I have a closet dedicated to my shop on Etsy and decided to start digging through and here is what I found, all to be listed on ETSY (ID: within the week, many of which are Italian origin.

Snapper: Cat Tails

This is my cat Snapper. He's lovely. He's large. He stalks like a lion, and he looks like one too! He likes feet. And toilet water. He can be charming, but not when he unwinds the toilet paper roll and then shreds it to bits. All over the house. Or when he drags the kitty litter everywhere via his big paws. But, he's sweet because he loves our company. And he's silly because he thinks "Mary the Fairy" is real. We've had him ten years with the exception of a couple years when he stayed with the ex. The ex gave him back around Christmas. What'd you do, SNAPS?! Snapper's reply: he promptly shredded the wrapping paper! Welcome home!

Letting Begonia's Be Begonia's

Letting Begonia's Be Begonia's

Letting bygone's be bygone's as the saying goes. These pictures are of my Grandma's begonia I have been tending to since she passed away over 15 years ago. There've been times when I didn't think it would make it but it seems very happy now and let's me know by blooming these sweet, shimmery white flowers. So, I believe, in this case, we DON'T let bygones be bygones.. we let the begonia's be begonia's.
Grandma lives on!
