Found my Kitty

My kitty finally came home last night. She was missing for a week, and I didn't think I would ever see her again. Then last night she finally reappeared. Our neighbor came by to tell us that she had apparently been locked in their garage and when they opened the door she came running out. We heard her crying outside, and when my son Dylon opened the door there she was running toward our house meowing loudly. She was so cold and very hungry. She has gotten very thin over the past week. After a big meal, and lots of cuddling she is so happy now. She hasn't stopped purring the whole time.

The funniest part is how happy our pet bunny is to see her. He was moping around all week. He just kept laying on his side and seemed sick. Last night he was bounding around all over the house. He was jumping in the air and leaping sideways. It seemed like he was dancing for joy.

Here is Pierre. He won't stop following Kitty around.

My New Blog

Welcome to my new blog-Belle Maison (Beautiful Home) I think the title sums up what this blog is about. Life, Family, Good Food, and the beautiful things I love.

Luckily no work today, so I spent the morning and early afternoon driving around with my hubby. We stopped for pastry and some delicious peppermint hot chocolate in Durham at this cute little cafe that specializes in Crepes-they have any kind of crepe imaginable. There were a couple of items on the menu I can't wait to go back and try. One in particular was a crepe filled with chunks of chicken, fresh mozzerella, and roasted red peppers. yummy!!!

Okay, This is my first creation. It is really heavy. It was a beautiful old table which I have refinished in a pale ivory-barely pink color. It is for sale on Belle Maison. I especially love the rose swag appliques on top. If you can't tell I am proud of my first piece.

We found this cutie pie about a month ago... or should I say she found us.

We haven't exactly agreed on a name yet. I think her name is going to be Kitty. Not exactly creative, but at least it fits this time. Our old rabbit was named Cow, so the new cat should be glad we got it right this time.
