Halloween Decorations

Halloween decorations are my favorite part of Halloween.  Well OK I really like the candy party too, and the autumn baking pumpkin bread and muffins. Halloween trick or treat costumes are pretty fun too.  I love all the stuff that goes with Halloween except for the scary, gory, ghostly, zombie, spooky stuff, I just really decorate with cute black cats, funny pumpkins, playful ghosts and pretty fun orange and black haunted house type stuff.

Personalized Halloween Greetings

The first thing you will probably notice when you come into my Halloween house is a personalized Halloween greetings doormat! I love holiday doormats because they really add to the theme of the holiday. There are really great doormats out there with harvest, fall and autumn themes that are all gorgeous too, but a fun personalized one is nice too, it’s a great gift idea to surprise a family member or friend also.

Decisions, decisions. Will you choose spooky ghosts and goblins, cute smiling black cats or maybe a flying witch on her broomstick! If you really aren’t sure or don’t want to change your door mat that often, it’s fun to choose autumn themes which work great for Thanksgiving and the whole beautiful autumn season.

Here's some of my favorite featured Halloween Decorations

Every Day Is Cat Day

Every day is Cat Day in my home. I know because my cats have proven this to me. You may think it's say Thursday morning, but no. It's time to feed the cats morning. Then it's time to pet one of the cats, don't worry, they will let you know which cat and when.

Perhaps you thought you would sit and read the newspaper? Not if there is a kitty who has decided it is the perfect place to take a nap. That's OK because well, she's so cute. Great time to go make the bed. Well not if there is a cat in it, either snoozing or ready to play lets attack the blanket, one of our very favorite games anyway!

 Pets Are Family

I suppose I could try being the boss. It's up to me right, whether I want to work on the laptop, read a newspaper or feed the kitties later. Yeah, no.  

Cats are so amazingly smart. So independent. And yet so loving. One purr and I melt into mush because I love them so much. Because they are my family.

Pet Friends Make A Beautiful Day

Pet friends make a beautiful day even better. They make sunny days shine brighter. Rainy days are more fun. Cold and snowy days are cozy and warm when viewed with your furry loving pet right beside you.

 Pets Are Family

If your family pet is a dog then any day is a great day to go outside and talk a walk, play in the grass, chase a ball or just sunbathe in any drop of sunshine they can find. Hot or cold weather, most dogs love it and love when you keep them company doing it. From childhood to adult world, all of my days have been better because of my dogs - read  more about my Lucky Dog Family here

 Lucky Dog Family

If your pet is a cat, well they love every weather to look out the window. Their ray of sunshine for a nap is warm and fuzzy in my house winter or summer because they are indoors and always nap ready. My three kitties below enjoying the spring sunshine but it's their favorite place all year round.

Really every day is a beautiful day to share some love with your pet friends. Celebrate the day the cat and dog way - filled with love and joy.

Once In A Blue Moon

Once in a Blue Moon something wonderful and unexpected happens. Something magical turns the tide and makes life a little surprised and inspired. That Blue Moon saying means it doesn’t happen very often. That is what makes the magic special. Things that happen all the time are expected and sometimes taken for granted. Sometimes life forgets to surprise and inspire. Motivation becomes routine. Every day starts lacking energy. 
Once in a Blue Moon you might win the lottery. Or once in a while you might get a new great job, see an old friend. Make a new friend. Every now and then something special will happen if you keep the door open you never know what surprise life will bring.
Start a new diet and fitness challenge, one you can really live with and be proud of. Paint a room. Adopt a new family member like one of the beautiful cats and dogs waiting to bring you more joy. Don’t wait forever to try something new. To mix up your routine. Add some magic to your life every now and then, you don’t have to wait for a Blue Moon, you can make your own.

It's A Beautiful Day To Have A Beautiful Day

Every day is magic and today is magical because not only will it never be this day again, but there will never be another day exactly like it again, not in our lifetime ever.  Every day to me though, is a magic day.  Each day starts a new sequence of events in our lives.  We may think everyday is the same old, same old but really, it isn't. Every single day is another time to learn something new, hug someone you love and remember that the magic is inside you.

Puppy Dog Love

Puppy dog love because pets are family too. We love our family dogs and cats and are so lucky because they have adopted us. Puppies and kittens fill our families every day with their own loyal, determined love and we are proud to share them with you too.

Meet Bella the long haired chihuahua I am proud to call my grandpuppy.  My daughter sent me a picture of Bella excitedly but safely waiting for her ride to Grammy's house the other day, don't worry she remembers to Buckle Up For Safety Too!

Bella doesn't really ride in the car seat, that's for my granddaughters, but she is rides safely too and loves her car rides.

Cats Are Family Too

Cats are family too and in my house, they rule the roost. They have us very well trained and we feed them, pet them and give them their space for naps on demand.  Unconditional love, each cat with their own personality and loving purrs.  Cats are personalized gifts of love.

Cats Are Family Too

Each of our cats adopted us, Sammy our oldest was found in a backyard as a little kitten as was his sister Smokey who adopted my daughter.  Mimi was at a rescue event at PetSmart when she was a kitten and adopted us immediately.  My baby Charli cat was abandoned by a group of feral cats and living under a loading dock next door to the firehouse we worked at. She meowed and meowed until we heard her and when I walked over this tiny, dirty baby adopted me to be her Mom.
