. Yeah, that's right. And this post of Carly's made my day. Man, I love cats!
(For the record, I do like dawgs, too. I just prefer cats right now.)
(Oh, and I've ransacked a few people's Flickr favourites -- thanks for doing the work, Kater, Caitlin Shearer, and Sarah McNeil! I knew you'd have some good ones in there.)
erin / atlantictreefox: I'm glad you liked that line. I have no idea what it means, and I almost deleted it! People never laugh at my jokes!
danielle and dinosaur toes: Thank you! Oh, I doubt you will be. You have fine taste.
alice: Thank you! And I hope you enjoy your Gentlewoman!
SJ: Aw, I'm sorry! I'm glad you like it, though.
jen: Thank you! So nice to have some backup.
shin ae: Aw, you're sweet. Haha! I always wonder if people actually bother to read my crazy Twitter updates!
erica-knits: I think it will be my summer dress of 2010. Tavi called it a "Miu Miu knockoff fail" but hey, I'm not getting samples from Prada any time soon. Definitely try to get a copy -- it's so good. Like Lula all grown up, less dreamy.
Jane Flanagan: Sometimes I have issues with Zara buttons falling off and such, but generally it's not too bad. Thank you! That is a huge compliment!
nole: Good luck with the hunt -- I hope it ends in dress satisfaction.
May: Oh yes, the paper they used is fantastic. Such a satisfying texture, and I love the pliability of it. I guess that might sound weird, but good paper makes a huge difference. I'm glad you like the dress!
teacup adventure: An excellent equation!
Jennifer: Thank you! Yes, I definitely agree. I recently read about another blogger, who is my age, getting comments about her dressing too young for her age, but that thought had never occurred to me. It was sad, actually.
eri: Thank you! I hope you found it. I suppose that dressing actually takes work. I'm sure we've all seen the result of not thinking about it! And that includes learning about what can be age appropriate.
roberta jane: Aw, I'm sorry!
sweetie pie press: Not at all! I wanted to go, and had every intention of going to the trunk show, but I really was not well that day. I didn't leave the house at all.
Hello Lindello: I hope so too! It's pretty amazing.
Melissa: Oh, thank you -- I do take that as a compliment. I probably look my age in real life, but yeah, I agree that it's often hard to tell.
jaime: Thank you! Oh, that would be lovely. I myself would love to visit the Cloisters one day.
Miss Cris: Thank you so much!
jessica: Thank you! And yes, I agree.
nice-etc.com / caitlin: Haw haw! Yeah, thanks! Thanks for your input on Twitter, too.
alsadventure: Thank you!
alice: That seems to be the consensus, which makes me happy.
Prosecco: Thank you!
TEXTSTYLES: Seriously! So good. Kind of a bummer that it's only biannual, but maybe they'll be extra good issues. I'm glad you like the Hoof too! Amazing.
Natasha: Oh yes, I love it too.
m.bardeaux: Thank you! And of course, I love Cat Party!
melissa: Ha, thanks!
miss sophie: Thank you! I agree, the colour is great.
raquel raney: Yes! So dreamy.
