Official Warning

This is your official warning, internet. I woke up this morning singing “White Christmas” and lit up a gingerbread-scented candle.

Be afraid.

And have a picture of my cat. (Okay, he’s really Kevin’s cat now. I know when I’m beat.)

I am little! And orange! And compact!

That’s Ben in the background, but in his defense, he is laying at one of those weird angles and is actually made primarily of muscle and entitlement.

Also, I wrote a gardening post over at Beautiful Wildlife Garden, about a low-maintenance garden I don’t actually own, which, which not quite as amusing as my Plea For A Better Class Of Knick-Knacks,still has some pretty good plant lists for our area.

ETA: Thanks for everybody who asked about Ben! He's doing great. The last big flare-up after his back teeth got pulled---which had put me in the oh-god-this-is-it mode---really was the last one. He's been fine since, and continues to run the household and bully everyone except occasionally Kevin.

Re: Garden knick-knacks - try DesignToscano.com They have weird, classical, gothic, twee, fantasy, dragon, gargoyle, (nac mac feegles), the obligatory gnome and some that are just plain odd - like Michelangelo's David at 300 lbs (the model's weight, not the statues).

Even if you never buy anything from them, it will soothe your soul to see some of the things they have on offer. ("Witch Parking Only, violators will be toad" anyone?

Oh man, I love Design Toscano. I used to get their catalog and just dream of having a backyard to put these things in.

oh yeah that's the thing that used to be Dancing Dragon, right?

Ummm... Yeah! I didn't know that until I googled the name. I found it when I was searching for crying angels on the internets and fell in love with the Nac Mac Feegle pair of statues.
