So what'ya think? Did you read my article above? How cute is that, huh? I found a great website that lets you write your own newspaper article that you can add to your blog or website. What a great idea!
Imagine how fun this would be for kids...their own words in a newspaper clipping.
Have a wonderful day...Andrea
P.S. Everything is fine in Nebraska...just thought I'd have a little fun :o)

Now, this is Emily. The second cat we decided to save. When we saw Emily for the first time, she was a mess. She was only a kitten and was already off to a bad start. Her eyes were a mess with infection and she was completely flea infested. We brought her home , took her to the vet, washed her up (3 times...Whew! That was a job) and found a gorgeous baby girl under all those fleas. She too is my shadow...I actually step on her tail quite a bit cuz she's usually right underneath each step I take...and the poor thing doesn't make a sound...not even a meow or screech...cuz for some reason doesn't have the ability to make noise. She's our quite angel. But...as you can see from her pose here...she's a bit more unlady like than Molly. She is always plopping herself down and just spreads herself out...the girl has no shame :o)
Anyways, the point here is...save a life...adopt.

She carries these lovely strand lights to use for the holidays...or any days for that matter...in beautiful sherbert colors with names like...Wedding Cake, Cotton Candy, Buttercream, Pistachio, Bubble Gum, Melonball, Icicle Dream and Lilac Lollipop....getting hungry yet. These are also available in 5 and 7 watt bulbs, perfect for chandilers and nightlights.
She also makes special edition bulbs for the holidays...like these yummy scented CandyCane ones. She infuses the white silicone with candycane scent and adds pink glitter to give the effect of real candycane pieces. When lit, they give off a light candycane scent. Can you say YUMMY!
These lights are perfect for the holidays...but, as you can see above...can be used year round for a beautiful whimsical touch.
So, run and take a peek at her website...I promise you won't be disappointed.
