Thrifty Thursday and Happy Birthday Holly

Hi Friends,

How’s things? Good I hope. Its been a rough week here at our house. Last Friday morning at 2 am I woke up with a terrible stomach bug. It was no good. I even called off work and I NEVER call off. I had no choice. I was so sick. By Saturday evening I was finally able to pull myself together and eat. I felt a little better after that. But this whole week has been tiring for me. Then Mr. Primcat got a cold, and gave it to me. Sigh. We have had it rough this last week. I hope we are on the upswing!

On to the more interesting stuff!

I have treasures to share with you today!

Check out this pretty little dresser I picked up a the GW. I think it’s just vintage. But it may be antique. Either way… I LOVE it! So precious!



Love the details! It’s missing a ring but I don’t mind!


I also picked up this adorable little apron that I enjoy wearing around the house when cooking and cleaning. I had forgotten how useful aprons really are! Smile


A cute little welcome sign.


And a drawer for hanging…


… or sitting.


And one more thing…

Today is Holly’s 5th birthday!


Happy Birthday to our baby girl. She is the best dog in the world. We just love her so very much! 


She loves hanging out in the cat enclosure and playing fetch. We have to keep the grass really short though or she gets lost! LOL! 


Being outside makes her happy!


Tonight there will be lots of treats to celebrate this little girls day and the wonderful gifts of love she brings to us every day!


Happy Birthday Holly!

Until next time…

Carmen and the Primcats
