    Help me decide on a floor stencil, please.

    My husband and I are planning on stenciling our kitchen floor, which is currently unstained concrete. He is being a little less than helpful in deciding on the stencil, and I cannot pick which I like best. The base color will be navy, and the stenciling will depend on which one we pick. Here our...

    Catching Ezra and What to Do

    My daughter was at her boyfriend's apartment yesterday and found this little sweetie sitting on his patio. She called and asked me to help pick out a name. We--her boyfriend included--decided on Zelda Hermione Skye. I thought I would introduce her.

    Missing Feral Friend

    I am just putting this here because I have myself sick with worry and need to talk about it. We have a feral that claimed our front porch more than three years ago.

    We found a 5-week old kitten two weeks ago. He was covered in fleas, extremely malnourished, anemic, lethargic, spots of mange, and a burn on his hip. We fell in love, named him Silas Endeavour Book, and he is now part of our lovely glaring of 9. We took him to the vet and he is on the road to...
